2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a moderately carbonated pinkish orange. Medium head, small amount of sticky white lacing. Aromas and taste of bannana bread, fuel, slight dogfish nail polish remover yeast, sweet barley, tons of caramel malt and crystal malt. I understand this beer was 18% but it was still very hot in the chest. Not hidden well at all. Finishes with a boozey mango mead flavor and aftertaste

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home. Burgundy, Dr. Pepper colored appearance with really no head. Strong, sweet, berry, vinous, boozy nose. Strong, boozy, sweet berry, incredibly malty flavor with a big warming finish. Not really my cup of tea.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Foil and corked and caged
Dark, clear, orange amber color. No head at all. Thick and syrupy looking. Big ABV legs.
Nose is dark fruits, lots of brown sugar, some sherry or oxidation in the nose, or is it nail polish remover?
Cardboard and dark fruit taste. Interesting mix. Bread, alcohol, and melted brown sugar. Slightly thin really.
Lots of heat in the palate. Tongue is quite numb after a few sips. Sweet, slick and syrupy. No carbonation. Just really all over the board and not in a good way.
Slow sipper and and not that great make for a bad experience.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy amber, no head.Very sweet. Sugar and pineapple-like hops. Fruity and syrupy with massive alcohol burn and inky bitterness. Too sweet, too strong, too bitter. A good recipe that hasnít survived the upramping to these extreme levels.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This one is cloudy orange with a little head the dissipates quickly. The aroma is honey. Taste very very honey sweet with an alcohol finish. It flows across the palate slightly sticky. Overall way way to sweet for my taste.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
too sweet with an unpleasant sour taste. Astringent in taste as well as aroma. Not really my thing.
