Holy shitballs!!!! 19.1%?!?!? The beer is a hazy pinkish red but that might just be the colour in this room messing my eyes up. It has a light tan head that foamed up waaaaaay more than I assumed it would considering my previous experience with stupidly high alcohol. It has simmered down to a skiff but left a couple of rings of lacing. Holy shit. Four sips and I can feel this already. The aroma is absolutely faaaabulous. Smooth sweet succulent stuff here, amazingly awesome fruit, some caramel and some booze. No nasty alcohol nose what so ever. Honey, Contact C powdery citrus, more sweetness and bread crusts, 2-0 Vancouver!!!!!!! The goals are making me drink this much too fast. Bit of toffee, more excellent fruit, oranges. This tastes pretty fucking fine. Way better than the regular version. Boozy and undeniably excellent. Caramel, some interesting spice now that I’ve gotten close to the bottom of the bottle and may have got some sediment swirled in. Wood is not quite hidden, the % is quickly sinking in and making giving me Chinese eyes at this point in the night. I have the greatest life! Smooth spice, citrus that is somehow orange related.. how I do not know, I can feel a bit of alcohol heat but at 19.1% this is a joke how little there is. OK, so opening an secong son wasnt a good idea as i thype this in 45 mintues later, i shitfaced, ahhah lots of red quicgley lines, gvn amoth smooth light bite, i dig this alot. concentrate contcentrate. Just did tyhe sludge money shot and now my teeht are burnging. I love this beer and how it has turned me into a homeless crack adict

OleR (4752) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2011
0.375L bottle kindly shared by larsga. Low, lightly tanned head. Body is amber to light brown with ok clarity. Aroma starts with sweet alcohol steam in your face. Some fruit and bourbon and chewy malts can be noticed. Sweet and boozy flavor. Thick malty. Barrel tones and noticable bittering hops. Fat and syrupy in the mouth. Hot alcolhol finish. What a monster!

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2011
Thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass also, brown, very small head. Fiery aroma. Starts very strong, malty, some fruity notes, but alcohol is dominating. Burning finish, a bit oily, long warming aftertaste. Really impressing beer!

Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malty, dried fruit and moderate alcoholic. Flavor is very sweet and light bitter. Very sweet finish with loads of alcohol. Sticky. Too sweet and too much alcohol for my liking. 230311

Medium beige head. Hazy brown body. Alcoholic fruity aroma. Sweet alcoholic taste with raisiny fruity notes. Full-bodied. Hot, sharp mouthfeel. Dry-sweet wine grapes and sugar aftertaste with oily hoppy notes. Lots of alcohol, but not much else. (0.375l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)
