Rasmus40 (11682) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2011
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

@ACBF 2011. The alcohol burn is quite prevalent throughout the sip - strong bourbon flavors!

larsga (6260) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2011
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.)

gEUS (1236) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2011
Agreed, there’s lots of alcohol... But what is so special is that the alcohol only comes after the taste explosion in the mouth: first a nutty hint, then chocolate and finally confited orange peels... The danger is that it srinks so easily...

KnutAlbert (6216) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2011
Sweet, vinous, mostly alcohol. Like a cheap licuor. Does not work as a beer. Brutal. A little malt extract, no bourbon character. Mostly for the Guinness book of records.

Gr0ve (2150) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2011
375 ml bottle. Cloudy brown colour Small off-white head. Intense vinous aroma with fruity esters and alcohol. Vanilla and oak. Strong sweet flavours. Candy-like. Strong oaky flavours and a very strong hop bitterness. Not even close to achieve balance, but rather intense and rough. Sweet, but also very wooden, hoppy and bitter.
