Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Ronny (rlgk), split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Clear pale golden with off white spotting and edgework. Nose is boozey, honey, light spice, woody tones, bitter fruit, nail polish. Taste comprises caramel, light spice, sweet licks, dark stoned fruits, sugars, booze but not 19% worth. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the finish. Decent for the ABV but definately one to share and not one I’d be rushing back for.

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a light straw with a thin very broken white head. The aroma is sweet sticky malt fruit. The flavour is s medium sweet light bitter with a huge rich oily sweet boozy alcoholic fruit palate. Full bodied with flat carbonation. It’s all about the alcohol for me. Don’t drink this in pints :-)

JulienHuxley (2515) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle shared by Benzai at joes’. Clear pale gold pour with a few bubbles of white foam. Boozy aroma, lots of (rubbing) alcohol, apricot, peach, very light oak notes. Taste is quite hot, very boozy, fruity, grainy finish, light oak notes. Palate is hot, light-medium carbonation. Nice beer, just very boozy.

Benzai (6432) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle shared with Joes, Dutchdrebus, Abijen, Judyvv and JulienHuxley. Clear a bit fluorescent orange color, small white head. Smell sweetness and alcoholic, reminds me of some kind of sterilising fluid though -as far as that’s possible- not in a bad way. Taste alcohol, fruits like apricot and peach, sweetness, burning alcohol warmth. Full body, medium carbonation. Heavy and very strong indeed.

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
(forêt tasting - six of them) pours hazy golden orange with a small white cap, legs are sticky. candy floss. mead, booze, caramel, soft woodsy notes, grass, nice fruitiness - peaches, berries and apples. moderate to soft carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, sweetness kept under control which is appreciable, bold grassy-spicy-peppery and lightly tannic finish. surprisingly enjoyable - or maybe this small pour got me drunk already.
