ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Spice. Sweet malts. Trace of vanilla, perhaps a bit stronger than the light toast. Dried fruits, turning tangy. Some heat, but not in proportion to it’s giant abv. Light semi dry finish. Spicy linger. Almost identical rating for an almost identical beer!

Scopey (8328) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at ChrisO. Thanks to Kenny.... It pours oily golden-amber with minimal head. The nose is sweet, oily, toasty, woody, generic fruits, caramel, dried apricot and booze. The taste is sweet, earthy, toasty, grainy, leather, booze, dried fruits, alcohol burn, caramel and toffee with a warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Not as much depth as I had hoped for this sort of beer. OK.

Bottle share at ChrisO’s. Cloudy orange, some suspended particles, small bubbly white head. Aroma is sherry, plastic, woody, vinegar. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is boozey, lemony, sherry, twiggy. Strong booze. Pretty, pretty similar to the light toasted version I had immediately before it.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle, 375cl. A hazy, dark orange-golden beer with a minimal off-white head. The aroma is quite boozy, very boozy in fact, with fruityness, peaches, piney hints and sugary sweetness. It’s very sweet on the palate, fruity and resiny, with booze and peaches. It’s full-bodied and warming, with a soft carbonation level. Lasting boozy finish with lots of fruityness and sweetness. Overall, way too boozy this one, but there’s sure some nice qualities going on. 150124

Pinball (11055) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2015
clear golden, small white head. boozy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, phenolic feeling to the aroma if you sniff fast. still, aroma seems more rounded as millenium as i remember it, so you could argue the aroma is sort of soft for that high an abv. flavor is warming, malts, very nice soft caramelly note, alcohol and wood add bitterness. compared with many kinds of booze at much larger abv, this one is still tasty, and should perhaps be enjoyed like a good whisky rather than like a good barleywine. Not worth the price you pay for it, but it is an experience that you probably won’t get in any other way.
