4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours muddy red-brown with very thin white head. The aroma is sweet, with traces of caramel, nuts, and not-fully-ripe fruit. Very smooth palate. The flavor is big and smoky and includes some cedar, raisins, semi-sweet caramel, and surprisingly little alcohol. Good stuff, this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost no head with low carbonation. Reddish brown hue. Dry and light smoke but rich fruity smoothness. It is a complex taste with an underlying bitterness throughout. A caramelish sweetness hits the tongue first and as it goes down it expands to sweet bitter fruitiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Burnt caramel, small off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing, very little carbonation. Smoked peat nose, fig & soft apple skin as well. Heavy smoked aspect on the tongue, peaty, some charcoal or charred wood. Slightly sweet. Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate. Loads of apple skin on the exit. Starts out as a Scottish but finishes not as peaty or smokey as it started. Tiz decent tho. Thanks mattbob for sharing!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Perfect if your looking to get falling down drunk, though of little merit otherwise. It certainly lives up to its name on the morning after an overly generous consumption. Fun as a novelty, but lacking as a beer.

Dissappointedly oiley and my label is different. Too much carbonation settled quickly leaving little lacing (weird). But minus the texture issue, nice taste chocolate covered cherryesq with a finish of too much sweetness.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Drank this one out of a 12oz. bottle. The packaging was different and much more badass than the picture shown here and that’s what caught my attention. The flavor was smoky and ashy. I was disgusted at first buy it grew on me and became delicious. Still to this day i don’t know if i enjoyed it or not. Definitly unique in its own filthy way.

This is an extremely drinkable beer, even though it has such a high amount of flavor and alcohol. Reminds me of a belgian ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden color and white head. Has an almost lambic aroma. A winelike taste that becomes more pronounced as the beer warms.

Bottled. Hazy brown colour, yellow/beigeish creamy head. Bitterish cranberry aroma with some notes of alcohol. Sweet plum and raisins in flavour along with hints of alcohol. The alcohol fits in well though. Very pleasant.

To me, this tastes like some type of double bock. really malty and like alcohol. Nothing great, and again proving that i just hate any european version of a beer style. no matter how original it is.
