2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another gem from Rinkuškiai! It poured an amber/bronze body with a steady rise of bubbles. The head vanished so quickly, I almost didn’t note that it was off-white and fizzy. The aroma is perfumey, a sweet blending of caramel, floral scents, and alcohol. The chief component of the flavor is the alcohol, and every slug of the beer made me feel as if I’d just chased a shot of Bourbon. A floral bitterness came through in the finish. Wunnerful!

500ml, Seattle. Odd find, odd beer. Honey brown pour, heavy and slick looking. No head at all after a few seconds, heavy looking. Aroma is strange medicinal-floral alcohol. smoky honey. Taste is huge alc, slick sour lager. Heavy with some burn. don’t know what to make of this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma is fruity with a malty undertone and hints of yeast and caramel. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, off-white head. Crisp, malty and fruity flavor has hints of caramel and butterscotch, as well as a strong if not fierce alcohol nip. Lively, fizzy texture has quite a sharp edge and leaves behind a fairly persistent and pleasant fizz.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Really, Just not a good idea. Just not a good idea. It is super alcoholic, and not much else. Did I mention not a good idea?

2nd try from this Lithuanian brewery. I promise I didn’t purchase this because of the giant red tag labeled 12% abv. I’m actually getting this because my friend collects bottle caps and she lost my last donation from their "Werewolf." Okay, the beer...it’s f’n gasoline with no carbonation and I sort of like it! Not anywhere close to real craft beer, but not as piss pour as one would suspect. Lots of caramel malts and noticeable alcohol, but somehow not as "hot" as it should be for 12%.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a one, three-finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied (thinner than I expected). Light alcohol and caramel nose, flavor has hints of alcohol, caramel, hops are in background, not cloying. Not as bad as the ratings suggest. $4.50 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden body with hardly any head. Aromas of banana, vanilla, caramel, cardboard, and honey. Husky and grainy. Flavors of honey, light esters, alcohol, and not much else to be honest. A little grassy and boozy. Honestly not offensive as the last beer I had (listed as a BSA...sure). Lively bubbles. Alcoholic. Honestly not a bad European [lets be honest] malt liquor. Nearly worth repeating at a $2.00 for a 500ml if you want to get your BMC friends drunk.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bronzed body, ring of head, heavy carbonation. Sugary sweetness pierces the nostrils. Honey tipped and lightly flowery. Thinnish body, but strong. Flowery and estery. Could be worse, but as it stands, this is akin to a slightly more refined version of high octane malt liquor.
