Pours a mid-copper body with some dandruff particulates under a fast white head. Wanted to rate and drink this fast (while still cold) knowing this could become a real beast as it warms. (And I was right.) Aromas of big, raw alcohol off the top of sugary caramel with a lemongrass twist. Mid-bodied, a little sticky and totally sugary to the mouth. Alcohol presents mildly at first in the flavor, until it warms and becomes a big issue, almost like a high ABV wine. The remainder of the flavor is a ham-handed blend of highly-sugared caramel with splashes of tart, grassy Continental hops and sour grapes. I saved the last sip until it approached room-temperature and, yes... at that point this became a real challenge to finish. Overall, not a total failure, but I’d recommend you split a bottle amongst 3 or 4 friends while the alcoholic flavors are still muted by the cold. ~~~~~~ "Pint" bottle from Kenwood Liquors, Homer Glen, IL, purchased approx. 2 weeks ago.

50cl bottle: Pours a clear deep amber bronze with a large bubbled, shortly-lived off-white head. Has a sweet sugary caramel and toffee nose with a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with light carbonation and sugary malty sweetness with some fusels and warming strawberry notes with some noble bittering hoppiness. A little over the top in terms of alcohol and residual sugars, but at least it was cheap.

Translucent copper with no head, syrupy medium-full body with medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: fruity yeast esters, fusel alcohols, and a bit a caramel malt.

Taste: Tons of fruity esters and hot fusel alcohols, with some sweet caramel malt in the background.

Strong pale lager –certainly. Doppelbock or triple bock –no way. How about Imperial Malt Liquor, that’ll cover it. I’ve had many beers much higher in alcohol than this, that were much smoother and less harsh. High ABV is all this beer really has to offer. I can see some interesting uses or pairings for this, but it’s not something I would drink by itself for enjoyment.

Finhead (1258) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2011
A hazy, orange pour with a white head. It has a bubblegum aroma with some faint floral notes. The medium body has a slick texture with average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a strong alcohol flavor and warmth that stays for a long finish.

Orange in color with pretty much no head at all. Flavor is that of a high gravity malt liquor, though missing much of the rancid paint thinner found in most American varieties.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2011
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.

Cybercat (3646) - Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2011
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.

Ratman197 (10436) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2011
500 ml bottle poured a clear orange with no head. Aromas of carmel, candied fruit alcohol and light honey. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of carmel, candied fruit, light honey and light alkcohol with a smooth warming lingering sweet finish.

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?
