2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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?
