Hazy amber. Alcohol scent with a citrus note. Malty & heavy, but cleansed by the hops mixing in and then balancing for the finish. Alcohol is present, but not offensive. I was pleasantly surprised with the character.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Nice amber/light brown color,small off white head that faded slowly leaving a slight lace behind.The aroma was light malt some caramel and a slight hint of alcohol.The flavor was malty with a decent caramel taste some hints of hops and in the beginning theres a slight oily feel that smooths out in the middle .The alcohol is definatley noticable in the middle and fades in the end.I guess i’d have to say i like this brew,not saying it’s great or anything but it has a certain quality that kind of draws you in.

Aroma has a nice malt note, caramel, and light sugary aroma. Appearance is a clear light brown with a off-white head that is quite carbonated. Taste consists of a definite caramel note, bread, a nice malt texture, and a strange vegetable note. This is a really interesting beer. Palate is carbonated, really sticky, and rather dry. Overall, It’s pretty decent beer. Something I would try again just because I thought this beer was somehow strange, but in a good way.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 I tried this again and still thought it was decent, but not great. Purchased in Kansas City. The head was a very light khaki color with a dark orange body underneath. The aroma was caramel with some rhubarb. The taste was toffee with some iced tea and a little bit of peanuts. An interesting beer that is surprisingly easy to drink. I enjoyed this one, especially since it almost seems like a pumped up bitter with lots of malt and roasted character.

Crystal clear amber with a moderate, fading head, medium carbonation. Aroma is light caramel with a whiff of sweet alcohol. Alcohol is somewhat hidden but still quite evident. Sweet at first, then drying. Body is not too heavy. Finish is hot, fruity, and boozy. Tastes of nuts, bread, apples and vodka. Like a strong lager/malt liquor, and not a bad one -- quite decent actually.

Pours a four finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Almost clear amber color. Very light carbonation and medium bodied. Malty nose. Starts sweet not cloying more like a sweet/sour apple cider, hops and high ABV are in background. $2.99 for a 500ml bottle from John’s Market Place Tigard, Or.

"Tamsusis Alus Dark Beer Tamsusis Alus Dark Beer Tamsusis Alus Dark" This is your mantra... Clear bronze coloration, with no head to be seen. Aroma of blistering hot malt, stinging grain. sweet caramel, and then....dry and fierce... Taste: sweet, malty, then hot, again, ending fruity. Not bad, but far from mellow. A tasty Lithuanian malt liquor. Rather big booze quotient for such a medium-bodied lager, but nice and inoffensive. ’Cept I’m getting a little buzzed here...aw, but thas alride, iddn’t id? Nowha’ ah mean? Zzzz.... What? Wuh? Ha! Who wansa pieca me, eh?

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle: Poured a true amber with a thin head. Slightly burnt caramel aroma. The flavor is thickly sugared, molasses and cooked sugar ... you can taste the alcohol. Quite a hefty brew.

Copper color,monster short lived head. Aroma is grains and slightly burnt toast with some toffee. Tastes how it smells with a slightly dryish old attic dust finish.
