Euro Super High Alcohol Lager. Orange-gold. Smell is of rich full caramel malt and well straw. Smooth and well ballanced, with just enough malt and hops to add a fruity taste. Alcohol flavor is not prevalent despite 14% ABV, almost is not noticable until you’re through. Really good with BQ pork or pulled pork.

Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Brown sugar nose and flavor is a lot of maple/brown sugar, sweetness hiding the very high ABV. $3.90 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

CLear golden pour with fair bright white head. Syrupy and aggressively sweet. But goddamn this hides the abv incredibly well. Reminds me of a very mellow version of a samichlaus. Surprised at how good this is despite the high abv. But hella sweet. Awesome label.

Bottle. Vegetal/old orange and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with no head. Sweet sugary biscuit malt flavor. Light alcohol finish. Not as horrible as I was afraid it would be.

Patrickctenchi (4255) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle: Bubbly, clear orange/amber with a soapy white head. Bready, fruit, stale orange, alcohol aroma. Taste is boozy, corn, grain, orange, light caramel malt..... Not as awful as I expected, but pretty abysmal. Sticky, boozy...a mess, basically..... However, the label art is a killer.

500ml bottle has a great label and cheap pricetag. Having tried other strong beers from this brewery, my expectations were low, and this is as bad as the others. Pours a clear orange/amber with small white head and no lacing. Aroma is Frosted Flakes and vodka: corn, sugar, and booze. Taste is sweet with a slightly bitter boozy finish. Body is medium without much carbonation. ""Quad Bock" on the label is hype, just to outdo Rinkuslai’s Before and After "triple bock", which is still my favorite label on a cheap high ABV beer. If you have a strong stomach and enjoy punishing yourself, I recommend this, even though I’m writing this before I know how bad I’ll feel after finishing it.

16.9 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma is very sweet caramel and alcohol. Taste is sweet, sweet and more sweet with a harsh alcohol bite.

22 ounce bottle. Orange amber color with a disappearing white head. Sweet boozy toasted malt nose reminiscent of caramel and baked potato. Sweet malt flavor has one note; alcohol. This reminds me of iced tea mixed with grain alcohol. Ugh! What was I thinking? Stay away, unless you are looking for a cheap buzz and subsequent headache.

HourGlass13 (150) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a clear orangish amber, with moderate head. Aroma is caramel malt. light carbonation. Has a bit of burn, and noted alcohol presence. Somewhat sweet malty caramel taste. Definitely a hard hitter with the high ABV, but unique and very drinkable. Recommended.

Pours a bright orange color with a small head that goes away quickly.

The aroma is truly stomach turning, it’s basically caramel & cheap vodka. It’s the sort of aroma that warns you not to take a sip.

The flavor does have some defined maltiness, I guess... but it still just pretty much tastes like cheap booze and caramel mostly,,, and medicine.

It’s truly everything I hoped it would be...
It’s worth noting that after I had tried this beer, and decided that I thought it was almost unbearably awful... I still considered purchasing a bottle when I saw one for sale because of how awesome the label is.
