1.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Beer? Are you sure? More like alcoholic Karo syrup. If you are gonna drink this, you must sip it. Very very strong, very thick, and reminds me more of Jagermeister than a beer. Tried to get some friends to help me finish the bottle, but no-one would drink more than a sip so I had to finish it myself. The high alcohol content is very noticeable. Felt like the fumes of an everclear shot permeating from my throat after every sip. Pretty bottle though...thatís about it.

I wanted to like it, and did until the wicked essence of Jagermeister aftertaste kicked in and wrecked the whole thing. I doubt cellaring could help it.

I, for one, like this a lot. Donít regard it as a beer per se, but put it in a brandy snifter and donít try to finish the whole thing in one sitting, for Godís sake.

Very dark brown, this beer colorizes the glass ! No foam. Its aroma is very intense and thick with a touch of mocha. Chocolate, sweet and very pleasant. Very long aftertaste. I want more !

This beer is simply too thick and syrupy to be enjoyable. I couldnít finish the first bottle. I think Iíll give away the second.

Great looking crystal-blue bottle. I guess they felt the need to dress the bottle up to hide the fact that this beer is not very good.

Cask conditioned version with raspberries. Smells like raisins. Initial flavor interesting and complex, but finishes with a distinct peanut butter flavor. Consistency of cough syrup. Bottled version much more enjoyable.
