3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 21/12/2007. Billiant amber, with an airy white head. Dried fruit, caramel and perfume on the nose. Caramel and strong alcohol note is prominent in the mouth. Sweet, full-bodied and definitely a "sipper". Wasn’t all that keen on EKU 28 but I think I preferred it to this. Both beers seemed to be dominated by cloyingly sweet malt and the alcohol, without anything to give them a moreish character. Might try putting a couple of bottles away for a few years, to see if the develop a bit more complexity.

Wow. Smells almost like rotten apples and a Belgium Quad. Pours a ruby brown colour. Taste is VERY sweet. You can taste the booze. Hardly any carbonation. Hard aftertaste. Overall I’m glad I tried this beer. When I got up I felt it. Will not buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on

Bottle @ home(Thanks to Sebelinz) Apperance: Clear dark orange with small white head,that disappears fast. Aroma: sweet, malts, caramel,booze
Taste: malts, sugar, caramel alcohol,some raisins. A bit too sweet and boozy, lacking complexity. Low carbonation, medium body.
Maybe it’s to young I got another from my brother,. And I will see if that one will be great in 5 years.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2016 330ml bottle.
Nose is sweet malt with rum and raisin notes with a background of pure alcohol.
Poured dark red amber with very slight head.
I would describe the taste as liquid Christmas cake with plenty of brandy.
One (singular) to enjoy by the fire in winter after a good meal with or without a good cigar.
Austria is now ticked.

Pours a reddish-brown, almost a garnet, from a bottle, quickly dissipating off-white head, no lacing, no retention. Butterscotch, roasted chestnuts and cherry jam in the nose, similar flavor but the butterscotch is deepened into thick caramel, very boozy. Good beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crystal clear amber color with xopper undertones, staying tan head, formal lable.
Intense alcoholic nose, barnyard.
Very full body, particularly for a lager, assertive and dense flavor, burning hot mouthfeel, lingering aftertaste.
Extremely but not unpleasantly sweet, balanced by bitter background.
Self description as "Malt Liquor" is very accurate. Complex, malty taste of caramel, barley drops, yeast, fruit.
Huge beer, delicious, uncommon.
