UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Ahhh... Big, malty, and sweet. That's how I like 'em... Pours a glowing orange amber with a foamy white head and great lace. Sweetly delicious aroma--honey, molasses, brown sugar, a bit of booze, the works... A slight tartness compliments the sweetness but wanes to just sweetness dried out by alcohol. Easy drinking for 9.6% ABV. Hell, it's easy drinking period. Sticky sweet and wonderful. It's like drinking honey in heaven.

Very interesting body on this one - seemingly changes colours: from a light pumpkin orange to a red-brown amber. Sparse, large bubbled head. Winey alcoholic grape aroma with a chewy maltiness that has some raisins, kiwi, strawberry, but is all overpowered by the alcohol. Palate is surprisingly clean, but masks the alcohol poorly. There were some good piney notes in the finish, I didn't particularly enjoy this one.

clear honey golden with a thin but lasting white head. aroma is part raisin, part alcohol and part vegetal. flavor is part sugar, part metallic and maybe chocolate??? hmm..cool, i'm the 100th rater of this beer.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2003
Light copper with virtualy no head. Sweet like cotton candy with cedar chips. Upfront it's sweet and mild with a woody middle and a brandyish finish. Alcohol noticeable and it warms all the way down from lips to belly. Not for the timid.

Single malt aroma, deep amber, with a finger of white foam. Pronounced malt flavour, full bodied, alcohol is subtle, with some sweetness. Most Impressive!

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Interesting gold color for the style, not much head due to abv. Yeasty, fruity, and alcohol aroma. Strong flavor consisted of liquorice with some very sweet malt and fruit. Strong alcohol burn. Big body. Quite interesting, not bad either.

Dense rocky head, intense aroma and flavor: rich malt, alcohol, sweet apricots and peaches. A monster.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - OCT 1, 2003
11.2 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. None needed either. This is one powerful beer. Poured out a pale, straw yellow color, with a very fast fading white head. It did, however, leave a slight ring of lacing around the edge of the glass. Aromas right away are of strong yeast, pale malts, and a slight fruitiness as well. Tastes even stronger than it's cousin, Urbock Eisbock. Man, this beer will take your breath away. Tastes very strongly of alcohol at first, then the malts kick in to take the egde off. Not much bitterness here, hop wise. Surprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber.

Golden color. Sweet aroma, close to some barleywine, lighter; light malt and very ligh liquorice and banana. Good body strength and structure, not too sweet, final well bitter; quite malty. Not my favorite style, but well brewed; well balanced.
