3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Taster from bottle no.16/250 at Ølbutikkens Ølsmagning, Ørsted Ølbar. Deep, dark amber body. Shiny, naked surface. Smell of alcohol sweetness. Almond and stewed fruits in flavour mixed with earthy malts and overrun by alcohol sharpness. Has got slow sipping qualities, though (Copenhagen, 06.11.2010).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 Sampled at "the strongest beer in the world" tasting session on Ørsted Ølbar. Looks like dark sticky whisky. Aroma of bakery mixed with spirits the hurts your nostrils. Sticky, palate, no carbonation. Very malty taste of bread, brewmash, caramel and suger which, because of the alchohol warms your tongue. Too sweet malty for me

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Mes and Sim’s. Dirty muddy tarry dark brown, looks a little scary. Smells like terror. Can smell it at arms length. Massive aroma, masses of alcohol and solvent abuse. It’s thick, lot’s of marmite, sugar and burnt toffee. An assault on the throat like the beer equivalent of Fedor Emelianeno. Only dare sip it. An intimidating experience. It’s like drinking bottle mither.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled @ UDRM. The aroma has malts, caramel, raisin and alcohol. Clear, orange coloured beer with no head. The taste is sweet, very alcoholic, has some medicin, smoke and aprikot. Very sticky mouthfeel. For me the best of those 30%+ beers I had so far. At a 2.8 that says enough I hope.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this one @ Unofficial Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Dark copper colored brew. Apricot and alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is apricot, mild alcohol burn, honey. Not as bad as I thought. One to sip and share with friends.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle@Home. Glad I could share this beer with a couple of friends. Very sweet, very malty and burning in your throat. Not exceptional but great digestive after a good meal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ RB meeting by Joes. A clear dark orange colored beer with no head. The aroma of malts with alcohol and dried fruits. The taste of warm alcohol, thick stickey syrup. It burns down in your throat. The aftertaste is burning from the alcohol and syrupy.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kappldav123, shared @ UDRB Oirschot. Dried fruit in the aroma. Syrupy mouthfeel. Very full bodied, thick and viscous. Loads of alcohol and notes of smoke. Interesting beer, in fact a good beer, but I would never be able to finish a full bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Dutch RB meeting, thanks for sharing bierkoning! Pours an almost clear deep orange color with floaties and no head. Very alcoholic aroma with a deep malt base and slightly fruity. Stingy to the nose and intense. Flavor is very syrupy sweet, smoky, fruits, antique wood varnish, and with a definite alcohol burn, although it not that harsh. It’s like sweet liquor instead of beer.
