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.

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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle, courtesy madmitch76, tasted on 31 August 2009. The alcohol was hot, hot, hot. Sticky mouthfeel. Not very appealing at all. Certainly not to my taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 Bottle @ YNWA tasting.
Pours clear copper amber with no head. Aroma is heavy, lots of alcohol, but also light smoke, caramel, figs. No carbonation, rather sharp and fat oily mouthfeel. Flavour is very sharp, lots of alcohol, caramel sweetness, light burning, smoke and sweet toffee. Light brandy feel to it. Light peaty and light medicine notes. Quite an experience, but not a pleasant one overall. Still the third try is far better than the first.
