3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at home big thanks to Ken. I say thanks but erm... My god. I’ve had plenty of big beers but Christ, Eutopias, Struise Double Black, Jesus, nothing can hold a candle to this. It’s just HUGE in everyway you can imagine. Thick and syrupy. Insane alcohol. This really seperates the men from the boys. I have never seen a table full of hardened beer drinkers who really have seen it all reduced to "lost for words". This one really did it. The most hardcore sugar and barley you will ever experience. The thickest non infected beer I have ever had. Sweet caramel toffee. It should be drizzled on a creme brûlée not supped from a glass. An amazing experience and unusual for a beer of this magnitude, one I actually would like to endure again. Amazing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber orange. Looks like hard liquor at this point; brandy? Like I light cognac I guess you could say. No carbonation detcted whatsoever. Aroma is mostly of high alcohol, needless to say, and smells every bit of 30%, maybe even 35% if you really put your nose into the snifter. There are, to my surprise, some decent malt aromas way underneath all the alcohol, and even some spoiled cream a la Bernardus 12. Also some dark cherries, and offensive cheap cologne from Wears Too Much Cologne Guy. Flavor repeats the aroma profile, but adds a little honey and maple. Again, there is a good amount of sweet malt in the flavor and aftertaste. Goes down rough, as every sip is like taking a swig of true hard liquor, at least as far as one’s throat and esohapus are concerned. Final thoughts: Well, I don’t really have any. I mean, it is what it is, and it is what I expected it to be, though perhaps a little more flavorful. A novelty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle no. 13/250@home.
Pale, copper like colour, no head, no carbonation.
Aroma is honey-like with much malt and alcohol.
The taste attacks the mouth with alcohol and fruit. Peach, honey.
Aftertaste is long, sweet and balanced.
Compared with Utiopias this is an immature product. Compared with most other products with 30+ ABV this is a good beer especially if you mean that there is a beer for all occasions, also a digestive.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 Bottle. Peach and strong alcohol (obviously) aroma. Bright amber color - extremely viscous / oily that clings nicely to side of glass. Initial sensation is a burn followed by a sweet peach then the alcohol with a bitter finish. Nice warming sensation after swallowing. Much smoother than expected. A great sipping beer. Probably a great pick for beer #2666. Addendum: After 2.5 years, about the same - maybe more prune flavor and a little bit smoother.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cheramic bottle. An amber beer with no head. The aroma has strong notes of caramel soup combined with lots of alcohol, but also medium notes of over ripe fruits and prunes. The flavor is very sweet with very strong notes of alcohol, caramel, over ripe fruits, and prunes. The alcohol burns the mouth and throt, and warms for a long time. Thanks yespr for sharing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. No head. Decent legs. Liqour aroma. Loads of ripe fruits, Kikkoman and Kalas Puffar in the nose. Extremely sweet and strong flavour. Quite full bodied. Very alcoholic and unbalanced. No carbonation. Lingering alcohol burn. Serious shit. I had problems finishing the bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL bottle, courtesy of kappldav123. Pours dark orange with no head. Thick hoppy, barley and caramelish aroma, distinct alcohol burn in eyes and nose yet inviting thick aroma. Thick syrupy, dense caramelish and deep barley base. Light roasted note. Dark overripe fruity note and with a distinct alcohol presence. Warming alcohol finish with a rather complex barley composition into an extreme lasting flavourful finish. This one real gains for each (micro) sip.
