shrubber85 (9019) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2009
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.

Deep amber with no head. Intense alcohol in the aroma. with a touch of malt. Hot and spirit-like alcohol dominates the flavour, with syrupy malt sweetness. Too raw to be really drinkable, but I appreciate the experiment.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Ceramic bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yepr. Pours an almost clear dark amber with no head at all. Intensely sweet liqueur aroma with lots of alcohol. Comes thick and syrupy and completely flat. Intense and almost biting alcohol on the tongue. Caramel notes without being really sweet, a smoky edge and alcohol fumes that makes you cough. Quite different from the other Schorsbräus making this drinkable and interesting in tiny samples. 240709

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
It’s a dark golden beer without any head and a very oily mouthfeel. The aroma has sweetness and notes of raisin, alcohol, malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, caramel, malt, raisin and figs. The alcohol is strong and warming, but IMO a bit too dominating, but on the other hand, it is a strong beer, so it is expected.

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.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - AUG 7, 2009
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.

Svein (2) - Rykkinn, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2009 does not count
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.
