Bottle at Chris’ Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia tasting. Thanks Ken for bringing this. Orange gold colour. Syrupy hot alcohol that burns your nose. Just a burning spirit. Some esters, toffee on aroma. Lots of caramel. Malty syrup. Then burn on end. Thanks Ken.

planky84 (1930) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle at Chris O’s courtesy of Ken. Amber pour no head. Bloody nora, that’s a fierce burning nose! Burnt caramel, vanilla and toffee aromas. Meaty,smoky, woody, caramel, dried fruit flavours. Sweet and malty finish. Huge alcohol incineration!

Raw sheer alcohol. Caramel body, honey and resin hops..Intense smell. Raw alcohol in bottle. Not at all drinkable. Finish is long. Sorry but I didn’t like this it all. Major thanks to MadMitch76 for his extreme effort and devotion into obtaining this

thewolf (11129) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2010
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep brown amber with no head. Kinda okay aroma, malty, some smoke, caramel and quite vinious. Tickles my nose a bit. Fat oily mouthfeel, almost no carbonation - just a little bit of a tickle. Flavour has smoke, alcohol, fat caramel, some rubber, burning in my throat. Fine, lingering smokiness with alcohol burning my chheks. Good toffee as well. Far better than the 32%

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Hazy amber with no head. Aroma of malt, fortified wine and dried fruit with sharp alcohol. The first second, before the alcohol burn, the flavour is fruity and malty, with a hint of smoke. Then arrives a wave of salmiak (salty licorice, popular in Scandinavia), before a hot alcohol finish that burns your mouth. Quite interesting.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Clear amber with no head. Sweet aroma with plenty of alcohol, smoke and caramel notes. Sweet flavour with smoke, alcohol, caramel and honey notes. Finished boozy. Like the smokyness but the alcohol is a bit to much.

Ungstrup (29145) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottled. A ver dark golden beer - no head - I wonder why... The aroma is extremely powerful of alcohol - beware of inhaling too much, combined with strong notes of caramel and fruits, as well as hints of smoke. The flavor is very sweet with extreme strong notes of alcohol that burns and warms the tongue and the palate, combined with strong notes of caramel and perfume as well as some notes of smoke, leading to a dry caramel and alcoholic finish, where the alcohol burns the whole mouth. It ought to have 6 in palate.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Bottled. Thx. Yespr for sharing. Clear light amber coloured. NO head. Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, perfume, sweetness. Quite intense. Smoke, perfume, dense alcohol, sweetness, spice and some caramel. Medium to full bodied. Ends on a alcoholdense caramelly sweetness with a light touch of smoke. Interesting, but definately not beery in any way.
