The new world strongest beer - I thing it will keep this record for a certain time. Extremely rare (only 15 bottles right now), also quite expensive. The bottle looks absolutely great, hand signed and numbered by the brewmaster. Deep golden in the glass, shows streaks, of course no head. Starts extremely hot and alcoholic, very, very strong, brings you almost to tears. But shows also fruity notes of apricot, also a bit woody, not just alcohol. Burning and intense finish, warming aftertaste, I feel it going down through my body. Drinkability of course is not the highest, but after the first gulp I really like to take the next one. I love extreme beers and this one is extreme at its best!

330mL flip-top shared by noodleuser. Thanks Joel! The pour is a flat, deep reddish amber with very intense legs forming with a good swirl. Looks like bourbon. Nose is much better than expected. Really no acetone or fusel. Instead, big ass sugar and cherry pie. Heavy pie crust, baked cherries, rich and heavy profile. A bit of alcohol sting. Really nice though. Taste is sugary, cherry, pretty mild alcohol warming. Still tons of cherry pie and pie crust. Extremely long finish with some pretty substantive esophagus burn. Odd...different from typical bourbon/Scotch. Overall, much better than I expected and certainly worth trying for kicks.

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!

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2010
Sampled at "the strongest beer in the world" tasting session on Ørsted Ølbar. The best of the three. Dark amber with a micro head (but there was one) Aroma of alchohol, brewmash and caramel malt. Not as sweet and sticky as the 31% one but more wellrounded though its more of a bourbon then a beer. Oc alchohol dominated flavor.

KimJohansen (10423) - 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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Bottle. Courtesy of yespr. Pours thick and syrupy amber with no head. Fat, meaty aroma with a strong alcohol that makes you cough. Thick body, sticky and syrupy with absolutely zero carbonation. Loads of caramel, smoky accents - quite a lot of smoke actually. Alcohol all the way through, burning, burning alcohol. A very interesting experiment. 080210

Ungstrup (34708) - 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.
