Bottle 330ml (#35/36) @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012
[Courtesy of some crazy russian] Pours clear deep golden with no head. Aroma is very malty and boozy. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long boozy, malty warming finnish. Body is full, texture is oily to sticky, carbonation is flat.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is densely concenrated. Bread like malt mostly. Looks like cognac in glass, no head. Dark roasted malty nucleus. Lots of strong taste. Surprisingly beerlike even though it is not, heh. Like beerbottle gone through black hole and U cought the densified stuff from "the other side". Oily mouth warmer for the winter time. If beer had bones then this would be bonemarrow. I found it interesting altough it is not really that "beery".

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a nauseating ruby red with a ruddy brown head. The faintest hint of lacing. Heavy lemony scent, with notes of biscuit malt and orange. Minimal minty palate, and I also get some molasses and sherry. Extremely weak mouthfeel and light finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[5/11/12] Bottle sample from some guy at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Clear amber. Aroma of lots of alcohol (burns the nostrils), malt, honey and a faint hint of smoke. Very sweet flavor, tastes a lot like Marmite spread, with tons of alcohol, malt and honey. Every sip is a shock to the senses. Has some small qualities, but incredibly hard to drink. Glad I got to try it even though it’s pretty bad.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Sample at CBC. One bottle of this providing about 120 ticks for the crew seeing that a thimble size was all that was needed and all that could be tolerated. Viscous clear amber. Heavy legs. Starchy red rice wine Chinese huangjiu nose with mega heavy gold raisin smack down. Taste is unpalatably hot. Mouth on fire. Throat on fire. Esophagus on fire. Can’t take it anymore. Why did this happen? Am I balimic?

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from bottle shared at CBC. Clear amber pour with no head. Aroma of malt, caramel and of course alcohol. Some malt in the flavour hints that once this was a "normal" beer, but as expected it’s mainly just full on alcohol. Interesting to try, but not a session beer!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
7th April 2012
ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Bottle thanks to Papsoe (and Yespr and Kappaldav123 I think). Clear red-brown beer. No head. Smooth palate that quickly turns dry from the alcohol. Supersweet caramel and toffee turning tangy. Huge amounts of alcohol burn leaving mouth numb. Tracks warm going down the gullet (like a spirit). Great effort getting to 57% but lets hope that’s an end to this trend. None of the beers above the Struise Messy at 39.0% have really come across as beers or been particularly enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Chriso’s Easter tasting 2012, thanks to madmitch76. It pours deep ruby, with no head. The nose is burnt cake, cinnamon, golden syrup, toffee and dark fruit. The taste is dark tangy fruit, cinnamon, syrupy, toffee, brown bread, salted beef, nail polish remover and gasoline, with a long, deep alcohol burn. Full body and low carbonation. It was certainly an experience to drink this, just not one I would like to repeat!
