(Flasche) Es hat eine fast schwarze Farbe mit einer braunen, kurzlebigen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist dunkel, schwer, malzig, alkoholisch, röstig und ein klein bisschen dunkle Johannisbeere. Der Geschmack ist ähnlch wie das Aroma mit zusätzlich einer fast rauchigen Note im Abgang und einem aschigen Nachgeschmack.

333 fliptop from Duty Free shop in Frankfurt Airport. The wax is strong! Pours very dark brown with ruddy glints and no head. Aroma is alcohol and a suggestion of banana. Full bodied +. Flavor is alcohol/heat, very dark malt, very dark fruit, and maybe some banana. There’s a lot of strong flavor here. An experience to be savored. To be repeated? Time will tell.

Opaque dark brown beer, no head! Nose of molasses and chocolate liqueur. Palate is soft and viscous. Very moderate carbonation. Sweet sticky malt with chocolate and molasses. Moderate spirit imparts warmth but it’s not overwhelming. Finishes semi dry. Actually, not bad!

You know what...... this is a 20% beer that stays drinkable thats almost enough said. Black brown body with a respectable cap given the insane alcohol. Taste and nose are basicaly the same. I ASK ASK YOU WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT PROPER SPELLING ANS GRAMMER???? Massive burnt brown sugar with almost a soya but not. Underlying grape juice, mild to moderate heat, kind of but not pine. Whooooohoooooo words rock!!! Watching that Oz pre-quil........ I’d nail Meg, I don’t care she’s green and jagged. Good well grafted beer that remains easy to drink.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 17, 2013
15/04 A 0.1 l bottle from Ammersin liquor store, Vienna. It poured dark brown, still body with very thick and slow legs. Aroma of some dark fruits, especially dried figs. Just a light glue off-note. Sweet flavor, caramel toasty and fruity, touch of wood or nuts, and of course alcoholic. Full, sticky body. Long, slightly tingling and warming aftertaste. Totally OK for a strong eisbock, drinkable, enjoyable, alcohol bites of course but nothing unbearable.

0.1l bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy who got it in Austria. Yay, my first Schorschbräu beer. Poured a very dark brown body, didn’t let any light through, but heavy insists that it’s clear so ok. Soy sauce, raisins, salty, plastic, sweet malty nose... heck, it burns my eyes trying to sniff it in a wide glass... that’s a first. The taste is, as expected, a sweet soy sauce, bomb but with a distinct chocolatey layer that seems nearly permanent and is the redeeming force of this. Oh, sure, so strange, messy notes of glue and plastic pop through, some rotten bananas even, this is more burning than warming, and all, but it manages to be interesting in a way. Definitely close to what I expected of this, a shade better, though hardly a beer I’d return to... often or not.

Reimer96 (1062) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown with no head but is very think and syrupy leaving huge legs on the glass. Aroma is intense sweet malts, alcohol, fruity esthers, dark dried fruits however it isn’t harsh or solventy. Taste is rich sweet malts balanced with the alcohol, slight chocolate and caramel with a weird sour alcohol flavor. Overall it’s a nice beer to have tried but it’s a bit too thick and syrupy and sticky on the mouth to really enjoy.
