2006 nip bottle, #74/100, generously shared by Beastiefan2k! Pours a caramel amber with a thin and spotty tan head. Aroma is very malty, with caramel, light toffee, a little honey sweetness, and surprisingly minimal but notable alcohol. As expected the alcohol is there on the flavor, but smooth and tame enough to keep things on track. More big malts, toffee and caramel. Interesting stuff and sure glad for the chance to try, thanks again Eugene.

2006 nip bottle graciously shared by beastiefan2k. Bottle number 74 of 100. Pour is mostly clear brown amber, with a thin film of a tan head. Aroma is big, chewy malt, along with a bright floral sweetness. Taste is like an apertif, boozy, but refined with the bright caramel maltiness. The floral sweetness is present, balanced along with a nice integrated alcohol heat. Palate is medium to heavy, coats the mouth, as mentioned has the mouthfeel of a liquer. This was a really interesting beer, thanks for opening it up for us Eugene.

JW with a gem. Dude hooks me up with the rarest shit ever. Unreal. Amber pour. Lot of sweet booze in this one and some light fruit aroma. Flavor is sweet, a bit hot, boozy, caramel. Cool "beer" for sure.

BCTC 2010. Ok, I was loaded by the time I tried this. But someone was nice enough and generous enough to share this, and I wrote down that I liked it a lot, even though I can barely read the rest of my notes. But I’m gonna try. Yellowlyhyl. Candy sugar gytzther. Rich arrseen. Ol col. Very good.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle 67 of 75 shared by iowaherkeye. 2009 vintage. Thanks! Poured a clear medium orange color with a thin off white head. lager yeast aromas with subdued toffee and grape candy-ish noble hop. Medium to full bodied with a warming alcohol effect. Distinct noble hop flavor with notes of date and caramel liqueur. Interesting, but not my bag.

TheEpeeist (3177) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2010
187 ml bottle, 2009. My rating #1800! Clear golden amber with a trace of froth. Nose is honey, dough and toffee with hints of malt and yellow raisin. Not quite syrupy, faint carb, but not as sticky as expected. Taste is peanut brittle, honeydew, caramel and grass finishing with burnt sugar. Clean yet rustic with well hidden alcohol. Verging on malt liquor but still a unique beer experience.

pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - AUG 23, 2010
kickass little bottle thanks to Iowaherkeye. Pours yellow with a small white head. Sugar and booze all over the aroma and flavor with some dough, corn, and green apples. Big boozy sweet finish. double imperial iced budweiser would have been a better name for this one. Crap.

Huge thanks to Ogglethorp for sharing one of my white whales at the last C-bus tasting! Golden pour--really striking look to this beer. No head. Aroma is muted with some sweetness and light apple coming through, along with some heat. The taste is incredibly hot, with some light caramel coming through, but mostly alcohol. The flavor is decent, but nothing complex at all. Definitely a let down from the hype.

DLD10. Right place at the right time with this one. Thanks to whomever kindly shared this pour. Clear yellow with a thin head. Aroma of perfume alcohol and sweet sugars. Boozy flavors pale malts and so much alcohol. Too boozy. Ok 7/3/6/3/13

Bottle graciously shared by Ogglethorp. Seriously. This was one of those beers when I first joined me and the other Bastardos were after but never ending up getting. Years pass, trends change and this little bastard comes along again and finally a bottle pops up to share. Does it live up to all the hype and expectations? Not really, it’s hot, the flavors are cloying.... nothing really holds it together and it’s all together too sweet for me. I’ve had worse at this ABV, but this really boils down to rarity and hype, not a great beer.
