lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Draught @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012.
Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma of strong Belgian toffee, hay and candisugar. Very sweet flavour of Belgian toffee and shitloads of candisugar. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and an aggressive sugary finish. Reminds me of Root Beer. Way too sweet anyway.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Big thanks to Harrisoni for sharing this rare beer. Cheers Ian! Hazy amber beer. Short lived pale tan head. Smooth silky palate. Sweet malts, caramel (naturally!). Lots of sweet esters, banana in particular. Alcohol aniseed spice towards the finish. Smooth delivery as always from Struise with the super high abv beers.

Thanks to Ian for sharing this! Pours a honey gold to brown colour with a huge upfront alcohol aroma. Aroma and flavours of raisins, caramel, alcohol and oak also with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. A long alcohol hum and quite bitter. Nicely done : )

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Easter tasting 2012, thanks to harrisoni. It pours hazy deep red-amber, with a quickly dissipating off-white head. The nose is spice, honey, golden syrup, sweet tinned fruit (pear, melon etc) and brown sugar. The taste is varnish, wood, very fruity - raisin, currant, prune, date, melon and pear, as well as hot cross buns, toffee, golden syrup and lots of alcohol warmth. Full body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Pretty damn sweet and hot, but quite an experience to drink!

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2012
Shared bottle at a Haandbryggeriet tasting session. Thanks to Arne, Egil and Rune for sharing this gem. Pours a near-clear deep red, under a low off-white head. Nuts and marzipan hit the nose at first. Then a big alcohol sweetness. Not harsh, and without a sting. Tones of plum marmelade and dark caramel. Taste is intensely sweet with a full malt body. A prominent fruity flavor shine through as well, like extracted dark dried fruit. Despite the monsterous 25 % abv, there is quite a lively mouthfeel with a pleasant sparkling sensation on the tongue. Long troath-warming finish. An impressively well crafted, and yes, balanced hyper-beer. I love it!
