JaKeAFC (971) - - JUN 9, 2013
33 cl bottle, 9%. Nice copper-red color with a creamy offwhite head. Sourish on the nose. Aroma is malty, biscuits, some caramel, liquor, brandy. Metallic spirit bitterness in the back of the throat. Taste is sweetish with violent bitter finish. Body is medium. Warming, burning. Finish is short and alcoholic. Boozy stuff.

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2016
330ml bottle (random shop, Berlin). Straight from the bottle in the middle of the night. It’s pouring rain and I have no umbrella. Metallic, sweet and malty in aroma. Sweet, metallic, bit yeasty, malty in taste. Alcohol is there it keeps me warm. I feel like a bloody sailor at the moment. Yo-ho ho and a bottle of the ru.... Tennents!

330ml bottle (?, ?)
Caramelly red, I know what to expet here. Sweet caramelly aroma, some superstrong lager feel to this. Taste is sweet superstrong lager, kinda ESL taste to it, sweet, and not that bad. Some dirty hop extract bitterness. Lots of sweetness, some vanilla sugar, some spiciness, maybe even some cinnamon. Finish split between caramelly sweetness, and chemical dryness. Yeah - this is an ESL, and at that it’s a good’un! Not enough life here for me to believe it’s an ale, this is an industrial strong lager.

Inoven (353) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2016
Flesje thuis gedeeld. Amber kleurig helder bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is er nauwelijks. Fruitig en moutig bier. Smaak ebt snel weg.

Clear amber color with foam layer. Little sweetish nose. Sweet, sticky taste with dried fruit flavors (dates and/or prunes). Calm sweet and fruity aftertaste.

A cerveja não oferece grande diferencial. Tem boa drinkability e é bastante leve.

17Beer (228) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Pours a pale caramel color with a tight bubbled tan head..Aromas of soap and mild malt slightly sweet. Tastes of alcohol, sweet caramel that becomes cloying. Neither complex nor compelling.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - FEB 14, 2016
Limpido color ambra con saponosa schiuma beige. Malto, caramello, zucchero a velo, alcool e un tocco amarognolo si percepiscono al naso e al palato. Alcolica e sbilanciata, non fa però così schifo.

nazbion (295) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 18, 2016
Pours clear dark amber with beige frothy head. Aroma of caramel, light oak, alcohol. Taste is sweet and alcoholic, light bitterness. A bit dry and besides the noticeable alcohol, it’s quite easy drinking for the high abv. A decent ale.

inbirraveritas (1510) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 17, 2015
Bottled, 33 cl. Clear copper amber body with a medium sized off-white head on it, which leaves some lace. Malty nose. Easy aroma containing caramel and burnt sugar underpainted by hints of dried fruits, texture is slick. Peppery, warming, toasty finish escorted by smoky accents. Average.

Aroma agradável, não muito evidente. Sabor frutado e com certo amargor em seu final...
