This beer is a staple of the tramp diet and I am a regular drinker of this tipple. I first tried this in the hope that it would taste a bit better than Special Brew. How wrong I was. This 9.0% beer has the signature paint stripper smell and taste bud-killing palate to match. However, with most other high strength beers, it can become bearable with frequent drinking. It smells like a mixture of cheese, gasoline with a little bit of actual beer in there, the can it comes in is unmistakable with SUPER written all over it to make sure nobody overlooks the trampy-ness of this beer. It can be seen in the hands of the homeless everywhere and is gaining a strong rep amongst the students out there today, partially thanks to all the street corner shops selling it for £1:20 a pop. Nethertheless, this beer is a definite must try for all, once you can get over the cardboard like taste and the hammering hangover, this head spinning potion is a sure fire way to drunk-dome and will soon be one of your favourite super beers.

ozzatoadisback (31) - ITALY - APR 13, 2016
Dark golden, dense white head, decently persistent. Aroma has light notes of cereal and lemon soaked in heavy alcohol. Taste has a vague sweetness, a lot of alcohol and a quite harsh chemical finish/aftertaste. Body is heavy with light carbonation, mouthfeel is dense and chewy. It’s bad, but still tolerable

Ysok02 (737) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2015
Robe dorée, belle mousse. Nez de vieux fûts et de houblon pas net. Bouche aqueuse et sans ampleur, ni complexité. Une bière à oublier au plus vite.

sonotono (229) - torino, ITALY - SEP 13, 2015
Colore dorato carico, schiuma grossolana poco persistente. Odore leggerissimo dolciastro, cereali. Sapore dolce di malto smorzato da un amaro finale dai toni aspri non proprio gradevole.

Pours a clear, orange-golden color, topped with decent white foamy head. Malty aroma, a bit bready with alcohol notes. Taste is similar, sweet, malty, strong, alcohol. Not nice, really.
