The best thing about this beer is that it’s 9% ABV. You need to be drunk to enjoy this stuff. The flavor, in my opinion, is something you might get if you stick some metal in your mouth while you’re chewing some black licorice. Drink it very cold otherwise you will not be able to finish it. To me, it’s a sacrilege to dump beer. I’ve dumped this stuff before. Drink it if it’s free. Don’t bother paying for it.

Can at home. Golden apple colour. Sugary, grassy smell. Strong alcohol taste, way too strong. Sugary taste. Not really drinkable. Pass.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2007
It has a spewy fruity harshness with some grainy content to try to balance the formaldehide-like flavor out. Alcohol is not well hidden so its good for a buzz.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2008
Can (500ml). I had to laugh at the label on this one, “please drink responsibly” its 9% and 3.6 (aus) standard drinks with a wide mouth for sculling purposes. Poured a golden orange with an off-white, dense frothy head which lasted well. Aroma was of honey, cornish malts, faint lemon with metallic notes and sulfur notes. Flavor was awful and very metallic, with alcohol, sweet cornish malts and sugar. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, a watery texture, metallic mouthfeel and a short finish. Not as bad as the Skol super that’s for sure.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 13, 2008
Canned 50cl. It pours a deep golden beer with a white head. The nose is metallic, malty with hints of whisky, onions, caramel and alcohol. The taste is metallic, syrupy, alcoholic with hints of onions. Very aggressive. Good lacing. Some fennel showing up. Unpleasant finish.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2009
A most uninteresting beer. Sweet tasteless with loads of alcohol. No doubt that will appeal to some but not me.
