mutz (489) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Donkergeel met weinig kraag. Ruikt en smaakt zoetig en verder weinig. Geen diepgang. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 20, 2013
Botella de 33 cl en varias ocasiones ya hace años. De hecho mi birra favorita durante la época instituto. Ya desaparecida de los bares y tiendas de España hace tiempo. Donde se puede encontrar de nuevo???. Solo recuerdo su sensación alcohólica sin muchos sabores que destacar. 9 vol. de cerveza sin mas, aunque recuerdo ciertos toques secos y maltosos, unidos a cierta densidad algo dulce. Me encantaría tomarla de nuevo. Creo que el sentimentalismo me puede en esta actual puntuación. Me quedo con etiqueta y botella como recuerdo.

Can at Jacob Lövenlunds place. Golden colour with a Big fast dissapering white head. Light alcoholic malty aroma and a sweet caramel malty alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet alcoholic finish.

FrkAabenhuus (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Bottled. Deep golden coloured, with a huge dissapering head. It has a very strong malty, alcoholic aroma and a very sweet caramel alcoholic taste, with a slightly bitter-sweet-alcoholic finish. Should be served very cold.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, fully golden with a small, white head. Aroma of malt, brewing syrup and alcohol. Rather full-bodied with a heavy sweetness and distinct notes of corn. Slightly sulphurous finish. Drinkable and better than it’s reputation - although that’s not saying much. 200106

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 6, 2011
Süßer und alkoholischer Geruch. Die Alkoholnote ist deutlich herauszuschmecken, allerdings ist sie angenehm süßlich unterlegt. Das wars allerdings auch schon, das klebrige Getränk weißt sonst keinerlei Aromen auf. Zumindest ein herbes Aroma hätte hier ins Bier gehört, um die Süße etwas zu tilgen. So ist es auf jeden Fall zu süß, dazu außerdem langweilig. Test vom 15.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,7,6,3,8,7 - 6,70

Kosmokrator (424) - ITALY - JUN 17, 2012
Color oro intenso con classica fragile schiuma bianca. Aroma debole, lievemente maltoso e moderatamente alcolico. Gusto dolciastro con lievi note di malto e cereali, forte sapore di alcool che copre quasi ogni cosa; finale sgraziato, leggermente amarognolo ma troppo alcolico. Effervescente e corposa, al palato non è malissimo ma lascia la bocca (e lo stomaco) sottosopra.

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.
