2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
April 2009: Bottle was the 2008 version, wierd label, picture of a bald blokes face, half blue half flesh coloured. Brown bottle holding 33cl of beer that was slightly out of date (two weeks actually).
Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru stemmed tulip shaped glass.
Looked like a Dort, meaning a deep old gold colour, bright, clear and with a good white head on top. The head fell away early, as did my liking of the beer, read on.
Smells like a good Belgian Blonde, yeasty and interesting.
Tastes like a lager on acid, what a complete contrast to the look and smell, Christ this one strong and unhealthy brew, no wonder they number the bottles (mine was 2806169, I can’t believe they sold that many?), two sips and I could feel the headache begining to form.
Alcohol for alcohols sake, I can imagine the Danish lowlife falling over on street corners after drinking a couple of these, not a pretty thought. The Danes do a few of these heavy super strength brews and I haven’t found one I really enjoyed yet.
This was the last of the beers I obtained in Copenhagen last year, I picked a very poor selection to bring home and this is about the worst of a sorry bunch. My own fault, waited until just before leaving to buy anything and had to rush round a rough area corner shop to fill my suitcase with whatever I could find.
This is one nasty piece of work

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with ok head. Aroma hops that diminish quickly. Taste sweet candy malt, honey on toasted bread. Alcohol notable. Medium/full body. Text thick. Finish sweet and alcohol. A surprise, much better than the ratings.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
2011 bottle, Nr. 643682 (seems very limited... or does it mean something else).
Golden, smaller off-white head, some lacing.
Aroma: sweet maltiness, fruity, grainy, candy.
Taste: very sweet, candy (hallonbåtar, zoo), low grassy bitterness, alcohol.
Quite acceptable actually.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from TW, thanks.
Sweet malty aroma. Solid golden color with a beige lace. Sweet malty taste but lacks complexity and a too small bitterness to make it balanced.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - 2012 edition. Dark golden pour with off-white head. Aroma is sweet with malt, alcohol and maybe a hint of hops? Taste is likewise sweet and boozy. Ends with alcohol-burn. Light carbonation. Not as bad as expected from previous endeavours, but I still fail to see the point.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Arom: blommor och en aning citrus, och gräs. Inte alls dumt. Men så fort skummet har lagt sig slår alkoholen till och tar helt över dofterna. Tyvärr. Smak: Bassett´s winegums marinerade i alkohol. Faktiskt inte alls dumt. Men varför så hög alkoholprocent?

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Beer No. 95 on my tour through Austria, Germany and Denmark.
Canned 500ml. -from the can in the train from Copenhagen to Nykøbing Falster. Vintage 2011. Sweet alcoholic nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic and vegetables with notes of glue in the finish. No matter how I tried hardly drinkable.
