AtronSeige (1595) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 21, 2016
Aroma: Medium-high hops, alcohol. Medium moonshine, medium-light licorice.
Appearance: Good legs, Brilliant, dark copper body. No head.
Flavour: High "zoute drops", salty licorice, resin. Very high bitterness, Medium-high spiciness. Medium-dry finish with lingering burn, licorice
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, no carbonation, high warming burn on the tongue, later heating the belly.
Overall: The burn is strong, obviously from the alcohol, but it makes the beer difficult to enjoy. I understand that the type of beer this is acceptable. The beer can almost be a strong sambuca with hops. Although it is an experience, it is not something I will recommend.
50 ml share of a 375 ml bottle. Thanks Bradley and Rob for joining the share.

22A. Double IPA stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2011
Det här var en spännade upplevelse, flera hade tidigare sagt att den bara smakade sprit, som tur var höll jag inte alls med. Jag tyckte verkligen att det här var en god ’öl’ med mycket smak av humle och lakrits. Men som sagt det här var en trevlig upplevelse som jag gärna om och den gången kanske man kan ta mer än endast 1cl. olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2013
small measure at brewdog Newcastle. Clear amber with legs similar to Courvoisier or similar. Aroma of alcohol and minimal hops if any. Taste is similar with a very warm liqueur taste and alcohol rather than that of beer. A novelty. ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2011
2 oz. sample. Gorgeous honey pour with no carbonation. Beautiful legs on the glass. Aroma is spicy hoppy, and alcohol hot. Hops just ooze out of the aroma of this. Resin and citrus and spiciness. Flavor is knock you on your ass hoppy at the front, but surprisingly smooth for all of that. Hop bitterness is present for sure, but is not as concentrated or harsh as I was expecting. Spicy is the best word. This is like concentrated hop juice. Not sure if the hops are masking the alcohol or if it really is that smooth, but the alcohol burn was minimal.
Impressive beverage. Very tasty. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010
Sampled at "the strongest beer in the world" tasting session on Ørsted Ølbar.Orange look with no head. Extreme pine hop aroma with lots of skunk/pot and alchohol. Strong bitter flavor with the piney/skunky hops comming through in the moutharoma aswell of course along with the alchoholic burning finish. Still a nice experience.

Bottle at Pre-ZBF 2010. Generously poured taster. Still golden with a handful of bubbles in the glass. Amazing nose of hop oil, fruits, caramel, toffee, pine and alcohol. The flavour is extremely concentrated - syrupy caramel, toffee and hops and hops and hops....The finish is huge with a lingering hoppy yet whisky finish and a noticeable warmth from the alcohol. Hype and gimmick aside this is extreme yet something very drinkable. Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Wavers1 with the awesome share! Pours a clear copper with bubbles and no head. Aroma is alcohol caramel hops alcohol and alcohol. Flavor is alcohol hops varnish rubbing alcohol. Eats your tooth enamel in a good way. Me like. Mesjasz (1545) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of honey, caramel and full of alcohol. Taste is bitter, light sweet. Very boozy flavor, harsh and hot. Also some herbsherbs, caramel and hops. Hard to drinking. StilleStorm (1536) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2016
DWF; Bottle 375ml, from Vinmonopolet. Pours nothing, dark brown with no head. Nose is heavy, malt, dark dried fruit and alchol. Taste is tons of alchol and sweet with a bitter, hekken alkohol finish. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is totaly flat. Interresting and enjoyable experiment! Dont run to Kvadrat. TorbenJensen (1532) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015
The aroma is clearly alcoholic but also a little flavor of peach and orange. The taste is heavy, very strong and spicy with a fruity hops. The very long finish and heats the mouth with a brash alcohol. It is completely impossible to compare with beer, it has little in common with beer other than the ingredients. Still it is exciting, tasty and delicate. Perhaps it can be served in limited quantities on a fishing trip or a hunting party. But it was exciting to try it.
