LazyPyro (1387) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2017
110ml bottle. Pours a dark copper colour with a thin yellowy head instantly disappearing. Aroma: alcohol, liquorice, oak, cocoa, malty. Taste: roasted malt, liquorice, dark fruit, oak, huge alcohol burn, dark chocolate. Thick viscous body, very little carbonation. An interesting experiment ultimately resulting in a gimmicky beer, simply way too strong to actually enjoy.

LLaurin (500) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2017 Well the nose is liquorice and lots of sweet tones. Appearance is very nice. Taste is Turkish pepper and not agreeable. Palate is also not very good. Well impressive that you can make this kind of beverage but it is not beer at all.

Sarpa (1623) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2017
Bottle, 110ml. Thanks ration. Pours clear deep amber, no head. Malts, cocoa, bread, alcohol in the aroma. Strong roasted malts, peat, alcohol flavour.

290717. Bottle at Sarpas cabin (brewdog shop). Pours deep amber with almost no head. Aroma alcohol, raisins, ripe fruit. Burning alcohol on the tongue. Not very beery. Not Bad.

Pours a copper brown with no real head. Nose does have some eisbock or barleywine aquavit mix qualities. But really, this is super boozy and not in a pleasant way. Taste is a lot worse.. ultra boozy and just a huge mess. I can appreciate the experiment but the taste is just not pleasant at all. I enjoyed the previous batch a bit more. This is pretty much undrinkable...

ThirstyBird (2967) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Thanks to erzengel for sharing!! Pours a cola color without a head. The smell is very hot and boozey with plenty of peat and roast. The taste also burns with the same roasted malt, and dry peatiness coming through. Medium in body and without carbonation. Not my thing at all - it’s like drinking vodka out of an ashtray.

Erzengel (9078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2017
Intense thick roasted peated nose. Great round, no carbonation. The beer starts intense and thick, toffee, peated malt, very concentrated and hard to drink. Viscous. Intense and long roasted dried thick dark peated aftertaste, no depth, just thick, not too much alcohol, a bit sweetish, strange but interesting. But way too less depth.

Koelschtrinker (20772) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Torfiger Geruch. Intensiver rauchiger Beginn, in dem die Süße nur eine Nebensache darstellt. Stark alkoholisch, langer Nachhall. Gut. 10/11/10/11/0/11

Zlotta (3501) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Sampled from 0.33 l bottle. Clear, dark brownish amber, no head. Very intense, peaty, slightly sweetish-malty aroma of mainly peat, some caramel and hints of vanilla. Extremely intense, malty and very peaty taste of massive peat, caramel and some vanilla, followed by a long, very peaty and warming-alcoholic finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, flat. Really intense stuff, not bad actually, quite enjoyable, couldn’t drink more than a few sips though.

Beerhunter111 (21762) - P´Castle, GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Bottle shared with Zlotta and Koelschtrinker. Dunkel orange braunes Bier. Geruch ist alkoholisch, kräftig malzig, reifes Obst, holzig, Kaffee. Geschmack ist brennend alkoholisch, Melasse, toffee, Lakritze, brennend alkoholisch im Abgang.
