lkowalkowski (314) - POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana słaba, szybko znika. Aromat trochę owocowy, alkoholowy. W smaku dominuje alkohol, goryczka prbuje się przybić ale nie do końca się jej udaje.

ectuohy27 (1103) - ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2016
Weirdly light, normal-lager-seeming brew with relatively nothing much going on, except the 120% stronger kick. Certainly drinkable by my standards (16.9 oz can, nachtwinkel Elsene)

susonagger (202) - spain, - AUG 19, 2016
Su sensacin es aterciopelada sobre un manto de ligero amargor. Es una cerveza densa en boca que relega a la garganta un carcter suplementario ms severo con matices a de madera, con cierto tono toque picante a nivel de lengua. Destaca su sabor alcoholizado que llega desde el paladar hasta el final de la boca, donde deja un largo y excelente recuerdo. Es imperativo consumirla muy fra, a fin de preservar el peculiar sabor que tanto nos seduce.

erickok (5829) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2016
Horrible filtered looks, grey head. Sugar, full of alcohol, ethanol even. Ricola candy, alcohol heat. Horrible aroma but taste is somewhat acceptable. Just alcohol and those Alps herbs, but I expected a dreadful alcohol water taste. So still poor but I could finish the bottle. (33cl bottle from Comptoir Ferme de Mont-Saint-Jean)

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - 500ml can picked up in a petrol station in Brussels, shared in Steves car. As Gordon Finest Platinum XXXtra Strong, 12%, BB Nov 2016. Everything about this beer exudes class. Dark amber orange, clear, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is apple skin, grains, background vinegar. Cheese on crackers with an apple chutney. Smells of the middle classes. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is paper, cardboard, white pepper, dry. Not too boozy given the 12%. In Belgium, its possible to pick up far better beers that are much cheaper than this. So whats the point?

Theydon_Bois (18694) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Can, picked up from a petrol station on the N6 outside of Brussels, boosted in the passengar seat of Rilesters car from a paper cup, 21/11/15. Clear golden with a decent egg shell white covering. Nose is grain, malt, booze, hint of caramel, light pish, bready malt, fruit rinds. Taste comprises grain, semi sweet malt, harsh booze tones, raw alcohol. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close steeped in booze. A touch harsh but ultimately good boost juice.

TBone (17049) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Bottled 330ml (from BBF, BB 11/2016)
Clear amber-golden color, small white head. Aroma is skunky and grassy with notes of cardboard. Medium-bodied. Green apple, harsh alcohol, like C-grade vodka flavor, some paper. Lacks totally finest Belgian yeast flavors. Booze bomb.

jamaty (2095) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada anaranjada y sin apenas espuma. El aroma es alcohol. Poco ms. Y en boca es un aguardiente con sabor a malta, no mucho mas. Mala.

Rubin77 (1750) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 18, 2015
Foam: with almost no head. Colour: clear golden colour. Aroma: fruity and malty, alcohol. Taste: malty, fruity, some metallic tones, a lot of alcohol, bitterness is also present, hard to say more, dont try it, I just want to know what kind of beer are there still drinking strange individuals here in Bruxelles, it really warms up, reminds me similar Amsterdam Maximator which is malt liquor too, but in this case Gordon is much better.
