caplinlee (37) - - AUG 18, 2013
Bought in a shop in Sri Lanka. I brought this beer home from my holiday to Sri Lanka but unfortunately about 25% of the beer managed to seep through the top into my suitcase. As it was a 625 ml bottle I still had a fair bit to taste. Anyway, I wasnt a great lover of it however despite it being the strongest beer Ive ever tried I didnt think the alcohol was overpowering and this was more than drinkable. So although not a thumbs up from me Its still the best strong beer Ive tried.

Scopey (14229) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Can at Cotteridge Convention 2017. It pours clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, white bread, cornbread and white sugar. The taste is smooth, white bread, cornbread, sugary, straw and a decent hit of alcohol. Finish is sweetish and chewy. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Drinks pretty smooth considering.

Can at CWC III; clear light yellow pour with a bubbly white head, aroma has big sweet malts, taste has sweet corn syrup, quite big alcohol presence that the sweetness almost handles.

Bottle at home. Unpleasant aroma of artificial substances, alcohol and corn. Malty, sweetish taste with metallic notes. Awful.

Turtles (2511) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2017
325ml bottle from a friend, bought in Sri Lanka. Clear golden, small white head, some lacing. Fruity aroma, cherries, woody, malty and leafy. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, fairy smooth and some alcohol burn in the mouthfeel. Weird mid-tart, fruity and sweet taste, cherries, woody, malty, bitter orange and some booze. Dry and mild warming finish. Very special taste and not all wrong after a few sips.

MrTipple (4492) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Sweet grain and caramel malts, molasses, alcohol. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Medium sweet. Very sweet malts, caramel, molasses, bread and intense grains, lively carbonation, medium bodied, bittersweet finish. Just about OK for a Malt Liquor, lots of sweet grain, not really refined in any way. Sri Lankan brewed bottle from Foreign Liquors, Nuwara Elyia.
