brokensail (16232) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
The pour is a dark orange/amber color with a small head. Only a mild bourbon aroma with some maple syrup, brown sugar, and a hint of fruit. Definite heat and booziness, which is a bit harsh. The flavor has some malty sweetness of caramel and toffee, but the beer is just overwhelmed by the intense alcohol flavor and heat on the tongue. At least the naming is correct and worst is not as good as worse.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2012
Tried @ Grain Cru - Roll Out the Barrels, Belgian Beer Caf.
Lightly spoken and almost still; an elixir in appearance all tawny copper and oily but with a reasonable and radiant clarity. Tickley, prickly, heady and spiced nose; there is no hiding the booze on this one. Medicinal, spruce, orangeblossom and salted caramel come log-a-heads with Serbias finest Grappa and Hungarys finest plum wine. Palate is just a mirror. Oily. Sherryish sweet, dried stonefruit shows, heavily spiced; gripping, sharp. Underlying phenolics of smoke, heather, rubber, and an edge of apricot and peach that might as well be subs in a play. A shadow of the Big Worst! (37,5cL, unknown date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

TBone (16449) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Bottled 375ml (Beer Hunters, vintage 2010, BB 22/03/20)
Murky orange-brown color, small beige head. French goat cheese and oak in the nose. Full bodied, soft palate. Sweet sherry flavor. Fudge, vanilla and caramel. Winey dessert beer. Feels much less than almost 20 %.

olio (9669) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2012
37,5 cl bottle @ Panimoravintola Beer Hunters. BBE 22.03.2020.
Pours hazy amber color with minimal head. Aroma of sweet ripe fruits, caramel, sugary notes and some cloud berries. Flavor of sweet caramel, sugar, ripe fruits, toffee and mild vanilla notes. The palate is very sweet at the beginning but something steals the sweetness very quickly, probably the alcohol. There is no mentionable alcohol burn though.

laiti (8173) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2012
37,5 cl bottle (19,1%) @ Panimoravintola Beer Hunters, BBE 22.03.2020
Aroma is stale, fruity and slightly floury with vanilla and hints of sauerkraut. Flavour is sweet and a bit messy with fruits, vanilla and bourbon. Alcohol is surprisingly well hidden, one can feel it but it does not disturb or sting. A bit weird feeling here; this starts as sweet, but something stops the sweetness right away. Maybe it is the alcohol.

maneliquor (3496) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a dull orange with a small white head which quickly disappears. Nose is heavy on bourbon and toffee. There is a distinct herbal tone behind it all. The bourbon almost has a whisky tone about it. Sharp bourbon and spice front up, followed closely by thick caramel. Toffee and biscuit on the finish. Pretty boozy but youd expect that at 19%. Solid but no wow factor

sunevdj (4012) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 9, 2012
Bottle at home. (As sore back medicine) Pours a clear amber with a small, light beige head. Quite sweet with aromas of caramel, dried fruits, bourbon, alcohol, honey and toffee. Lots of residual sugars. Full bodied. Soft to medium carbonation. Hints of sulphur towards the end? Long dry and sugary, alcohol warming finish with more bourbon... Sure beats codeine.

Enjoyit (3790) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2012
Clear golden of color with a white head. An aroma of malt, sweets, oak, alcohol and weak spice. A flavor of malt, whisky, sweets, alcohol and weak vanilla.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Pours a cloudy, deep amber with a head that vanished in moments. An ugly, aggressive beer, with a surprisingly smooth, spiced apple and fudge-laden aroma. Theres plenty of booze in the nose too, unsurprisingly. Flavour is complex, to say the least; thick oily barley wine, run through with bourbon, that develops into a toxic burn punctuated with massive peach and vanilla notes. Punishing, but an experience well worth sharing with a friend.
