3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light copper color. Medium pillowy head vanishes in minutes. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Malty, yet well balanced. Alcohol 8%, you would never guess. Clean crisp finish.
Bottle… Clear amber lager with a small, fizzy, vanishing white head. An easy pour left lots of muck in the bottle. The nose consists of sorghum, palmetto honey, toffee and medicinal alcohol. Full of unlikely, unfortunate and unidentified esters and phenols. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. Boozy and sweet with light molasses. Not much in the way of hop bitterness, but there’s a touch from the ethanol. Warming, bittersweet finish. RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Had this beer on 9/9/2002. Aroma is a mild malt scent and is a lighter scent than the regular Boom. Color is a nice gold with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is mild and sweet. Starting with a light medium body it goes down with a crisp refreshing feel. Finish is a light malt flavor with a strange sweetness that you can taste the alcohol in. The lable states that this is a Malt Liquor. It fits the category of a Malt Liquor and as such its the best one I’ve had. I am not a big fan of Malt Liquors, because most of they suck, but this is a very drinkable beer. I would like to note that it does feel lighter and more refreshing than the regular Boom but is a bit sweeter. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2006
This is a huge beer, almost to the point of being like some high gravity macro lagers. Has a kind of simple flavor, doughy with a bit of grassy hops. Some strange fruitiness and finishes with a bit of spice. Odd... hair-old (191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2006
At 8% alc/vol this brew packs a wallop
just like the semtex plastic explosive
made in the same town.Goes down
smooth.Taste changes as this beer
warms,pull out a cold one and sip on it over 2 hours. I swore i was drinking
6 different beers.Great price.Highly
recommended.My bottlle said porter 8%
on the cap. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Dark golden to amber color with an off white plastic looking head. Aromas of caramel and mild dough laced with alcohol. Some light grassy hops. Somewhat thick in feel. Odd yeast flavors that make this seem like a keller brew. Pale malt, light fruit and a spicy alcohol component. Yet another in a rather long line of european strong lagers.

poured a clouded amber with a smallish head. aroma of honey and spice. Very malty and sweet...wet finish. Alcohol hidden well...this is almost a doppleganger for Bavaria 8.6 in flavor profile. Not a bad beer if you like the strong Euro lagers...but I don’t thus the modest score. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Bottle. I’m not sure....this just didn’t taste right to me. Not like it went bad or tasted like Anheuser World Select or anything, it just didn’t taste right. Or maybe it tasted like something I’m not getting. Possible re-rate tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Extra Boom. Sounds like a poor translation or something. Big American Party. Anyway, onto the beer. I froze this accidentally and when I drank it, it still had frozen spots. Tastes surprisingly good, at first. Might be better at this temperature tho, since others are saying it gets bad as it warms. Reminded me of Aventinus, something I wasn't expecting at all. It was good in my opinion. Cheap too. Those Czech know how to pack a punch. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Appearance: clear, peachy color, a big, rocky, crackling head of foam that pares down quickly, into nothingness.
Aroma: odd...fruity...medicinal, mineral...metallic...dry, with ocassional hints of orange and it too disappears, with haste, into the great unknown.
On the matter of taste: flavor, there is, yes, but hard to categorize. Spicy, fruity, but in minute dosages. Texture is tiny. Definitely feels like a lager, body is slight, but not too,and malt is felt, in it’s way. Alcohol, a hefty 8%, takes time to present it’s force ...ooop, there it is! Starting to creep into me, now.
Just enough taste here to make it worthwhile drinking, but not enough to make it worth returning to. Needs a lot more of a lot of things, to make for a worthy brew.

Nice dark amber color,small off white head that faded quickly and left little behind.The aroma was mildly malty and mildly fruity with a definate alcohol hint coming through.The taste was nothing special Lightly malty with a good alcohol bite in there a decent fruity accent and some hops.The alcohol isn’t real bad but does get to be a bit much as the brew warms up.Not bad but then not great eather.It’s worth a try atleast once but for me once is enough,thankfully the price was right on this brew.
