Thank you tderoeck. Bottle sampled post ACBF 2017. Dark brown with no head. Nose is massively alcoholic, herbal, faint herbal, lager yeast, cheap wine, pure white alcohol leaves. Taste is thin hugely alcoholic, vinous cough syrup, leaves, harsh booze, bark, leaves,..; Body is thick, raw alcohol. I tried two beers around 20 % ABV from ’t Uiltje earlier that day at ACBF 2017. They were really excellent, this is a ridiculously harsh alcoholic mess. Their 57 % ABV beer must be truly punishing.

Many thanks for this strong eisbock to kevnic2008. Bottled in 2014. 330ml waxed swing-top bottle. Alez totalnie szalone piwo. Wyglad, fajny ten wosk na palaku, a piwo jest bardzo ciemno brazowe z refleksami czerwieni, osadku troche tez bylo, piana tylko powstaje podczas samego nalewania do poziomu sredniego, ciemno brazowa, opada w momencie przestania nalewania. Zapach domowego wypieczonego makowca, troche marcepanu w czekoladzie, rozpuszczone kukulki w alkoholu, alkohol i silna slodycz silnie towarzyszy temu piwu ale alkohol jest szlahetny rozgrzewa mocno, przyjemnie poprawia ukrwienie, slodycz tez jest taka przyjemna jak dobre tiramisu. Super deserowe i popoludniowe piwo. Pozostawia dlugi posmak slodkosci i smaku Porto w ustach, oleista i gesta struktura pozwala cieszyc sie smakiem dosc dlugo, mozna mlaskac i sie oblizywac. Super degustacyjne piwo.

Almost without any head. Half clear brown color. Complex aroma. Strong taste with caramell and exotic fruits. Very fruity.

ciocanelu (2053) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 27, 2017
Looks like cola, dark brown, no head. Aroma has dried fruits and some brown sugar. Taste leans slightly towards the sweet side with dark fruits and sherry notes. Finish is more bitter but overall really well balanced. Boozy, well carbonated, light bodied and dry. Overall it’s quite nice for such a high ABV.

Frank (4150) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2016
This is miraculously better than the 13 percent and somehow worse than the 30 percent. It’s pours brown w/ no head. It tastes kind of worty w/ a load of bananas. It’s slightly plastery and mineraly, very sweet and a little tart. It’s hot as hell w/ a good bunch of raisin and toffee flavor. Not exactly great but kind of interesting.

crossovert (12255) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2016
200ml waxed bottle. This one smeels and tastes liek juicy juice and wort but this is a bit better than the 13 thanks to the smack of booze covering alot of it up.

tmoreau (4164) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Shared 200 ml. bottle poured to mini snifters showing a darkest brown color, with some ruby highlighting, initial brown bubbles that quickly diminished to no head, no lacing, but leggy spots on the glass. The nose was nearly roasted, cocoa, dark fruit, caramel & toffee sweetness, and more than ready alcohol. Full bodied, with a syrupy texture, the esters as plum, concord grape skins, and aged, dark cherry lingered heavily in the taste, with sweetness, and a good deal of warmth. Very cordial-like. The modest portion was just enough.

Cunningham (7560) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2015
Dark brown, almost black color with almost no head at all. Rich intensity in the aroma. Fruity, raisins, chocolate and dark malt. Full bodied and a quite soft carbonation. Not far away from flat. Quite sweet but not cloying or sticky. Oily texture. Rich complex flavor. Dried fruits, prunes, raisins, chocolate and dark malt. Powerful and nice evening sipper. Quite well hidden alcohol.
[Bottle from a trade with Grima]
