O.K., SO MY USER NAME PRETTY MUCH SAYS IT ALL. I LOVE THIS BEER ICE COLD IN AN ANTIQUE STEIN. VERY SIMILAR TO SOME BELGIAN STRONG ALES, WITHOUT THE HEFTY PRICE. I CAN GET A CASE OF 20 FOR ABOUT 30 BUCKS. MALTY AND SWEET, BUT NOT OVERLY SWEET. SUBTLE HOP BITTERNESS, WHICH SUITS ME FINE - I AM NO HOP HEAD. A BIG BEER FOR THE BUCK AND, OBVIOUSLY, ONE OF MY FAVES. WORTH SEEKING OUT.

Great beer. Its light, adequately aromatic, flavorful, and extremely strong. It tastes very similar to Russian beers, specifically Baltica. For having such a high alcohol content (8.7%) it feels surprisingly light. I prefer it much better than Belgian beers which are typically heavy and sweet like maple syrup. If you can find a bottle, pick it up. You won't be disappointed.

Mmmmm, that sweet and bitter taste. Flowers and alcohol. Hard candy, you know, the butterscotch and root beer flavors. Dissolve an aspirin in a jelly jar of sweet vermouth.

This smells like jelly beans with the faintest whiff of brake fluid. A lot of caramel and marzipan. Then you get the medicinal bitterness. This is just revolting. I'm surprised so many people seemed to get it down.

The best feature is that after the carbonation evaporates in about two minutes, it looks just like Scotch whisky. From the 500 ml bottle bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Phoenix.

A: The beer is clear light amber orange in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of apples are present in the nose along with notes of sweet malts and hints of alcohol.
T: The overall taste is a little sweet and rather malty with notes of apples and hints of alcohol. As the beer warms up, the alcohol becomes a little more noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little syrupy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer reminds me a lot like a sweetned version of an American Malt Liquor except the taste is not that offensive. The apple flavors definitely help to mask some of the alcohol. This beer is surprisingly not that difficult to drink considering its style and strength.
