1.55/5  rDev -34.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

330ml bottle

Pours with a pale gold colour, thin slightly off white head with pretty poor retention, thick cloying body sticks to the side of the glass, some lacing

Smell, massive whiff of strong booze, some malt liquor aroma in the background, hops are no where to be smelt :(

Taste, overpowering sweetness, ridiculous alcohol, boozy mouthfeel, burning alcohol, some thick sticky malt in there too.

Sh*t basically, a malt liquor gone too far, tastes like someone brewed a standard lager recipe then added 6kilos of spray malt just to up the alcohol content.... stay far away from this one

1.56/5  rDev -33.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 1.25

Pours an incredibly clear greenish-yellow, with a healthy head that fades down into toad's eye bubbles and top-lacing. Fine, but on the weak end. Then again, with this alcohol percentage, any head is something.

Nose is largely neutral, with clean yeast, some metalic notes, and a whiff of millet. Not good, though.

Taste starts out fairly harmless, with some honeyed sweetness, and a premonition of alcohol behind it. This is soon followed by a rush of intensely awful fusel alcohol -- enough to make me wince -- along with more metal, and deep, unsettling heat. Truly terrible.

Mouthfeel is fine enough, but the beer it carries is so bad, I'm loathe to keep it in my mouth for very long.

One of the worst beers I've ever drank, and a rare drain-pour (after the review, of course). Even now, it curdles the stomach. An abomination.

250ml bottle

A- Dark golden colour, reddish hints if seen through light. Head is white, foamy, decently big, but it disappears pretty quickly and also leaves very little lacing

S- Very, very sweet aroma, malty but in some kind of a 'chemical' way if that's the right word. A slight hint of candied apples is possibly the only actual aroma. And then of course a huge boost of alcohol, not at all amalgamated with the smell.

T- Very sweet upfront with a slight touch of grain. From the very start you may think that at least this feels like beer, but the booze soon kicks in, no flavours on tongue (except for a slight metallic feel), alcohol burning on the palate and in the aftertaste. Overall this is an extremely sweet beer, but it does not have sweet flavours, it's just disturbingly sweet

M- Body is a quite thick (you may have expected a bit more given the ABV), but thick with some kind of a burning feel from the alcohol, not at all pleasant. Carbonation is, suprisingly, barely detectable. If it felt a little crisp, it's flaws may have been hidden a bit

O- It's quite obvious what i think abuot drinkabilty, complexity and so on. Half of the bottle was a drainpour. Congratulations Du Demon, you are my new lowest rated beer
