Nothing nuanced about this beer, including the bottle art that no doubt will appeal to those young at heart. The color is not bad, sort of an orangish golden color, no real head or lacing. The smell is the weakest thing here, not sure what it is. The taste is simply boozy, and not a particularly pleasant booziness. Maybe a hint of anise. Anyway, not a repeater

Poured from a bottle. Orangish in color with almost no head. Smells of dark fruit, yeast and alcohol. Sting of alcohol, old fruit and leather in the flavor. Nothing much to be happy about here. Take a pass here

16.9 oz. bottle:

States on label - Beligian style and Quad Bock - Whatever that is supposed to mean:

Pours hazed to murky orange with a thin wispy head. Minimal lacing.

The smell is of overripe fruitiness (tough to pick out any individual fruits - just a fruity character in general). Boozed-soaked caramel comes through loud and clear.Maybe a subtle hint of cotton candy? (Maybe that's the "Belgian" part?)

The taste is something like sweet fruit punch with caramel. Raw alcohol is present in a malt liquor way. Harsh.

This is a rough one. Doesn't really fit a style - maybe a doppelbock - but close to a malt liquor/Euro strong lager hybrid. It's cheap and high in abv.

500ml bottle. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of booziness, caramel and toffee. So sweet and boozy. So hot.

Pours with virtually no head, has an orangish amber color. Not the best smelling beer, has a malty smell with an odor that is best decribed as over ripened fruit, most people would not find this appealing.

But when it comes to taste this seems to be ok for what it is, stronger beers like these are hard to find that are smooth or good tasting. Now this beer unfortunately is not an exception the taste is something along the line of over ripened apple, and there is definitely some alcohol burn with this one, not for everyone. Also very little carbonation. But definitely a bit better than most beers of this category. this is the type of beer you drink when you want to find your date more attractive. Defintately a kicker but worth a try if you like stronger beers, was found at not a bad price $2.00 for a pint at tone &country liquor on 47th and Richmond Chicago

A gift from John and Lorene, no date on the bottle but it has a nice label...
L: Pours a clear reddish orange without any discernible head.
S: Alcohol......and for lack of a better phrase, "a rotting taffy apple".
T: The 14% ABV hits you right upside the head and finishes with an unpleasant rotting fruit taste.
O: Without a doubt, one of the worst beers I've ever head. It's so bad that if I had a trip to Lithuania a planned, I'd cancel it.

Rinkuškiai "Hell On High Quad Bock"
16.9 fl. oz brown glass bottle, coded "L.10443"
$2.99 @ Roger Wilco, Pennsauken, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Against my own better judgement having already had one of the strong beers from Rinkuškiai I'm going to go ahead and try "Hell On High". At least the label is good with a devilish looking character petting a white poodle. So, even with a rough pour I was unable to bring up a head. There's a little bubbly foam here and there but not much. That really hurts it in terms of appearance. The body is a very hazy deep amber with an orange sheen and golden highlights. The aroma is malty and caramelish with a light bit of apple-like fruitiness. The flavor follows and I'm quite surprised, it's much better than I thought it would be. The rich caramel maltiness is pleasant and not overdone, and there are no off-flavors. The alcohol does show slightly but I think it's actually helping to dry it in the finish along with its median bitterness, some herbal hops, and refreshing apple-like fruitiness. It could be a more carbonated but it's not bad, it works well with the full bodied maltiness. I'm going to guess it's around 2.0 volumes of CO2 where a standard beer is around 2.5 and a cask ale is more like 1.8. I keep smelling it, swirling it, waiting to find something bad come out as it warms but it hasn't happened yet. However, more and more alcohol is showing but we'll see if all of that malt keeps it in balance ... ... ... hmm, it's stayed pretty much the same except that it has lost some carbonation which leaves it even softer, and that hurts it on mouthfeel despite it's chewy maltiness. The bottle label did say it was bottle conditioned but I highly doubt that, and even if it was, it's hard to coax enough carbonation out at 14% ABV. So, what to say? It's perfect for malt heads, and those who just love strong beers. For anyone else it's more like a golden caramel flavored dessert beer, and even in that it's pretty one-sided. I'm surprised it's as clean as it is, and so not-hot with alcohol, but that's not enough to pull it beyond a decent beer despite it's "quad bock" status.

We gotta call it for what it is. This is kind of an over-ABV joke label from Lithuania.
a) Flat dark whiskey body, no head, nothing on top (fail).
s) absolutely fine, with sweet fruit predominant, alcohol laden, fruit cake, cider, b&b.
t) The taste follows nose but more complex, and nuanced with sweetness, whiskey soaked fruit, fruit cake, tempered by smokey malt and grain backbone, again whiskey like. A bit harsh after a few sips. (perhaps a good cooking liquid?)
f) Sharp, cloying, not crisp, on the thicker side w very low amount of carbonation.
o) Sub-par overall. too sweet, too harsh.

Appearance: cloudy orange color with a few surface bubbles as a head.

Smell: over ripe golden apples and alcohol are most notable and unappealing.

Taste: grainy malt base with honey, over ripe apples, pears, and lots of warming alcohol.

Mouthfeel: heavy in body. Smooth from start to finish. Long lasting sweet and burning aftertaste.

Overall: this beer is way too sweet with a rancid apple flavor with loads of alcohol burn. Not for me.

This unique brew was enjoyed from the bottle in a snifter. Pouring a very nice
clear and bright amber this beast produces a thin ring and subtle pool with very
light lacing. Nose of heavy apple cider, light brown sugars, and strong grain alcohol.
Flavors follow the nose with brown sugars and golden raisins awash in apple cider
and beaten to death by strong warming grain booze. Decent mouth feel, warming and
lightly coating. Let it warm and be lightly rewarded, yet know that the strength of the
grains and booze increase as well beating you over the head with strong booze.

Decent but a touch over the top without enough depth.

If there was a beer equivalent to getting punched in the head this would be it. It tastes extremely grainy smells as dank as it tastes. That being said, I love this ish. For a 14% beer it is still comparatively drinkable.

Give this to your buddy if you want to here him talk about his divorce for two hours.

From the bottle, it pours amber with virtually no head. Somewhat malty aroma - lots of grain? Alcohol and some grainy malt in the mouth. This beer hits you like a freight train!
