Pours a deep golden color with an slightly tan head that disipates quickly. Little visible carbonation.
Smells of caramel, candied fruit and earthy notes of barley and wet hay.
Taste is strong and very sweet with malted barley and notes of caramel and fruity (most notably apple-ish) flavors. Mild hops and a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. Hard to believe it could get any better, but it does as it warms close to room temperature!
Mouthfeel is a medium to heavy body with only a slight presence of carbonation. A slight burn, as expected from the high ABV.
At the initial taste, I thought this was an English Barleywine. The sweetness, strength of flavor and heavy body would certainly suggest so, but it is a strong, high-fermentation lager. I'm amazed that this beer is priced at under $2.50 for a 16.9 oz. bottle. At 12% ABV, I'm sure its recent popularity stems from those who just want a quick, cheap buzz. However, this is definitely a beer worthy of attention for its complexity and unique character. This beer has just hit the very top of my list of favorite brews!

Saw this at DeCicco's in Ardsley, New York and realized it wasn't on this site so I added it. I don't even know if this qualifies as a Euro Strong Lager but it seems to fit the category based on my beer drinking experience. Of course, this site makes it tough to upload photos so I'll have to add it another time.
Poured into a pint glass.
A- Dark golden in color, thin white head.
S-Old mushy grapes, honey, booze mixed with cheap lager .
T- Cloyingly sweet, mixed with a bit of booze and other odd, unidentifiable flavors. Strong banana flavor pops up every now and again .
M- Thick and very filling with a decent amount of carbonation. Booze lingers a bit. Numbs limps just a little.
O- My goodness, this is basically Lobster Lover's Beer on steroids. As noted above, very filling and tough to get down. I'll finish the pint but this isn't something I'll buy often, if ever.
