Poured from a 12 fl oz (355 ml) bottle into a tulip glass.

Gotta dig the label: A Dragon and a busty warrior blonde - That's HOT.

As for this Lithuanian doppelbock: An apple, peach and hints of gin (juniper berries) for the nose. The head is thick and substantial, but when it fades, it completely disappears, leaving a medium-heavy duty, refined brew with a menu of a butter rum and peach brandy. Strange finish: The Dragon Lady left a nice warm sensation in my belly but few of the notes I mentioned above came along for the ride - In fact, it was somewhat metallic and left the roof of my mouth with a waxy film feel and taste. Remember, at 9.7% alcohol content, Dragon Lady is a high octane beer, so watch yourself. A full-bodied drinking meal. Decent & doable.

My sole reason for picking up this beer is the amazingly awesome label. Other than that, this beer kind of sucks.

It's cheap and will get you drunk given the high alcohol content. But the overall flavor is lacking. It has this weird malty-chemical-sweetness. I've tasted similar flavors with high alcohol content beers, but the bad flavor leaves much to be desired.

Light brown in color and somewhat hazy with almost no head at all. Plenty of dark malt in the aroma with a relatively clean lager smell. The flavor is more of alcohol than of the dark malt. There's a bit a buttery aftertaste. The mouth is a bit sticky and dry.

well I am kind of drunk already so I will give this a go. Picked this up for 2.99 at Vintage Estate. Should have know better when they advertise the ABV on a swing tag in big bold letters this was going to be bad.

A - Well points for that it looks good a very clear ruby red color with a solid inch of opaque colored head that seems to stick around forever. For the rating I expected it to fizz out like a malt liquor.
S - Very mild cereal grains and some caramel malt. Doesn't have any offensive ethanol smells or skunky smells so I hope for the best.
T - Wow I never experienced a malt liquor with bock characters before! That's the best description I can muster other than alcohol soaked grains which I can fully agree it taste like. Ugh I may drain pour this.
M - Its somewhat tolerable medium body despite the huge ABV but the flavor is terrible,

Overall I poured out the last 8 ounces or so it truely is a terrible beer, one of the worst I had in a while. Please don't be tricked by the kick ass cover art and buy this it's terrible.
