I will give it to this brewery on marketing. They sure do know how to market a beer as bad as this one. They threw a scantily clad warrior woman on the bottle, reminiscent of heavy metal magazine, to distract from what is inside the bottle. Clever, scheming bastards...
I will just cut to the chase on this beverage so that I can spare you the sickening details. This beer tastes like the cheapest, over-carbonated "lager" with a shot of cheap vodka (rubbing alcohol?) mixed in.
Yet they had the audacity to label it a dopplebock. HA!

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.

Dragon Lady, bought more for the Heavy Metal like label that what beer it contains.
Clear golden colored beer with no real head formation.
Smells of toasted grain and some flowers. Scent of heather and that is about it. Nothing offends my sense of smell, but this isn't aromatic.
Taste...Braced for a Eastern European train wreck of a beer this is...a little sweet with a mild bitter finish. Not a bad flavor but, never going to be in the top 250 here.
Mouthfeel is decent.
Overall, OK Highly alcoholic beer. Wouldn't buy in mass quantities.

This is a very clear light gold beer with a decent white head that quickly reduces to some lacing.
Not a lot for a smell, mainly malt and hay. Reminds me a bit of the smell of the hay in a barnyard.
There is flavor here, but that's about all. The main thing that comes to mind here is medicinal. Hard to describe, mainly just a funky artificial taste, not sure any natural ingredients went into this. Has a bit of an off flavor aftertaste as well.
Feel is ok.
Overall this qualifies more as an alcohol delivery device than an actual good beer. It seems that more effort went into the label than what the bottle contains. If you like the bottle, that is about the only reason to grab this one.

16.9 oz bottle with one cool label. The label has a medieval scantly clad blond haired woman with a giant sword standing in front of a big ferrous dragon. A head shot of the lady with a bright gold border can be found on the neck of the bottle. The back label only has the mandatory US info, the importer's name, and a weird bottle code. My bottle was marked L.96935. There was also a bright red tag around the neck with the 9.7% ABV in big bold white numbers. Very cool label!
Since this beer was labeled a Doppelbock, I had no choice then to pour this beer into my Salvator Pilsner glass. Out of the bottle came a pale but not overly bad yellowish amber colored beer. The head of foam was pathetic. A faint maybe 1/4 of an inch white head of foam rose up and then in a blink of an eye, the head of foam was completely gone. It didn't even bother to leave a string of rings or a blot of lace. Since it left nothing behind, I doubted myself that I even saw a head of foam on this beer.
The smell was simply grainy with a faint whiff of caramel and alcohol in the background. Don't expect much in the nose. You can dig and dig and you'll only find are those aromas.
I hate to say this, but the taste had pretty much the same story as the aroma except that the taste had a lot more booze in it. The taste was primarily alcohol soaked grains. If you're tongue can pick it up, you'll find a subtle caramel sweetness after the grainy alcohol. Very boozy taste.
When you see this beer on the shelves, you'll think to yourself that the label is cool, but the beer will be bad. Well that last sentence describes this beer perfectly! You'll then see the low price for the beer. You might pick it up despite knowing that this beer is going to ruin your day. If you want a cheap beer with loads of alcohol in it, then by golly pick this beer up right away! If you don't like, you've only wasted $2-$3. That's the price of a pack of gum.
