11.2 oh-zee bottle dumped into a tumbler. “Best by 12.31.24”, but I think this Demon could live in the bottle for 3 centuries.
Smells nostagic. Colt 45 on ‘roids. OE 800 and Steel Reserve. Maybe a bit of piss, upon further review.
Tastes like a cocked and loaded Colt 45, buff with fermented corn, rice, and hop extracts. Big alky bite. The Dirty Shame.
Feel is: Icky goo strut, mid on the carb.
Overall, it’s a mussed up Nephilim that shouldn’t be beautiful, but it can be.

Typical high strength Belgian beer. Won't be to everyone's taste, but remember how its supposed to be drunk - sipped in the same way as a spirit. Two of these with a meal will last you the evening.

De Club del Gourmet de El Corte Ingles de El Duque. Lata. En copa Alhambra. Viendo La Casa de Papel 3x03-05. Suave dulzor alcoholico. Sin estar mal, el exceso de alcohol y tamaño dificilultan terminarla. Si al menos tuviese mas riqueza de sabores...

330ml bottle as a gift from France:
Shocking stuff & awful tasting throughout, the nose definitely wasn't as bad & came through very slightly better than expected but still wasn't exactly great but the taste was beyond bad. Coming through as a mix of strong alcohol grain & the odd pale malt, the beer was chemical-like in taste with an overpoweringly sickening taste & it meant it was one I struggled to drink even a fraction of before pouring it down the drain; only it's appearance (& to some extent, the nose) saved it from being one of the worst beers I've ever had.

Woooah there boy! This tipple is likely to 'tip'ple you over the edge!

Mega strength beer, and excessively so. I actually think it's not too bad, better than some Belgian tripels. A tall slim glass keeps the head, and served chilled takes a bit of the harshness away from it. It has a citrus aspect for me, and given the strength is remarkably smooth to drink. Don't be put off, definitely worth a purchase if available.
A couple of these and you'd be safe sleeping under a bush in the park on a cold night.....thus saving yourself a taxi fare to boot, which can be added to the coffers for sampling a few more brews. Every cloud and all that!

I came back to re-review this one after a second sampling, and down graded it a touch. It is still way way better than the reviews on here, and I think labelling it as a euro strong lager somehow assumes it will be naff right from the get go! But there is the anti-snob in me.

Pours a clear, maize color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong alcohol, slight dark citrus, and grain. Fits the style of an Euro Strong Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong alcohol, slight dark citrus, and grain. Overall, weak appearance, alcohol completely dominates, poor body, aroma, and blend.

Colour: light gold, clear. White head, durability fatal, immediately disappears. Aroma little crisp, malty with a hint of honey and plenty of alcohol. Taste: no surprises, first alcohol, the second 12% alcohol, continue as in the aroma, alcohol plus gentle malt and honey. Gentian alcohol, low. High saturation.

I read a couple reviews here and the 'Bière du démon' is rated as poor. Maybe that's a tad harsh, just in my opinion. For a French strong lager and as far as I know there aren't many of those, it's slightly above average. Yes 12%ABV is a lot and especially for a lager. It's a beer I gave a try or two already, and won't buy the six-pack, assuming it's exist. A cheap buzz if you are around these parts. For the same brewery though, I suggest Goudale instead.

Aroma is very malty and hints at high ABV. Color is clear golden with thin but sticky head. Taste is sourish and , hints of honey and plenty of alcohol burn. Mouthfeel is right and despite alcohol burn, overall texture and palate is very smooth. But beware the high ABV, for a small bottle, this is potent stuff....
