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....

Advertised as the strongest beer in the world, this might be the booziest euro strong lager but with 12% ABV it's far to be the strongest beer I ever consumed.
Very boozy nonetheless and cloying

I don't get this cheap and popular superalcoholic beers...
They are just terrible.. nothing balances the alcohol in them.
In the end of this one I thought I was drinking a vodka lol.

Overall not bad. I do agree with most of the reviews that there really isn't much in the way of up front smell or flavor, but it's not necessarily a bad beer. It's worth a try at least once.

This beer starts off with a great look and smell however it quickly loses it appeal after the first few sips.

I found it better than the average reviews. A strong beer that doesn't warn you about its strength. I found it funny. Far from my favourite, but overall, an interesting beer.

Une bière sans personnalité, dont l'unique intérêt serait le haut degré d'alcool. Mais l'argument ne convaincra que les alcooliques car pour le reste elle est totalement déséquilibrée. Trop de sucres residuels, un goût désagréable et un arrière-goût carrement infect. A éviter.

Agreed, tastes like a crappy lager with a shot of vodka thrown in to make it stronger. Will not buy again. Purchased at Ipercoop in Italy.
