Numbered beer (970/2652), 750 mL. Bought in Miltenberg, 2012 edition (I believe, as it is best before 2022).

Strong, malty and fruity. Barely any head, but still carbonated. Can't quite figure out the type of beer it is, and no hint is given. Tastes like a hybrid between a scotch ale and a fruity (plum, figs) belgian double. Strong smell of alcohol and dark fruits. Very thick and intense. Glad my bro' shared it with me, as a 750 mL is too much for one.
