(Can). Aroma and taste of sweet malt, figs, syrup? and alcohol ... a lot of alcohol! Have tasted worse beers but will not drink this again!

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2015 pours clear golden yellow with a big white head and some lacing. practically no aroma, except for alcohol and some very distant malts. no hops whatsoever despite claiming "intense hopping" on the can. sickeningly sweet and 11.6% abv does not help. this is a strong contender to be the worst beer i’ve managed to finish. hint: you really need to take your time on this one, with some food or chocolate, strangely it becomes better when it warms up a bit.
update: did not manage to finish it after all. yes, it is really bad.

Clear dark golden with a white head. Nose is mainly malt with strong aroma of alcohol. Body is medium, carbon light, texture slick. Taste is sweet. Palate id dominate by alcohol, sweet tones, malts. C@H

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle poured in a chalice.
After the Explorator(D+) and the Navigator(D+) drinking this one is, at least, a big mistake.
A: Clean pale yellow with a big bubbled head which dissipates quickly leaving some lacings
S: Malts and alcohol. Ok it’s a Doppelbock, ok it’s strong but this smell does not justify. Sweet
T: Bad surprise. Tastes like liquor. Very sweet upfront. A bit fruity. Reasonable bitterness (the ONLY good point of this beer)
M: Heavy and molasses body. Reasonable carbonation to such strong beer
D: Really bad...

Eau de tramp. Eau de SDF. Eau de merde. Maximator is a goddamned terrible beverage! Not for the feint hearted.

Can from Carrefour, Nice. Clear amber-orange with no head. Strong tasting as you might imagine with a sweetness, but not a great one.

Bottle from Supermarché Match in Calais. Damn hell! Another one of this awful beers almost impossible to drink and in the end, finishing the glass is more like a Quest of Courage than enjoyment. Bah. Sticky-sweet malty aroma, sugary, hoppy, malty, grainy taste, sugary sweet finish with floral hints. Absolutely disgusting.
