Except if you want to keep a high alcoohol presence in your blood it doesn’t have any interest. The homeless luxury beer.

massingasetta (177) - München, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
Diese Bier heisst anders als sein Alkoholgehalt, anscheinend hatte es mal 8,6%. Auch mit 7,9% ist dieses Bier eine Wucht. Farbe und auch Geruch sind appetitlich und mit starken Gewürzgeruch. Antrunk ist ziemlich bitter und man merkt den deutlichen Alkoholgehalt. Dies muß man mögen. Insgesamt ein würziges schweres Bier was gute Ansätze hat. Der Körper ist mir persönlich etwas durchmischt - ein Sammelsurium an Würze - was erst durch Abgang einigermassen zusammenkommt.

JToth (23) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
Awful. Poured a clear yellow. Strong smell of alcohol. Almost smells like a cheap bottle of wine. Way too sweet for a beer with a 7.9% ABV.

Icedwarf (271) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en vlak, lichte sporen van caramel. Matig bier, valt tegen.

Better than the 8.6 Red, which was a disaster, this is more of a train wreck. It is strong and cheap, those are some positives I guess. It taste of Aluminum corn syrup, and it really brings out the boozy taste, with a oily syrup tongue coating quality. I’m surprised by the liquor store that it always keeps these Bavaria 8.6’s in stock, or maybe nobody ever buys them, that makes more sense.

Best described as "Weapon Grade Beer". The benefit is the low, low price and the high alcohol content. Also, that is part of the negative side of this dastardly bomb. Tastes and smells of sweet, HFCS boozy corn. Kind of drinks like a shitty, carbonated couch syrup. A dirty dwink.
