The strongest beer type of the Bear Beer range with 12% Alcohol by volume. Full bodied, full flavour, full strength - unbeatable strongness. This high alcohol content is reached only by fermentation process - no additional alcohol is added. To get enough sugars for the yeast during fermentation to build up this high alcohol content, it is unavoidable to add glucose syrup additional to malted barley.

Dark yellow clear body with white medium weak head. Aromas sugar, corn and malts. Palate is sticky and oily with flat carbonation and mouth feel. Aftertaste grassy notes, sweet malt and and liquor. Overall pretty nasty stuff, every sip sticks in your throat, the ABV is still quite well hidden. Obviously, no need to drink this again.

Can. Dark amber color with a big head. Malts in aroma, some hops. Some metallic and alcoholic hints a well. Good to get you drunk, but better save the liver.

(Dose) Es hat eine dunkle, goldgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, nach Honig alkoholisch. Der Geschmack ist alkoholisch, likörartig, süß mit einer Lohrbeernote. Der Abgang und Nachgeschmack ist nur alkoholisch süß.

Can @ tasting. Aroma is dusty malt, hay alcohol and metal. Very promising. Flavour is overly sweet malt and vegetable. Done here, drainpour.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 Pale gold with a white soapy, thin, lacy head. Smells of dust, hay, metal, malt, and some vegetation. medium frothy body. Horrible initial taste of alcohol and chemical with malt, some plastic and a lasting lingering chemical shit taste. Chemical spill. Couldn’t drink more then one sip.

50cl can at a Ratebeer tasting at ABCBeers. Very thin white head. Clear golden blond pour. Strong alcohol. Something unpleasant in the after-taste.

500 ml can with title labelled "Bear Bear Extra Strong". Clear amber yellow colour; Thin head and white foam which dissipate in 30 seconds. No lacing and evident carbonation. Sweet smell of malt, dark bread and dark fruit. Pronounced sweet taste of malt, liquorices, medicine syrup, faint citrus and alcohol. Medium to light body and oily palate, with hop bitterness, astringency and burning alcohol taste became fairly pronounced near the end, with a slightly uncomortable sweet taste throughtout. Booziness kicks in gradually (after about 10-15 minutes). Slightly dry after taste; Not very easy to mouth due to alcohol’s burning taste and sickly sweet taste.

Comments: first and foremost, this "super-strength lager" is a lowly Euro malt liquor, not a heller bock by any stretch of imagination. However, it tastes milder than the 10% abv Burg Premium Strong Lager. The latter’s sickly syrupy taste is still present here, but at a much lower and tolerable profile, only replaced with cheap tasting, throat burning booziness. Unbalanced taste, poorly expressed alcohol profile is the order of the day. A 100% tramp juice. Avoid.
