Sample at the Mondial. Bright, cloudy orange-gold, thick white head of moderate duration...lightly fruity/malty nose, melon and dry grass...big malty flavors, light alcohol, sweet and a bit syrupy, grainy and with strange hints of licorice, herbal/grassy hops subdued to the rather thick mouthfeel which dries out considerably at the finish. Seems a bit oxidized to me, but still worth a try.

Bottle (341 ml). Completely clear golden with a medium mostly diminishing white head and huge lacing. Aroma is grassy and mineral with notes of caramel and alcohol. Taste is grassy with booze, noble hops and caramel. Mouthfeel is oily. Impressive body for a pilsner. This beer is greatly balanced, quite complex and fairly drinkable for is 8.5% abv. Massive Imperial Pilsner. Another wonderful beer by DDC!

(Rating numéro 800, 341 ml) Le liquide a une robe dorée passablement foncée. La petite tête blanche se retire après quelques minutes. Une dentelle se dessine sur le verre. Le nez est un échange harmonieux entre des céréales mielleuses et des parfums de foin et de fleurs des champs. Des arômes fruités réussissent à s’affirmer. Les saveurs sont très intéressantes : des houblons amérisants et aromatiques viennent appuyer des notes maltées légèrement sucrées. En bouche, le liquide prend un bel espace. Son pétillement modéré honore les saveurs. Sa texture est épaisse, huileuse à souhait. La finale est marquée par une amertume de houblons bien poivrés.

On tap at the pub during the RBSG. Clear golden color with a syrup sweet malt nose and a thin, off white head. Big candi sugar, caramel sweetness flavor with overripe oranges and some peach. Noticably big beer.

Moderate to full, malty and sweet aroma, caramel and some fruitiness and herbal hoppyness, some alcohol, Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some fruitiness and caramel, some alcohol with herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and faint fruitiness, some herbal hoppyness, alcohol. Too sweet and too much alcohol - herbal hopppyness just do not work here.

Draft at Mondial 2005. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes present. Perhaps I can smell some nobles and Saaz with some boozy undertones as well. I detect a tad of sulfur as well. Moderately hazy orange-honey color with an off-white head. Quite sweet to start with honey notes turning more grainy and quite cereal like. More sweetness in the finish. Moderately cloying. Alcohol is hidden well.

Nice golden color with a white medium head. Impressive aroma of spicy hops and malt. Great, explosive flavor of malt and spicy hops. Bitter finish. Very full body, medium carbonation. What is nice is that you don’t feel the alcohol even if it’s 7,5%. Excellent, well balanced beer.

That beer was especially brewed for DDC 6th anniversary, and I choose it for my 250th rating. It pours a very nice gold body topped with an average white bubbly head that leaves a good lacing. Strong and well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, spicy and herbal hints. Taste is also great. It bears some sweet and honeyish notes. Very nice bittersweet finish. This is definitely one of the best European Strong Lagers you can have.
