RATINGS: 399   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.54/5   EST. CALORIES: 210   ABV: 7%
Bottle and can: Filtered
It is of a beautiful dark golden colour with a deep lustre. It has the color of honey and the transparency of spring water, as well as an excellent body and taste. It is very well saturated with carbon dioxide and has a pleasant, noble hops bitter, as well as a unique malt-hops taste.

Can. Frothy good head, mostly deminishing. Nice amber colour. Sweet falvour with hints of caramel. Week aroma, nothing there. Not a pleasent beer.

Make Mine Mocne! Pardon me. I’m a bit stressed from studying all day and am taking a break to reward myself with... a European strong lager? Actually, not that bad. It pours a golden-orange color with a two-fingered, creamy head that actually lingers for a while. The aroma is vinuous, sweet and grainy, with a strong alcohol undercurrent. The flavor is a peppery, sweet malt with an herbal hop bitterness that turns kind of metallic in the finish. Quite drinkable.

Bottle. Sweet and sugary with lots of alcohol. Some spicy malt aromas up front. Little balance - faint to no hop presence.

Honey colour, medium head. Sweet aroma. As for the taste, this stuff is so sweet as if some guy dropped sugarcubes into it. Almost no malt can be felt, some cream coffee flavour improves the impression. Must be nauseous after 3 or 4 bottles. Doesn’t taste like a lager, even a strong one. Quite OK, could’ve been much better with the coffee flavour if it hadn’t been do damn sweet.

Bottled. Reddish brown colour, huge beige creamy head. Sweet caramelly aroma. Caramellish sweet malty flavour with hints of alcohol.

Light copper/ orange in colour with a fair bit of carbonation. Aromas are of ripe soft fruit, caramel, menthol, and a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied lager type of mouthfeel with this one. Strong malt presence with at least some herbal hop contribution. I was expecting bad things from this beer, but it’s not too bad at all (although not really my style). It would probably go over well with the malt liquor crowd.

500 ml bottle, similar to photo with the name "WARKA" where the word "STRONG" is and the word "BEER" where the name "WARKA" is.

Bottle poured an amber/orange brew with an average-sized, cream-colored head that left a wee bit of lace while fading quickly to a ring. Lightly vinous aromas were musty and touched with honey, supported by grainy malts and herbal hops. Flavor was predominantly sweet with a slightly-off vegetable middle and an odd, cloyingly sweet/metallic finish. Better than expected, though.

Canned. An old gold coloured lager with little life. The aroma is sweet and a bit antiseptic. The taste is sweet and honey-like. Little body considering its strength. The alcohol is not at all noticable. Poor.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of GregClow. Pours a nice clear amber-orange colour with a spare white head. Fair lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel, fruit and alcohol. Flavour is also sweet: some caramel, fruit and honey balanced with grains and alcohol. Almost Scotch Ale-like. The aftertaste unfortunately is a bit harsh. Not bad, I was expecting much worse but it was pleasant.

Bottle from the LCBO - shared with GregClow (thanks), jerc, blankboy & HogTownHarry. Nice copper appearance, small white head. Not much in aroma at all. Sweet malt taste, slightly watery but surprisingly flavourful. Light bubbly mouthful. Certainly an interesting mix of alcohol and sweetness in there. Harsh finish detracts, but I was expecting standard crap Euro lager and this was a nice surprise.
