Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock
Manufacturer: Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer
ABV: 6.7%
A German beer that has a dominant malty taste. Almost black with a very slight red tone, a sensational, festive foam and truly extraordinary fragrance that at first summons up visions of greaves lard.

There is very little of the sweetness that is frequently to be tasted with doppelbock beer.

ABV: 7.1%
Sweet, tangy malted wheat with jolting tastes of honey candy and spiced cookies followed by a bright, acidic 'pop' of lemon citrus. Smooth banana tones. Very slight hop character and bitterness. Slight carbonic bite from all that carbonation present. Sweetish honey-wheat flavor on the effervescent finish.

Zhiguly Grande 12
Manufacturer: Rinkuskiu Alaus Darykla
ABV: 11.9%
Out of a bottle this beer was a hazy orange color with one finger of off-white head. The retention was ok and the lacing spotty. The aroma was subtle, centered around sweet malt and vodka-like booze. The flavors were of caramel, raisins, dark fruit and, of course, booze. Still, for nearly 12% ALC I was amazed by how drinkable it was.
