Karpackie Super Mocne (Super Extra)

This is from the Van Pur Brewery in Rakszava, Poland.

This 9% ABV lager pours a dark golden to light brown-copper in color.  The aroma is malty, grain, molasses and root beer.  The taste is somewhat sweet, but surprisingly for its ABV, it is not overly sweet or cloying.  The taste is malt forward, a bit of molasses, cookie and slight root beer.  For a 9% lager, this is amazingly drinkable.  Generally a lager that high in alcohol tastes terribly sweet, and also sour at the same time, alcohol forward and usually borders on the undrinkable.  This has some similarities to the Zlaty Hrad, but is much better.
