However, it does leav a very interesting ‘melted peeps’ flavor when used right, which is floated and set on fire in a cocktail. Or just floated, it brings a kind of ‘angry burnt egg custard’ thing to a drink. I wouldn’t drink it on the rocks…
OK, so we got a bunch of German hard liquor for Oktoberfest-week-at-home (Covid-19, thanks), including a bottle of Stroh 160.
Each bottle we had a shot to taste it, and Stroh 160 gave the reaction "whoa! WTF!" from all of us, and I drink bourbon every week, sometimes 50% alcohol. But, 80% alcohol anything is obviously not to be drunk straight (unless you are trying to get drunk fast or kill yourself).
So, another bottle we got was Bärenjäger, a 35% alcohol honey (real) liqueur. That is very tasty, Stroh has a nice taste/smell, but the 80% alcohol is way too strong, so mixing 50-50 of each was very nice.
Bottom line, don't drink something like everclear-with-flavor and expect anything other than being knocked on your butt. In a mixed drink, I'd recommend it, because it brings a punch to the party, along with a uniquely tasty flavor.
It has a subtle butterscotch n spice taste, but you're immediately betrayed by 160 proof. It's been rare for me to drink this and not feel sick later.

In the bottle gifted to me by Uncle Rob. I’m not sure why this entry is any different from Stroh 80, which I assume is also 160 proof? Pours a light brown color. The aroma is melted plastic, band aids, and acetylene. Palate is liquid fire. If you can ascertain flavor before fixing your oral tissues, then you might notice a strong vanilla. This has its place and ought not be dismissed just because it is undrinkable.
