The famous, highly popular strong Forst Beer. The special malts used and the specific production process help to create its unique caramel flavour. It is immensely, unforgettably satisfying from the first sip. Its dark colour and delicate hoppy notes evoke memories of the original strong beers and the traditional art of beer making in monasteries. Suggested serving temperature 7°C.
Taste: Velvety with a distinctly malty feel and warm notes of roast, spicy caramel.
Flavour: An intense fragrance of roasted malt, refined with some discreet hoppy hints.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, maize gritz, hops.

KeefOz (1490) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Tasted 15/4/15 at Cantina Dello Zio Bramante, Manarola, Italy. BB 06.06.15. Poured a dark coppery amber with a one-finger light tan foamy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma dominated by sweet malt plus a hint of sweet fruit; no obvious hops. Taste very malty and sweet with a hint of roasting and a hint of dark fruits; no real bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth, clean, very sweet and with a syrupy mouth-feel. A lingering long sweetness on the finish. Nice.

deep reddish-brown color; sweet, caramel malt aroma; sweet, caramel malt flavor up front with nutty, mild dark fruit notes; semi bitter, bready finish; very well balanced and quite smooth; this is not quite a doppelbock, but it is a very enjoyable beer

Kita (1835) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 19, 2015
Draft in Cortina D’Ampezzo. Clear brown color with small frothy off-white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, light roasted malt, dried fruits and grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel and nutty, follows by mild fruity acidity and bready with mild bitter finish. Medium body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Pretty nice surprise from Forst...

Lambister (436) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle @ west coast of Italy. Darkish brown color with a thin light brown head. Nose is pretty sweet with a nutty character. While flavors are malty and roasted, it has notes of nuts. Bit too much bite at the middle cuts the finish and the flavors too quickly, otherwise decent brew.

zenkis (747) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours coppery, intense reddish with beige-yellowish finger wide frothy top, light to medium lasing. Aroma- first was unpleasant boiled vegetables, a bit toasted malts although almost no malty, some licorice, a bit sour- messy. Taste is sweet, malty flavor, a bit nutty, minimal bitter, pleasant but short. Moderate to full body, light dry finish, toasted-roasted like aftertaste. Except aroma- enjoyable brew.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - DEC 13, 2014
Niedliches kleines Fläschchen (20 cl) von Getränkefeinkost Berlin. - Rotbraun, klar, rasch schwindender Schaum. - In der Nase breit süßes Karamelmalz mit schwachen Röstnoten, herb fruchtig-weinig, etwas fuselig - wie ein typischer Doppelbock halt. - Antrunk kräftig karamelmalzig aber nicht zu süß. Brotrinde, leichtes Röstmalz. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Abgang kräftig holzig-krautig hopfenherb, wenngleich etwas dumpf. Längerer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ordentlicher Doppelbock nach deutscher Tradition. Den „Maisgritz“ (Maisgrieß) schmeckt man nicht heraus.
