COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

labeerinthum (450) - Milano, ITALY - APR 14, 2016
On tap. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il gusto al naso avvisa circa percezioni di orzo, frumento e luppolo. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie ha una discreta resistenza che si prolunga con pizzo finale. La consistenza del liquido è limpida, con poche bollicine fini. Il colore è ambrato rossiccio carico tendente marrone. Il dolce medio è in equilibrio con l’amaro medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, pane, cereali, erba e frutta secca.

Forst Sixtus (Doppelbock, IT, 6.5%)
33 cl bottle. Mahogany-red color, big, thick creamy beige head, roasted smell. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and burnt wood, a shadow of plum. Taste is sweetish with a prominent bitter end down the throat, smooth finish, average persistence, lighly warming. Medium to thick body, oily texture, average carbonation. Quite refined and appreciated, not a pure malt one btw.

sonotono (245) - torino, ITALY - NOV 9, 2015
Colore marrone con riflessi rossastri. Odore di malto caramellato, leggero tostato, una punta di fruttato. Frizzantezza media, sapore di malto caramellato intenso, dolce, leggero tostato e una leggera astringenza finale, qualcosa di fruttato anche nel sapore. Luppolo in secondo piano, da stile. Sapore dolce dominante ma non stucchevole.
