COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flüssiges bricht Fasten nicht ! Besonders in Bayern ist man sich dieser alten Tradition bewusst. Deshalb braut die Privat-Brauerei Gut Forsting e.G. zur Fastenzeit diese kräftige Spezialität: den Dunklen Doppelbock . Seine alkoholische, malzbetonte Note sowie seine ausgewogene Bittere geben dem Dunklen Doppelbock ein angenehmes und rundes Mundgefühl.
