Bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. Looks great - as you would expect from a Munchner special; reddish brown, like a beaver (the four legged kind) submerged in cherry cola. Rich, delicious aroma of Lyle’s golden syrup cake and chicken satay mixed with honey and sultanas. Seriously. Taste is initially strongly honey, syrup and ginger but settles down, avoiding being too sweet as the bittersweet malt aftertaste comes through. There’s definitely some lemon juice and Benylin in there too. The one downside was that it felt a bit thin and watery but with a taste like this I didn’t mind too much. A triumph indeed - and my first 4+ score in 50 beers. It’s been a long time...

Farbe: fast so schwarz wie Guiness Schaum: wenigNase: etwas derb dunkel malzig.Geschmack: ziemlich sauer auf der Zunge, das hält auch etwas an. Der eigentliche Geschmack ist dann aber breiter Malz, leichte Röstaromen, insgesamt aber eher süß, angerauchter Honig ;-) Das bleibt dann so auch als Nachgeschmack.Das Bier ist ziemlich schwer, ok ist ja auch ein Doppelbock.Ist nicht ganz meins, aber nur weil ich nicht auf dunkle Böcke stehe, dafür ein gutes Bier.

50 cl bottle. Dunkel aspect, compact beige head, dunkler smell. Burnt malts and caramel, brown sugar and woody notes basement aromas. Balanced taste, slightly bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture, decent finish. Smooth finish, quite raw overall but faithful on the style.

jamaty (1545) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Color coca cola, mas oscura. Bonita espuma de tres dedos, muy cremosa y ocre, manchada marrón. Aroma marcado. Regaliz, sirope. Excelente en boca, muy cremosa, muy agradable. Predominio dulce, caramelo, garrapiñados. Final más amargo. Mejor para postre, o como copa. Pero buena en cualquier caso. Le falta complejidad para la excelencia.

La triumphator è un’ ottima birra scura, con grado alcolico di sette gradi, è comunque piacevole e facile a bersi. Si notano sapori di caffè, ma non prevalenti.

Picked this beer up on my Munich tour. The beer pours a dark brown with some ruby shining through when held up to a light with a medium sized off white head that left plenty of lacing. The aroma is brown bread, caramel, and some hops. The taste is very similar to the aroma and the mouthfeel is medium and silky.
