COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Absolvinator ist ein kräftiges, malzaromatisches dunkles Starkbier, in der Tradition der Fastenbiere vor Ostern. Als einziges Bier, das den Namen einer Schülerverbindung (RAAV Absolvia Hof 1869) trägt, wird es eingebraut aus dunklen Spezialmalzen und nach dem klassischem Brauverfahren produziert. Vier Monate gereift, kommt es zu Beginn der Fastenzeit beim traditionellen Starkbieranstich zum Ausstoß.

Koelschtrinker (10382) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Dieses Bier kann man in einem Wort beschreiben: Malz. Von Anfag bis Ende ein lockerer, ausgeglichener Malzgeschmack. Den Alkoholgehalt schmeckt man zum Ende hin leicht heraus. Zudem ist es raltiv süffig. Lässt sich schön trinken! Test vom 24.5.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,10,8,10,10 - 9,60

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008
Bottled. A slightly hazy amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits as well as metallic notes of alcohol. The flavor is slightly acidic with notes of brettanomyces, metallic alcohol, berries and lighter notes of caramel and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry bitter and alcoholic finish.
