COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Doble Malta es lo que le da a Voll-Damm su inconfundible fuerza, cuerpo y sabor. Doble Malta es la seña de identidad de esta cerveza.

El hecho de añadir el doble de malta a la cerveza, es una solución hallada en el siglo XIX para la conservación de la cerveza. Cuando el buen tiempo llegaba, la producción de cerveza se detenía debido a las altas temperaturas, que no permitían la correcta fermentación del mosto con la levadura. Para contrarrestar sus efectos en el último lote, el de marzo, se le añadía el doble de malta para que pudiera aguantar todo el verano sin echarse a perder. De ahí el nombre Märzenbier (Cerveza de Marzo).

El primer lote de estas cervezas solía abrirse coincidiendo con el Oktoberfest, la fiesta de octubre celebrada en Munich dónde la cerveza era el centro de la celebración. Las Märzenbier, como Voll-Damm, son la estrella de esta fiesta que se ha convertido en el acontecimiento cervecero más importante del mundo.

patxa (199) - MEXICO - AUG 30, 2014
Nice golden color. White decent head with an acceptable lace. Malty aroma with notes of earth and leather. Some of the characteristics of a dubbel are present, like the lightly liquor like taste, the strong presence of malt and the spiciness in the palate, however the brewer states this should be considered as a Marzen. Medium bodied with an accent of alcohol that ruins it a little bit.

Monchito_IPA (163) - SPAIN - AUG 16, 2014
Dulce, con aroma y sabor artificial, metálico y un alcohol marcado y desagradable. El doble de todo que cualquier otra basura nacional.
