COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
750ml bottle
limited release
This is literally a double bock. A strong, dark and malty beer with very little bitterness. It emerged from Munich in the late 18th century when the monks brewed it as a Lenten beer to be consumed during their fasts. This liquid bread has a rich flavour that is dark and delicious, toffeeish with some sweetness. This beer’s light and fruity notes pair well with an earthy camembert or a nutty cheddar. Its good carbonation cuts well across a pungent blue or a creamy goats cheese. It accompanies savoury bacon, aged ham, venison and roast pork very well indeed. Also smoked fish, salumi & chorizo will go well with this exciting beer.
