COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The famous, highly popular strong Forst Beer. The special malts used and the specific production process help to create its unique caramel flavour. It is immensely, unforgettably satisfying from the first sip. Its dark colour and delicate hoppy notes evoke memories of the original strong beers and the traditional art of beer making in monasteries. Suggested serving temperature 7°C.
Taste: Velvety with a distinctly malty feel and warm notes of roast, spicy caramel.
Flavour: An intense fragrance of roasted malt, refined with some discreet hoppy hints.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, maize gritz, hops.

wee tiny bubbles in a deep ruby body. a sparse, loose light brown head. Rich and malty. Ripe fruits and dark caramel big flaked barley and barley grain presence. hints of spice and chocolate. Dry and thin, very clean. roasted grains and caramel prevail, some woody dry notes. intensely dry and roasty.

Una delle poche industriali che amo veramente. In perfetto stile eccellente, soprattutto alla spina e spillata bene. Fa si che la Forst sia la birreria artigianale più amata dai cultori delle grandi birre. Per il mio gusto meriterebbe un punteggio ben più alto di quello attuale.

Flaske. På pizzerie med udsigt over garda søen. Rødravfarvet klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Duft af Bock masser af malt og sødme. Smagen er sødmefuld igen maltdomineret. Fin øl

Ottima birra, gusto deciso che accompagna bene salumi e formaggi saporiti. Come sempre meglio se spillata (bene) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NordicV (2344) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2017
Bärnstensfärgad till ljusbrun öl med ett gulbeige skum. Doft av malt, bröd, mörka och torkade frukter och lättare jord och lövtoner. Detsamma återkommer i smaken. Ganska tunn kropp för sin alkoholhalt.

ozzatoadisback (172) - ITALY - MAY 9, 2017
Dark brown with reddish hints. Average white head, ok retention and some lacing. Served way too cold, almost freezed, aroma was very much subdued but since the beer came out quite well while warming up i’m giving it a benefit. Roasted malts, slight coffe and caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with very good balance. Caramel malts with maybe a slight hint of spiciness, roasted malts, hint of coffee and maybe some hints of dark fruits. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, slightly creamy. Overall not too impressive flavourwise, but highly drinkable and very well balanced.

Fles. Gekocht op vakantie in Italië vorig jaar (gaf toen 3,5 ster). Heeft smaak, al is het gematigde doppelbock. Dat ik een fles van Först kocht was niet zo gek. Ooit jaren geleden op vakantie zo’n Först pul mee naar huis genomen vanwege al dat pilsener. Jeugdsentiment.

peponi (1861) - Hannover, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2017
Aroma: crunchy bread skin, caramel, roasted malts. Appearance: brown color and creamy head. Taste: huge alcohol, very rough, some malty notes, hard to drink. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: What a joke.
