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 7C.
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.

What a beer: good looks, nice aroma and - most of all - a consistent malty body with nice burnt honey hints. In my opinion, the best Italian beer.

ozzatoadisback (154) - 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 im 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.

blariacum (73) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Fles. Gekocht op vakantie in Itali vorig jaar (gaf toen 3,5 ster). Heeft smaak, al is het gematigde doppelbock. Dat ik een fles van Frst kocht was niet zo gek. Ooit jaren geleden op vakantie zon Frst pul mee naar huis genomen vanwege al dat pilsener. Jeugdsentiment.

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.

ippopotamo36 (2319) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle directly from Merano-Italy, consumed in Kosovo. Dark caramel pour, vivid reddish highlights and frothy brownish foam. Nose: dry prunes, figs, marron glasses and caramel. A touch of almond pastry. Nice. Mouth: a bit unbalanced, far too sweet with an untuned bitter overall. It seems has more ABV than the label, honestly. Not bad, not a thrill either.

The aroma is rich of dried figues and carob, caramelized malts and sweet. Tastes good as well. Im surprised, didnt expect something this nice from a cheap beer. I should have bought more!

Caramel and roasted, light brown, light/medium body, medium carbonation, taste similar to the aroma...refreshing and an industrial alternative.
