Deshalb braut die Privat-Brauerei Gut Forsting e.G. zur Fastenzeit diese krftige Spezialitt: den Dunklen Doppelbock . Seine alkoholische, malzbetonte Note sowie seine ausgewogene Bittere geben dem Dunklen Doppelbock ein angenehmes und rundes Mundgefhl.

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2013
(bottle) Clear, dark brown colour with a big and beige foamy head. Toast-malty aroma with a present note of molasses, caramel and Bavarian Blockmalz. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Syrupy malty and mildly toasted taste with caramel, notes of beet sugar and a whiff of chocolate; sweet and slightly sticky malty finish with molasses in the aftertaste. A very sweet example of the style. 01.XI.13
