Das „Starke“. Ein dunkles, unfiltriertes Starkbier, mit schier unergründlicher Seele. Sehr gehaltvoll. Nach Meinung unseres Braumeisters, das beste Bier überhaupt. Nur in der Fastenzeit erhältlich. ( ca. Ende Februar bis Ostern )

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
(swing top bottle) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a tall but quickly collapsing tanned frothy head. Slightly dusty, toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, chocolate and bread crusts. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a prickly carbonation. Toast-malty base with notes of bread crusts, toasted grains, caramel and shades of herbal hoppy spice; moderately sweet and delicately hop bitter finish with bready notes and caramel in the aftertaste. Not as sophisticated as anticipated. 21.VIII.16

50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark copper-mahogany color with a small head. Malts, caramel, some toasted notes, ripe fruits and faint yeast. Malty flavor, not that sweet though, some dark berries, yeast and caramel, faint wooden notes on the finish. Malty, full-bodied and not overly sweet. Quite nice.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
0.5 l bottle at Timo A’s. Dark amber color. Sweetish aroma of raisins and dark bread. Sweet bready and raisiny taste with toasted nuts, honey and some herbal notes. Warming alcohol tastes clearly and dryes the finish. Fairly good dobbelbock but higher alcohols and bit on a high side.

Bottle from Vino Birra e Fantasia, Castelfidardo
Dark brown color with medium sized creamy head. Nice aroma of caramel, light malt, very light cereals, and a hint of bottom fermentation esters. Full bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel; caramel flavor, with moderate residual sweetness, and a deep nutty touch; correct bitterness.
Very good.

Swing top bottle 50cl. Cloudy brown brew with firm and stable head. Massive malt, almost sweet and grainy, hoppy dry but floral finish. Great fresh brew from this great historical brewery!
