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 )

Ritzn (1136) - GERMANY - APR 6, 2017
Hazy brown with medium white head. Aroma is citrus pips chestnut grass minimal roast and brown sugar. Taste is a bit sour citrus with medium caramel sweetness and medium roast bitterness. Medium body ok drinkable. Slight mealy finish. The combination of fresh sourness and doppelbock is rather meh for me.

MoritzF (9759) - 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.

Flavour of rich toasted malts, fresh herbs, rich tart berries, grass and bread. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Dry, warming, malty finish. Not too sweet at all. Great.

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.
