COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Doble Malta es lo que le da a Voll-Damm su inconfundible fuerza, cuerpo y sabor. Doble Malta es la seña de identidad de esta cerveza.

El hecho de añadir el doble de malta a la cerveza, es una solución hallada en el siglo XIX para la conservación de la cerveza. Cuando el buen tiempo llegaba, la producción de cerveza se detenía debido a las altas temperaturas, que no permitían la correcta fermentación del mosto con la levadura. Para contrarrestar sus efectos en el último lote, el de marzo, se le añadía el doble de malta para que pudiera aguantar todo el verano sin echarse a perder. De ahí el nombre Märzenbier (Cerveza de Marzo).

El primer lote de estas cervezas solía abrirse coincidiendo con el Oktoberfest, la fiesta de octubre celebrada en Munich dónde la cerveza era el centro de la celebración. Las Märzenbier, como Voll-Damm, son la estrella de esta fiesta que se ha convertido en el acontecimiento cervecero más importante del mundo.

Dark amber, no head. Boozy, malty aroma; hint of Barley Wine. Light syrupy body, not too much carb. Flavour has bready malt, crisp finish.

33 cl. can @ Home. Aroma: not very intense aromas. Hints of grains, unfermented grains, malts, toasted malts, straw, hay, caramel, very light citrus. Sulfur and maybe glue overtones. Not a lot of hop aromas in here. Hints of alcohol. Appearance: medium amber-copper color with very high head thickness. Light beige foam made of mainly big bubbles. Perfectly clear. High retention. Low Brussels’ lacing. Taste: light to medium sweetness, low to medium bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of malts, toasted malts, hints of caramel, grains, bread crust, straw, cereals. Quite well balanced. Sweet at first and increasingly bitter toward the finish. Alcohol is well hidden but a light warming effect is noticeable. Palate: medium body, watery to oily texture, medium carbonation, quite long dry finish with medium bitterness and flavors of malts, toasted malts, grains, hints of caramel, bread crust, cereals and very light citrus. Overall: not extremely bad for a mass-brewery beer. Not much aromas here. Not much hop flavors. I think the beer would improve with a lower alcohol level. Nothing to remember. Bread crust and toasted malts flavors are not bad, but there is only one layer of flavor.

tricksta_p (4744) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle from Kisjes Slijterijen, Meppel. Aroma is malt, caramel, barley, with some alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet and moderate bitter with some a mild booze sting. Body is medium. A bit boring with lots of caramel and barley, alcohol doesn’t help. Not a complete loss, but not my kind of beer at all.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 strong, malty. Rich, clear copper. decent head. Really nice taste and nicely rounded. Like having a big bite of soft fresh grain bread. Very attractive in and out of the tin.

Es una cerveza de sabores fuertes, muy parecida a las super strong, pero sin tanto amargor. Es robusta en sabor, con notas a cereales y tambien a pan. Aroma no tan fuerte a malta. No es muy dulce. Deja una sensación en el paladar a amargo, no tan intenso
