During a few days of vacation in southern Tyrol, I looked for beers made there. Forst brand was the one I liked the most. That yes, a beer without much quality. I expected to find better beer.

Had in Italy in a 2015 trip and probably only because it is listed on the "1001."

-tap pour-dark brown with dark carbonation, a bit turgid. Aroma of caramel and a waft of allspice. Flavor of dark malt, spice and some roasted nuttiness. A bit sweeter than I prefer, but good.

11.2 ounce bottle, with best before dating on the rear label.

Dark dark amber, slight head and moderate lite mocha head.

Caramel nose.

Heavy carmel again on the palate. Kinda on the thin side..

Meh, barely worth a try

A: Dark amber with a ruby hue, some carbonation though its so dark its hard to see through. Starts with 3 fingers of yellow beige tinged creamy head.


S: Crème brulee, dark toasted notes, a slight buttery note though I not in a negative way, more like a butter crème dessert, nutty like almonds.


T: Dark toasted notes with a light sweetness, slight caramelized to almost burnt sugar, no buttery notes.


M: Thick body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky feel in the mouth afterward.


O: Great one for this style coming from Italy. In looks and taste and smell its reminding me of a barley wine only on a much lighter scale. Found at Carrefour, Kunming and drank Feb 2nd, 2015.

Had a bottle with tacos on a cold, cold night. A doppelbock seemed like the right style for the weather and a decent pairing for spicy meat. It basically tastes like a slightly lighter Spaten Optimator. It's a little sweet and thick, but you could certainly drink a few if so inclined. Sixtus has a simple caramel and earthy clove character with a hint of corn.
