Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark amber hue with and off-white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a partial trail.

S: Malty sweet aroma with caramel background.

T: Similar to the smell the sweet malty flavor hits your palate at first followed by some caramel notes.

M: Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation.

O: Solid doppelbock – surprising light for a 7.2% abv brew.

Wenn ich nach Munchen bin, drinke ich viel Spaten Optimator. Diese Bier smecht am bestens mit Blut und Zahne Wurst. Die farbe ist dunkel braun. Ich finde das Bier ist sehr gut fur eine dobbelbach. Komm! Drinken Spaten Optimator mit mir!

Prost!!!

... and, this is really a very fine Dobbelbach. Brings back memories of Munich... anyway, pours a rich dark brown with a creamy 1/4" head. Rich sweet flavor; very smooth. This is just bond warming on a chilly autumn night. Would share this with friends or guests any day of the week.

From notes: Poured a dark, dirty brown with some amber notes. Aroma of sweet malt, wheat, caramel, and brown sugar. Not bursting with aroma. Flavor was pretty minerally, perhaps too much so initially. But that goes away. Caramel and brown sugar notes are very strong. Some vanilla and brea. Thin mouthfeel and a good drinkable beer.
