Another solid seasonal product from Fischerbräu. The name refers to the practice of fasting during Lent, designed to mimic the Doppelbocks generated by monks to provide sustenance during their fasts. A successful effort, I'd say.

Comes out a cloudy pale amber under a one finger light beige head that fades slowly but steadily, leaving a substantial set of thick rings. The nose is very malty, with hints of both caramel and carnation. The mouth is quite heavy, sticky, chewy and yet with substantial carbonation. The flavor profile is strong, both malty and bitter at once. There is a hint of apple amongst the malt, before the bitter eventually becomes dominant. The hops are neither acidic nor espresso-like, closer to confierous but really just smoothly spicey. Strong and subdued at once, the bitterness is very pleasant, just as is this beer. Worth a visit.
