Bought a bottle of this at a Spanish restaurant in the Metropolitan building of the Ikebukuro station in Tokyo. I bought it for the simple fact that it was the darkest and most expensive beer they had bottles of. It was my first Spanish beer, so I had no idea what to expect. However, I was blown away by how tasty this brew was. It is a dark brew with a nice white head that retains its shape throughout its life. The smell overwhelmed me in a good way as I poured it into the glass. Very spicy and herbal in a way that obviously suits Spanish cuisine. The mouthfeel was a bit weak considering the appearance and the scent of the brew. However, I was overall pleased with this random selection. I get the impression that many other Spanish beers are not in this fashion, and looking at how others ranked this beer, I feel I am out of the popular consensus. Regardless, I loved this brew and I would recommend it if you see it around.

The joke goes that when on holiday in Spain only two lines are important, the first being: "Dos cerveza por favor", and the second: "Dos mas". So I discovered this brew while on holiday in Barcelona, and this particular bottle was broght to Amsterdam by friends.

The history of this beer seems to be that German brewers moved to Barcelona and then started to brew various styles. The Voll Damm (pron. "boy damm") is Deutsches Märzenbier. The brewers used a double dose of malt in the recipe ("se duplicó la cantidad de MALTA EN LA RECETA" as it says verbatim on the label) so hence the "Voll" (full).

My 25 cl bottle showed the BB date as 06/06, but since I kept it in the fridge it was still OK. It poured an amber color, almost no head (maybe because of said date) and just a few bubbles. The smell is strong and sweet, almost caramel. It has some bitterness but is very pleasant and drinks easy. The alcohol is noticable but not on the foreground. There's just a little carbonisation.

Voll-Damm pours with a deep burnished gold colour. The head has an almost off-white colour, moderate size, fair retention and is kind of creamy. Very clear appearance.
The aroma is very malty and presents some fruit notes. The taste is composed of sweet malts, some caramel hints and little hops. Kind of vinous.
The mouthfeel is creamy with a reasonable carbonation, fair alcoholic strength (despite its 7.2% ABV) and a full body.
The finish is sweet, only slightly bitter and quite lingering.

Overall: a great beer. Not oversweet as the majority of euro strong lagers in the market. Well-balanced and very tasteful. Top of the rate Spanish beer.

Somewhat oily in its structure. The first mouth looks just a little first before spicy be easy to drink. However, the finish awakens the senses and endures in the palace where they will mark traces of peanuts and bread and popcorn. Barley is also present and a great way as it is expressed by various peanut fumes. Corn is also there, either in the nose or in the body.
