Brewery: Paulaner
Town: Munich

Style:
Dopplebock
Color:
deep amber, lightly filtered
Head:
tan, creamy, fading
Nose:
malty but a hint of hops
Body:
full-bodied, low carbonation
Palate:
a big malty flavor, quite dry for strength
Finish: dry and bitter
Served:
on tap at Starkbierfestival in Munich

Impression: I’ve always found this to be much better on tap than from a bottle and in the early days of my going to the Starkbierfest, it was served gravity dispense from huge wooden barrels.  This is sadly no longer the case but it’s still a magical beer. What strikes you right away is how easy it goes down for how strong it is. It’s unmistakably malty and full-bodied but the ample hops used achieves an amazing dryness in the finish.

How about a Weizenbock?
