Name – Spaten Optimator
Country – Germany
Type – Doppelbock
Appearance – Very deep and dark red, almost brown. A very small head that disappeared quickly.
Smell – Sweet malty smell of caramel.
Taste – A nice caramel taste with a slight trace of fruit. Kind of heavy and filling. A little bit of a bitter finish but not bad or overpowering.
I had absolutely no clue what to expect with this one and was pleasantly surprised. I probably couldn’t drink a number of these one after another because of how heavy it is but it was a very good beer for sipping and I think it would go well with a meat meal.
Overall Grade – B
