Beer Tasting: Spaten Optimator Doppelbock

  • Bryan thought the bocks were all gone. Well they're bock (wince). Spaten Optimator Doppelbock was the next victim. Purchased at the Beer Yard in Wayne, PA. Are you tired of the Appearance, Smell, Taste....etc.? We were too. We'll be changing things up a bit to make our notes reflect the experience of the tasting a bit more.

Adam's Notes:

  • Brownish Red
  • Sweet almost heavy smell of malt & yeast
  • tastes of vegetable malt & yeast
  • something about this style that really turns me on, something about a bock that reeks of spring
  • I'd buy a case
  • Not for Scott

Bryan's Notes:

  • Looks cola-colored
  • Has a sweet, malty nose with a bit of alcohol
  • Taste of dry roasted flavors and some mild bitterness
  • Deceivingly easy to drink for 7+% ABV
  • I'd like to have at least a six-pack from Adam's case if he'd allow
