Brewed in the heart of Munich by Spaten, one of Germany’s longest established breweries, Optimator is a classically robust München Doppelbock with a rich chestnut-brown body and attractive off-white head.
Rich, sweet and full of fruity malts, Optimator’s bouquet blends toasty caramel and brown sugar malts with hints of spiced apple and soft, spicy yeast notes.
The palate tells a similar story, with warming stewed fruit notes and soft herbal hops tones, all set in a softly carbonated body. This smooth, chewy ensemble leads to a malty, caramel flourish, releasing sweet plum jam and spicy cedar and cinnamon notes.
