Spaten Optimator

Spaten Optimator

Ratebeer 3.65 94th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +3

It emits a vague earthy/roasted malt and caramel nose. There was a quick splash of roasted caramel which was quickly followed by an astringent/herbal coating of hops. As the beer warms up you get a slight bitter cherry sourness and tartness.

Aftertaste 0

Clean, fast and slightly tart.
Alcohol Content +1 7.2%

Value +1

A lovely malty dopplebock.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Pre-load for L4D2 completed. Is is so wrong that I had a long conversation with Meterman about the excellent quality spatters in the new version?
Overall 6/10

Sweet, malty with earthly caramel and lots of alcohol. It was almost perfect.
