Spaten Optimator

Spaten Optimator is a doppelbock from a famous brewery in Germany.
We stopped by this random German deli in DC and it had three Spaten beers on tap: Oktoberfest, Helles, and Optimator. Since I'm a sucker for doppelbocks, I knew I had to order the Optimator.

Inviting sweet caramel nose. Makes you want to dive right in. Thick body. Started with a caramel sweetness and ended with a caramel sweetness. With the thick body and the maltiness backing it, sort of reminded me of delicious loaf of bread soaked in caramel sauce. Yum. Really great aftertaste too. Just a great, well made doppelbock.

  1. It's not random, it's Mozart Cafe. And it's a block away from my office. And I almost ended up there myself.

    And you should've gotten the big one.
