Starkbierfest is held every year in Munich with the beers originally brewed in the early 1600s as a means to satisfy the hunger of Munich monks during Lent. Whilst they had to abstain from food, liquids were allowed and so the monks decided to create a beer that was rich in nutrients and calories. Although these beers also pack a high ABV%, the term Starkbier (strong beer) actually refers to the high concentration of dissolved solids in the beer.
Rich and dark with lots of fruitiness and an almost silky coffee and caramel undertone. One of the best -ator beers out there.
