(The description of Maximator Dopplebock below is just one example of the quality beers you'll find at OktoberFest.)
Reviewed as possibly the “best Doppelbock on the Planet” by some, beer is almost a religious experience in Germany, and a historical one, too. Few greater examples of this exist than Munich’s Augustiner brewery, which dates back to 1328. Munich’s oldest brewery, Augustiner is less well known than its counterparts Spaten, Hacker-Pschorr, and Lowenbrau. But this brewery produces some truly wonderful beer, with Augustiner Maximator being perhaps the best of their brews, and maybe, just maybe mind you, the best doppelbock on the planet. Augustiner Maximator pours to a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head formation and a sweet, nutty malt nose. The head quickly subsides and leaves you with a very rich, nutty malty, chewy-toffeeish beer with a thick sweet body and a warming alcohol finish that is balanced nicely by a touch of grassy hops. Hints of chocolate and molasses are present, too. (Review by John Staradumsky)
