Tonight I had the fifth different Augustiner Brauerei Bier (out of eight) available. Augustiner is the oldest brewery in Munich … so far, I’ve had the Edelstoff (export), Weissbier, Dunkel, Oktoberfestbier, and tonight — the Maximator! Yes! I may be able to complete the cycle on Augustiner brews … I’m planning one last trip to Munich and maybe i can have the other three there …
Oh, the Maximator is a very nice Doppel Bock — interestingly enough, that’s two doppel bocks in a row (had the Andechs doppel bock last night).
From a comparison’s standpoint … they were both quite good and right in style … without having put them head-to-head, it’s hard to discuss any subtleties there might have been.
I had to drink it out of the bottle, but that didn’t change the flavor at all.
