Primator Double Bock

Type: double bock
Origin: Nachod, Czech Republic
Price: $2.69 per 500 mL
NSP: 19.5

This is quite a meaty bastard. I already knew that double bocks are not diet beers, but this one packs in 1900 kJ per 0.5 L (which is 450 calories). We all know Sambo will be staying away from this one. Diet aside, this is really not that great. It is really just too sweet without any interesting flavors. The alcohol is definitely there, lending a slight burn on the way down and the only other thing going on is a caramel maltiness throughout. If you are really a fan of double bocks, give it a try since the NSPs are through the roof, but otherwise pass on this one unless you are in the Czech Republic.

  1. Received a bottle of Primator Double Bock in a "beer of the month club" mailing. I concur with your assessment. Very sweet, very strong. I won't be going out of my way to buy this again, but if in Czech Republic in winter and looking to get hammered, this will work.
