Hartmann Bock Dunkel

beer in glass with bottle

Hartmann Bock Dunkel

Brewery: Brauerei Hartmann
Style: B
Color: dark amber

Head:off-white, ample, thinning

Nose: rich
Body: full

rich malt, spicy,  some fried fruit and chocolate
Finish: somewhat sticky

Served: from a bottle bought locally

Impression: This is a great brewpub guesthouse in the Little Switzerland of Franconia. They serve excellent food and have some decent beers so was optimistic about this dark bock when I saw it in the shop. It poured nicely enough but the head didn’t last long. It had a nice rich malty nose and the initial impression was good, some dried fruit and chocolate sneaking in but the finish was a bit uneven and sticky. This isn’t entirely unusual in a 7% bock but in Franconia, the best avoid it with some fair hopping.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
