Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: This is the kind of Bock you hope for from a brewery whose only other beer is a dry dark one. It’s a bigger and even better version. This is one easy to drink Bock but full-flavored just the same, with a nice dried fruit component intermingled with some roast. What really sets it apart is a firm underlying hoppiness that makes for a long, bittersweet finish. I’d say, the finish is even drier than their flagship and that take some doing in a strong beer. It’s only around in early May so time your visit well.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
