Impression: Since I’m a big fan of their Dunkles and this was reportedly a dark Bock, I’ve always wanted to try it but haven’t managed to get to the their brewpub when it’s on. So, I was happy to find this in a bottle shop and indeed it is a very dark beauty, about as black as a beer can get with a massive rocky tan head.  It’s richly malty with a nice touch of dark chocolate in both the nose and palate. It’s a heady brew at 8.2% but it manages to be fairly dry and the lingering finish is bittersweet.  It’s gorgeous and getting it on tap is even higher up on my list of things to do now.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
