Impression: I had this last year from a bottle and loved it and had been planning this visit ever since. The version on tap was quite different but fantastic just the same. It’s a gorgeous mahogany Bock with a rocky head and a nose of dried stone fruit. Rich malty palate with hints of dried fruit. Bitterness is low but underlying hops are amazingly drying. Lingering dry finish is moreish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
