Impression: Gorgeous pour with chestnut hue and ample rocky off-white head. It took forever. A mix of roast, dark chocolate malt and hops in the nose carry over into the richly malty palate. There’s a touch of integrated butter which isn’t obtrusive, a bit in the Czech dark beer vein. The lingering finish avoids being cloying in a semi-dry bittersweet way at 6.9%. While not in the league of Gradl, this Bock is very much a product of this area. It tastes like part of the same family.
