from gravity barrel dispense at their Bockanstich in 2024

Impression: Nice to finally get this Anstich after missing it for many years. It’s much softer as expected with no sharpness to the ample hops. A rich unfiltered golden brew with an ample head and a mixed nose of light grain and hops. This is a marvelously crafted Bock with the kind of balance most lack while fully embracing the richly malty palate the style is defined by. The hopping is there from the start but never intrudes. It’s drying effect is subtle, sublime and moreish making it dangerously drinkable at 7%. More sublime gravity dispensed too.

Back to the beer list.
