Notes/Commercial Description:
Shegöat is a brand new beer to our lineup, based on one of Patrick's original, multiple award winning homebrew recipes. Based primarily on the traditional weizenbock style of Germany, brewed with both malted barley and wheat, the beer is rich in the flavors of bananas, cloves and caramel with a notes of cake spice hovering in the background. Just like the banana bread that großmutter used to make.

A- Dark brown in color with ruby highlights. Persistent creamy/frothy tan head. Surprisingly murky for a lager.

S- Richy toasty/malty character that is unsurprising for a dopplebock. Some caramel character as well with dark fruits such as prunes and figs. Small amounts of alcohol apparent.

T- The rich malty character dominates from start to finish. Toasty malt comes through the strongest as the dark fruits apparent in the smell linger in the background. A nutty and toffee character is noticeable in the middle as the finish of the beer once again returns to the strong malt with small amounts of alcohol.

M- Medium-full body with a creamy carbonation and slight alcohol presence.

O- A great dopplebock. Missing some of the overall quality of the best dopplebocks, but still worth the money.

Nose doppelbock, big sweet candy malts, toffee, caramel, light phenols and booze, lots of caramelized bananas, candy biscuit caramel toffee wheat, little creamy wheat,

Taste little candy, toffee, caramel, etc, mild nutty, hint fig, etc. Nice creamy wheat and biscuit, syrupy chewy notes, etc. Into nice caramel banana and mild clove like, some decent esters, light phenolic booze, candy apple notes, syrupy, etc. Finish is dry ish, little sticky and syrupy, little bitterness, more candy and toffee, biscuit etc.

Mouth slightly creamy nice carb, hint of booze, med to a bit thin bod.

Overall pretty nice, fairly German bock like bit not crazy great.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great a nice dark dark brown clearish hue with a thin head that left a light halo.

S - Aromas of banana, clove, sweeter malts. Rather straightforward, traditional.

T - Taste is nice caramel, banana, clove, sweeter malts. Light fruity esters. Very traditional and well, German.

M - Mouthfeel is nice, lightly carbonated, kind of sticky.

O - Overall this beer was alright, very cut and dry. Good example, true to the style.
