Tap at Old Meck. Fairly clear coppery amber pour. Just a thin layer of white. Laced a very tiny bit.
Aroma, bready, lager yeasty. Not the most pungent thing. Faintest woody vanilla.
Taste, Some bready low sugar fruitcake. Malty caramel. Quickly barrel notes of vanilla and oak come in. Barrel nicely accents and adds a bit more sweetness than the original. Very under control.
Just about creamy, medium bodied. Carbonation is just barely hanging in there though. Only an acceptable faint warming to hint at the abv.
To me the Yule Bock was their best bigger beer until some of the reserve series things. This worked pretty well with the barrel, but it still feels like their strength lies in the standard interpretations for now.
Serving type: on-tap
