Ba Review #259
Served On: 2/27/2013
Glassware: Fluted Pilsner
Labeled ABV: -
Date/ Code: -

It's Bock season once again. This was a 12oz bottle from a mixed sixer I made at Ye Old Spirit Shop in Frederick, MD.

Look: Poured a very clear copper color with a cap of off-white foam that formed some sparse lacing. Carbonation level was medium with plenty of bubbles slowly rising upward.

Smell: The typical Bock notes of sweet bread and subtle dark fruits.

Taste: The beer was fairly light on the palate for a bock. First was some spicy biscuit that lead into some dark cherry with a smooth lager quality and then more biscuit. The finish was fairly clean with some lingering spice.

For a beer that's said to be over 7% ABV, this brew went down real smooth. Not one of the more robust Bock's out there, but defiantly held true to my expectations of the style.

341ml Bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for $3

Appearance - Slightly hazy brown colour with an average size beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 2 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, dark fruits, herbal notes, anise

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and red grapes. There are also some dates, herbal flavours, and some molasses. It ends with a malty dark fruit aftertaste.

Overall - Mouthfeel and appearance need work, but the taste is pretty solid. Not a world beater by any means, but a decent beer that is worth trying once.
