Brown with the ability for light to shine through easily. Reasonably clear. Small head with only a couple of specks for lace.

Sweet with a strong chocolate element to the nose. A bit like powdered cocoa.

Cocoa with a bit of sourness. Rich body but with an equally high level of carbonation. This reminds me of a light porter.

Color is a clear dark cherry wood. With more the 2 fingers of head in a tall stange glass.
Smells like a typical bock with really strong roasted malts. There is a sort of hop aroma as well.
Tastes of dark fruits and roasted malts are strong. Slight hints pf caramel bring out some sweetness.
It goes down smooth with some carbonation that is just right for this beer.

Overall, being a huge fan of The Tap Brewing Company, this is another solid beer from them. Living a few blocks away doesn't hurt either.

Bukowski's Boston, on tap

A - pours a clear, dark mahogany with 2 fingers oh head in pint glass.

S - Big dark toast/roast with a hint of pine.

T - complex! Really toasty then espresso and dried dark fruits with a surprisingly foppish finish.

MF - Very good body, light on the tongue with little, if any burn.

OA - hey! I'm local! I love what Tap/Haverhill does and consider Jon one of the most underappreciated and unknown brewmasters. This is another example of his creativity and love of the craft. Starting with a trad German Bock he has spun it his own way. Very nice offering!
