Caramel colored pour with a thick, off white head. Light aroma carries toasty malt to the nose. The toasty sweet malt continues through the flavor with the first sip. Hops are subdued but balanced - the hop bitterness is firm. Spices don't show up till the end - it finishes with light spicing of citrus and a faint warmth from cinnamon. Medium thin body. Finishes with light malt sweetness paired against oily hop bitterness.
Spices are subdued, toasted malt flavor dominates. Lighter bodied than I would expect from a bock but the firm hop bitterness and medium-thin body make this easy drinking and you could easily reach for another one.
