On tap at Granite State on tap.
Deep brown with a smallish quickly dissipating off white head. Huge bready caramel raisin dried fruity maltiness with just a touch of alcohol and earthy hop to balance. Nice sipper that I need to spend a little more time getting to know.

Quite a good double bock.
Dark brown with a tan head
Smell has a lot booziness to it to go with a sweet malty smell.
No alcohol burn as expected from the smell just a whole lot of caramel sweetness.
Overall a very good double bock but a bit on the sweet side.

the malt bomb you would expect in this style from this brewer, but a well done take on the style, bigger than most, authentically german, and memorably different at the same time. its so dense in grain, toffee and burning sugar in a fry pan. with a lager yeast that cant eat the sweet. there is a european nature to the malt, and a strong alcohol presence in there two. i like its weight, its great for the fall, but its a beer that i just cant drink real much of because of how big it is with all its sticky sweetness. seems to me like an awesome cooking beer, cheesy beer muffins, bread pudding, even a pot of chili would benefit from a brew like this. i appreciate it but i dont love it. cool that a brewery this big still does stuff like this though, this is definitely not rookie beer.
