This is a vast, sweet, boozy brew that is like some friendly giant. Handsome orangey golden color in the Ommegang chalice with plenty of foam. The mouthfeel is a little on the unctuous side with adequate spritziness. Watery booze smell with some gardenias and vanilla.

Hot with alcohol but the bourbon flavor is delicious. Warm and toasty with a serious sweet malty undertone. The hops, in keeping with the sort-of Bock style, are fairly shy, but there is a twang of bitterness in the finish. I suppose it's a surprise that the often-sugary golden Bock style works as well as it does for this whiskeyfied cookie dough.

Crazy stuff that is quite sippable and has a pleasing woody barrel taste. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Shop in downtown San Diego.

22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Huge thanks to ILOVESTOUTS.

A - Pours a slightly hazy dark orange/amber body. Two fingers of bone white foam settle into a thin cap with some patchy lacing. Decent retention.

S - If I didn't know any better I'd say this was a tamer Backwoods Bastard. Nose starts off initially with rich toffee malts followed by a wave of smooth bourbon notes. Butterscotch, vanilla, oak, and warming alcohol. Finishes sweet and fruity with a touch of spice, almost like apples or calvados. Really great aroma.

T - Smooth toffee malt leads right into the bourbon notes. Very strong on the butterscotch and vanilla with some light spice and fruit. The alcohol tends to overwhelm things and muddle the aftertaste.

M - Medium to light bodied with a somewhat high carbonation. Drinkability remains quite high.

O - Not very "bock like" to be honest. It is pretty damn tasty with a wonderfully smooth and balanced bourbon presence. Very close to scotch ale territory in terms of flavors and aromas though. I quite enjoyed this one.

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at drewone's tasting.

This beer is now know as Blondibock per the bottle.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wood, and bourbon. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick and a woody finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that has a better bourbon presence in the taste over the smell.
