Notes/Commercial Description:
My interpretation of an Irish stout, with an extra portion of choice barley, special and aromatic malts to give the beer its distinctive full-bodied flavor.

A robust beer of deep, dark color with an aroma of roasted malt combined with the taste of sweet caramel, delicious dark chocolate notes and a hint of wild berries.

I saw a bottle of this (and the other Maisel & Friends offerings) in a small shop in Rothenburg on 30SEP13. I snapped it up, the 0.75l bottle costing me €4.95, and quaffed it that same eve at my Gasthaus. Though called a Bock, the brewer notes that this is his interpretation of an Irish stout.

It poured a deep, clear chestnut hue, with a little ruby at the edges. Head was mocha, fine and creamy, with good stick. Aroma was of roasted malts and choco - mmmm! It was smooth going down, and medium in body, though I thought it could be thicker.

Had some mild caramel, but lots of roasty notes. Also present was a bit of choco and some powdery, cocoa-like flavors. Subtle hints of dark fruit lurked in the background also. A tad bitter, I could have used a smidge more sweetness. Not bad, all in all, though. Zum Wohl!!
