Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a classic German Dopple Bock. Like all of our beers it is made in strict accordance to the German Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of Brewing, which is water, malt, hops and yeast only! Lobotomy Bock is made from five types of specialty malted barley including Munich, black patent and other premium malts. And finished with two types of hops, Sterling and Perle added at the boil and again at the finish for the perfect flavor balance. Lobotomy Bock is brewed with pure artesian spring water from the historic Indian Wells Spring. Lobotomy Bock is lagered for several weeks then finished to exacting standards.

Extremely drinkable, I didn't expect the abv to be above 6%. Nice malty taste nothing overwhelming, medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel. Smells slightly alcoholy.

Poured into Indian Wells Brewing pint glass

A: Pours a very dark ruby brown with a moderate amount of mocha colored head that fades

S: A little coffee, some dark malt sweetness, a little dried fruit, plum maybe

T: Very light coffee, a little toffee/caramel roasted malt sweetness, some kinda mineral water like bite, a little booze as it warms

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation

O: Nothing super special to write home about, but not bad.
