3.9/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a growler into an IPA glass

A: Pours chocolate brown with a red tint. Solid head with nice retention (at least in the IPA glass). Melts into a consistent thin foam that evenly covers the liquid throughout the course of the 20 min drink. Beautifully laces the side of the glass with every tilt.

S: Smells strongly of malt, dried figs and currants. Ethanol is detectable- more than I wish.

T: Tastes strongly of black figs and malt. Slightest hint of walnuts. Also great brightness at the beginning of the sip, acidic like, but not citrus- then quickly a bitter edge cuts in; Tannic almost - like the skins of pecans. Not off-putting though, - it really rounds out to a warm nutty flavor.

M: Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. I am a hop fiend, so for me I wish there was more going on in the mouthfeel - more stimulation upfront. But this beer shines more in the swallow.

O: Overall, certainly a fine double bock. Overall for the alcohol content, I wish there were stronger flavors going on. But a really nice beer and goes beautifully with food.

Serving type: growler

3.7/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours light and translucent with a nice head. Smells bready, bocky, and surprisingly alcoholic, even for its style.

Tastes quite intense. Aggressive bread starts thing off, followed by an strong bock-malt push that's equal parts astringent and zippy. Gets sweet again near the middle and ends dry with a long, lingering sourness on the back of your tongue.

Good, but it takes a few sips to get used to. I've had a few other d-bocks lately, but they've been the hyper-smooth big boys (Celebrator and Optimator), and I'm not used to one that's as rough around the edges as this.
