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
