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

3.39/5 rDev -13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearence: clear brown, thick off shore head with nice retention.
Smell: refined yeast, a bit of sweetness. Not unpleasant but lacking.
Taste: some deep malt notes and a bit of hops and hints of fruit but the taste was heavily overpowered by alchohal.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, full body, not dry. Very filling.
Overall: for me the flavors were lacking, do that the most discernable tadte was alchohal, which isnt too pleasant, I cant see myself buying this again and I had higher hopes from this brewery.
Serving type: can
