4.13/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance- Poured a one finger head with a nice consistant light coffee colored body.

Smell- Toffee, malt candiesand an evening hop balance.

Taste- Slightly roasted malts, with a watery mocha cappuchino thickness. Alcohol flavor is covered up nicely.

Mouthfeel- Roasty with a nice vanilla palate. Lovely sweetness.

Drinkability- ood for the alcohol content considering how much of this 64oz growler I drank on my own in one day.

Serving type: growler

3/5  rDev -16%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a cervoise at the Palatine brewpub.

The final beer of my visit today shall be a nice d-bock. It pours a clear sunrise amber topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises bready caramel, flowers, and perfume-y candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bready and fruity aftertaste that just doesn't endear this thing to me at all. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a pretty weak excuse for a d-bock, a particular disappointment considering the Emmett's crew's usual aptitude for German styles.

Serving type: on-tap
