Draft: Poured a clear amber color Bock. Aroma of sweet caramelized malt with light cereal notes. Taste is also a mix of cereal and caramelized malt with quite a bit of residual sugar notes. Body is about average with OK carbonation. More sweet then I was expecting but not too bad overall.

A little too weak and watery for a bock

Serving: Can

Pours a ruddy copper that is practically clear. It has a little over a finger of beige soda-pop head that disappears almost immediately. Thick, rich, oppressive malty sweetness, caramel, leather, red fruits, herbal-minty-anise hops. Flavor is filled with dark caramel, earth sugar. It is all too much, muddled, watery-feeling and generally not enjoyable. Very thin body with astringent, cloying finish. Tolerable for the first two sips, too terrible to even finish after that.

Meilleur produit Archibald et de loin. Excellente rousse, goûteuse et bien équilibrée.
