The color is a cloudy amber. Appearance is improved by a generous head and tenacious lacing. Smells of rich malt, cocoa, hops, caramel, vanilla. Also woodsy, spicy and citrusy. Very complex aromas. Taste is great. All of the scents are realized, with cocoa, spice and roasted malt coming forward. Rinses down with a hops bite and perfect carbonation. Finishes silky smooth. So many complexities in the flavor. This goes beyond any Maibock or Helles bock I've had, which makes me question this designation above. This is simply a rich, rewarding ale with an abundance of positive qualities. One of the best.
