Poured from a 75ml bottle. A dark bock lager with a deliciously creamy head. No real lacing but that lovely head stays with you all the way.

Dark fruits and chocolate on the nose.

This is a really well balanced beer. Cardamon, coffee, dark chocolate, with a refreshing (grapefruit?) finish. Really smooth beer.

I couldn't drink too many but not because of the taste.

On tap at Max's tonight.

The beer pours a fairly dark brown color with good head retention and lacing. I get a considerable amount of brown sugar and chocolate on the nose, with maybe a hint of vanilla. Flavors replicate the nose pretty closely on the palate in this fairly sweet beer, but with a hint of alcohol burn in the finish. Otherwise, this is a fairly smooth beer, with a fairly rich, long finish. Mouthfeel is pretty full, though at the same time, it's just a bit thin as well. There's plenty of flavor in this beer, but at the same time, it's not as rich tasting as I was expecting. The alcohol burn in the finish detracts a bit from this beer's drinkability, as you might expect from an 11% abv. bock.

A nice enough beer, but I'm not sure how often I'd want to revisit this.
