Brother Benedict’s Bock, Bright dark brown with white 2” lightly tan tinted foam collar. There is a little caramel and roast malt in the flavor and aroma. This is drinkable but the body is a little thin.

While pleasant, it wasn't a stand out. Just mainly a taste of malt and nothing else. Had an off aftertaste a little bit. Overall not bad though.
