Appearance: Brown/dark amber, slight light tan head remained, with a bit of lacing.
Nose: Very slight, increased in sweetness as the beer warmed.
Attack: Noticeable slightly roasted malt with a hint of caramel. Some carbonation.
Hops evident in the finish.
Overall: A solid bock. Of the seven beers we tasted at the Cincinnati Bockfest celebration, this was far and away the finest, exceeding even the festival’s home/flagship bock, necessitating a trip to the brewery to enjoy a whole pint!
A satisfying beer. I suspect a pairing with roasted meat or sausage should be excellent.
