50cl bottle poured into a Paulaner Seidel

BBE 27 June 2011

A- Cloudy dark amber body with a 3 finger soapy head that reduces to nothing quickly. No lacing.

S- Toasted and caramel malts, a touch of honey and wholemeal breads, some doughy bread

T- Toffeeish malts up front with toasted malts giving balance in the finish. Creamy sweetness of milk chocolate comes through.

M- Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel, clean lager finish.Very smooth

D- Fantastic malt flavours on the palate. Body and richness of a bock with a touch of yeastiness of a unfiltered kellerbier. No suggestion of abv at all. Could drink over and over, shame it just looks completely unappealing. Perhaps due to age im not sure, but that certainly didnt hurt the aroma and flavour.

500 ml bottle, BB reads 27. June 2011, into tulip. Prior to opening the bottle was held upside down and gently shaked to evenly distribute the yeast into the suspension. Pours cloudy, deep amber body with reddish hue, overlain by moderate, beige head that completely dissipates. According to the brewer the malts that have been used in this one are Munich, Cara and Roasted malt and that is clearly reflected in the aroma profile with rich maltiness, toast-like melanoidins and caramel with a hint of yeasty spiciness. The flavor is predominant malty sweetness with a fair amount of intense toasty overtones, mild roastiness, yeast and some hoppy bitterness towards the finish. Medium to full bodied with delicate carbonation. In short: a full bodied malty, caramellish-toasty brew with a yeasty touch.
Despite the beer's name contains both "Bock" and "Zwickel" (in that order) placing it among Bocks would be erroneous and should be classified as Zwickel: lacking clarity of a Bock seems to be unfiltered and the brewer recommends to raise the yeast before pouring it in order to enhance the natural cloudy appearance of the beer, a typical Zwickel characteristic.
