fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2009
bottle, 2008 vintage, pours a beautiful amber with a tall frothy light tan head. Cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins mixed with a peat note, very pleasant nose. Light bodied biscuit and toasted malt flavors that have a mild sweet and sour character that ends with a smoke flavor that is more on the mild side. A very drinkable bock with interesting flavors and a solid finish.
