A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris Os Pre GBBF Tasting
Decent dark amber colour with a surprisingly white head. A straight forward fruity bock with a lot of caramel. Nice burnt toast notes and a fiarly lengthy bitter finish. Not bad.

Bottle at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. Clear attractive amber colour. Lasting something, not sure what my notes say. Toasty aroma. It’s a little thin in mouth. It’s fine, if a little dull maybe.

Thanks to kappeldave123 for this bottle at Zinisters tasting. Clear brown with no head. Malty, very sweet nose. Taste is sweet, sticky and bit alcoholic. Not a bad beer for a tasting but I could not drink an entire bottle of this.
