Draught@Camba Tap House 2015/3. Ideal pairing with their tasty house chili corn carne. Smooth, well-rounded, none too sticky sweet Steindoppelbock, showcasing caramel drop suave dark malts, bitter chocolate against a woody dryness and a flowery noble hop backdrop. Creamy, yet dry: must be those granite steins and attentive Kräusening process. Very elegant, mature composition.
