330ml bottle - Thanks Kairi!
Lovely sweet malty aroma, classic dunkel or doppel bock. Deep red, small brief off-white head. Lovely bocky malty taste, rich and bready, some almond and even bitter almond once the lovely noble hops have kicked in. Finish drying and bitter, but some lovely dark caramel and malt. Very nice strong dark bock, and the hops have put a real kick behind it, this ain’t so sweet sticky boring thing at all. Yay - where’s the bottle? I’m finishing this!
