3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium to bigger sized, vast and slow changing/disappearing ashy light brown light tan colored head on top of an almost clear darker ruby colored beer.
Smell toasted/roasted barleys, raisins, caramel, toffee, hint of liquorice wood, light light vinous note, some nuts, prunes, cherries, creamy, fruit liquor. Fine smelling beer.
Taste toasted barley malts, caramel, toffee, prunes, hint of tobacco, toasted autumnal leaves, syrupy iron, creamy, bitter, toasted grass, spicy, earthy. Very well balanced and tasty.
After a while, luckily, the iron is gone!
Aftertaste is a mix of toasted autumnal herbs, toasted leaves, bitters, some spices, earth and malty nuts.
Low carbo, soft silky mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Bit too much iron in the beginning, but furtherwise this is a fine bock beer!
