Blondibock was first brewed as Bluesapalooza Blonde Bock in the summer of 2011, and was so popular that we brought her back in 2012.

Brewed as a German-style Blonde Bock in March of this year, she was racked into Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels after two weeks in the fermentation vessels. There, this beer matured for three months picking up much of her color and flavor from the oak barrels.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Richard! Hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, some bourbon, vanilla and oak, some slight spicy notes into a bit of hay. Taste was a mix of sweet vanilla, some oak, bourbon into a bit of grass, spice, some slight bread into a bit of earth, finishing fairly sweet.

Bottle at home. Pours clear orange with a small and rapidly dissipating, fizzy white head. Aroma is honey malt, sweet oak and bourbon, near caramelized sweetness, vanilla, and pears. Flavor is sweet and rich malt, sweet vanilla and bourbon with oak notes, somewhat alcoholic pepperiness and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Fantastic unique beer. Pours a fairly innocuous cloudy orange/yellow with a thin white head. However, you start to realize this is something special when you smell. Lots of vanilla and whisky that complement each other almost perfectly. Some oak in the smell as well. Taste is very heavy whisky, but the vanilla mellows it out to a nice balance. Taste starts creamy and ends crisp, with some more pine and oak, a bit of citrus on the backend, and a whisky aftertaste. Had on tap at Mellow Fellow in Tahoe.

The heaven hill bourbon makes this blonde bock absolutely friggin delicious. Vanilla, oak, toasted coconut. One of the best mammoth brews I’ve had. Looking for it again..."

A strong vanilla whiskey aroma. This is really quite good. Tons of vanilla and whiskey flavors, but the alcohol is just a little too evident.

Flaske: Taster og helt klart den bedste øl fra Mammoth. Super overrasket over hvor godt fadlagringen har fungeret. Helt fantastisk duft af bourbon ovenpå en lysorange diset øl. Smagen er frisk med en solid gang boubon. Stadig superfrisk. Lækker øl.

2013/2014 from a bomber. This is an usual brew - little bit like the Widmer Brrrbon, but with a much smoother palate and finish. A bit odd to get used to (kind of like a sour for me), but then I started to warm up (literally) to it and appreciate it for what it is. Nice bourbon aroma, good body and finish. Not a chugger or a warm day ale, but good in smaller amounts.

Danish tasting session
Hazy golden color with small head. Strong aroma of bourbon, mellow. Sweetish flavor, malt, cereals, with low bitterness, but a nice Bourbon character.
More barrel than beer, it may become cloying in big quantities.
