COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sublimely elegant this toffee toned bock is rich with a blend of Wisconsin and German barley malts. Over four months of resting in oak bourbon barrels gives this beer a wonderfully smooth body that will improve and mellow with age. Should you choose to enjoy this classic today, you can expect a treasure of vanilla, oak and carmel notes to be bolstered by hops from France, Slovenia and Germany. Wild Brett yeast sings in harmony to the tune of Bock. 20 degrees Plato OG makes this bourbon barrel a masterwork to remember.

yngwie (12636) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, copper-colored beer with a small, beige head. Malty, caramel nose, bready, with bourbon, dried fruits and faint notes of vanilla and alcohol. Caramel-sweet flavor with alcohol, some vanillla, and bourbon. Warming and full-bodied. The finish is long and warming with flavors of caramel and bourbon. The beer is a bit too evident on the bourbon I think, but as a sipper it’s quite lovely. (090605)
