RATINGS: 338   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.7/5   SEASONAL: Series   ABV: -
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.

Ungstrup (34219) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2008
Bottled. An amber beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet malty again with notes of over ripe fruits, as well as caramel and a light note of alcohol, that leaves a slight burn in the throat.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Bright clear amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Dry but vibrant dried fruits. Spice and caramel. Good tangy bourbon on the back end. Light semi dry finish. Nicely fruity.
