3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub, 9% ABV
Dark brown color with ruby shades, brownish creamy head. Moderate aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Good body structure, smooth mouthfeel, delicate roasted malt flavor an some coffee, light acidity from the roasted malt, correct bitterness, a hint of fruits and alcohol. Not as elegant as the single bock, but still a solid choice.
