Rich Amber Bock brewed with Vienna and Munich malts. Pure lager yeast ferments this beer to create a deep malty character with a hint of caramel toffee aroma. Robust noble hops and 7.5% abv. intertwine the malty and toasty flavors. Historically, this beer is brewed once a year to celebrate the “Stark Bierzeit” (strong beer season) and to welcome the warming Spring Sunshine.

Draft. Pours murky brown/orange with small amount of head. Aroma of wheat, hay, bread dough, slight citrus. Some nice roasted, light brown sugar malt character. Thicker than I would have thought...some well developed deep flavors at play. Like a brown ale with more amps...

A seasonal featured on draft at the Morris Tap & Grill in Randolph, NJ. This was my first sample from this brewer and I was impressed. The flavor was distinctive and of craft quality. I look forward to more selections from this brewer.
