Moravius (451) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2014
Bamberger Bierwochenende, Bier Nr. 7. Vom Faß im Spezialkeller, Bamberg. - Tiefstes Rotbraun, rasch schwindender beigefarbener Schaum. In der Nase karamellige Süße, Blockmalz und ein Hauch von Rauch (Schwarzwälder Schinken). Im Antrunk Rosinensüße und Blockmalz; schwer aber nicht dick. Dezente Rauchnote; leichte dunkle Frucht. Mild rezent. Für ein Bockbier enorm leicht und süffig. Abgang fein fruchtig mit ganz leichter Zitrusnote, leicht grasig-pfeffriger Hopfen. - Süßes Blockmalz, dezenter Rauch, fruchtige Note und kühlender Hopfen in perfekter Harmonie. Vorzüglich!

Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, tap at Spezial Bamberg, 25/01/14. Dark chestnut brown with a moderate beige covering that dissipates but retains. Nose is smoked malt, toffee, light rubber, smoked ham. Taste comprises a big malt load, toffee, smokey twang but not huge, brown sugar, brown bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, malt lead closure. Decent, not a huge amount of depth for the ABV but subtle smoke as per the other Spezial beers.
