2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle bb05/2015, Bierothek Bamberg and draught at source 12/2014. Translucent copper rust, minimal head. Weak sugary aromas of caramelised nuts, beetroot, reduced sherry, braised cabbage, whiff of paint thinner. Flavour picks up on tze strength of characteristic roast - and caramalts, adding chestnut bitterness, baked banana, toffee to the cow fodder mix. Cheaper sherry, ruby port in the finish with a lingering, woody hop bitterness. Stays typically Bock-monodimensional, with underwhelming payoff, especially in mouthfeel, for a 8,5% whopper.
