jimbonga (144) - - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle, 5.2%. Dark amber. Caramel and a bit of burnt malt in the nose. (Rye) bread, caramel and a bit of liquorice to taste. Nice lingering finish. Thought I’d bought the bock and slightly disappointed to find I hadn’t (label does mention bock so not obvious if you only look quick).

Aug. ’15. A 0.5 l bottle that poured a dark reddish brown body with medium sized head, colored accordingly. Fine lightly roasted aroma. Nuts, cocoa, caramel, dark fruits. Lightly roasted, bittersweet flavor, too. Pleasant amount of coffee, caramel, nuts. Complex for the style. Medium body with longer dark malt finish with a weird soapy off note. Extremely well balanced and quite a pleasant dunkel.
