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). JorgeLee (2278) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
