Style: High gravity bock.
Appearance: Chestnut with a short-lived foamy head.
Nose: Malt, prunes, dark toast.
On the palate: Medium bodied. Bitter with just a bit of sweetness and malt. Like the burnt drippings of off a mixed berry pie.
Finish: Fruitier, but fades into warm toastiness.
Parting words: Bock is one of my favorite styles of beer. This is a decent example and a decent beer. Still, I would have appreciated a little less bitterness, a little more sweetness and a lower price. Atwater Winterbock is mildly recommended.
