The Craft BeerAdvent Calendar 2014 Day #21

Fürst Wallerstein Winter-Böckle – Fürst Wallerstein Brauhaus, 7.5% ABV – 330ml., (Wallerstein, Germany)

  • Style: Doppelbock
  • Taste: Flat brown sugar toasted barley malt alcoholic
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no

Visual: Pours muddy light brown with no head, very thin ringed micro retention, a few bubbles here and there.

Nose: sweet brown sugar malt, light roast (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: silky-flat, thicker viscosity

Mid-palate: (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel, toasted barley malt

Finish: alcohol tanginess, residual caramel, stealth hops, watery cola finish.

Summary: Decent thick malty flavour with hints of dark fruit, but the lack of carbonation and buttery mouthfeel killed it for me. Drinkable, though just an average experience.
