I stopped by the brewery yesterday and got myself a growler of this dunkel turned bock. The body shimmers from a garnet hue at the foot of my pilsner glass to a glowing mahogany at the top. There's a nice clarity to the body that deepens the color. A bone white head rose to a finger on the pour before slowly fading to a solid cap with both chuck and strand lacing left in its wake. This beer is a beauty in a pilsner glass.
This dunkel/bock has a crisp snappy aroma of bittersweet chocolate, lightly roasted grains, and plump raisins in that order of intensity. The clean graininess sits atop a base of freshly baked bread that adds a touch of spice like pumpernickel. I get pulled in and begin to salivate each time I stick my nose in this glass.
Each drink brings all dunkel goodness the nose suggested. The chocolate kicks things off and is the most noticeable accompaniment with the mild roastiness and raisins bringing up the rear. The breadiness isn't as spicy and snaps across my tongue. This beer is super clean with a touch of alcohol on the swallow. The flavor doesn't have a huge complexity but does its job perfectly.
The body is moderate with a livelier than expected carbonation that keeps things moving. The flavors are so crisp and clean it's a joy to drink. There's minor lingering chocolate on the surprisingly dry finish.
Munich Winterbock is scary easy to drink. Each drink begs for another until the beers gone and I'm left wondering where it all went. The dry finish adds to the drinkability.
I have here yet another good beer from the guys at Flossmoor. I don't usually go for the style that often but now that I drink this I wonder why. I'm sharing this growler and it's going fast. How do you two constantly brew these awesome beers?
