Is there a spring in Fort Collins? Pours a rich dark brown color with red hues in the corner and when held to the light. Much darker then spring bocks that Iâ€™m familiar with. The beer is filtered with limited head and not much to lacing.
The aroma is bigger then most beers or even Maibocks that Iâ€™m familiar with. The smell is rich in malt. Noticeable characteristics in German malt, especially in Munich. A stronger caramel chocolate tinge with hazelnut is perceived.
The taste has a breadiness quality to it. Very noticeable at the top with a brown sugar taste. Almost like a cake flavor to it. A strong malt characteristic with ample Munich, but not as sweet. There also is a good flavoring from spice, more of the darker flavors, and a conspicuous fig characteristic. The malt itself is deep and rich. In the background there is a light citrus, like a pineapple, which becomes more noticeable as it warms. There is a chalky aftertaste as well.
The body is rich and medium to full body. The carbonation is light but and works for the stronger amount of malt. Overall this is a dark Miabock with a stronger malt characteristic but a good unique flavor.
