Trust the Midas Touch. Pours a lighter amber color with good clarity. The head was ok with tight white bubbles. It quickly dissipates to the edge of the glass but never really goes away. The smell has a noticeable malty aroma. Some caramel but mostly malty center. Some phenols and a tad yeasty notes but a much lighter presence.
The taste has a big malt presence. A good dexterous taste with a bready flavor to it. Caramel flavors and a touch of toasty notes are picked up on the background. Very little to not hop taste with a somewhat sugary taste, similar to juice in a way. Some phenolic tastes but is heightened with no bitterness.
The body is big and makes this beer unique. Almost like a dopplebock without the yeasty notes. I think this is as good as an example of a malt bomb as there is.
