My wife bought me this as a present during a low time. This is appropriate, since the function of a bock beer was to sustain monks during Lenten fasts. This beer is hearty enough to sustain you, and dark enough to help you imbibe in moderation. Very malty and smoky, it pours with a short head and is intensely dark. As a lager type beer, it is clear, but its nonetheless nearly impossible to see through. The finish is a bit spicy with the high alcohol content.
Chewy and thick, this is a fine beer for Lententide. You only get four in a retail pack, but each one is a miniature feast of beer. Enjoy this beer, and prepare for the coming of spring.
