What the brewer says

“Win­ter­bock is a full-bod­ied, dark dop­pel­bock-style lager with rich malt fla­vors of cho­co­late and caramel with hints of cof­fee, low bit­ter­ness, and a sat­is­fy­ing smooth fin­ish. The fla­vor con­tri­bu­tions of time-hon­ored meth­ods were rec­og­nized with a sil­ver medal in the Ger­man-style Dop­pel­bock cat­e­gory at the 2018 World Beer Cup.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich and malt-for­ward with bread crust and toast. Mod­er­ately low caramel. Some per­fumy and spicy hops aro­mas with a hint of mushroom. Sim­ple but very clean.” Fla­vor: “Rich and malt-for­ward in the fla­vor as well. Sweet. Clean lager fer­men­ta­tion char­ac­ter­is­tics. No­tice­able al­co­holic warmth that ac­cen­tu­ates some dry­ness in the fin­ish.” Over­all: “Rich, malt-fo­cused, and very clean. Very drink­able. Very well brewed.”
