Gimme Shelter Bock

Enjoyed two small glasses of this at Max Lager’s yesterday.
Chill-hazed, dark brown appearance with hints of red clarity. Nice, well formed egg-shell head. Good retention and lace.
All the components of a solid bock are present with dominant (but balanced) malt backbone and a hint of hoppy bitterness. More like a double bock than a straight up bock to me.
I have no idea if the advertised ABV is correct, if it is it drinks WELL below that number and in that respect is a little dangerous!
All in all a very tasty and well balanced beer that I was impressed with. Add the charity component and you have a real winner IMO.
