Hell’s Bock

Big thanks go out to brad007 for the chance to try this one. 22oz bomber into the Harpoon IPA glass.
Slight chill haze on the light copper pour with a great looking high head and some minimal lace. Head fades quickly to leave some film on the surface.
Nose is simply, malty and sweet with some reserved fruit tones in the background. Pretty much the same in the tastes with an additional twang of grapefruit and alcohol on the back end. As the beer warms it definitely gets increasingly hoppy.
Smooth and creamy in the mouth with some well defined, silky carbonation.
Very solid example of the style and an infinitely better beer than Dead Guy IMO. Very satisfying and enjoyable.
