Sierra Nevada Double DeBockEl

11 oz pour, Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, USA. $5.50. Surprised to see this here – bonus!
Golden body with excellent clarity. Surprisingly good carbonation considering ABV. Head is absent (possibly because of the crappy pour) but at this ABV unlikely to be very big anyway. Very light color for the style.
Nose is malty alcohol but even on warming it reveals little.
Certainly sugary sweet presence amongst the alcohol, but the beer manages to stay away from the viscous syrup that can plague this style and beers of this ABV. Pretty well balanced and a big treat to find a SN brew that isn’t simply a hop laden IPA clone of some description.
Nice, and a good change of pace for SN.
