Urthel Vlaemse Bock

750 mL corked & caged, Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA.

Slightly cloudy, reddish Dubbel-like pour that starts with a good head but fades rather badly giving no lace.

Nose has plenty of Bock notes with rich alcohol and some depth – promising. Tastes are interesting because I was expecting a degree of acidity associated withe the brew but got NONE. Essentially this was a simple, Dopplebock/Dubbel crossover brew with Belgian yeast notes and German alcohol and malt character.

Good, solid brew, but for me I suspect this is one and done. There are better Belgian darks, better Bocks/Doppelbocks, better Dubbels and better Flemish brews out there. Not bad, but it straddles too many styles for me.
