142. Rock Art Brewery Mountain Holidays in Vermont Bock Lager
This was my first beer from Rock Art so I really had no idea what to expect from them. I was slightly disappointed with the pour as there was no head at all however there was a fair amount of carbonation so I don’t think the beer was flat. Color is a very dark red almost brown but not quite. Aroma is slightly sweet with a fair amount of caramel malt. Taste was smooth and very easy to drink with a lot of carbonation – not excessive but approaching it. Almost no bitterness and not really what I think of when I drink a bock. Overall not a bad beer but I am sure other offerings from Rock Art will be better than this one. Bottle art is nice and will add to my collection of bombers.
Pros: Great color
Cons: Minimal head, lots of carbonation, thin
Alcohol Content: ?? ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??
