A dark Bock is a beer specialty that, with its strong alcohol content, can cloud your senses and create high spirits even on the coldest, most uncomfortable and rainiest of all gray November days with intensive aromas, depth and complex taste nuances. The Franconian brewers are masters of this style and pride themselves on their tasty bock beers in all shades of mahogany and chestnut.
One of the particularly popular variants of the dark goat is the example from Hummel. The Merkendorf brewery has a full-bodied strong beer in its range that warms body and soul with a full 7.5% alcohol content. The dark beer specialty is brewed between October and January, but tastes good all year round and, thanks to its skilful variety of aromas, can also be enjoyed at other times of the year.
Depending on the incidence of light, the strong bock presents itself in a color between dark chestnut brown and shimmering reddish mahogany in the glass. A decent crown of fine-pored, lightly tinted foam crowns the beer and at the same time exudes an enticing aroma of roasted malt, roasted almonds and caramel. The initial sip follows the olfactory first impression and settles like a warming blanket with soul-soothing aromas of creamy toffee, roasted malt, raisins, toasted rye bread and subtle hints of cocoa. A hint of hops dominates the finish and elegantly rounds off the enjoyment of the beer.
