SCHLOSS EGGENBERG URBOCK

I've had a Schloss Eggenberg or two in the past, but the Urbock is their double bock and, lordy, is it muscular.

It's a mega strong bock at 9.6%, and it tastes exactly like a beer that's had a lot of alcohol added, like a lager with some cognac thrown in. A lot of cognac.

The odd thing is that the mouthfeel is a little watery, even if the alcohol in it is strong enough to burn the back of your throat.

If strong beers are your go, it's certainly not the worst, with a smooth initial taste, a hint of apple and a serious hit of malt, but then the sugary blast hits late on the tongue.

Not its fault. It's what all of these big beers do.

 

5/10
