KC Bier Co. Winterbock

What the brewers say

“Winterbock is a full-bodied, dark doppelbock-style lager with rich malt flavors of chocolate and caramel with hints of coffee, low bitterness, and a satisfying smooth finish. The flavor contributions of time-honored methods were recognized with a silver medal in the German-Style Doppelbock category at the 2018 World Beer Cup.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich and malt-forward with bread crust and toast. Moderately low caramel. Some perfumy and spicy hops aromas with a hint of mushroom. Simple but very clean.”

Flavor: “Rich and malt-forward in the flavor as well. Sweet. Clean lager fermentation characteristics. Noticeable alcoholic warmth that accentuates some dryness in the finish.”

Overall: “Rich, malt-focused, and very clean. Very drinkable. Very well brewed.”
