Review: Tree & Beau's Collaboration - Leap Beer Smoked Bock
Appearance: Dark caramel with a ruby red hue. Thick yellow/beige head that slowly diminishes yet leaves a good deal of foamy residue on the glassware.
Aroma: Smoky! I love smoky beers so it's always a treat when I find one. Rich notes of smoked barley malt, a hint of bonfire, caramel and a hint of dark fruit.
Taste: First and foremost, it's smoky but not overwhelmingly like many out there. The smoke hits the palate at first, but diminishes quite quickly. Other flavours I'm noticing include caramel, a bit of a graininess from the barley and hint of dark fruits (plum)? So for the most part, similar to what the aroma had.
Overall Thoughts: Solid bock with a nice smoky profile that's not overpowering. Very easy to drink and I wish my asshole roommate didn't steal my other bottle because I'd so go for another bottle right now.
