Urbock 23°

Posted: June 18, 2012 in Brauerei Schloss Eggenberg, Doppelbock, Reviews

All my cat has done tonight is meow at the screen door to go out. If you didn’t know better, you would think that he’s a dog that meows. Since I started taking him outside, he has started to wedge himself in between the glass door and the screen door to try to entice me to take him out on the leash. It’s quite adorable when he’s not constantly meowing. So, here’s another review that I did last week.

ABV: 9.6%

Style: Doppelbock

Trivia: According to austrianbeer.com, “Eggenberg Urbock beer tastes strong and full-flavoured. No wonder this beer creation is one of the most unique beer delicacies in Austria”

Random: I wonder how many people take their cats out on a leash.

This brew poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a slightly hazy, dark orange color with lots of active carbonation. The nose had a mineral quality to it with a floral sweetness which was a little unpleasant. The taste was even more unpleasant. It started with some malt, but then went into this sickly, artificial sweetness. It did improve slightly as it warmed. My thought was that this may have been old. The finish was long and sweet. The body was thick with lots of carbonation. The booze didn’t make a huge appearance, which was a little shocking to me. After a couple of sips, I just wasn’t into this beer at all. I was surprised because I thought that it would have been better.
