Two Roads Henry’s Farm Double Bock

Posted: July 18, 2015 in Doppelbock, Reviews, Two Roads Brewing Company

This was another pickup from Half Time. I heard a rumor that Two Roads will be coming to Jersey in a few months, which will be exciting. I really enjoy a lot of their beers and it would be nice to stock them in the fridge.

ABV: 7.8%

Style: Dopplebock

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Made in honor of our CEO’s great-grandfather Henry, who made a dopplelbock every year on his South Dakota farm to warrant the coming of spring. A classic strong German lager with a robust body and a deep ruby red color. Two Roads’ recipe uses a generous amount of toasted German and North American barley that is lightly balanced with floral hops.

Random: I need a nap.

This beer poured with a one finger, cream-colored head that dissipated slowly. It didn’t leave a lot of lacing on the glass, but a slightly crown was present. The body was a clear mahogany color with moderate carbonation. The nose was very sweet with toffee and caramel malts. It also had some dark fruit as well. The taste also had caramel and toffee, but it had a touch of bitterness as the end of the sip. Biscuit came through after a few sips and dry alcohol as well. The body was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. It had a long, sweet finish with sweet caramel. This was a nice beer, but it was just missing something for me and was relatively cheap for a bomber at $6.99 ($.32 per ounce). It just didn’t do it for me.
