Fort Collins "Maibock"
Fort Collins Brewery - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Maibock (ABV 6.4%) (IBU 34)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear medium brown with a reddish hue and an average (1-2 finger) light tan frothy head that slowly receded, down to a puddled film with a medium collar and had good sticky lacing.

The aroma was of sweet bread malts and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark fruit (raisons) and a healthy nutty scent.

The taste was extremely malty with a bold toffee sweetness along with a hint of dark fruit from the get go, progressing slightly with a mild bitterness and a smooth bitter nutty ending. The flavor was average in duration with the nutty bitter taste left behind to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with a dry, oily texture and a carbonation that was a little more than mild in intensity.

Overall this was a malty sweet brew with a bold taste of toffee and a nice nutty ending...
