Amber Brewery Kozlak Bock Beer

The Amber Brewery is in Pomerania, Poland.

This 6.5% ABV beer pours medium dark-brown and ruby.  It is somewhat cloudy and translucent.  The aroma is powerful, and subtly sweet, with molasses, and a bit of vanilla. It is like a chewy molasses cookie. There is also a bit of barnyard in the aroma, that not unpleasant mix of fresh mud, straw, hay, grain and manure. The taste is strong and follows the aroma, sweet but not cloyingly so, with a lot of malt, molasses, and cookie.  There is just enough bitterness to prevent it being overly sweet.  If you like a kick you in the butt bock, this is one for you.
