Einbecker Ur-Bock Dunkel

The Einbecker Brauhaus is in Einbeck, Germany.

This 6.5% ABV is a "dunkel" or "dark" bock, a higher alcohol style of German beer.  The beer pours an orangish and dark copper brown, with almost a hint of ruby.  There is a short head of light brown foam.  The aroma is very malty, sweet potato and a touch of caramel.  The taste is also very malty, malted grain, sweet potato, caramel, with a nice counterbalancing bitterness and dryness on the finish.  The aftertaste is malty and grain.  This is a full-flavored, but well-balanced bock.  Too many of them veer towards overly sweet for my taste, but not this one.
