Thanks for purchasing another offering in our Big Mo' Series. Our Rye Bock is a pleasant departure from traditional bocks and rye beers. The use of malted rye in beer finds its origins in Bavaria. We here at Left Hand use a bottom fermenting lager yeast, paired with a hop profile of classic German bocks. Our Rye Bock gets a wonderful tangy spiciness from the rye, accompanied by dried cherry aromas in the nose. It is a beer of great flavor with a long, savory finish. The image of a goat has traditionally been the symbol of bock beers. It was customary to feed goats rye to make them potent in the spring. We love the marriage of these two ideas. Will our Rye Bock exacerbate your spring fever? Maybe not, but trying out old folklores never tasted so good.

    Pours out in a hazy brownish copper colour with a roch tan coloured foam. Malty aroma of milky chocolate, nuts, dark bread, neutral yeast with hints of dark syrup. medium to full-bodied with notes of dark bread, cereals, milky chocolate and neutral yeast. Smooth but a bit sticky mouthfeel. Malty and slightly warming finish of caramel, syrup, dark bread, almonds and spices.

    One of the brews from "The Big Mo'" Series we have here and I look forward to this brew. Aroma is sweet with tons of malty goodness with ripened dark fruits with some raisin and maybe brown sugar on the nose as well as some cherries as well as some caramel covered chocolate with some hints of rye. Appearance is a tawny to flat, dark-brown in color with a very well-carbonated head on top that is light-tan in color and actually overflowed the glass a bit after being poured perfectly and looks amazing in my snifter I chose for the venture. Mouthfeel full-bodied and very robust with tons of rye malt complexity as well as yeasty balance with a palate that is well-rounded and very smooth and well-coating and is almost silky to some extent. Flavor is of dark malts as well as some musty hoppiness and yeast with some rye malt being exposed as well as some earthy plum notes as well as raisins and some cherry with an aftertaste that is malty sweet and smooth with a finish that is slightly dry-like and a bit bitter on the backend with maybe some molasses. Overall, this brew has lined up to be very malty, maybe in excess and malt forward and the rye malt makes this brew very hardy and chewy but I did detect some astringency that was a bit bothersome but, nonetheless, a good one from Left Hand...Recommended.
