Rating Peppercorn Rye Bock

Peppercorn Rye Bock

Appearance (0-3): Except for a slight chill haze, this poured up a crystal clear bronze color with ruby hightlights. There is a lingering offwhite head that laces up the sides of the glass. 3 points

Aroma/Bouquet (0-4): Smells of malt, some yeastiness, and a very slight pepper aroma. Of course, that may be because I know it's in there. . . 3 points

Taste: Hop Malt Balance (0-4): Very well balanced. There is some residual malt sweetness. This isn't an extremely hoppy beer, so the sweetness isn't too cloying. 3.5 points

Aftertaste (0-3): Finishes with a peppery flavor, probably from the rye, and accented by the pepper. Not a spicy peppery flavor, but a subtle background flavor. 3 points

Mouthfeel (0-3): Perfect mouthfeel. 3 points

Overall Impression (0-3): I think it's the best beer I've ever brewed. 3 points

Total: 18.5

I am sending this to Nationals.
