All-Grain Peppercorn Rye Bock - Tasting Notes

Before I left Midland, Satan gave me a case of our Peppercorn Rye Bock that we brewed back in November. Tonight I sampled it. It poured up a hazy brown with a dense off white head, and some ruby highlights. The aroma is malty with some spice aromas. Starts off with a sweet malt flavor that finishes with pepper in the back of the throat and a strong carbonation tingle on my tongue.

It's over-carbonated, but good. I put the bottles in the fridge at lunch. When I came home from work, two bottles had exploded.

We're entering this in the Bluebonnet Brewoff and in Nationals. We'll get dinged for the carbonation, but it tastes really good.

I also got some of Satan's Old Colonial Porter and Brother Spuds Oatmeal Stout. More on those later.
