After discovering a Brewmaster's* logbook from the late-1930s* with a reference to the original 1878 Genesee Bock Beer recipe, we were inspired to create this very traditional Double Bock - a take on our current Genny Bock spring seasonal. Wonderful malty flavors and aromas transform into deep raisin and chewy caramel characters creating a flavorful, smooth beer with a medium full mouthfeel. While the dark Munich malt provides subtle toasted biscuit notes, the malty profile of this beer is balanced by exceptionally clean bitterness from the traditional noble German Hallertau hops.
