This triple helles bock is a very strong lager brewed with pilsner and caramel malt. It is hopped with German Perle for a pleasant bitterness and hoppy flavor. It is then dry hopped in the aging tank with Willamette hops. This blend of hops complement the sweetness and strong maltiness of the brew. It is fermented and aged for over 3 months so that the strong flavors of the malt blend well with the hops. The result is a very robust lager with a sweet malty flavor and aroma. 10% ABV.
