Lot:BF14 Saxer "Dark Bock 6-pack" 1999 Stating Bid $19.31
This 10 year old dark lager has held up beautifully and has aged with amazing grace. It pours an auburn brown with a very thin head that fall to nothing. The aroma and flavor are big on candied cherries, caramel and chocolate; there is almost no hop bitterness at this point so the finish is lightly of toasty grains. I know this is more description than I give on most lots but being a 7.2% lager I had to try one to make sure it stood the test of time (10 years!!) and it has done so with flying colors.
