4/19/12 Fallenbock from Erie Brewing Company

So last night I decided to sit down with another beer I have received from a colleague of mine. By now I would hope your realizing the only real reason I like going to work is because it always is affording me the opportunity to sample the great beers my fellow workers are enjoying in their down time. The beer I sampled last night was Fallenbock from Erie Brewing Company. Fallenbock came in at a nice temperature of 42.1 degrees with a small 1" head with a rocky light brown appearance. The head lacing was excellent and the head dissipated quickly. The carbonation was soft with a flat clarity and a brown color. It had a roasted aroma and chocolate coffee taste with a moderate to light flavor and an average finish length. The mouth feel was dry with a back tongue hit and good body lacing. Overall I would give Fallenbock an A-. It was a solid beer with good flavor and it was dark which I do enjoy but after having so many different dark beer I guess I was just looking for a little bit more. Thanks fro reading and as always drink responsibly.
