In this winter beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Atwater Brewery. I really do not know why I picked up their Winterbock. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Detroit craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this brew.
It has a clear dark copper color with an off white color head. The smell has a sweet malty notes. The taste is a sweet malty notes. The aftertaste is a sweet dry malty finish. It is kind of drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
This malty, sweet, caramel colored German bock beer is brewed with imported malt and hops. It’s uncommon smoothness and impeccable taste make it the perfect companion on a cold night.

Closing, I pretty much done with this brewery. I do not know why I keep coming back to this craft brewery. I always find myself buying or ordering one of their beers. I am officially done. This beer is full of alcohol. It is a poor and bad version of a German bock. They did a really bad job on this brew. I just feel their is no balance. It is like they dumped a ton of sugar to jack up the alcohol. This beer is missing creative thought and passion towards this beer style and brewing beer. I am not really a fan. I do not recommend you trying this beer. Do NOT go there! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
