Stoudts Mai Bock Blonde Double

Stoudts Mai Bock Blonde Double
Stoudts Mai Bock Blonde Double:

Rich and hearty, Stoudts Mai Bock has regal possibilities. The color alone takes your breath away -- such a deep golden hue that it's fit for a banquet table. The magical alcoholy kick will also take your breath away. But do not be afraid: The alcohol doesn't interfere with the flavor ... it becomes part of the flavor. In fact, this Mai Bock has some wine-like qualities. Check out the earthy sweetness which may remind you of honey. So maybe a meade thing is going on here. Either way, this beverage is definitely for high occasions.

For a vessel, I recommend a chalice or tulip glass; something with a stem. Sip this beauty. And get a clear glass, too. You simply must see the color. I keep coming back to that, but it's magical. Looks like the kind of elixir that, once quaffed, would allow you to see the future or travel to an alternate universe or something. Imagine yourself plunked down in the middle of a large, dark forest. The Fairy King offers you a goblet filled with a golden liquor. You take a sip and then...

Well, Stoudts is good stuff.

Has it always been called Blonde Double Mai Bock? For some reason I don't recall the Blonde being in there.

I'm not sure. I just saw it on the label and figured they meant it to be there. I've loved this brew for awhile but haven't been studying it that closely. Trust the people at Stoudts...they've got the goods.
