Description 

This traditional German lager originated in the 14th-century and was lagered in caves through Winter to be consumed to celebrate the coming of Spring. The strong, sweet malt character is the hallmark of the style, complemented by a deep amber color. The malt character is rich yet balanced by a slight hop bitterness that allows the toasted grain and caramel flavors to shine.

Mystik Bock by Arches Brewing was judged as a Dunkles Bock, BJCP Category 6C.

True to type, this beer has a rich, Munich-type malt aroma. It becomes more distinctly toasty after awhile in the glass. It pours with a low, tan colored head and is reddish-amber in color. It is very clear. This beer has a sweet flavor impression, but is attenuated. It tastes malty, toasty, and slightly herbal from noble hop additions. This beer finishes malty but dry, smooth and crisp. Carbonation is much higher than the relatively small head suggests. Overall, Mystik Bock is a clean, traditional representation of a Dunkles Bock, but without the complexity or depth of the best examples.
