Pandoras Bock ~ Breckenridge Brewery

Appearance: woodsy browns. Khaki head quickly fades into a collar. Swirls spotty then disappears totally, leaving only a thick collar in its wake.

Nose: dark fruits with stones in the back – almonds. Raisins and prunes – not to heavy or dense. Plums along the side – sweet with a touch of dryness thanks to the skins and stones. Moist breakfast breads. Hint of phenolics – banana bread with moist raisins – homemade. Clean caramelization – silky toffee and molasses.

Palate: medium weight and much drier than the nose implied. Melba crunch with some pumpernickel mixed in. Long dry finish – tannic and tart with plum skins and stones. A touch on the thin side. Faint bakers chocolate in the back. Banana raisin bread phenolics in the breath. Parching.

Final Thoughts: alright but not really anything to write home about. On the plus side, it features the clean cut personality which I know Breckenridge by. I’d gladly quaff again if offered but probably wouldn’t by if better options were offered.
