Missing Elf Double Bock
Missing Elf is a strong ass double bock built by the good people at Brewery Rinkuškiai. It comes from Rinkuškiai, Lithuania and, according to the label, is "...the most heating and famous beer of Beer Country!" It's sold in a sorta goofy pint bottle and contains 9.5%. It pours a light copper colour and is very clear. It has moderate carbonation anda very thin cap of white head. It has a pleasant metallic scent that is also a bit grainy and malty. Flavourwise, this beer is extremely coppery and all kinds of malty. It has an undeniable alcoholic warmth and has a metallic aftertaste. Truth be told, its not really my favourite brew. It's a bit too malty and too doughy. However, it's certainly got some merit--it's a strong, punchy and warm ale. Probably worth sampling, particularly on a cold day. Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
