Before-After Triple Bock is an impressive bock from Rinkuškiai Aluas Darykla in Lithuania. Don’t ask me what that means or how to pronounce it, but I’m pretty sure that it’s a brewery and Rinkuškiai is the name of the brand. It has a rich, sweet malt aroma with hints of floral, cinnamon, and ginger. It tastes even sweeter than I was expecting. I get brown sugar, ginger, orange peel, spice, caramel, and a little oak. The sweet flavor masks the high 12% ABV. This beer is practically a wine. It also has a really cool label with an optical illusion. There’s a picture of a pretty girl’s face, and she turns into an old lady when you turn it upside down. It’s fitting because this triple bock will definitely give you beer goggles if you have more than one. Hopefully you’re not drinking it at your family reunion.
