Tonight will forever be the night I had my first Eisbock. THe labor that goes into a beer like this alone makes it one of the most special beers I have ever had the privilege of experiencing. It pours a beautiful syrupy ruby red- rusted gold color. It smells like chocolate- covered raspberry explosion. The taste is a fruit bomb like no other I have ever experienced. Extreme thickness and depth here. THe fruit is layered in a way that is so precious. An elite bottle of beer, and more of an experience than a beverage. Wow. So good its silly. Cherish every sip. Thank you StonedTrippin for putting this beer in my world. You are both a gentleman and a scholar.

4.73/5 rDev +7.5%

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into an enlarged wine glass. This is the 2012 version
Appearance: Pours a dark raspberry red and gives a half finger of reddish-tan head which fade almost immediately to nothing.
Smell: Huge aroma - when I poured it, the aroma filled up the room: BIG raspberry, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate dipped raspberries, bourbon, oak, vanilla, toffee. Big and complex.
Taste: Holy cow, huge flavor (I think my eyes are watering): Big delicious raspberry, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, bourbon. Quite sweet, but really delicious flavors. Jammy and syrupy raspberry take the lead with some bourbon-like qualities playing wonderfully beside.
Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation with a thick, sticky, syrupy body. Finishes a bit sweet. The alcohol is masked masterfully.
Overall: This is an awesome, huge raspberry beer. The raspberry is amazingly pronounced but wonderful. Other players include chocolate, vanilla, toffee, molasses. This is surprisingly drinkable. I'm definitely glad I drank the whole 375 mL bottle!
