On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
I've been coveting this beer since its release. How exciting to find it on draft. Boom.
It's hard to discern the precise color of the beer due to the lowly lit atmosphere, but what I perceive is lavender to deep bluish purple body with a small, broken head. the aroma brings loads of blueberry despite the fact that this beer was released in 2012. No signs of age or degradation in the flavor either. Super jammy with lots of berry sweetness. Blueberry cobbler in a glass. 15.5%?!? Are you shitting me? You'll only notice that when you stand up. This beer is delicious and I could sip it all night. Expectations met. Fantastic.

Poured on tap at Churchkey into a snifter only 4 oz. allowed. Vintage 2012.
A big served soapy collar, with maybe a light tan colored appearance. Deep red garnet body color, with some nice clarity. Bit of a slick top and kind of watery, beer looks a little lifeless but has some great colors.
Woah. Holy fruity pebbles bouquet there! Literally slamming boo berry cereal in my face. Ripping blueberry fruit off of this, in fact I even smelled it when it was served before I picked it up. Huge and deep, lots of candy and chewy chewy taffy like senses. A bit overkill and enormous, nothing else to say or going on, incredibly dominant, and while sweet not horrifically.
Much continues through the palate as hinted on the nose. Much blueberry and rich iced vanilla and cream. Thick toffee malt backbone, but doesn't provide much malt based flavors that are dominated by this crushing fruit. Palate is slick and thick, with an interesting fizzy front. Hardly boozy until it's too late.
Overall it's just killer, but the beer is just too darn rich, and disappears into some obscure arena of taste that makes you forget what beer style this is really. Completely makes me forget this is an eisbock, but impressive as hell.
