3.81/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 330mL swing-top bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown, nearly black hue with very little light let through. There is no head upon pouring, which I don't love. Color is great though.

Smell: rich, dark fruits: raisins, dates and black cherries are all in the mix. It kind of reminds me of a very strong kvass. I like it quite a lot, actually.

Taste: shazam, this is a strong beer. Those rich dark fruits are all present, but with a surprising element of tartness in the works. Actually, this kind of reminds me of a Flanders-style kriek -- something I quite like indeed. Maybe not a normal eisbock, but a flavor I can really get behind.

Mouthfeel: moderately thick body with virtually no carbonation. It's OK, but really lacks a nice creaminess.

Overall: this beer's flavor was a big surprise to me. Although it has its faults, especially regarding texture, I quite enjoyed it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Dark black with a hint of brown and a thin ring of bubbly head. Fades quickly.

S - Dark caramel malts, sour cherries and other dark fruits, acidity, oak, vanilla, and some booze.

T - Dark caramel malts, sour cherries, other dark fruits, acidity, some chocolate, oak, vanilla, and some booze.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, sour, and warming finish.

D - Interesting Eisbock. A bit off balanced and could use some carbonation.

330ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown almost black color forming no head. I've tried to put it let say, aggressively and then it formed some big bubbled brown head. Low retention and no lacings. BFM strong beers style

S: Sour and vinegar, slight sweet and very malty in the nose. Strong notes of caramel and roasted malts. A bit too fruity to the style. Light notes of alcohol

T: Slightly sweet and roasted malts upfront. Overall sour taste with a mild bitter hoppy end

M: Heavy and molasses body. Very low carbonation. Sour to bitter aftertaste

O: Good drinkability but, a difficult beer. Not a Bock beer for sure, not a Eisbock either. It's far too sour and too bitter to the style. However, I would recommend it to sour and aggressive beer lovers. From my favorite Swiss brewery!

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with no head. No lacing on the drink down either. Smell is sour and tart with some dark fruit and nail polish remover aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with a flat and acidic mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors.

4.04/5  rDev +11%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours with no head and an opaque, black body.

S - Thick, sweet balsamic vinegar with molasses and smoky caramel.

T - Caramel, molasses, and acetic acid up front. The balsamic vinegar character continues through the middle and finishes with a touch of chocolate, caramel, and some rum notes.

M - Medium body, no carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - This is different. It is like a cross between a eisbock and a Flemish red. It smells amazing, but lacks drinkability, you have to be prepared for weirdness with BFM.

S: dark fruit, dark chocolate, tart and sour cherry, oak and rum

T: dark fruit with mostly cherry, raisin and fig, oak, carbinet and hint of chocolate.

M: no carbonation, medium body.
