This was a gift from a friend. I drank it in a pilsner glass. A date stamped on the label says 22.10.04. This would be a good one to put down for a while, I believe.
Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with a tan colored head which quickly falls to a ring around the glass. Carbonation appears slow.
Aroma is strong rum soaked raisins, molasses, dark caramel malts, and some alcohol. Smells like an eisbock, strong and sweet.
Flavor is smooth dark malts, molasses, dark rum, with some alcohol heat at the end. This beer is really yummy. Sweetness is high, and hop presence is very low. Aftertaste is dark rum and sweet.
Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and slightly oily slick on my tongue. Carbonation is low. The sensation of slickness lasts for a long time, but isn't bad in any way. It's kind of nice.
This beer is very delish; a great example of the style. It's so smooth, it just pours down my throat. Alcohol is very well hidden. I could drink this all day! (Or not!).

Pours a brilliant deep brown with garnet highlights and a frothy cream head that dissipates to minimal foam.
Molasses, treacle, dates, raisins, figs, and prunes form the aroma.
Flavor follows suit, with dark fruit balancing against toasted malt and a lightly bitter, tar finish. The balance is definitely sweet, but that dry finish prevents it from being cloying.
Body is full, with minimal carbonation. Alcohol warmth is surprisingly moderate.
The melanoidin character and deep esters really stand out and balance each other well.
