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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Date: 5/13/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: Brown in color and tan in carbonation this beer pours with a thumb width head that quickly (And I do mean quickly) evaporates. We are left with a light carbonation ring that slightly hides the browning edges of the beer.
Aroma: A dark cherry syrup fruit flavor kicks us off and fruity scents of plums and even raspberries can be found in the background. An alcohol nose follows that resembles light rum. Malts are prominent in the aroma as well.
Flavor: The fruit flavors move from a syrupy aroma to a licorice flavor as the cherry is still at the front. The malt is toasted and gives the beer a nice body. The beer finishes with a light alcohol flavor that is deceptive considering the 9.2% ABV.
Mouthfeel: I find the beer to be less syrupy then other eisbocks that I have tried. But it clearly follows the style. Medium in body light in carbonation.
