My first eisbock. Ive heard great things about this style, and I generally like bock beers. So here we go.

Smell: somewhat mild, yet distinct smell, sweet malt dominates, dried fruits, almonds and some burnt coffee notes. Very nice and pretty complex smell.

Taste: just as good as the smell, roasted sweet malt, raisins, figs, almonds and some elegant coffee/chocolate notes.

Overall: excellent brew. Lots of flavors, very balanced. Ive had too many extrem beers lately, so this one was really nice to try. It kicks ass with simple means.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 3/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of yeast, alcohol, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight caramel malt, hint of syrup, hint of hop, and. Fits the style of a Eisbock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, alcohol, yeast, slight caramel malt, slight hop, and hint of pale malt. Overall, malt-centric, balanced, the alcohol warms to a pleasing degree, and another good brew from Kulmbacher.

This is Korbinian with a slightly better mouthfeel. I just can't get into the dark fruit doppelbocks anymore, and this one is par for the course, ho-hum doppelbock. Taste isn't very exciting, nothing different vs. Korbinian or Celebrator, and this is an Eisbock with a relatively low ABV.

4.18/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a snifter.

A - Beautiful brown, foamy head. Rich black color.

S - Dark fruits, syrup.

T - A tad sweeter than Aventinus, but many of the same dark fruit and malty tastes. Slight sugary taste, maybe more to brown sugar.

M - A tad thin, but nothing too off-putting.

O - This is a solid and tasty eisbock. Not as good as Aventinus but who cares? It's still enjoyable and worth seeking out if you're in the mood for this style.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Received as part of a “Beer of the Month” gift from my children. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

I really like this beer. Lagers can be complex and as satisfying as a big ale. A beer I will keep in my cellar. 4.5

A – Pours a cola colored/reddish brown, clear (but opaque in the glass), with a half-finger light brown head that quickly dissipates.4.75

S – Malty, some sweetness, bread crusts, prunes, molasses, some vinous grape-like qualities. 4.75

T – Malty with a good bit of sweetness balanced by the alcohol, some slight spiciness and roastiness, low bitterness, a bit of alcohol breaks through. 4.5

MF – Medium-bodied, a bite of alcohol, with a sweetness in the finish. 4
