4.18/5 rDev +1.5%
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.

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

Pours an opaque dark brown to ruby red with no head.
Smells of plum, raisin and dried fruits.
Lots of malt, Tastes of dried fruits, dried plum, raisins sweetness masks any alcohol. No hops here.
Heavy, full bodied mouthful, light carbonation and almost oily on the tongue.
Overall, great Eisbock, this may be my very first one but not my last.
