I got the rare opportunity to try this beer on tap. This is one of those beers which doesn't hold any sort of street cred, but can stand against some of the great beers of the world. Before tonight, I had never heard of this beer. I hope that some day I get to try it again, preferably during winter.

A: The color is black with ruby red highlights one the bottom of the glass. It could be seen, in better light I suppose, as a deep brown. The brown head does not stay very well at all and eventually dissolves to nothing.

S: The nose on this beer is absolutely delicious. The predominant smell is an almost overwhelming strawberry-banana aroma. Seriously. This is the same smell as all those strawberry-banana treats out there. Other noticeable smells include figs and peat. No hop aroma, which is appropriate for the style.

T: The taste is very good. Very similar to some Belgium beers that I have had. I get this nice balance of banana flavor, which sits right on the tongue and up front, and a smokey tobacco flavor which accompanies the drinker to the finish. I think it is a wonderful combination. I have never had a "tobacco" flavor be so pronounced in a beer before and now I really understand that characteristic. It is not "smokey" but more like that cigarette smell. It's good, shut up.

M: The mouthfeel is full-bodied and incredibly smooth. No alcohol present. This makes this beer very palatable. Honestly couldn't be better.

D: This beer rates "exceptional" for this category because the aroma and taste are both so interesting and the alcohol, though 11.5%, is almost absent. SO drinkable. Couldn't be better.

Thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this beer.

12 ounce hand bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with no head. The aroma is dark fruit and caramel malt with some alcohol. The flavor is dark fruit, alcohol, caramel and some chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark Caramel brown with a minimal amount of head, but some nice lacing that coats the glass. Some transparency at the bottom.

S: Some nice estery notes to start with dark fruit notes like plum and dark cherries. Also a bit of sweetness is present fromt he wheat with some bubblegum and banana notes.

T: Very much like the smell. Nice dark fruit notes. Some nice caramel butterscotch and wheat notes to a bits of sweetness. Also some very nice toasted notes in the end

M: The lack of carbonation adds to the overall feel by adding a nice layer of creaminess. A slight hint of booze is present but inviting and there is nothing harsh or invasive to note.

D: Scary drinkable. You know the booze is there you know it is a high abv beer but your cant help yourself with this great beer.

Got this from PEBCAK, cheers Adam!

Tap filled bottle pours a ruddy mahogany with 3+ fingers of mocha head. Head drops sharply,makes violent hissing noises as it off-gasses & throws tracle colored strands up, as the head dies.

S: Smokeyness & some dark fruit, cherries & plums dominate

T: Follows the nose, along some boozey warmth & molasess & a bit of wheat twang up front. Dryness, rum raisin & a bit of leafy hops smeak through as this warms, plus a bit of candi sugar& wheat tartness. Finishes dry fruitty, boozey & warming with cherries, figs & molasess dominating the scene, plus some brown bread soaked in vodka & pralines

MF: Chewy with lively carbonation, plus a touch of silkyness

Drinks easy for the style & abv, but I'm sure this one would reward you with a stellar hangover if you stayed on it past a liter of it, beware! To me this is easily the most eclectic eisbock I've had & the star of the trade (so far)! I bet this would drink so great by a fire in ski country, went down a treat on a fairly warm night in the NC piedmont!

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

Pours a rich ruby brown color with a very small wisy off white head, not much of a head at all. The aroma is of dark fruit, booze soaked cherries and raisins followed by scents of clove and banana. Nice aroma, not overly strong. The flavor is of alcohol vapors, clove and banana, followed by a solid roast malt flavor. It seems to lack a depth of character. Some of the dark fruit pops up in the end as well as a sour cherry note. A moderate body with very soft carbonation; finishes with a sour bitter bite. Though I did get a bit of an alcohol presence in the taste, this eisbock doesn't taste overly boozy or cloying. It could use some more clove and banana flavors but the flavors that are there are good.

This is some very impressive stuff. Doesn't start out that way though. The pour is unassuming. A dark purplish brown with a collar on against the glass instead of a head. A clear fluid with a sticky consistency.

You get notice of greatness here. Smell is full of dark fruits and overripe banana. Clove and roasted malts with a bit of coffee. A sweet alcohol and light yeasty breadiness. Multilayered and complex.

Taste is walking in the footsteps of Aventinus Eisbock and that's saying a whole lot. Smooth, sweet, and wheat malty with a rich delicious fruitiness and nary a trace of alcohol to be found anywhere. There is a larger roasted smokiness compared to the aforementioned but that is not a bad thing. The fruitiness unfolds flavors of cherries and grape as well as raisins, dates, figs. There is a bit of molasses as well. The light coffee shows up in the finish to add a gentle bitterness but hopping is mild if at all. The finish is surprisingly dry and clean with a bit of coffee and clove bound together by banana, yeast and peppery spiciness.

Feel is crisp and dry with a sticky light syrup. Carbonation is just about perfect with a light effervescence on the tongue and cheeks as it sits in your mouth.

Way to easy to drink this one. It may be 11.5 percent but I'd never guess from the taste. I nursed my way through a 16 oz growler that I shared a bit of with the Mrs. and If I had a 32 we would be on our faces. Delicious and sneaky stuff.

Starting the night off in the completely wrong direction... (I'll save those pale ales to rinse after brushing my teeth). Half growler from New Beer, poured into my favorite Ommegang anniversary glass. Stiff pop off the cap, this one is about a month old.

Beautiful brown sugar rise off an eight ounce pour. Nice staying power over a black coffee body, lined with deep amber highlights.

Smells of licorice & earthy blackberries upfront giving a brief acidity, building on cola & anise. The expected banana is disappointingly, a little Runt-y. It trails back on soft honey wheat.

Taste first off is bitter/tart cherries, definitely. I almost have that numbing sensation I always get from the heavy pesticides. The beer is acidic & sharp constantly through, or maybe it's just the alcohol being that well hidden. Cola & milk chocolate that's just too sweet & velvety to be dark. The body is so milky, yet so carbonated. Black grape skins reminiscent on the texture. A little insertion of coffee that I'm not sure of, whether oxidation or roast, it's the only thing here I think isn't in it's right spot. Insignificant anyways. Finish is a Fig Newton kind of combo of fruit & caked malt.

Expectations were high, & I stuffed my bag with growlers(of course), but fuck me if I just pass up their great Winter Wheat from now on with a snobbish "meh" & just pester for this throughout the year.

This beer is insane. I grew up about 10 minutes from here, but it has been a long time since I have been up there. A huge thanks to Mike for sending this one my way. I dont know how I could live without getting to try it. Growler served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 05/09/2009.

Very dark brown on the pour, nearly opaque as I try to look through the haze. No head at all at first but slowly but surely a thin tan cloud rises up and over the top and settles down giving a touch of light foam along the sides and the bottom of the glass.

Tons of rich toffee and caramel initially on the nose, once it warms up though it becomes one of the most complex aromas I have ever encountered. Light alcohol notes, hints of dark cherries and fruit, light chocolate and almost a root beer like touch as it really comes up near room temperature. To say the aroma was inviting would be an understatement, this was intense. Smooth, full, thick body on this one really let the flavor just coat your tongue, and again this was an expierence all its own. A malt monster, caramel and light molasses notes led the charge until a soothing, candy like chocolate and toffee notes come in. But it was the fruit like cherry notes and rich cola flavor that set it apart. Unlike any eisbock I have ever had before, it was rediculously smooth and drinkable.

unreal how good this one really is. I am simply floored. I knew it was going to be a stunner, but wow. I would want this one on tap every day of the week, it is just that damn good. Big thanks to mIke for getting me this, soo worth it.

At Mugs Ale House on Bedford Ave. in Brooklyn they had a tasting with a cask of this brew. Black in color with a thick, tan head and a malty, wheat scent to it.

Good malt taste with a licorice aftertaste to it...slightly chocolate. Despite its high alcohol content, it's a nice balance that goes unnoticed. I'm not familiar with Winter Wheats, but this was quite good.

Ruby coke brown, light quickly fading head. Strong coffee and tobacco aroma, very dry, enough that it creates a ashes-like aspect. Gentle woody component accompanies dark bitter chocolate, cocoa even. I must say I’m a bit shocked at the almost total absence of any fruit hints. The malt is there most definitely, big, thick, but perhaps a little too dry for the beer to deserve its praise in my mind. Focus of flavours seems to be geared toward coffee, cigar and roasted chocolate. A beany aspect also gets uncovered after a few sips and bring up a vegetal tone that I could live without. Medium bodied, light to moderate carbonation level. Let’s sum it up by saying this is a very stoutish eisbock which doesn’t wear its 11.5% at all.

Much thanks to dickinsonbeer for this much celebrated growler...
Appears a hazy dark brown with black noted colors in the outskirts. A 1 finger medium tan head slowly fades out. Scattered spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, clove, and raisins...very much the same as the Winter Wheat.
Taste is of the aforementioned aromas that seem to be held together nicely in a cocoa dusted wheat base.
Mouthfeel is spicey, with hints of the fruit and chocolate and a stickyness that seems appropriate with this concentrated brew.

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

Appearance: When the server brought the Ramstein Eisbock I thought she brought the wrong beer. I have never seen a black Eisbock. With a frothy tan head on top of this beer it looked like a stout. I even had nice lacing. Again I questioned and was re-assured by others who had this beer it is in fact the Ramstein Eisbock. Interesting.

Smell: Roasted dark malts vanilla, raw sugar, malts sweet sweet 'Malt Liquor' type nose with ripe fruit plum and a very gentle alcohol presence.

Taste: Roasty and smooth with the sweet Eisbock attribute that has the 'Malt Liquor' element but with so much more depth. This is the only Eisbock I have ever had that is dark and roasty with chocolate and caramel in the flavor too. A splash of fruit juice as well.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth with only a light warmth form the flavor and spices.

Drinkability: There is absolutely no way that this seemed like a 11.50 % ABV beer. It went down very easily. You'd put down two pint easily before stumbling to your feet to realize what it did to you =).

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

Thanks to mikey711 for the growler of this, much appreciated. Split with brdc this afternoon.

Pours a deep cola brown with a finger of head that dies quickly. The smell is a nice blend of burnt caramel, light raisin and fig, charred banana peel, and perhaps even a bit of citrus.

The taste is lighter than I expected for an 11.5% eisbock. I taste absolutely no trace of the alcohol. But at the same time, it is not quite as big and flavorful as I was expecting either. Expectations sure are a killer, aren't they? Fortunately, this still was quite nice. Banana and burnt caramel dominate, along with a very light orange peel flavor. Not terribly complex, but very easy to sip.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and mostly flat. The carbonation levels do seem appropriate though and match the flavor profile nicely. Drinkability is high for a beer of this ABV. I would have guessed it was closer to 7% if I didn't already feel the strong buzz kicking in after around 16 oz. or so. This is definitely a solid beer and one that I would like to drink again.

Thanks to jwcwattsrugger for sharing...

Pours black with a thin tan head that has a decent retention for abv.

The smell is of dark malts and toffee. Banana and pear add a nice fruity character. Clove and a subtle anise add a nice spiciness. Very complex and extremely inviting.

The taste is of dark malt, toffee and chocolate notes. A wheat tang and banana/clove, pear, some licorice blend together very well. Roasty, peppery notes weave in and out. Alcohol is warming, but fits in nicely without being too upfront or sharp. Sweetish finish.

Medium-to-full bodied. Velvety texture. Not overly syrupy.

An outstanding eisbock. Complex and potent, yet smooth and drinkable. A wonderful winter wheat ale. Thanks again John!

I'll call this a "growler." Filled by Bierkraft and put into a 22oz. bottle. Thanks to mikeyv35 for getting me this one.

A: Poured a dirty mahogany with a large darker tan head. Not too much retention or lacing, but it still looks pretty nice.

S: Superb. Lots of black licorice, sweet malt, dark fruit, cherries, hints of smoke, some alcohol, and bits of chocolate.

T: Very, very intense all around. The black licorice, sweet malt, and dark fruits (plus cherries) stand out as being the most dominant, but this one has a lot going on and only gets better as it warms.

M: Good amounts of alcohol, but nothing distracting too much from the taste.

D: Excellent drinkability. High alcohol and insane complexity make this one a slow sipper.

Viggo brought this one over. thanks eric!

1 litre swingtop growler. sampled april 27/2010.

pours crystal clear deep reddish brown with a very thin layer of very fine white head. the head quickly drops to a scant ring around the glass and leaves only a few spots of lace.

aroma is good. banana and clove. butterscotch and caramel. hint of alcohol. whole wheat bread. date and plum. bit of raisin. hint of smoke.

taste is good. white and whole wheat bread. banana and clove. caramel and butterscotch. date, plum, and raisin. light alcohol. low bitterness level. touch of smoke.

mouthfeel is nice. very low carbonation level. medium-large body.

drinkability is good. nice balance, but the low carbonation does detract from it somewhat. not quite as much depth and complexity as in some eisbocks, but still pretty tasty.

4.8/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Package: 2 liter growler from draught and several 6 oz. samples. 11.5% ABV

Presentation: Fluted tasting glass

Appearance: Dark chocolate brown with ruby highlights. Resembles Coca-Cola, but opaque. Started off with a wet head with several strata. Large-gauge bubbles resting atop a dense cocoa bed of finer beads. Resolves very slowly down to a lasting collar.

Smell: Unlike the “standard” Winter Wheat, this eisbock seems to showcase the earthier chocolate, caramel and other roasted malt smells. Remarkably little or no whiff of alcohol. Like it’s sibling, the bouquet is relatively subdued.

Taste: Wow! Even though my first sample of this was too cold, the flavor impact is immediate and intense. Again, the roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate flavors dominate. As I warm it in my mouth, the fruitier elements speak up: tart apple, banana, and some stone fruit flavors. However, this is a touch drier than I expected, consistent with this year's drier, slightly more austere Winter Wheat. There is virtually no hint of the alcohol wallop sure to come from too much indulgence. The finish is long and rich.

Mouthfeel: Greg informed me that the kegs had been heavily carbonated and kept extra cold in order to facilitate growler fills (and the Copperfield’s event). Therefore, the beer was more carbonated than WW typically is, and too cold. However, the unctuousness definitely comes through. Served properly, this is likely to be even richer and more flavorful, with a potential “5” rating.

Drinkability: Finesse! An incredibly integrated beer, with deep flavor, nice texture, and extremely well-integrated alcohol. I can’t speak for the consequences, but it drinks like one could finish the growler in one sitting. Really should be 5+.

Backwash: After a few false starts, I was very happy to get my hands on some of this. It was worth the effort. As I mentioned, this just became available, and the kegs were heavily carbonated and extra-cold in preparation to fill growlers, so more impressions are likely. All I can say is that rarely have I enjoyed a liquid lunch so much! This beer is the essence of craftsmanship. If you get a chance, visit the brewery and you’ll see the attention lavished on all of their products.

Ok, since I am lazy, I'll just direct you to please read my (glowing) review of Ramstein Winter Wheat...then multiply that times ten. Despite pouring with very little head, modest retention, and decent lace, if you close your eyes, the aroma of dark chocolate mixed with modest alcohol essence will have you thinking that you're smelling a Russian Imp Stout. The taste also revealed hints of dark fruit and caramel, but the chocolate and roastiness dominates, and the finish on this beer I found to be slightly dryer than the Winter Wheat. Again, the alcohol is definitely more noticeable in this offering (and expectedly so), but it blends well with the dark fruit/chocolate/malty balance. Thick and smooth on the palate. Once again, another dangerously drinkable offering by this brewery. Give someone your car keys when drinking this.

This could be one of my favorite beers period, very easily on my top three. I obtained a six pack through some very shady means, but the reward was well worth it...

Color: Dark dark brown. Beautiful light brown lace that carries all the way to the end

Smell: Chocolate, coco, coffee, and a touch of banana.

Taste: Malty fruitiness with chocolate/coffee bitterness on the back end. This beer is 12% and there is very little alcohol taste at all, which can be very dangerous.

Mouthfeel: Silk! Very tight carbonation, almost felt like it came out of a cask.

Drinkability: Even though the 12% didn't come through in the flavor, it came through on the buzz after one.


Overall, I'm a fan. Just wish we could get more of it!

Wow is the best word I can use to describe this finely crafted and rare brew from High Point! I was lucky enough to get one of the very last growler fills from the first batch of 2008 as it's brewed in extremely limited quantities. Greg, owner/brewmaster, said he hopes to have another small batch tapped in late February so call or e-mail the brewery before you go to make sure it's available.

Any way, the review. This one pours a very dark black color with a nice tan head that retains itself nicely. The smell is pretty sweet with hints of cocoa and coffee. Definitely has an imperial stout quality in smell, appearance and taste. And taste? Superb! Has the winter wheat qualities mixed with complex notes of semi-sweet chocolate, malts, black coffee and I even sensed slight vanilla and banana notes. Incredible! The mouthfeel is insanely smooth almost like it came from a hand pump or was on nitro (and this after it sat in my growler for 3 days). Finally, this beer is very drinkable. It hides its alcohol very well although I sensed a slight alcohol burn in the first few sips. A truly exceptional beer worth waiting for!!

By the way, the official name of this beer is Ramstein Ice Storm Eisbock. Not sure if it was changed recently or not.

Big thanks to Beerloco again for this one, another 1 liter swingtop he filled up for me. IP trade at DLD.

Pours a pretty hazy and opaque dark brown, a few reddish orange highlights, tough to see through, big and bubbly light tan head forms and settles down to a very thin ring around the glass, no real lacing sticks.

Smell is nice, big and malty, some caramel, lots of biscuit, dark fruit, banana, big spicy character, some light sherry notes, cherries, toast, alcohol, a bit of earthiness, a touch of chocolate maltiness.

Taste is nice as well, not as intense as I expected for the weight, some banana smoothie, a bit of spice, big biscuit and bread character, a bit of fruitiness, wheat, strawberries, nice chocolate roastiness near the finish, decently balanced, a bit of warmth but the booze is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Pretty smooth for the ABV, just a bit of warmth. Just lacking the complexity I hoped for, but still really nice stuff. Thanks Alan!

Served on Nitro-Tap at Al's of Hampden into a tulip glass.

A - Pours deep, dark, brown with a small thin cap of off white head leaving little to no lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of dulled wheat, chocolate, banana, light spice, sweet toffee, and some dark fruits. Not as strong as I was expecting but still plenty going on. The booze is ever present, getting stronger as the beer comes to room temp.

T - Flavors are similar to the nose with plenty of chocolate, clove, dark fruits, tart cherries, and bready wheat. The booze is light at the beginning only getting stronger as it warms. Finish is a mix of chewy wheat and lingering sweetness. Good balance overall, just a touch too much booze.

M - Medium-Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Full, chewy, feel with plenty of dry lingering chewy sweetness. The booze is ever present.

O - Not so much. I thought this one was ok but not anything mind blowing. The combo of strong flavors and 11% ABV. really make this one hard to drink.

growler fill from ramstein brewery, poured into flute glass.

a- pours a reddish brown to amber, almost looks like coca cola

s- quite malty, bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, anise, charcoal.

t&m- brown sugar and many dark fruits dominate the palate imediately, plummy and pruney, bananas also and it also kinda reminds me of the chocolate flavored twizzlers licorice.

d- for a beer thats 11.5% this stuff goes down like nothing, easy to drink and very bold and full of flavor. wish this stuff was more widely available.

On-Tap

A- RWWI is quite dark having a black look but is more of a very deep brown. Did not get any head or foam to speak so no lace as well.

S- Takes a while to open up. Smells of chocolate, ripe banana, dark malts. A whole bunch of wheat as well and some alcohol. Some cherry with warming.

T- Tastes like an eisbock with malts upon malts giving off a huge sweetness, No hops getting in the way. Chocolate and some cherry make a nice combination. A nice amount of wheat from the base beer. Some alcohol in this 11.5%er, well I kind of saw that coming.

M- Sweet and a bit boozy. The feel on RWWI is full and just grabs your attention. No bitterness at all. Very smooth actually with improvement as it warms.

D- Well the verdict is out and this stuff is top-notch. 11.5% is nothing to take lightly but barkeep, can I get another? Dangerously drinkable, I will look forward to having this treat whenever possible.
