look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A - Deep amber brown body with a nice bubbly offwhite head.
S - Alot of wheat and lightly roasted grains in the nose. Sweet alcohol wafting around in the form of brandy or rum with bananas. A touch of malt and dry fruit.
T - Tastes of brandy soaked fruit and alcohol warmth. Malty notes mingling with wheat toast. SLight dark sugar mixes with the wheat twang and finishes with an evaporating warmth.
M - A solid medium body with a nice hot bite. Warming and drying the mouth as the beer goes down. This one is actually very tolerable within its high abv. The alcohol isnt masked but blended nicely.
O - An excellent eisbock, with a nice complexity and harmony of flavors and body.

4.18/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pours with half a finger of soft white head. The color is dark brown with some lighter touches around the edges. Active carbonation is very light.
Smell: Bright cloves and bananas explode out of the bottle. Dark fruits with accents of plums, papaya, cedar, and tobacco work their way on to the scene after the front. There is a sting of booze on the back end that really pulls your attention, but not in a negative way.
Taste: Spices and booze hit on the front. Dark fruits, bananas, and cloves warm up on the body. That warming heat lingers throughout the body and into the finish. Earth and tobacco go well with the booze on the back end. Exotic spices round this one out.
Mouthfeel: I kind of love the tongue numbing booze this one brings. Lots of fruits and spices play a great compliment as well.
Overall: My first Eisbock and this was a treat. Reminded me of a big boozy quad. Glad I got a classic of the style to establish a benchmark.
