look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from an 11.2 / 330ml bottle into some sort flute.. I dont know..
Pours a dark- ice tea like brown with a thick tan head, leaves little retention.
Smells great. Candied sugar, dark fruits, banana and cloves. Strong alcohol aroma dominates, but in a good way. Almost cleared my stuffy nose!! Smells like a strong dark Belgian ale but with a shot of vodka dropped in it.
The taste is much like the nose. It tastes like a Schneider Weizenbock on steroids. Strong alcohol presence throughout which gets stronger towards the end of the glass. Tastes of yeast, fruits and a little bread.
Very smooth and lightly carbonated. Leaves a stickiness and numbness on the lips.
Drinkability is good in the sense it goes down easy, probably too easy. But the high abv limits it.
Im glad I had the opportunity to try this. This beer might be a regular for me.

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.
