look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
330ml bottle (2010 # 033054) poured into a tulip. Un-filtered, so yeast was topped up.
Dark brown mahogany-like with an amber tinge, massive tan head with good retention, it dissipates into thin bubble layer covering the surface and leaves wee lace, high active yet fizzy carbonation.
Mingling with banana ester, ripe plums, berries, phenolic clove meanwhile malt is also there to yield a complex mixture by a mild bready note.
There are 3 tiers in its complexity of taste. First, fruits ester and malt yield mellow sweetness and fruitiness flavor. Then, clove also alcohol come in position with a warm touch of fusel that also reinforce its sweetness and syrupy solvent. Last, fruits ester and malt reclaim their place with sweetness and fruity tang that cling in the finish also linger in an aftertaste, hop also there at the end with slight bitterness underneath all that mixed up.
Stickily full and syrupy body with good amount of carbonation that yield fine crispness palate which really well suit, finish is dry.
Solid, complex yet delicate brew, don’t let its high alcohol content take you away. I’m now looking to cellar this beer more for anytime need.

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.
