4.3/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Pretty dark brownish amber red. Small tan head quickly fizzes away to nothing. No noticeable lacing.
Smell: Strong aroma of dark malt and dried fruits. Some banana and clove. Also some yeast and vanilla.
Taste: Dark malts and dried fruit up front with banana, cloves and spice. Slight taste of boozyness. Some hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation. Pretty smooth.
Overall: A very tasty Eisbock from Germany.
Serving type: bottle

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.
