Alright, this is my first eisbock ever. I was expecting similarities to the other offerings from Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn. Nope.
500mL into a tulip, this beer pours as plum-brown with a uniform opacity of color. Foam is rich and copious. Smell reminds me of malt, plums, molasses / demerara sugar, and soy sauce (it would make an interesting marinate for fish)
Into the pie hole: the first two characteristics noted were sweetness and richness. There are syrup-like qualities to this beer. It is intense and heavy. To my tastes this beer should be matched with food: chinese cuisine or deep fried/battered fish would pair nicely.
Overall, an excellent beer, with the 12% ABV not immediately apparent.

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.
