I love boozy Eisbocks.
Appearance: Pours a dark almost opaque mahogany with a tan head that recedes to a faint ring around the edge of my snifter glass. There is a red hue that shows through when backlit. The lacing is sporadic but almost noteworthy at the start.
Smell: Knock me back big. I started to pour and wow I got a hue whiff of sugar, alcohol and banana bread that quite rich.
Taste: It is a great taste and very rewarding but on the same token it is straightforward and quite simple. Sweet. Alcoholic. Spicy. and then And then some thick syrup and dark fruits to boot. Caramelized malts, figs and banana along with some spices that come out even more in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Exceptionally smooth despite the big alcohol pull on the cheeks.
Drinkability: It is not a quick or easy drinker but it is enjoyable enough to have around as the occasional nightcap.
Hope this is helpful.

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.
