look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours a very murky dark brown color, bordering on black. The bready head dissapeared to a slight ring of foam around the top of the glass. A larger head with some staying power would have been nice.
The smell is similar to Aventinus but boozier and with more raisin and dark fruits.
The taste is big but surprisingly drinkable. The booze thats apparent in the nose is there but not all that prominent. Mostly there's just a ton of dark fruit, raisins, clove and banana. Its really quite well done. The balance is just right.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly light for a beer of this strength. Carbonation is crisp and and likely makes it go down easier than it would have without it.
Drinkability is really good. I wouldn't recommend drinking them back to back but you could!

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.
