12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. It pours a slightly cloudy dark brown color with lots and lots of yeast chunks everywhere. There is no lacing on the glass. The smell has lots of roasted malt character, with some caramel sweetness and a hint of alcohol. The taste is also very sweet, with lots of caramel and toffee, some dark fruit, and just enough alcohol to warm you up nicely. The mouthfeel is nice and heavy, yet smooth. The drinkability suffers some from the 12%, but this is still a damn tasty brew from Schneider & Sohn.

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.
