4.08/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Type: 12 oz bottle.
From: Plum Market in Ann Arbor, MI
Appearance: Dark dark brown almost black. opaque. a finger of off-white and foamy head. fades quickly to nothing. pretty good looking beer
Smell: dark fruits. some wheat and a hint of alcohol.
Taste: Wheat, Dark fruits and alcohol. One drink at a time tastes pretty damn good, but if you take back to back sips and alcohol takes over the taste. I wish it were a tad more drinkable
Mouthfeel: Heavy, a bit chewy. low carbonation. warming sensation is certainly present.
Overall: very good beer but the alcohol is a bit overpowering. I like a strong alcohol presence in my strong beers but this one takes over the taste.

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.
