We interrupt this marathon session of House to bring you something equally unproductive: A beer review.
This eisbock pours vaporous and slow, a murky darkened brown with a crown of soft cream for head.
God this smells good. Explosive like the best of Belgian dubbels with a similar character. Sugary figs and dates, banana esters, with a hint of bite to come. Only one way to find out.
A.E. really is like condensed Aventinus. Creamier though, spicier too. Funny how much complexity a bit more ethanol can bring. Ones palate doesn't struggle with this beer though. ABV is almost unbelievably disguised. Like a God who hides in shades of oak or fruit, a bitter sweetness one hopes will never leave the glass. This is a soaking beer, or drowning, some would say. Not for parties.
Producing a drinkable eisbock is hard enough. Producing one so downright beautifully flavored is sheer art. If you're in the mood, this beer will take you where you want to go. Be careful.

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.
