3.3/5 rDev -22.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
-dark brown in color with a very deep reddish, almost purple hue to it. soda like light brown head that only sticks around the edges of the glass for the most part
-very fruity sweet on the nose. almost to the point of being tart...kind of like a sweet tart candy. powdery sense to it. there is a bit of malt deep in there too
-it's hard to really say what is going on in the taste. it's just a big mash-up. heavy malty, but not to a degree to where there is any standout flavors. the carb bite just really gets in the way
-quite carby. it is almost like a soda. big bite on the tongue and throat. it is warm, but not as much as i thought it would be
-not a big fan. i drank the whole thing, but it was more like soda to me. oh well. was excited for it, but cant like em all i suppose

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.
