Pours out like a root beer. No fizz whatsoever.
Very intimidating to say the least.
The smell is like a fine wine. So many aromas to take in.
Fruits and chocolate and clove and spices.
The taste doesn't fail here either. So many flavors. First is dark malt and sweet fruit. Followed by an alcoholic rush of warmth.
There is toffee and choclolate and coffee and (take your pick)
Mouthfeel is wonderful. Can't feel the alcohol in the mouth, you feel it in the esophagus.
You wouldn't and probably couldn't drink more than 2 of these at a sitting so I have to rate this a bit low even though it is one of the best beers I have ever consumed.

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.
