A - Rootbeer or cola brown with absolutely no head. A slight haze of whispy smoke covers the top of the brew. This is purple when held to candlelight and the hoards of sea monkeies dancing in the brew become visible.
S - Wonderous aroma of chocolate cake, tootsie rolls, LIttle Debbie snack cakes, yeasty chocolate coated donuts, some gentle grapey vinous scents, and light touches of leafy hops.
T - German chocolate cake, loads of yeast, and a humongous alcohol presence dominate the palate. Behind the chocolatey malt and strong spiced rum alcohol flavors, a gentle hop bitterness adds to a dry finish.
M - Super thick and gritty with a huge alcohol kick in the teeth. This has as much in common with a fine scotch as it does beer.
D - The gargantuan alcohol burn makes this a slow sipper, not a sessioner, but I will return to this once in a while when there is time to slowly enjoy this fine brew. I drank this by candlelight when our power was knocked out one snowstormy night and this was the perfect warming beverage for the occasion.

4.18/5 rDev -1.4%

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.
