This was a hard beer to review since it was so different than most other beers. First observation - no way I would have thought it was 12% alcohol since there was little after taste. Second - I can't wait to get another bottle to try - it was that good and here is why
- nice thick flavor
- taste of caramel and coffee characteristics
- some floaters/clumps in the glass - I poured it in two parts first 2/3 and it was more clear, but adding the bottom yeast made it better
Definitely go buy a bottle.

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.
