3.93/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
11.2 fl. oz. poured into pint glass. Purchased Dec. 27, 2010. Consumed Dec. 31, 2010. Bottle number: 2009 028384. 12% ABV.
Appearance: Dark caramel colour and slightly cloudy (I agitated it a little bit by accident) with a nice ecru coloured head.
Smell: Huge dose of malt with a slight bubblegum smell.
Taste: Velvety malt (not cloying), but still has wheat characteristics.
Mouthfeel: Rich and velvety, but there is still a bit of prickly carbonation. Actually, I think a little less carbonation would have been desirable.
Drinkability: At 12% ABV, this is a hefty beer. However, I get no heat. Ultimately, I think this beer could use perhaps a couple years to become truly excellent. I have a great respect for G. Schneider & Sohn, and they will always have a place in my refrigerator.

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.
