look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Dark tan/black, minor 1/2 inch head, not much lacing.
Smell - Huge grape, rasin and plum aroma. Sugars, malts, spices, belgium yeast sweetness. Some alcohol , a little bit of wine like aroma after it warms a bit.
Taste - Strong rasin and plum upfront, with alcohol, sugars and malts. Apple and grapes and cherries also add even more fruity flavors. Not much bitter or tartness, very much like a wheat ale with its grainy finish. Near the finish, some molassess mixed with some cinnamon and banana comes out to finish this beer off.
Mouthfeel - Strong, booze nails whole mouth with each drink. All the sugars and fruits coat tounge and palette leaving sweet and spicy notes. Palate gets the same sugars and fruits, along with huge caramel malts. Aftertaste is dry, fruity and boozy.
Overall - Excellent, my first eisbock, id describe this somewhere between a heffe, a belgium strong ale, and even a port wine. Fantastic fruity notes, big alcohol flavor in each sip and nice amouth of sweet suagrs and spices. A must try.

A: Dark maple syrup brown, cloudy, a finger of light beige head, opaque so can’t see any carbonation.
S: Very weizen like, dark fruits like dates and figs, ripe bananas, floral, black pepper, ripe banana peels, a slight fermented fruit.
T: Big weizen flavours, dark fruit, dates and figs, ripe bananas, tannic, sweet, big alcohol flavours, little bitterness. Brown sugar.
M: Thick, weighty syrupy body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation.
O: My first in this style. A strong beer that’s well done and a sipper, but very drinkable. Complex good flavours, reminiscent of a weizen.
