4/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear dark caramel color with reddish highlights. About of finger of very fizzy head that lasts about 10 seconds tops, but I know this is expected for the style.
Smell: Sweet malts, caramel, clove, and esters are all very prevalent. Not as alcohol-y as I thought it would be at 12% ABV.
Taste: A bit of caramel malt, but cloves and esters are very up front and they really taste good. A bunch of warming alcohol on the way down.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: This beer is medium bodied with little carbonation, but it seems to fit the style and makes this beer very smooth. The alcohol is really hidden fairly well considering how high an alcohol content it is.
Serving type: 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.
