This is a beer that will knock you on your butt if you aren't paying attention to that high abv. Poured a dark ruby color with a big head and lively carbonation. Head dissipated to a thin covering as I nursed this badboy. Smelled the typical weizen aromas and a bit of brown sugar or raisins. You get the same thing in the taste and get some real sweetness with the kick of alcohol. I could feel the alcohol more as the beer warmed while I nursed it. This Eisbock has a nice mouthfeel that has a bit of a medicinal feel to it. This Weizen-Eisbock hides the alcohol well though I still know it is there and therfore one in a sitting is more than enough for me.

A: Poured rather dark brown with a creamy, beige head. A light level of carbonation is visible and there is very good head retention.
S: There are aromas of malty sweetness and dark fruits along with some hints of bananas and alcohol.
T: The flavors of the complex taste follow the smell and the flavors definitely seem stronger and more like an intensified version of Aventinus. A slight taste of alcohol is perceptible, but doesn't stand out and detract from the taste.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat thick yet still is smooth on the palate.
D: The alcohol content is rather well hidden so this beer is relatively easy to drink but is better to be sipped.

2007-dated bottle into Cab glass...

Significant cloudiness with strong mahogany body. Chewy, bready head develops with ample carbonation. Pours like a Quad - can notice texture in seam between head and body).

Slight wheat electricity - Belgian spice profile of yeasty gingerbread and brown sugar. Tinniness when first poured dissipates with warth.

Deep, rich taste of candied ginger, a little chocolate and molasses. Bountiful yet nicely balanced. Alcohol is in background behind rich spice profile.

Mouthfeel is very viscous from front to back. Deep, long, smooth finish.

This is enjoyable to sip and savor. By no means what I was expecting - awesome!
