look: 2.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a murky opaque blackish brown with a three-finger rocky head. - 2.5

S - Very malty with an enhanced wheat beer aroma, spicy, dark fruit, maybe even some faint clove, alcohol clearly evident (even a bit cough syrupy) - 4.25

T - Very malty. faintly sweet, the 12% ABV peeks through some. - 3.75

MF - Warming, medium-heavy body with some creaminess. - 4.0

O - A bit too hot for me but a tasty malt bomb. 3.75

4.16/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: murky brown and opaque - I dropped it centrally into a snifter and got a massive dense head of foam that took some time to slim down into a filmy tan cap; brief motes of lace trailed behind

S: boozy fruits, like dates, plums and figs; overripe banana and thick dense bread

T: banana and ripe dark fruit, booze and spice, particularly clove; some distant dark cherry and maybe a little wet cocoa powder

M: full-bodied and fuzzy soft/smooth; peppery spikes of spice and alcohol tingle a bit at first, but are then suffused by the creamy malts

O: clearly a top-of-the-line ale, although you need to want that sweet, fruity, boozy drinking experience. My first eisbock, I liken it to a quad or a wheatwine - rich and deep, totally enjoyable, but not something I'd reach for casually.

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.
