4.7/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours purple-brown with lively carbonation and a frothy white head that quickly reduces to a thin ring.

Smell is dominated by dark fruit and sweet carmelized malt. Bananna, spices and light alcohol notes.

Taste is similar to nose with the sweetness of carmelized malt and dark fruit such as plum, raisin, and dates taking center stage. finish has a mils hop presence that slowly dissipates to fruity sweetness and spices that linger on the tongue. balanced and enjoyably complex. Alcohol notes are a constant companion that lingers in the background.

Mouthfeel is quite lively and creamy. Very smooth.

Overall this is an awesome beer with flavors are intersting and complex. The high ABV is well hidden but certainly sneaks up on you. Make sure you don't have anything but relaxing to do right after drinking this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a muddy brown with a thin, white ring of "head." Amazingly strong weizen aromas of banana, clove, and bubblegum. I'm truly taken aback at the how assertive this beer is while smelling it. I, in no way, have to stick my nose in the glass and sniff for this beer's character; it's all upfront. Ditto on the flavors. Tastes like weizen concentrate (which it IS, of course). This is a real treat for anyone who loves characteristic German wheat flavors. The only area that the taste loses points in is that I feel the sweetness could be put a little more in check. Aside from that, this is pretty damned stellar. Does a great job of hiding the alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and fairly slick with a little bite on the tongue. I am impressed with how drinkable this is, especially at its alcoholic strength. Those who do not phenolic beers should steer clear of this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours a cloudy brown. There is quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The head is light tan. It fades a little quick, leaving very few laces.

This beer has a malty aroma. I detect some dark fruits. Not much on the hops. The 12 percent ABV is hidden well. It does have a very slight rum like aroma.

This beer tastes a lot like it smells. It has a malty caramel like flavor. It also has a raisin or plumb like flavor. Not very hoppy at all. It has a very subtle spicy flavor.

This beer is full bodied. It goes down smooth, leaving a very malty aftertaste. The alcohol, after a few sips, warms the throat as it goes down.

This is probably not a great session beer. It is a bit high in alcohol. Also, the flavor is pretty aggressive. It is a good beer though. I am glad to have had the chance to try it.

2 year old Eisbock served in a pilsner glass. Murky brown with no head at all, but some mild carbonation. Smell is slightly alcoholic with a sweetness of wheat extract. The taste is enhanced by the stellar body which I chewed through. Large doses of clean wheat flavor and tight yeast flavor mixed with a good alcohol taste, fruityness starts to bloom in the middle of my tongue in the aftertaste and draws me back for more. Lovely stuff.

11.2 ounce bottle from Liquor Max in Loveland, CO, $4.04 with their mixed sixer discount. Bottle #2004/06938. Beer #19 in my quest to have the top 25 German beers.
Slight off-white head over a foggy tawny mahogany body. Yeast was swirled and decanted. Head fully dissipates, leaving some streams of rising bubbles. Smell is vinous and sweet, with coffee, chocolate malt, figs and prunes, cherries, toasted rye bread and date nut bread, maybe a hint of walnut. Taste is sweet vinous, peppery, warming, chocolate-covered cherries, burned sugar, roasted hazelnut. Very complex. Wow. The alcohol is definitely right there: no hiding 12%, even behind all this flavor. But what an amazing amount of flavor. Red wine. Just got a piece of Ghirardelli dark chocolate -- what a match! Also, what a thick, creamy mouthfeel. This is smooth as silk and thick as caramel. However, it's for sure a one-at-a-timer. Will I have this again? Absolutely. Will I have it again tonight? Don't think I could. Exceptionally drinkable for what it is.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2oz bottle poured into a weizen - with the sediment swirled and included. Light, tawny lacing with staying power atop a dark brown - foggy body.

To the nose, grains are there - but the underlying theme is spiciness and wet earth.

In the mouth, this is one smooth beer. You are hit with layer after layer of sweet malts and grains. Very forthright from the beginning. This is no lightweight. The spices from the nose are there - but do not overpower the wonderful malts. There is a slight hop character that just doesn't make it past the malts.

The feel here is heavy and full - very substantial in the mouth. It's big alcohol and you know it - but not beyond the drinkability stage. It finishes still sweet - but very organic and not hard at all.

Musings: This beer will kick your ass. It is a delicious malt powerlode that will knock you out. Highly recommended.

A - Poured into a Aventinus glass a dark brown color, not much carbonation, no head, not much lacing really, some small bits of yeast were detected.

S - Scents of plums, sweet malts, and caramel.

T - The taste is sweet and alcoholic in nature. There's a nice little warming effect after sipping.

M - Medium body, no carbonation.

D - Drinkable. Another excellent brew from this brewery.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Deep brown color, only slight head after pour. There is an abundance of chunky sediment throughout this one, which kind of turns me off a bit, but what the hell, I still think it will be good. I even tried to leave behind the yeast but there was no stopping it. Aroma is a nice rasiny, chocolate, alcoholic experience. Taste is sweet for a second, then overpowered by raisiny alcohol that carries through the finish and beyond. The malt flavor is mostly dark fruit, with a hint of spice, much like a dubbel or grand cru. The mouthfeel runs even a bit thin, not syrupy as expected. Carbonation is adequate, its quite smooth, I don't really detect any grainy or chunkyness despite what I could see in the appearance. A good strong malt flavor overall, but alcoholic enough that you might want to just have one of these and then switch to something less potent...

4.3/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in 33cl numbered bottle.

Aroma: Good maltiness, raisins, some vanilla and dark fruits like plums. Sweet with low phenols and a distant fruity ester. A little rum raisins.

Appearance: Dark mahogony with dark burgundy highlights. Effervescent with almost no head retention. Hazy (I did not rouse yeast).

Flavor: Rum soaked raisins with an onslaught of melanoidins and a spicy phenolic in the back of the pack. A little taste of alcohol in the aftertaste but pretty free of esters and bitters.

Mouthfeel: Alcohol numbing and warmth. A little spicy astringency. Medium to full mouthfeel with fine medium carbonation.

Overall: I like the dark melanoidin malt profile and its sneaky strength. The phenols are spicy and compliment the malt very well. I'm a little worried about the lack of esters but don't really miss them. A great multi-faceted brew. Good job. Needs more dextrins for improved head.

4.2/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

pours like like flat coke. black, but not completely, some shades of dark brown, but no head at all. the appearance isn't so appetizing given the resemblance to undesirable cola, but fortunately the nose makes up for it.

smells intense! spicy, malty clove, fruity, licorice and gum, booze. there's a lot going on, and it smells strong. ditto for taste. this is one healthy brew. yes it is strong compared to your normal 5% beer, but amazingly balanced and approachable compared to your normal 12% cabernet savignon. mouthfeel is chewy, almost syrupy. heavy and sweet but there's a nice bitter kick in the aftertaste.

i've only had a couple of each, but i think i prefer this to the original aventinus weizenbock, perhaps because of the ridiculously high abv! i can only imagine having 1 at a time, but i enjoyed this time and look forward to the next.

Poured into my Pils glass. A rush of carbonation bubbles race to the top but no head remains after the initial pour. Caramel, figs, plums and grapes are the main things I get from the first noseful. The malts dominate the the full body leaving a sweet syrupy and fruity finish. The alcohol only enters into the equation as it hits my stomach. At $3.00 a bottle this is a steal for what's inside.

The aroma immediately identifies this wheat-based beer, with your obvious banana notes, but there is also some spice. On the palate we are greeted immediately by spice, malt, a fleeting tartness, then the warmth of alcohol that flows downward into the belly. The aftertaste is long and moderately tart, with hints of banana.

This seems to be a beer that opens up as you drink it, revealing more layers along the way, and I imagine that goes for subsequent samplings.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearence - Murky brown, really dark, but not black like a stout, kinda like a deep chestnut color. Really no head to this, it dissipates so fast and leaves just a foam ring along the glass.

Smell - Smell is amazing, brown sugar, dark ripe fruit, caramel, and hints of alcohol. Quite possibly one of the best beers I have smelled.

Taste - Taste is ok, I guess after smelling it I had hoped it would taste like that, but this tastes like a really strong Weizenbock, which I guess in essence thats what it is. Would have ranked higher if it tasted just like it smelled.

Mouthfeel - Thick, very rich, a slight tingle from either the carbonation or alcohol, I cant tell which.

Drinkability - Definitly not a session beer, has a pretty high alcohol content and rich taste so its a sipper. I dunno as I would buy another, I have had a couple other eisbocks I have enjoyed more at a lower price.

Cola or maple syrup colored with a substantial and lasting tan head that leaves a bit of nice lace.

The aroma is caramel, fruit, spice and alcohol.

The taste is sweet dark malt, figs, plums, pears with caramel and spices. The finish is rich and warm. Full bodied, a bit sweet but not quite syrupy.The spiciness and warmth takes some of the edge off.

A very nice beer for sippimg after dinner or on a cold winter day. Smooth and easy to sip.

A: Thick, dense head that slowly melts into a thin layer of light brown/tan foam around the perimter of the glass. The "melts" is apt, for with a beer of this thickness, processes must be described as slow, almost geologic in their movement. The beer is a very dark brown away from the light, turning an orange-amber when held to the bulb. A surprising amount of carbonation is visible, despite the murkiness and anticipated thickness of this brew.
S: Strong, syrupy, brown sugar scents abound, along with traces of plums and dark cherries. No detectable yeast or hop presence.
T: Thick, molasses-style sweetness upfront with synergizing flavors of plum and rum. The alcohol presents itself midway through and strengthens until the finish. Lingering sweetness in the aftertaste that does not come across as cloying.
M: Thick body, little carbonation, smooth through and through.
D: The density of the elements and the high alcohol content make this an excellent sipping beer for the winter months. A simple creation, when one considers its core tastes of brown sugar, rum, and plums. Yet its depth is its strength, each element heightened to an elegant extremity. Excellent for drinking while discussing seminal issues with good friends or pondering works of art alone in the semi-darkness.

Pours out brown-amber with a low head that quickly is gone.
Smells winey , with some clove and cherry.
Tastes a little too sweet for me..and I like sweet beers. A lot of chocolate- covered- cherry flavor , with some cough syrup phenol; and the alcohol punching through. Very winey, with all kinds of spice. Sweet sherry finish.
Very low carbonation...almost syrupy mouthfeel...not crazy about the lingering sweet at the end.
This is actually very similiar to Kasteel Red in taste, mouthfeel and alcohol concentration.
Boy, just one is kicking my ass...pretty high ABV.
I really like Aventinus , but not sure I like it as concentrated as this.
I guess I'll stick to the Weizenbock...and leave the eis zum die kuhle leute( sorrry, high school Deutsch many years ago).

I had this ale tonight, served om a bottle and Celebrator glass at the Old Stein Inn in Edgewater, MD.

Appearance: Deep auburn-orange color, this ale had a great deal of sediment when poured into the glass. The bottle poured with an acceptable amount of head.

Smell: Malts come up from the glass, establishing themselves as the predominant flavor and smell of the ale. The malts are not so strong though that they reek of sweetness.

Taste: Malts hit the taste buds immediately. They are slightly sweet, providing a nice counterbalance to the high abv. The sweetness of the malts gives way to a pleasant, even wheat taste after a few seconds.

Mouthfeel: The ale sits nicely in the mouth. The wheat character provides a bit of tanginess that mixes well with the sweetness of the malt.

Drinkability: The drinkability is limited by the 12% abv, but the ale is nicely balanced and the wheat adds a distinct taste.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a - Dark brown, modest head that diminished rather due, no doubt, to the alcohol content.

s - Dark dried fruit aroma, chocolatey aroma of well toasted barley. I could smell this all day if the glass didn't keep finding it's way to my mouth.

t - Taste of alcohol is very prominent. The fruit and barley aromas become more prominent as the beer warms.

m - Carbonic, alcoholic with a pleasant viscosity. To me, a great balance

d - I could drink it til I drop. At 12% abv that might not take long. I intended for it to last longer than it did. Great beer for those "special" occasions --- like Wednesdays or Thursdays. Personally, I'm saving it for days ending in "y"

Appearance - Somewhat cloudy, brown beer with a light head that dissapates rather quickly and leaves minimal lacing. I sort of expected this based on style.
Aroma - Sweet and caramel. Bready and yeasty with hints of fruit and toffee.
Taste - Sweet and sugary initially then some light peppery notes and a bit of a syrupy finish. The alcohol comes a moment later as a hot burn in the nose.
Mouthfeel - Medium to thick. Somewhat like flat Coca Cola.
Drinkability - It's very tasty and I enjoy drinking it but I know one bottle an evening would pretty much be the max for me.

What I describe as making icewine out of the Aventinus dopplebock. I picked up a 24 of this at the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, (Kenmore) NY. Served at 8C, in the Schneider Eisbock glass.

The bottle looked like most other beer bottles. A silver cap held in this monster rather than the purple and white Aventinus cap from the doppelbock, which is more common where I live.

When poured, it filled the glass with an opaque, burgundy/mahogany hued liquid. There was a short head, but it collapsed leaving floating islands of foam.

There is a strong aroma to this beer. Almost like sugary molasses, bleu cheese, and rubbing alcohol. Not discouraging though! This is from someone who doesn't particularly like bleu cheese.

One hearty sip and smash! I said above that I consider this beer to be the 'icewine' equivalent to the Aventinus Weizenstarkbier doppelbock. If you've never had either the doppelbock or the eisbock, then I recommend starting with the doppelbock, then moving on to this gem. The taste is absolutely fantastic. Since I love Aventinus, the Eisbock is a treat of concentrated Aventinus.

I don't know how many of these I could drink. It would certainly be the highlight at a beer tasting event, but as for a session beer, I'm not optimistic. Good thing I got a case of these. At the rate I'm drinking these, I'll have some into the year 2007. I hear this ages incredibly as well. Bonus!

Overall, the Eisbock is an experience for anyone wanting to try a very complex and enging beer. The beer is smooth to drink, almost syrupy, but the 12% will soon catch up to the palate. I strongly recommend trying the Aventinus Doppelbock first, then trying this sweet baby. That will give you a sense of the order of the process of making this beer as well. If you don't like the Aventinus, try the Eisbock anyway. If you don't like it, sorry I suggested it.

12oz. bottle provided by AKSmokedPorter via BS-BIF

Pours a hazy deep chestnut brown with a very small head that instantly recedes. No lacing on the glass.

Very complex aroma. Lots of sweet, dark fruity aromas with a hint of chocolate. There is also a slight breadiness present and some alcohol aroma as well. The alcohol becomes more present as it warms.

A sweet malty fruitiness upfront followed by a slight chocolate taste. This is washed away by a swift alcohol bite and finishes slightly sweet and fruity. Don't let it warm up too much or the alcohol really takes over.

Big full body, it lets it all hang out.

Quite drinkable considering the big ABV. Just pace yourself or you'll wake up on the floor.

Served from a bottle, slightly cooler than room temp. The eisbock appears in my glass a clear brown liquid, with highlights of garnet. Carbonation rises slowly though the obviously full body. Arespectable thick beige head appears at first pour and quickly fades to a thin rim of lacing about the edges of my snifter.

Aroma is very sweet, with a bit of cooca and reolant with mature fruit, a tiny bit of banana in there too. Taste very full and complex, with plums and raisins mingling with caramely sweetness and a spicy hint of alcohol. Body is nicely full and the eisbock drinks dangerously smooth. Finish is sticky sweet with with a lingering touch of tartness. Very fulfilling beer, worthy of aging if you can hold on to it that long.

Foamy, lightly tan head that fizzles to a semi-intact sheet after a moment. Very faint drops of lacing that quickly vanishes. A deep burgundy in color with chunks of floating sediment.

Semi-sweet, light chocolate aroma. Tart fruity esters: grape, sour cherry, green apple. Notes of meaty raisin and plum. Tangy molasses adding a touch of spice. Complex whaffs of inviting alcohol. Very intense aromatics!

Bourbon flavored raisin, plum, and date. Additional fruity-esters: orange, apple, cherry. The sour fruit quality that was foreshadowed in the nose is almost absent in the taste. An underlying toffee and milk chocolate malt character. The alcohol presence swarms in and out of each flavor component adding a sharp and warming trait. Chocolate, plum/grape, and bourbon fill the aftertaste. (The alcohol intensity seems to mellow out as this brew warms up).

Medium bodied; vaporous, yet surprisingly smooth and almost creamy on the palate.

The alcohol presence is very strong and aggressive which takes away from the drinkability. However, the complexities of flavor make this lager one to seek out.

11.2oz. bottle with information about the beer and history, bottle number, and bottle vintage date all on the back. Mine was bottle No. 18269 vintage 2002. This makes it a 4yr. old beer.

Appearance: Poured a dark brown color with just a little skim of foam at the top and very few rings around my Snifter. In the beer and left at the bottom of the bottle there seems to be plenty of sediment in this beer. I wonder if the beer being at 4yrs. old is the reason why there was so much sediment in the beer.

Smell: Up front there was a rich aroma of dark fruits and with a moderate smell of chocolate and malt in the background.

Taste: Malty!!! Bascially it was just sweet malts and dark fruits with a strong alcohol presence in the background. I really didn't notice any wheat (weizen) in this like it said on the label, but I sure did taste the full bodiedness of the Eisbock though.

Mouthfeel: Full-Bodied with a strong alchool aftertaste. The mouthfeel reminds me of a quote from Simpsons Character Ralph Wiggum, "It tastes like burning!"

Drinkability: This made for a nice flavorful Eisbock in the beginning, but i think the strong alcohol presence aftertaste at the end kind of ruined it. But what do I expect from a beer with an alcohol content of 12%?

Has a toffee/licorice malt aroma.

Mod/heavy sweet/acidic/bitter and licorice/molasses malt taste with a crisp orange/grapefruit hops flavor.

Full bodied, syrupy texture, soft almost flat carbonation, and a smooth astringent finish.

Very drinkable for the style, well balanced, and has unique licorice/molasses twist to the smooth aftertaste.
