A: hazy brown with a quickly-dissipating head.
S: banana, clove, fig, bready malt, molasses, candied sugar, alcohol.
T: alcohol is noticeable, but not in a bad way. Taste follows the nose. Most distinguishable for me are: spiced rum, dark fruit, molasses, fig, clove.
M: I was surprised by the somewhat-creamy mouthfeel. The carbonation is high as well.
O: I am excited to try this beer when the weather turns cold. Still a nice change of pace for the summer, and a very drinkable brew despite its high abv.

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%

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.
