look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

A: Very dark caramel. Head like the surface of the moon. Fine bubbles puckered with bigger bubbles. Goes down fairly quickly. Mushroom colour works beautifully with the body colour. Classy looking.

S: Strong wheat beer banana flavour plus cloves, rum, caramel and marzipan. Christmas pudding. Beautiful.

T: Banana, marzipan and dried fruit flavours are very upfront. Sweet and sticky but balanced. Loads of Christmas pudding. Strong tasting but immensily quaffable. A nice big belch releases more Christmas pudding. It's a bold Belgian on steroids.

M: Nice and sticky with a Weizenbier texture.

O: One of the best beers I've ever had. It has all the flavour of a dark bold Belgian with the texture of a German Weizen. It's actually ruined the Belgian quadrupel/strong dark ale for me. If you don't like this beer I don't like you.

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

A: A hazy dark brown with a thick tan colored head.

S: Banana, bubble gum, clove, toasted malt, and booze.

T: Initial flavors are of sweet booze and clove spice. This fades into a banana fruit flavor and eventually into a faded clove and alcohol burn. As it warms, a vanilla flavor starts to come through.

M: Heavy and a little syrupy, yet smooth. Burn from the alcohol.

O: I've never had an Eisbock before, so I've nothing to compare to. However, the beer is full of great aromas and flavors. I would definitely pick this up again...especially if I find it for $4.99 on sale again. I think I would clean them out.

Served in a chalice. This is my first Eisbock tasting.
The beer poured a deep molasses color with a two fingered head, yielding a pleasant frothiness.

This is one of most complex beers I have ever tasted. There is an overpowering fruit smell. The finish- highly complex, exhibits mint, fruit, molasses, with alcohol overtones.

This is a beer not to be missed. It's highly alcoholic, and 6 ounces may be enough to be savored at one sitting. It's the ultimate sipper.

Will experience again.

Poured into a weizen glass.

A: Pours a reddish copper with moderate carbonation. Has a short head that dissipates quickly revealing some legs.

N: Raspberry, prune juice, overripe plum, blackberry and heavy doses of caramel and toffee.

T: Black raspberry, caramel, toffee and candy sugar upfront. Mid-palate travels through with concord grape, bread and toasted wheat; heavy on the wheat. Finishes with sugar coated dark fruits comprised of plum, raisin and prunes. Some booze is apparent.

M: Full bodied, velvety, smooth, sticky and warming.

O: A lot of dark fruit and berry notes. Some booze is apparent but it is rather pleasant. Pretty easy to drink at 12%.

11.2oz bottle into tulip snifter.

Pours near black in color, with deep red edges when held to the light. A thin off white head.

The aroma is reminiscent of a weizenbock, with clove and weizen yeast upfront. There are also some dark fruit notes and lightly boozy finish.

The taste follows the nose, with clove upfront followed by a brief bit of dark fruit and a light booziness in the finish.

A medium to full body with a light amount of prickly carbonation.

I enjoyed this beer, and while it never became a big issue, the booziness started to come through a bit more than I liked as it warmed. Though I suppose that is probably to be expected in the style.
