3.76/5 rDev -11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Bottle dated 11/12/13. Poured into a snifter at 45F.
A - Pours a cloudy light brown color. The single finger of off-white head dissipated quickly, leaving a long lasting lacing that was resupplied by a stream of small bubbles from the bottom of the glass.
S - Strong ester smell with banana, pineapple and bread as the primary components.
T - Fairly dry with a taste that matches the smell. Banana in the foreground with malty sweetness in the middle and a crisp apple/pineapple finish.
M - Moderate mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
O - My first eisbock. More fruity than the American double bocks I have tried. A good summer beer, even with the 12% abv. Highly recommended for those who like eatery Belgian beers.

3.81/5 rDev -10.1%

A: The pour is a dark caramel color with plenty of hazy reddish highlights. A tall creamy off-white head sits on top. S: The smell is clove, banana and raisin and yeast. T: This beer is very sweet. The noble hops are fighting a losing battle here. The finish struggles towards dryness, thankfully, otherwise this beer would be too sweet except for sipping or drinking with food. M: The body is in line with the flavor: medium to heavy. Texture is creamy and lingers just a little on the palate. Carbonation is adequate for the heavy sweetness. D: This beer was good, and I think it probably has come to define the style. Therefore, it would be hard to rate it low. It is not really my favorite style due to the intense sweetness, but it does manage to bring together two very different styles: hefeweizen and doppelbock. I guess there is some value in that.
