4.9/5  rDev +15.6%
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.

4.43/5  rDev +4.5%
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.

4.73/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Poured from a 33 cl little into a pint glass, bottled in 2011. This a dark brownish tea color with a massive but short lived tan head with a significant amount if carbonation still bubbling up from the bottom. The smells are very present and strong, ripe fruit, plums, candy and toffee malts. The feel is thick and full of carbonation. The taste is good, lots of malts, small hop bite, ripe fruit, sugar and a notice alcohol flavor / burn.
