3.5/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Blind Tiger Brewery snifter. Served slightly chilled. Bottle number: "2012 09502".

A: Pours about a finger of thin white head which quickly dissipates to a thick cap and ring. Lots of carbonation which slowly built itself back up after the pour. Body is a clear burgundy.

S: Interesting nose. Strong port wine, salted meat (??), and sweet malts. Some warm booze does appear.

T: Strong port and sherry notes. Quite hot with sticky sweet malts. Some brown sugar and cherries. Almost like a huge aged barleywine.

M: Very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Low carbonation with a medium/full feel. Quite hot though. You definitely feel the abv on this guy.

O: A big, sweet, malty, and strong beer. As mentioned, like a big aged barleywine with no hops left. What was most appealing to me was the persistent head and creamy mouthfeel. Too sweet and hot overall though. Still, I can see holding back a few of these for an extra cold night.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Opaque brown color, short tan head, leaves no lacing

Smell: Dark fruits are heavy on the nose, cherries, plums, raisins

Taste: Mostly dark fruits, again cherries, plums, and raisins. There's some hints of wheat, banana, and clove. There's a little bit bread in there as well

Mouthfeel: Full body, low carbonation

Overall: Fantastic brew, you only have hints of its potency. I wasn't quite expecting it to be like this, but I'm glad I picked it up.

Had in Munich in a Weiss Haus...literally a perfect beer, if you like that sort of thing. Very dark, far mire so than the doppelbocks, and stronger than the many "ators" available (Celebrator, Optimator, Triumphator, etc.) due to extremely cold fermentation, I was told. Sweet but still distinctly German, unlike the wine-like sweet geueze of France or the barleywine old brown ale of England. Powerful, so beware.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Date: 4/29/14
Location: Beer Necessities
Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: Pours an opaque brown. Nice head pour. Small viscous ring.
Aroma: Deep dark fruit flavors, dark cherries grapes figs and prunes. Bananas as well. All in all a nicely sweetly smell. Only a hint of alcohol.
Taste: As the beer warms there is certainly more banana flavor but the other sweet fruit are certainly present.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is so smooth. A touch medicinal.

4.85/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Serving type - 12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance - Pours a perfect bronze with a small amount of cloudiness scudding around the glass.

Smell - One of the few beers I can distinctly smell that does not derive its' aroma solely from hops. Bouquet of shasta grape soda.

Taste - Despite the 12% abv, no alcohol is detectable on the palate. Tastes is sweet tangy fruit almost like like a toned down jolly rancher taste. Really like no beer I've tasted. While I've had my share of dopple bocks, and some of the thick sweetness of this eisbock reminds me of Spaten Dopplebock, it is truely unique. That being said, this is the first eisbock I have experienced. In short, it is a delicious beer.

Mouthfeel - In my opinion one of the highest traits of this beer. Slightest bite of carbonation on the tongue, leaving a stimulating tingle reminiscent of sensation of Irish Spring eucalyptus body wash on the skin. Beer is just a bit less thick than an average stout however thousands of tiny bubbles can be felt massaging the tongue and palate giving the drinker pause to savor and enjoy before downing this beast of a beer.

Overall - Delicious beer - excellent mouthfeel, taste unlike anything experience before. Worth $4.50 a bottle.
