This beer pours a beautiful rich and extremely cloudy brown with reddish tones when held to the light. IT is so cloudy as to be impenetrable to most light. The head is tinged off white, shallow and tiny bubbles that leaves almost no lacing down the glass.

The nose is spectacular with a very fruity dominance that has strong notes of bananas, alcohol, malt, vanilla and apples.

The taste is smooth and clean with a very sweet malty flavor that is not as fruity as the nose but definitely has some nice complex flavors that are suppressed by the higher alcohol content. Among the classic bread notes and sweet malt there is some subtle apple and banana with a nice yeasty flavor that is super rich.

The mouthfeel is nice and rich and covers the palate so that the full experience of the beer is there to be enjoyed.

Overall this is another phenomenal offering from Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn. Everything they do is exceptional and this is no exception. A perfect example of a an eisbock. I highly recommend trying this one.

What an interesting beer! A very woody beer that shines with french oak notes. This is bottle 124 of 688 made. The abv is there but smooth, it's very strange. If you can find this brew...grab it as it is very rare. The beer has flavors going on that I can't put my finger on, just a complex, smooth Eisbock.

Bottom Line: rare interesting beer.

A - Midnight dark brown that is opaque with lacing on edges of flute.

S - Fig and winter farm smell. (very clean.)

T - Consentrated and heady sweet dry stone fruit that is enjoyable with each taste.

M - Warm coating of sticky alcoholic jam.

O - Figs not raisins define this wonderful example of an eisboch.

Bottle 365/688.

The beer displays a dark brown / burgundy body, appearing nearly still. Nice aroma, featuring port, sherry, oak, dark fruit, plums, figs. Smooth and complex. This one drinks like a port wine or after dinner digestif. Alcohol presence is there, but not overpowering by any means. Light to medium in body with no carbonation. A fun beer to sip and enjoy.

Bottle poured into tulip glass

Dark brown liquid. No light passes through. No visible carbonation. No foam , no lacings.

Aroma of wine, plum, fig, raisins and alcohol.

Taste of raisins and figs. Sweet. Reminds me of sherry or a tawny port. Definitely a sipping beer. Deep, rich, sweet and intense. Smooth , slick start. No bitter aftertaste. Heavy, thick mouthfeel almost syrupy. Chewy.

This was a recommended pick from my local craft beer store geek. Although the bottle is 11.2 oz, I suggest you share this in sherry glasses and not a full glass pour. Very rich. Would be a great after dinner beer to share with a group of friends.
