Had this one at the Columbus Microbrew Fest.

My first foray into the style of Eisbock. I must say I am thinking of the old "Starship Troopers" movie, "WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE?!?"

Me: "Yes."

Well, this was pretty dark, a cross between a deep mahogany brown or light chocolate colored porter. No real head on this one.

Smell isn't very strong. Some sweet caramel malt and alcohol.

The taste was of lightly roasted malt, dark fruit (very subdued though), and the alcohol. They seemed to not be sure of the actual alcohol on this one. Said it was roughly 11.5% plus bourbon from the barrel (which confuses me now b/c the flyer doesn't list this as barrel aged). In any case, the guy serving made a comment about them having to somehow water it down to make it legal because last time it was tested it was something like 13%. Didn't taste quite that strong so I guess whatever they did worked.

This was an interesting beer, but nothing too extraordinary either. I'd like to try another eisbock down the road to compare though.

I had this on tap at Bob's Bar...Pours a light, clear, and watery light red with brown highlights...The aroma is all alcohol, its show through way to strong, practically burns your nostrils, I can't pull out anything else...The taste is light caramel but again all alcohol start to finish. This is not drinkable and a disappointing effort.
