Drank on tap at Sail and Anchor, Fremantle.

A - Pours a deep copper red colour with asmall head of Ivory that reduces to film quickly.

S - Sweet steewd cherries and some decent spicey malts going on here. Very nice indeed.

T - Taste of sweet stewed fruits and a nice accopanyment of spice and burnt caramel.

M - Medium body and low carbonation.

O - A very enjoyable brew that suprised me a lot.

Pours a rich burgundy colour, looks pretty much like red wine. Minimal head and beige bubbles. Nice colour. I like head on my beer but I've so come to expect a lack of head from bocks and other bock variants.

Nose is pleasant indeed. Red wine characters with nice German yeast spice, clove and anise characters with some cola character as well. Maybe even some mustard? And a hint of petrol as well. Awesomely complex and very powerful. Hell of a lot to offer.

Taste is quite dark, with cola and cherry notes, plus a lot of spice which takes on an Asian kind of character. Cinnamon, cardamom, five spice, some very distinct shiraz notes as well. Quite like a good red wine, lots of spice and pepper. Complex, interesting and very tasty.

Mouthfeel has a lot of boozey texture, it's clearly quite alcomoholic. Strong with quite a lot of warming burn as it goes down. Plenty full and thick but great texture, just slides down with all its flavourful tastiness.

Dangerously drinkable. So complex but nice and smooth. Australian breweries - more Eisbocks, I say!
