L - dark chocolate brown.

S - nail polish, blackberry brandy. This shit is serious.

T - more of the same. Tart cherry, dark fruits. Warheads. Not as sour as I was expecting but overall well-rounded. Sweet raisiny syrup.

F - prickly, but smooth in part to the 10%

O - wild beer! Sour, wheaty, slick, and syrupy. LOT going on.

Poured from 330mL swing-top bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown, nearly black hue with very little light let through. There is no head upon pouring, which I don't love. Color is great though.

Smell: rich, dark fruits: raisins, dates and black cherries are all in the mix. It kind of reminds me of a very strong kvass. I like it quite a lot, actually.

Taste: shazam, this is a strong beer. Those rich dark fruits are all present, but with a surprising element of tartness in the works. Actually, this kind of reminds me of a Flanders-style kriek -- something I quite like indeed. Maybe not a normal eisbock, but a flavor I can really get behind.

Mouthfeel: moderately thick body with virtually no carbonation. It's OK, but really lacks a nice creaminess.

Overall: this beer's flavor was a big surprise to me. Although it has its faults, especially regarding texture, I quite enjoyed it.

A - Dark black with a hint of brown and a thin ring of bubbly head. Fades quickly.

S - Dark caramel malts, sour cherries and other dark fruits, acidity, oak, vanilla, and some booze.

T - Dark caramel malts, sour cherries, other dark fruits, acidity, some chocolate, oak, vanilla, and some booze.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, sour, and warming finish.

D - Interesting Eisbock. A bit off balanced and could use some carbonation.
