The BA Eisbock is amazing - great balance of sweetness, malt, barrels - just superb. It's not on often, but if it is, do not miss out!

A clear mahogany in color with a tiny tan head. Aromas of fine whisky and Molasses. Taste is a rich molasses flavor up front, then a huge toffee component, followed by rich oak and a bit of bitterness to balance. Mouth feel is super rich. Overall a nice rich eisbock.

Served in a snifter, a deep dark ruby.

Aroma of plum, dark fruits, jam.

Tastes of plum, figs, sherry. Very reminiscent of a tawny port.

Full bodied, thick mouthfeel, moderate carbonation.

A magnificent beer that drinks more like a port with the high alcohol you would expect.
