Kulbacher Eisbock, 9.2% ABV, 23 IBU. Pours medium viscosity, and dark brown, with a one finger tan head. Nose is fruity sweet and malty, with a hint of caramel. Taste follows, with a slight bitter close. Great mouthfeel, overall excellent.

11.2 oz. bottle

Pours dark maroon red with a creamy khaki colored foam head. Smells like sweet concord grapes, overripe plum, banana, spice, apple, pear, rich malty molasses, dark toffee, caramel, sweet dried fruits, with mild floral earthy herbal grass. Tastes like sweet concord grapes, overripe plum, banana, spice, apple, pear, rich malty molasses, dark toffee, roasted caramel, sweet dried fruit, with floral earthy herbal grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice and sweet eisbock.

Dark brown with a slim, off-white head. The aroma is malty, with a bit of roastedness underneath and a big alcohol nose. The taste is a little hot, with some sugary and roasted flavors. I get a little plastic as well, and some background peppery spice. Full in body. All in all, it is strong, flavorful, but not well put-together.

Draft...if you don't have real beer on draft where you drink out...go somewhere else.

This is almost perfect bock....if you like malty strong brown beer ...look no further

A: Looks like cola, no head.
T: Nice. Innitially quite a harsh grainy flavour, like 1845, then a fair whack of syrup and marzipan. Not too sweet. Quite light and probably once very fizzy. A slightly unfamiliar combo for me as I associate syrupy beers with gloopyness.
O: Not a bad little treat, but not worth sorting after.

Poured from draft into a snifter. Rich dark brown color with great head and beautiful lacing. Smell is sweet and the taste is of cola, dark grapes and raisins. An interesting sweet flavor that is very pleasant in cool weather. Had it over Thanksgiving weekend, writing from notes.
