Poured into a Scotch style Thistle glass. I know it's not the appropriate type of glass for this beer but it is still a nice looking glass. The beer looks & smells great. This is a 2 year old vintage that I am drinking btw. The 12% abv is hidden well for a beer of its strength. I would not let this one come up to room temperature too much. It's better drank at a cool, but not a cold temperature. It taste sort of bananie from the yeast mixed with some sort of figgy, dark bread, sweet candied sugar, molasses type of taste as well. It's not the bes thing I have tasted but it is definitely not bad & well worth a try. I really dig the purple & silver label artwork. This is not something that I care to drink again & again but I would not pass up a freebie if offered. It reminds me of some Belgian Dark Ales that I have had in the past like Rochefort 9 or maybe it was Rochefort 8 but not as bitter as those tasted. Cheers! B (85-89) score range

Pours a cloudy, deep, dark mahogany coloration with a small, fizzy head. Smell is quite sweet and boozy, with a strong malt presence of dark, bready, caramel malt and rich dark fruit notes of fig and plum. Taste is quite sweet and boozy as well, being dominated by dark, bready, caramel malt and dark fruit: fig, plum, with a hint of toffee, chocolate and estery yeast notes of clove and banana. Finishes quite bittersweet, with a rich body and low carbonation. This really is quite boozy and only the fact that it's not as sickly sweet, being balanced by a certain bitterness, keeps it from being totally undrinkable. The flavour profile actually reminds me a lot of a 5 year-old vintage bottle of Tap 6 Aventinus that I had recently, but is a lot heavier and more boozy. If I want a high ABV sipper, give me a decent Imperial Stout any day over this stuff. Will definitely never have this again.

330cl bottle. Appearance: Dark Brown, Murky, with low lying khaki head. Aroma: Burnt Brown sugar, raisin, banana, and clove. Strong weizen yeast character. Taste: Very Rich malt sweetness. Caramel, raisin, black cherry, and even a touch of roast. Yeast character adds some clove spice and pear esters. Mouthfeel: Fairly heavy bodied, low carbonation, and a distinct alcohol warmth. Finish: Rich, malty, dark fruit and raisin dominate the finish with a touch of spice Overall: World class eisbock that balances a rich complex maltiness with the yeast character of a weizen and a well restrained alcohol warmth for a beer of this strength

Wow. Great surprise. I thought this would be nasty as I normally don't like over 11% beer, but it's damn good. Lots of dark fruits like plum, raisen, dates and a nice clovish (is that a word...yes it is) and hoppy after taste. Alcohol is VERY well hidden--be careful. This will put you on your ass!

Pours hazy dark amber red with a creamy light khaki colored foam head that settles to a thin ring. Smells like a grape lollipop with toasted brown bread underneath with layers of caramel and smoky molasses, dark fruits, cherry, banana, dark wheat, clove spice, with floral earthy herbal grass. Tastes like candied grapes, cherry hard candy, toasted brown bread, slightly roasted smoky molasses, mild chocolate, dark wheat, banana, dark fruits, caramel, clove spice, with floral earthy herbal grass. Feels medium bodied, creamy slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice eisbock.

I like strong brews but this one is so sweet it would hurt my stomach if I drank many.. Almost malt liquor sweet but with actual good flavors backing it up..

Big malt bomb with no hop or alcohol presence detectable..

Would drink again sometime for sure but one is plenty, on occasion.

Picked this eisbock today. It pours a small head. The colour is hazy dark amber. The aroma is syrup like with a hint of malt. The taste is strong, it has a watery syrup taste with very little taste of hops and a strong hit of grainy malt. Overall its nice and strong but not for me.
