Wow. Poured from bottle to tulip glass. Dark brown in color. Some foam, but not much. Big, bold aroma full of dark fruit, bread, and booze. Flavor is packed full of cherries, figs, dark bread, prune, toffee, caramel, and spice. Boozy finish, but doesn't burn - too much. Wonderful.

Poured from a bottle into a glass with sediment roused.

Overall, so hard to describe. A wonderful, complex brew. Top notch!

An opaque, light raisin brown. Head dissipated. A complex spicy and fruity aroma. Some dried fruits and fruit leather. A touch of tamarind. Alcohol in the nose and taste. Taste has more fruitiness, some bubblegum, and considerable spiciness. Ends on a caramel malt note. Sweet. Feels thick and chewy.

Can't find Kulmbacher Eisbock here in the US so I snatched this up when I saw it. Pours a muddy, dark pleasant brown that releases a steady stream of bubbles for the duration. Smells like raisins, figs, caramel, malt and some other stuff that I can't describe. Tastes of bready malt, raisins, figs and a good dose of alcohol as it warms, but hey, it's 12% ABV. Thick and sweet, but not too much of either. If you like a good German Doppelbock try this if you see it. It's like top shelf grown up Malt Liquor! Cheers.

From the bottle, it pours a brownish amber with a modest light tan head that diminishes soon to a nice ring and an island. Alcohol and malt in the nose. The mouth gets the warming rush of alcohol with a solid malt base. Nice! Dangerous!

Note: I think the bottle was older.

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!
