Murky nut brown pour.

Intense head of dried fruit, caramel, molasses, raspberry

Rich chewy mouthfeel with nice fine pearled carbonation lending a creamy dense texture.

Intense rush of moderately sweet fruit cake, raisin, roasted nuts, all balanced with a perfect hop note, wrapped in that creamy carbonation.

Hops, fruit cake, and a slowly rising boozy warmth on the finish. Outstanding!

Pours a cloudy brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong esters, sweet malt, alcohol, slight citrus hops, and sight yeast. Fits the style of a German Eisbock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong esters, sweet malt, strong alcohol, hint of caramel malt, slight citrus hops, and sight yeast. Overall, strong bodied, mostly esters and alcohol, and great feel.

11.2oz bottle coded 18.072 (early March 2018?) poured into a snifter at just above fridge temp 12% ABV. The beer pours a dense reddish brown with light khaki head. The head recedes to a thin cap and thick ring. The aroma is only slightly boozy with cherry, raisin, banana and spice all mixed together. The taste is semisweet cherry, raisin, banana puree with a mild biting alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is full bodied with plenty of carbonation, which was a surprise. The finish is undry yet not cloying. There is no discernable bitterness, but somehow the alcohol keeps the sweetness in check. Overall, very good. This is my first go with the style and I would probably prefer a base beer that wasn't wheat. That is personal preference and taste, the beer is really quite well made and enjoyable.

This dopple dunkelweiss bock is what I consider to be a benchmark bier--brewed by a top notch weissbier brewery. Top marks across the board which against others are evaluated in this style. This is not an ordinary dopplebock/dunkel weiss being of the "eis" variety. Love it. One of the few 8% or greater biers that I really like or love.

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.
