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!

11.2oz bottle

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.

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into glass. Date stamped on label is '17.087'.
Brown colored body, with reddish highlights when presented to light. Creamy, off white head settles to interrupted cap. Spots of lacing settle back into glass. Some settled particles at bottom of glass.
Aroma is sweet, boozy, dark fruit.
Taste is rich with candied sugars, alcohol, and dark fruit. Very tasty.
Heavy, and with syrup, mouth feel. Somewhat numbing from the higher alcohol.
This really tastes like a concentrated beer, with much packed into each sip. Allow to warm a bit, which brings out more flavors.

Nice on the nose. Great mouth feel. Big head initially disapates to leave little foam. A Little Tanginess on the finish.
