Pours a caramel brown color - clear and effervescent. Thin fizzy off-white head dissipates quickly leaving just a minimal amount of foam.

Smell is both boozy and sweet with notes of grain, candied sugars, dark fruits, and a hint of wheat.

Taste follows the nose with hints of dark fruits, candied sugars, cherries, wheat, grain, and lots and lots of booze. Bit of a burn from the alcohol with a warming sensation present as the beer is consumed.

Feel is almost syrupy and thick but not heavy. Mild carbonation. Sweet finish coats the mouth.

Overall this is widely considered to be one of the best, if not the best, eisbock out there. Its certainly a well crafted beer - its just a big boozy beer that isn't so much my wheelhouse. Glad I tried it though.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a dark brown with very nice whitish head. Good retention. Nose is definitely full of wheat, as in a hefeweizen. Getting some plum and candy as well. Also getting some red grapes and banana. Taste is super smooth and sweet. Getting wheat, caramel, candy, sour grapes, and even a bit of citrus peel. Nice mouthfeel as well - medium bodied. Overall, a great beer.

Look: Cloudy brown. Tan head dissipating quickly.
Smell: Caramel, malty sweetness.
Taste: Super sweet. Caramel. You can taste the underlying alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Packs a punch on the tongue. Feels oily in the mouth. Finishes with a touch of dryness. No hops to speak of.
Overall: Great beer to share with a friend. Sweet and smooth.

The appearance was a nice dark brown to almost black color with a decent one to two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds and ends up leaving a decent amount of foamy lacing. The smell was wheaty yet had a nice allocation of dark chocolate malts and some nice banana coming out to assist in a wonderful aroma. The taste was basically sweet through the chocolate and banana and the wheat ended up backing all of that up in a decent manner. There was no aftertaste and yet there was a slight dry sweet banana finish. On the palate, she sat about a medium in body and wanted to show a decent sessionable quality to it, but for the most part, it really wasn’t. I sipped this and enjoyed it thoroughly that night I had it. Overall, super nice Eisbock well worth my time and money.

Brown color, beautiful off-white foam, not longstanding.
Full and entrancing smell, with dried fruit, candy fruit, raisin, malt and caramel.
A bit of alcohol, but it's 12%.
A lot of dried fruit in the taste too, plums, caramel, toffee. Full and challenging. And still a weizen.
Alcohol quite well hidden after all, but it is definitely a warming beer.
Somq liquorous notes, porto-like.
Again dried fruit in the aftertaste.
Full, challenging, structured. But satisfactory.
