Poured into a Rogue pint and the brew in a clear dark brown with a 2 finger tan head that dissappears fairly quickly leaving just a trace of lacing around the edge of the glass. Aroma is heavy banana/clove wheat yeast.

Flavor follows the nose with the addition of heavy alcohol on the back of the tongue and throat. The fusel's are definately kicking hard on this one. Medium heavy mouthfeel, thickish, almost syrupy.

Starting to pick up some dark fruit, wheat, and the fusels back way off as the brew warms slightly. I also notice that the mouthfeel drops back to a medium level also (as the brew warms some).

This is my 1st brew of this style and even though it is a wheat eisbock, it is pretty spot on as far the description goes. A very nice sipper, or a gulper if your goal is to get shit faced quickly (not my goal). This is a great brew and I'll give er an A fer shure !!

Had this one on cask last night at the Copper Mine Pub.

Appearance: Pours a fairly dark and cloudy brown with a 1 finger khaki crown that displays some retention and lace.

Smell: Nice amount of both banana notes and clove, along with notes of caramel, raisins, and wheat.

Taste: Same as the nose but a little more subdued and with a mild alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel: Thick side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice beer on cask for sure...nice enough for me to order two of them :) Drinkability was good as the alcohol presence was well hidden. I'd like to have experienced a better mouthfeel though.
