This is one of the best beers I've had in awhile. Maybe its just because this is a bock beer and most of what I've had here lately have been ales. Maybe its because I'm in Korea where the domestic beer market leaves a lot to be desired. Really though the beer has an excellent mouth feel. An appreciable amount of carbonation, easily twice what I see with an IPA. This is of course a Lager beer and not an ale beer. I sampled this at the local bottle shop and it wasn't real cold. To be honest I got more of the flavor when it was a few degrees warmer. I'm happy that I spent the money on two of these. It's over all a great change of pace for me.

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.
