Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 1, 2007
Bottle courtesy of omhper. Pours brown with a thin tan head. Smells of spices, pepper and peaty. Tastes tarte with lots of fruity elements and a tangy finish.

Fukito (754) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 15, 2006
Bottle - December 2006, thanks Omhper for bringing this all the way from Sweden. Pours a deep mahoganny-ruby color wiht a nice, solid, rahter thin beige head and swift carbonatation. Aroma is strong molasses, burnt caramel, candy sugar. Taste is slightly acid, acrid, toasty, some sweetness and a hint of alcohol. Very complex and multi faced. Maybe it was starting to go sour, but it really suited this one... Mouthfeel is medium, fluid, stays in your palate. Very nice and intriguing.

thedm (4952) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 2, 2006
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that was long lasting and left behind a semi-opaque no visible carbonation brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was malty and sweet. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong vinous aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and vinous. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

jsquire (3508) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Deep orange color out of the bottle with a foamy tan head and a funky sweet raw grain nose. Thin malty sweetness in the flavor cut with a lactic acididy. The best before date was 0506, so it may have been passed its prime.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2006
(Bottle) Pours beautiful light hazy dark red. Small white head. Nuts and dark fruit in aroma with some alcohol and fudge/toffee. Barley-ish. Flavor is allmost like the smell but with a big unpleasant sourness. Malty body and ok afterbitterness. I have had better bottles of this beer.

gnoff (7942) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2006
(Bottle on RBESG 2006) Shady brown color, tan head. Chocolate scent, with some alcohol and red wine smell. Sweet taste with raissin and Madeira flavors. Low bitterness, sour mouth feel.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2006
Dark and hazy copper body mounted by a gentle beige ring. Strong caramel nose speaks of the concentrated malt and is accompanied by light alcohol hints. The slightly tart notes bring worry in my mind, while mysterious cork scents confirms that the better days must be behind despite its eisbock nature. Fruity pomegranante, apples and cherries concentration, thick molasses and added honeyed goodness may not all be derived from malts. Very sweet mouth presence, tartish cidery aspects. Slick bodied, light carbonation thus oily textured, very sweet and ultimately sticky. Past its prime with this sticky vs. emanating souring yeast developments unfortunately.

radiomgb (2274) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
Bottle shared by <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank> IPFreely, thanks Tim. Deep ruby in colour, thin off-white coloured head. Wonderful aroma of toasted caramel malts, dark fruits, some toffee sweetness and smoke. The flavour is slightly sweet, some plums, candied fruits, brown sugar, syrupy. Thin mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes sweet, lingering, dry.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
kramer (5038) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2006
12 oz bottle, via MrWalker. Pours a dark brown with a ruby glow under a creamy tight beige head with good retention. Light sediment in bottle. Aroma is thickly malty with some oxidation notes of sherry and light soy sauce. Flavor is malty and wonderfully oxidized with lots of port and sherry. A very slight tartness on the finish. The alcohol is there, but not overpoweing by any stretch. Mouthfeel is fairly thin from the high attenuation with fine lightly fizzy carbonation. This is a really enjoyable beer that has aged really well. It tastes to me more like an aged Dopplebock than an Eisbock, personally.

MartinT (7974) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2006
Impressions from a makeshift Canadian keller:
-Exuberant toffee candy and caramel shocks the nostrils at first, but slowly signal for dessert.
-Some tartness is there to offset the heavy caramel and honey fruitiness.
-Its sweetness seems to have been helped by a generous helping of honey.
-Mouthfeel is round and syrupy, pushing the sweetness onwards into dangerous extremities.
-There is no alcohol apparency, which I like.
-This doesn’t the complex maltiness of Kulmbacher’s or Schneider’s own eisbocks, partly because (it feels like) there is some added sweetness which doesn’t come from the malts themselves.

Bottle; best before May ’06.
