3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a hazy, dull orange color; minimal off-white head. Basic sugar, dried fruits, overripe fruits, and wet malts in the aroma. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; chewy dried fruits, basic sugary malts; decently tasty, and minimal alcohol showing through, surprisingly; but not a whole lot here for the level of alcohol Medium finish: breadiness, dried fruits, and some sugar.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I was pretty excited to find this at the bottle shop, but I am really let down. Tastes and smells like unfermented wort, sweet and just bad. Not much to it, thin on the palate, iím not really sure how to describe it other then stick your nose over your homebrew pot (before the hops) as youíre brewing and thats kinda how it smells and tastes. Sad and expensive, and I donít remember any beers that have cost this much and not enjoyed to this level. Maybe something happened with this batch? Iím not sure, but Iím not sure Iím willing to pay to find out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Sweet fruity malt but not the dark fruits I had expected. No alcohol fumes at all for 13 percent. Mildly sweet anf fruity. Notes of browned apple flesh. Light to medium body. I would have expected something bigger. Mild chest warmth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft @ brewery and again at uber (thanks to colin) - clear copper with almost no head; flat too with a thin syrup kind of look to it; aromas of alcohol, sweet malts and strange tartness; drinks thin and slightly hot at first; texture kind of like a syrupy juice; certainly on the strange side and kind of like a malt liquor

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 22 oz bottle courtesy of Colin at Uber Tavern, Seattle. Pour is hazy orange amber. No head really. Aroma of butterscotch sweet and some minty menthol. Taste of sweet floral menthol. The palate was really thin for an Eisbock. After taste was very minty.

22. Thanks, Colin! Crystal clear toffeeish medium amber with very thin tan rim. Odd menthol nose. Rich and creamy body. Nowhere near as big as most eisbocks. Caramel, toffee, mint on the mid-palate, with a mentholy finish. meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown with no head. Aroma is alcohol, pinot noir type note, caramel. Taste is light caramel, light alcohol, plums. Doesnít seem like 13% at all. Seems like it would have more depth also.
