hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy orange lager with a small, fizzy, white head that dissipates almost immediately. Rich, fruity aroma. Honey and black cherries rise from the glass... light apricot too. Surprisingly thin for the style and accompanying high ABV. Medium to full-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and seltzer-like carbonation. Medium sweetness, mildly acidic and lightly bitter. Drinks like a 7% beer, but I do have a small buzz after only ½ of a glass. Crisp, mostly clean finish. Sort of refreshing... never thought I’d say that about an 13% eisbock. Odd for the style, but very good overall. Kudos to explosivebeer for shipping this one from the Northwest!

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2008
22oz bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland. Hazy dark brown and wheat colored body. Nose of faint and dusty, minerally yeast, boozy alcohol and wet bread with a touch of over-ripened oranges. Flavor is bran, corn, toast, booze, heavy caramel and chewy, soggy old and damp grains, a little putrid even, finishing with some sweet corn and heavy caramel. Not good at all, sorry to say. It’s a boozy caramel apple mess.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
2008 Bottle via a trade with scrizz, thanks Clint. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon, lightly sour, caramel, cinnabun and fruity. Taste is tart, fruity, caramel and not really that bad for an infected Baron beer. Actually, the malt melds well with the tartness. Creamy carbonation.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2010
2008 bomber. Poured near-clear honeyed-orange with just a ring of loose bubbles for head. The aroma picked up sour fruit skins and white wine vinegar the whole way through, darker fruit and caramel backing.. overly sour, and I don’t think it was supposed to be (but it sure masked the alcohol). The flavor was quite acidic with sour fruit skins throughout the drink.. caramel, molasses, and a little brown sugar at the core.. just a little black peppery alcohol on the finish, but again the sourness masked the boozage. Medium-bodied with very low carbonation on the palate.. sour throughout, and scorchingly dry on the finish.. it seemed infected, but it sure held the alcohol in check.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle thanks to 5000: Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of light caramel malt and lager yeast with some tart strawberry notes that seem reminiscent of an infection. Body starts with decent fullness and caramel toffee sweetness with some peppery alcohol and lightly tart fruity character. Pretty easy to drink, but could be modeled off a better base beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle:   Dirty caramel in color, somewhat muddy, thin dishwater like head, falls quickly, no real lacing.   Almost appears still. Bready nose, slight alcohol and caramel.   Bready on the tongue, slight immature grape with very little fig/date that I associate with the style.   Doesn’t taste like an Eisbock, but moreso a higher octane Maibock.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly average.   Hard to believe this is 13%.   Lingering breadiness.   Seems rather simple.   Not as complex as I would have expected.   Not bad, fairly simple beer.

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.
