Doghair's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Doghair (264) - Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Poured into a chalice. No foam to speak of. Not even a ring. Small formation of bubbles in the middle of the glass. Cloudy reddish brown in color. Smell is candied fruit and some malt. Taste is also fruity and sweet with a little alcohol at the end. It changes a little as it warms. Still fruity but less sweet more malt. Medium palate with light carbonation. Almost still. Overall a very good beer. Be not had much eisbock so it was enjoyable. Very complex. I might not have a palate capable of appreciating it. Definitely something I recommend trying.

This one was a little boozy for me, they didn’t hide it well. Very hot fresh. The alcohol has now calmed a bit. Sweet on the nose with some toffee. Bready and caramel on the palate, not much going in the way of the hop profile.

Been aging in the ’cellar’ for a year. Barely any head. Aroma is very sweet, malty, like fruit/floral, I’m not quite able to pick it out. A little sugar. Flavor is similar, but definitely stronger malt/sweet taste. Smooth, just barely dry finish.

Pours with no head. A few large bubbles. Nose is strongly malt nor much else. Flavor is the same. No hop presence. Very flat mouthfeel. Not a fan. Overall lifeless and weak ---Rated via intercellular device

islay (1251) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 2-27-13. Juicy aroma features red grape juice, plum/prune, caramel, and toffee scents. Pours a clear, brown-ish copper with a moderate amount of slow-rising bubbles. Produces a small to moderate amount of taupe head and good lacing. Sweet and boozy taste features pitted fruit bitterness. Prune, port, leather, caramel, and vanilla flavors. A hint of lemon sharpness. The taste improves upon multiple sips as I increasingly appreciate the complexities. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Moderate to heavy body. Thick, silky, and smooth in the palate. Overall, Eisphyre is a sophisticated brew.

BelgianBeerGal (3243) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Traded bottle. Cool concept taking a doppel and "eising" it down. Definitely an lagery, eisbock nose with notes of caramel and a touch of booze. Pretty classic eisbock flavor too: tons of molasses and brown sugar and a boozy finish. Thanks for not taking the 10 ABV over the top too. Well done in an underrepresented category.

beerbaaron (1347) - Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Thick amber color that matches its namesake. Small fizzy off white head, reduced to a little ring around the edge. Aroma is extremely malty, sweet, fruity I suppose. Flavor matches. Fairly full body, maybe syrupy. Malty aftertaste. Somewhat dry finish. Well made beer, but not my fav.. Re-rate: aged almost 1year. It has smoothed out. More balanced. Not as intensely malty sweet. Mellower. I do like it better.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
A murky mahogany colored pour with an off-white head. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. Some sweet apple cider, toasted malt, and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is quite sweet, but not cloying. Lots of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. A bit of raisin, some apple cider, and toasted bread. Very mild alcohol notes on the finish.

illiniphil (133) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Pours a reddish brown with virtually no head. Taste is cherries, malt, oranges and molasses. Mouthfeel is good but a little thin for my taste. Nice version. Is one of my fall/winter regulars. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
