4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
