4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Medium amber colour, moderate sponge toffee head. Oily body. Caramel, grapes, barley, booze in the aroma and unfortunately a little apple. Tastes like caramel cough syrup, which is awesome. Booze and sugar. Body is quite syrupy. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

lovely coloured beer, you don’t taste the rheinheitsgebot, it’s a little bit like a barley wine, nice colour

Quite frankly a big,sweet,boozy mess. Good thing I didn't pay anything for it. Love that alcohol/turpentine burn!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (notes from tasting session). Apple nose. Some alc hit, too. Sweet candi sugar & brown sugar flavors. Very much like a barley wine

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells nice with a heavy barley/malty aroma. It is a nice light brown with a small head that disappears quickly. Has hints of caramel and butter. Feels crisp on the palate. Overall, the beer is tasty but can’t drink more than one because of the heavy flavor.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cL bottle. Pours a clear brown with a small, fleeting, bubbly, tan head. The nose is intense molasses and caramel, with some vanilla, butter toffee, and antifreeze. The first sip is cloyingly sweet, and leaves a musty taste in your mouth. The finish is long, and warms your throat like whiskey. Heavy body, and sticky, clingy mouthfeel. This is a heavy malt bomb, with no subtlety or depth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep copper-hued clear brown body with a short-lived off-white head. Nose is intense caramel tones, similar to the Norwegian "brunost" (caramelized cheese), but also with raisins, marzipan, brown sugar and hints of almonds, syrup and vanilla. Taste is equally intense caramel and raisin notes, brown sugar, vanilla, port wine, almonds and hints of licorice. Alcohol is nowhere to be found, neither in the aroma nor in taste, which is highly impressive at the booming 11 % ABV. Very nice indeed, and though being a super sweet beer it never really tips over into cloying - at least not for me, as I have a well-developed sweet tooth when it comes to beer. :-) Full body, soft carbonation. Elegant stuff from Kulmbacher, and I think I prefer this to the more famous Kulmbacher Eisbock.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sorry this is not a beer for me. Way over the top on sweetness and alcohol for me and leaves a sticky aftertaste.
