3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is basically an after dinner liquor. It’s not a beer you would ever want to buy a 6 pack of, unless you were having a dinner party, I bet this beer be tasty over vanilla ice- cream. This beer has a heavy, rich, molasses like palate. This Eisbok has a sweet dramatic honey, caramel, and alcohol flavor and nose. A very enjoyable beer if you are ready for a strikingly heavy and sweet beer.

My first Eisbock. I like it. Deep red-orange, with initially big and dense yet eventually diminishing offwhite head. Aroma of malt, dried fruit, and alcohol. Flavor has lots of dried fruit, cotton candy, some malt, and brandylike notes. No discernable hops. Full-bodied. Much more balanced and pleasing than the previous ratings had led me to expect. If I had tasted it blind, I would have pegged it for something Belgian.

This beer seems to arouse feeling for or against...Sweet,alcoholic,balance of flavour is good considering 11%. I expected worse (Crest Super) and was moderately surprised.

Yikes. So a beer really can be too strong. Who knew. Pours a bright orange/amber with virtually no head. Aroma is strong malt and alcohol. Medium-bodied an very syrupy. Kind of tastes like a cross between a barley wine and malt liquor. Finish is syrupy sweet malt and caramel. This beer is definitely strong enough for me to be feeling the effects after one bottle. You definitely have to sip this one, but unfortunately this beer is not really good enough to be worth that much trouble.

Very malty. Extremely alcoholic and violent. Like a fine port wine. This beer makes you blush.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sorry, but I will be the third consecutive person to call it definitely cloying. Big alcoholic beer that gives an uncomfortable feeling of not being anything except potent. No head, no balance, no thanks.
