4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good Spirits Co. Glasgow (330ml for £5.20):
Strong plum aroma and a lot of banana to kick things off, along with some figs and nice amount of alcohol. There is some raisins, a bit of bubblegum and a lot of spice up next, this together with some darker fruits and sugar. The smell of this one has a lot of depth and there is some clove making an appearance to along with some spice and grapes.
Chestnut brown with some deep red tinges and a huge foamy head that is very slightly off-white.
Alcohol to begin with but nothing overpowering, this is followed by most of what the nose promised. The taste consists of banana, cloves and dark fruits with figs, raisins and especially plums all featuring. There is some spice as expected and spice as expected along with a few malts. this taste is rounded of with some sweetness and a boozy alcohol flavour.
Full bodied and quite sweet with no bitterness and a fair amount of carbonation. It is quite boozy and dry towards the end and it certainly packs a punch.
The flavours where very well balanced and the beer went down better than I was expecting whilst still having to be sipped. The aroma was really something special though with each smell complimenting the previous.

Cervesa molt dolça on es nota la graduació alcohòlica, s’ha de prendre amb calma i si pot ser amb algun acompanyament.
Cerveza muy dulce donde se nota la graduación alcohólica, se tiene que tomar con calma y si puede ser con algún acompañamiento.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great beer!
Pours a dark brown colour with a small head that vanishes quickly because of the 12%, which may dominate for some people
It has a full mouth feel and the prominent flavour is dark chocolate.It is a well balanced beer which adds to it’s greatness.

Aroma is dark fruits, brown sugar, wild yeast and sweet wheat. Taste is a light sweet grain body, sweet fruits and a rich sweetness. A fairly substantial alcohol kick at finish. Appearance is a murky brown with a thin pearl head that retains poorly.

3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
This must be only the 2nd or 3rd Eisbock I have had, but they are constantly one of my favorite styles. The flavor is extremely complicated. It’s wheaty and super strong. It’s hard to go wrong with a 12% alcohol beer.
