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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home bought at Biervana. 19th April 15. This is a beast of a beer, poured cloudy dark brown, aroma is pungent, banana and yeast evident with alcohol. Taste is banana, almonds, dark fruit, cloves and evident alcohol. This is a real sipper and a heavy going, but rewarding beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Perfect amber color with nice highlights and a huge fine head. Aroma of toffee, malts, caramel, banana syrup. Taste is thick, more bananas, malts, spices, and a warming boozy feeling, but not unbalanced. Sweet, but it fits. Very smooth carbonation and the nice Weizen texture is still there. The perfect Eisbock in my opinion.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
BOD 8/26/14. Dark brown pour. Outstanding head volume, poor lacing and almost normal retention.
Wonderful nose of dark fruit (raisin, prune, date), hints of banana and clove over a rich malt base. As it warms, medicinal alcohol notes become dominant.
Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is world class and packs a wallop. It begins with a wave of dark fruit, that is mostly prune, over a clove background that is always present. As the prune fades, a balancing malt sweetness emerges. The middle becomes a bit medicinal from the alcohol and has a subtle bitterness underneath. As the finish approaches, malts make their strongest showing over notes of clove and dark fruit. The finish is a long slow medicinal alcohol fade leaving a pucker and burn at the back of the throat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Questa eisbock fa davvero il suo sporco lavoro. Colore marrone scuro con schiuma poco persistente, 12% si sentono tutti sin dal primo sorso, accompagnati dall’aroma e sapore di banana e frutta. Naturalmente molto dolce e caramellata.
