4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Faust Holzfassgereifter Eisbock has a thin, highly fizzy, cream-colored head of foam, little-to-no lacing left on the glass, and a hazy, caramel appearance, with some lazy bubble streams. The aroma is rich and intense: fruits (figs & dates), brown bread, syrup, caramel, malt, sweetness, and even hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is very heavy, syrupy, and cloying, and Faust Holzfassgereifter Eisbock finishes rich, boozy, and not particularly drinkable. Sip it. Slowly. RJT

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel-amber-brown light hazy colour with a creamy tan head. Noses of caramelised figs and dates with subtle notes of wood and roast almondy, dried fruits, alcohol aromatic. Sweet, full body, slick texture with flavours of vanilla, rum, raisin and treacle, yet with a short astringent hit. Long lasting finish, well balanced.
