75cl bottle, at home @10°C. Pours dark red color with a minimal head. Aroma of fruits and caramel malts. Quite berry-dominant, soft carbonation, dry malty finish. Alcohol not overly present. After the Aventinus Eisbock the best Eisbock I tasted so far.

ronaldtheriot (1597) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - AUG 9, 2015
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

McWorta (1136) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 9, 2015
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.
