Bulk_Carrier (2266) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - DEC 20, 2014
On tap at Glacier brew house. This was poured into a wine glass. The appearance was a dark brown color with tinges of hazy reddish purple along the sides of the glass. The smell had a big boozy burst of brown sugar and sweet dark fruits. The taste copied the smell and confided in a sweet sticky caramel aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a pretty good sipping quality about it. Light vanilla rolled over my tongue nicely. Overall, I say this was a pretty good eisbock. The ABV is up there but doesnít hit you too hard.

Duchammer (68) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - DEC 19, 2014
2012 Buffalo Trace: Poured a burgundy with a quick diminishing off white head although it was carbonated perfectly. Aroma had light oak hints of vanilla molasses plum. Taste had a smooth malty vanilla fruity like plums, dark stone fruit. Nice warming in stomach.

furthur (211) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 14, 2014
2012 buffalo race barrel aged sampler at 12 days of barley wine.opaque brown beer, faint ring of foam. Aroma of dried dates, molases, and licorice. Taste is dates, licorice, vanilla, caramel, cola. Body is rich, thick, but carbonation is good, fine. Finish sweet.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2014
On tap @ FoBAB 2014. Pour is cloudy brown with a very small khaki head. Aroma and flavor of burnt sugar, vanilla beans, roasted malt, charred oak, and caramel. Finish has some added peat and toffee.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2014
6 oz pour at the brewpub, noted as aged 6 months in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels and Smith Madrone wine barrels.. Hazy, deep amber with minimal head and lace. Nose is dark fruits and sugars. Heavy body with light carbonation. Caramel, plum, vanilla, toffee and some raisiny tart sweetness most likely down to the wine barrels. Finish is very caramel-sweet, with some stomach-warming alcohol, but this beerís 10% ABV is well-hidden. Fantastic - an eisbock never imagined by German brewer.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
(Draught) clear medium ruby brown, light clear offwhite edge bubbles. Nose of rum raisin, light whiskey, graham cracker, rich and pretty decadent. Taste of rich raisin, caramel, big whiskey barrel, a bit alcoholic but thatís not a bad thing. Very true to style, quite good. As good as any Iíve had.

MikeJslc (759) - USA - DEC 12, 2013
Deep copper, clear, tan head. Rich and malty with a bready, toasty character, dark fruit, nutty notes, a little toffee, smooth and warming, with an up-front Beam barrel character, but not hot. Marriage of huge Eisbock malty flavors and barrel character is perfect. In addition to the Beam barrel version (2011) I had the 2010 Buffalo Trace, which was similar, but had a little spicy, earthy wheat character and hints of dried cherries and leather. These were complex and delicious barrel-aged eisbocks.

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. There was a big difference between the barrels, but they were all amazing. The Jim Beam was coconut, raisin, malty, fruity, burnt sugar, bourbon, and cherry. The Buffalo Trace was dry, malty, wheat, cherry, with a lot if warmth. This beer and itís different barrel incarnations are insanely good.

AmEricanbrew (6008) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Clear dark amber color with light tan head. Very nice fresh oak, toffee, brown sugar, dark bread aromas. medium body, soft carbonation. Oaky vanilla, brown sugar flavors with dark fruits, yeasty dark bread--most tasty bock brew
