On tap at Brouwerís Big Wood. Pours black with a red tint. and a small off white bubbly head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, toasted nuts and some caramel. Flavour of the same with some liqueur and vanilla. Full bodied, complex and lovely.

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.

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.

(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.

Aged in a Makerís Mark barrel. Probably a different listing, but whatever, fuck it. Someone else can add it. Wonderful sweet nose of vanilla, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, chocolate, dark fruit. Really sweet, but really nice smelling. Pours brown with light red hues, thin head. Mostly hazy, opaque or whatever. Flavors of bourbon to start, brown bread, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, brown sugar, and light wood. Sweetness is balanced and rounded out. Not cloying at all. I am not a huge sweet beer fan but this worked wonderfully. Good shit here, no hint of 10%. Solid fucking stuff.

From notes. Draft at the source. Hazy dark brown color, small white edge head. Aroma of vanilla and whiskey. Taste is chocolate covered caramel bonbons. Best tasting beer of the night.

This might be an alias of the Buffalo Trace version, if the only difference is the barrel. Admins, you make the call! Draft at the source. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, slight booze. Taste is smooth creme brullee. Decent.

Seems to be different from the regular eisbock, which is 10% abv and not barrel aged. Draft at the source. Hazy dark brown color, small white edge head. Aroma of vanilla and whiskey. Taste is chocolate covered caramel bonbons. Best tasting beer of the night.

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.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Tasted at the 4th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/14/2009. This Eisbock pours a medium brown color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, caramel and wood. A medium to full bodied eisbock. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and floral. There are a lot of different flavors going on here. Vanilla, wood, oak, nutty, malts all mix to make a very interesting beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Draft. Rich mahogony beer with a light tan head. Roasty, malty, and light caramel aroma. Caramel/toffee flavor with rich malt and some vanilla. Medium-plus bodied. Caramel and toffee lingers with some oak and vanilla.
