COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Braumeister Selekt. This Gordon Biersch creation applies Eisbock brewing techniques to a bock made primarily from malted wheat. Eisbock was produced using a technique created by a forgetful brewer from the Kulmbach Brewery in Kulmbach, Germany, who accidentally left kegs of bock beer outside during the coldest days of winter. Our modern-day process involves freezing the water molecules out of the brew and removing the frozen portion, thus concentrating the alcohol and flavor of the resulting ale.

bhensonb (10736) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
750 swingtop from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy dark ruddy brown with a tan head. Aroma of banana ester and dark "malt". Full bodied. Flavor is dark "malt", with definite banana ester. Finishes off the dry side - but a little sugar never hurts. It is an exceptionally tasty beer. Heat is detectable by the effect it has on blood circulation.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2013
750mL swing top pours with a deep clear mahogany body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet fruitiness in the form of dates and prunes and brown sugar coated figs with a thin ribbon of caramel rimming the aromatic experience. The taste is similar and is smooth on the palate with sweet ripe red apple that are lightly coated with brown sugar. It then heads into sweet notes of dates, figs and prunes. To midway some sweet caramel surfaces along with a malty note or two. This is smooth stuff with a well hidden ABV.

Braudog (5582) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a murky, dark reddish brown. The head is an initial fizz, then runs. The aroma is bready and musty. The beer drinks with some rich alcohol-laced fruitiness, raisin primarily. This doesn’t come with as much body or depth as I’d hoped. (#5213, 8/25/2013)
