Pours a hazy tan with dark head. Nose is sugarry with a candy raspberry smell. Taste is sweet, very smooth raspberry flavor, not too big or sweet, nice and fruity, lots of chocolate malt, tastes like a light raspberry cordial. Great desert beer, terrible session beer.

Tap at blind tiger. Poured ruby red sweet fruit nose syrupy a bit medicinal is it the best beer in the world? Maybe but maybe a bit too much like cough syrup. Nice malts sweet finish.

I believe this is a very special brew that is to be savored whenever it is released. It is priced steep but for the overall value and quality, it is well worth every penny.

Thanks to Wohlfs, saved the end of a growler for me. Has alot of vinous notes in the aroma. Flavor is really fruity but tough to place. Maybe a sour grape fruit punch is the best description I can come up with. Alot of alcohol present in the finish.

Big thanks to Wohlfs for the hand bottle. Poured a ruby color with a brown tint and minimal head. Aroma was fruity, of plums and grapes. Flavors again were fruity with some caramel as well. Finish had a spicey/bitter taste seemingly from the alcohol. Otherwise the alcohol was very well hidden for 13%. Light syrupy mouthfeel and medium to full bodied.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Deep red. Nose full of grape and sugar. Smells just like a glass of grape Kool-Aid, oddly enough. Flavor quite similarly is hugely of grapes, lots of caramel sweetness as well. Surprisingly prevalent licorice bitterness at the swallow which gives a very sudden dry finish, flavor is effectively gone at the swallow. Really like the initial fruity burst, but the bitterness at the end isn’t "eisbocky" nor is it particularly pleasant. Leaves kind of a sandy residue in the mouth. Is apparently normally brewed with the addition of raspberries, and that would certainly help here.

Tap. Hazy brown color. Slight brownish head fades out to nothingness. Rich fullbodied grain and alcohol aromas. Not as syrupy as I would expect for an eisbock. A touch winey in flavor with a bitterness that is felt throughout. Decent.

Dark ruby brown with a dissapating light tan head. The aroma is sweet, grapes, plum sauce (the kind you put on mu-shu pancakes). The flavor is caramel, grape, licorice, and a surprising bitter punch. The alcohol is there but it is not over the top. It starts nice but the finish is astringent. What this beer needs is raspberries! Thanks a bunch to wohlfs for the hand bottled bottle!

flemdawg (559) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Deep brown, muddy almost, no head but some off white bubbles. Sweet fruits(cherries, and other berries) also some grapes in the aroma. More fruits(grapes and cherries) in the flavor, some sweet sugary tastes and a hint of hops. Clingy feel, almost syrupy. Hard time getting into this one.
