People tend to think of Kulmbacher as the quintessential German Eisbock. It’s hard to argue with them. It’s boozy, malty, rich, fruity, syrupy, and will warm you right the hell up. The body has a beautiful balance between carbonation and full-bodied malt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz poured in a glass. Aroma is sweet vanilla. Flavor is rich and very sweet chocolate. No alcohol burn. Tasty. No offputing flavors, but nothing really great either. Honestly just bought to get the tick for an Eisbock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bubbily blackish brown with head that disappears pretty quickly. Boozy medicinal aroma. Really sweet caramel, raisins, hides the booze pretty impeccably. Thick body but goes down really smooth. Some warming with sticky heavy maltiness that hangs on the roof of your mouth. A nice dessert style nightcap but in all honesty not the best thing I’ve ever had. Love the story behind the style though. Personally I enjoyed the Aventinus eisbock more.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber with a rather light beige head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol and lots and lots of malt. Tastes of molasses, caramel, sweet malts, maybe a hint of prune, some alcohol. Not much bitterness to speak of. Warms the belly.
