Great eisbock, exactly as it should be: dark, strong, full-bodied without being heavy, rich, even complex. Notes to plums, raisins, marzipan, cake and liquor. Excellent with a dessert or a cigar; extraordinary by itself.

Tap @ Biermuseum Koln, large sample. Clear dark brown color with a reddish glow, short head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, molasses, caramel malt, hint of alcohol. Bit sweet, bit bitter. Nicely balanced and good complexity. Lovely classic german eisbock indeed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black bodied and small head. Thick brown sugar, bit if roast perhaps but mostly a concentrated liquorice sweetness. Taste is as expected from there on. Very sticky ending. For the abv it isn?t even too much, but generally speaking it?s sticky, sweet, alcohol and rich. It?s the style, but I?m not a real fan. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first eisbock! Pours dark with a thin large-bubbled lingering head. Appearance is oily like a red wine.
Aroma: booze, along with licorice with some banana and vanilla.
Taste: is that chinotto? Quinine? Booziness like a rum and coke. Vanilla and cherries. No hops noticeable.
Oily mouthfeel with lingering boozy aftertaste that’s almost chewy.
Slightly boozier than I prefer, but intriguing and quite tasty. Recommended.

Quite nice a warmer with a high alcohol content but not that noticeable. Ok maltiness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours murky copper brown with airy light beige head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit, and booze. Sweet, malty and fruity flavour, with a distinct alcohol presence. Shot-lived aftertaste but still OK for a decent Eisbock.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1" off white frothy head that dissipates quickly, low lacing. Clear deep dark ruby liquid. Aroma of malt, alcohol at first sniffs and after good swirl. Strongly sweet malt taste and low bitter, a small metallic taste detected on first gulp. Silky moderate thick body and warmth. Carbonation had some bite on tongue. Moderate dry astringency and sticky finish. Great strong beer example of the style but a bit much on the sweet side for me.
