3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown/ruby; clear; tan head. A local beer to look at. Aroma is quite inviting as well. Bread and plums. Molasses, brown sugar, some vinous qualities; a trace of faded hops. Jam and berries. If this is what eisbocks have to offer, I’m going to have to track more of these down. Taste: sweet but not cloying. Some chocolate covered berries. Surprisingly little alcohol showing here. Layers of complex malt flavors, finishes somewhat dry. Full body, slick texture. More alcohol coming through as this warms -- eisbock is supposed to be consumed ice-cold, right? Becomes a little harsher along with that, but stays nice throughout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep dark brownish mahogany color with tan head. Lots of dark fruit character, plums, raisins, grape, sweet malts notes, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is roasty initially followed by big warming alcohol sensation. More dark fruit character comes through after, not overly sweet. More warming sensation even after a couple sips. Pretty good boost juice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Harsh syrup. Though, if I was to homebrew then freeze off the water, I would expect something along these lines. Pretty much what you would expect from a concentrated bock. Solid bock, though not great, and I’m all for alcohol, but it doesn’t make this taste any better.

Aroma: dark ripe fruits, caramel malts, intense sweetness. Appearance: very dark brown/black, small white head. Taste: heavy sweet. Palate: ripe plum, raisins, sweets continue heavily, complex flavour, medium carbonation. Overall: very nice Eisbock, not as refined as the Aventinus though, but still very good. Bottle from Kris Wines, London.

Bottle 33 cl. Black brown color with brown whitish fast vanishing head. Notes of some chocolate, earthy, raisins, bread, alcohol, malty, red fruits. Alcohol abit too much present. Not too bad. The alcohol and taste gets smoother after a while.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The quest for 5 continues. Draft at gingerman. Pours deep reddish brown with nice head. Nose of dark fruits and sugar. Tastes quite boozy and of raisins, caramel, cherries, molasses, and red licorice. Bitter finish. Slightly odd aftertaste.
