On tap at Ginger Man on NYC. My first eisbock and I am a fan. Malt and raisin are prominent in the nose. Sweet dark ripe fruit dominant the taste. Body is medium and carbo is soft. Nice beer of you are into these flavors.

Pours into snifter looking a lot like a Coke, including carbonation and quickly receding head. Nose is mostly malt with a touch of brown sugar. Tate is sweet - definitely get raisins and brown sugar, followed by the alcohol which I didn't find to be as well hidden as others. Only my second eisbock, and I liked the other more.

Pours a deep ruby color into snifter. Faints smells of raisins and a complex malt profile. The robust flavor shines more with raisins, plums, licorice, and intense toffee. Very sweet and malty. No doubt a hint of smoke in the finish. Oily and slightly dry in the finish as well. Exceptional Winter warmer. Not as complex in the nose which is where I deducted some points.

Very nice. Aroma of raisin, dark plum and a twinge of smokiness. Low carbonation, normal for style. Pours dark brown without much head or lacing. Finishes with light sweetness and a light touch of bitterness from booze. Bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Very dark brown beer with reddish hues and no head. Aroma of rich malts and toffee. Taste is figs, dark fruits, pontefract cake and rich syrupy malts. Medium bodied, quite sticky and low carbonation. Decent, but a let down on what I was hoping for.

On tap at RIBCO, pours a clear dark amber brown with an off white head, the aroma was super sweet with syrup and caramel and malt, too sweet for my liking in this style, the flavor was much of the same with dark fruits and tons of sweet caramel and malt, booze was evident in every sip, not my cup of tea.
