4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It poured about an inch of white foamy head that died within a minute. The body was extremely dark which caused no carbonation to be seen rising. The lacing was lightly speckled, but intricately stayed together for a good two minutes before it spider-webbed, very impressive. The lacing eventually died, but it took a good five minutes before it all died. The smell had mainly raisins, plums and cherries - mainly balanced between the three. Some sweet malts enter in at the end. The taste was extremely rich with some molasses and the raisins, plums and cherries come back but just enough to remind you they exist in this beer. The flavor was extremely well balanced. The palate was about a medium with a good fullness to it. It could be the ABV, not sure? Overall, this is a very nice eisbock that I would come back to.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet grainy malty aroma with a good deal of dark fruit. Pours very dark mahogany with an off white head that fades fairly quickly leaving faint residue on the glass. Sticky sweet. Malty. Fig, prune. Nicely boozy. Clean with a fairly thick mouthfeel. This is a really nice beer.

Oily rich. Spicy and fruity. Warming. Very Christmasy. I quite like Eisbook actually. I like the fact the alcohol isn’t hidden. I should drink more of this style.. in December.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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)
