300 ml. draft in a dimple mug @ Biermuseum. Ruby dark brown with a creamy tanned head. Nose is sweet & rich in a lager way & feel with sweet dark fruits, chocolate, syrup, caramel. Taste is same rich feeling of syrup, dark fruits, brown sugar, chocolate, faint berries. Very rich & thick. Every bit as good as I hoped that it would be, excellent brew.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark, end of the SRM scale. Not much of a head. Aroma is definitely malty-sweetness, caramel. On initial taste, very cold temp attributed to med-high spikey carbonation feel in the mouth. As I let it warm to room temp, the carb dropped and viscosity became thicker. Left very little lace. Hops are absent on aroma and taste. High alcohol in taste and afterwards, left a very warming effect. I don’t drink a lot of Eisbocks but this one will be worth another purchase in the future. One in a session is good enough based on the high ABV.

Not much of aroma, just faintly ... grainy.
Flavor has some maltiness, actually pleasant. Bready, little sweet.
A bit too carbonated.
