Alcoholic. No, not me, this beer. More wheaty than I’d expected. And what’s that.. cocoa at the finish? Plums? Jesus, I’d give it a 6 for being complex and pretty different, but it’s just a smidge weird too. Quality nonetheless.

Pours a deep brown/amber with a short tan head and lacing. It has an aroma of dark fruit (plum, some apple) and malt with a similar flavor profile that is malt and plum up front with a semisweet, syrupy finish over a medium-heavy body.

Smell of syrup, caramelized sugar. Dark copper colour with a twist of red, plentiful mid-brown head. Looks like a trappist. Aroma of cough mixture, cognac, sugar, syrup. Slightly burning alcohol sensation. Sweet with medium bitterness on the side. Medium carbon.

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.

Botella 33cl en CerveZeres. Cerveza oscura de espuma ligera, mucho cuerpo y un sabor tostado y amargo. No decepciona en absoluto

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.

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.
