Sweet malty grain and alcohol come from this clear brown brew with no head. Fine carb bubbles and sweetness with an earthy and chocolate under note. Surprisingly not heavy. Has a bitterish aftertaste with sweetness.

Bottle shared by Mart. Ruby red beer, small head. Nose is malt, fruity notes, booze, sugar. Flavor is sweet and plummy, dried fruit and some vanilla plus alcohol. Finishes with lots of warm booze and fruit. Very boozy, but pleasant.

Pour is a clear amber with a huge tan head. Aroma is a dark fruit with some brown sugar and alcohol. Flavor is a huge sweetness followed by a little raison but then comes another huge dose of sugar. I think the brewer added as much sugar as possible to get the gravity up as high as possible without thinking about how sickingly sweet this beer would turn out. I don’t have enough eisbocks to even compare this to another but this is a super sweet beer which will be a major hangover producer.

Bottle. Medium reddish-brown. Surprisingly large head for an eisbock. Aroma is light fruitcack with a touch of malty spices. Taste is really unique. Hints of spice, dry fruit that’s slightly sweet upfront with a light dry finish. A really tasty eisbock.

Mammoth Fire and Eisbock 2015, bottle and served in fussy snifter:
A beautiful pour that is crimson aber with a mostly lasting head... Very malty and earthy with a subdued fruitiness. I however find an off-putting corn’d lager tone about this that I just can not get passed. As malty as it is, it could actually use more for the mouth feel isn’t as hardy has one would assume an Eisbock would be. Is this brew horrible? ... Well not exactly, but it could have been so much better.

A beautiful, strong red brown. The nose is raisins and caramel. In the mouth it is smooth with a lovely caramel flavor. I really am surprised by this one. Picked it up in a random supermarket outside yosemite. Really nice.
