COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing in the land of fire and ice (The Eastern Sierra) since 1995 has brought us to this style of beer, where we use a long intense boil to concentrate color, flavor, and natural sugars. Then after fermentation, we freeze no more than 2% of the water content out of the beer. This concentrates the alcohol and smooths out the flavor for a true winter seasonal. Like a bliss of a "one swing stick" into the ice, this beer will distill your attention down to the single focus of the bend of your elbow. Fire and Eisbock will age well, but do drink one now to compare with our barrel-aged eisbock.

Very nice beer. Pours a dark ruby color with a khaki head. Medium to full bodied with a sweet and malty finish. Aromas and flavors of caramel, toffee, chocolate, syrup and some booze.

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.

Alphadelic (1908) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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.

AmEricanbrew (6331) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
2014 Xmas eve trailer park tasting extravaganza. Bright copper bronze color with tan head. Nutty, dark bread, earthy, herbal dirt, mild caramel aromas. Smooth medium body. Nutty, dark bread flavors with some toast, herbals, caramel, Mammoth house yeast____easy drinking dark lager, would not have guessed 10%----good.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
650ml bottle. Pours a chestnut brown color with a small beige head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild and understated with some vague sweet malts. The taste is sweet with syrup, brown sugar, and rock candy. The palate was medium and the carbonation soft. Finished short and sweet. Overall: Not bad, but not likely to win any medals either.

slowrunner77 (6935) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"Not much on the nose besides a boozy sweetness, but the flavor has a nice, sweet complex breadiness to it that is very pleasant. Mahogany colored, thin cap. 10% not overbearing. "

See through caramel color. Light caramelized smell. Roasted Smokey sweetness mellow for its strength. Leaves a light syrup coating behind.

beerbastard (773) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2013
22oz bottle from Mammoth lakes via some good friends. Pours clear mahogany red, with hardly any head. Malty fruity nose with a little honey and toast. Roasted flavors, with malts, not cloying but not as sweet as it should be. Would expect more alcohol presence. Very Clean and smooth, very good.
