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.

minutemat (4437) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle @ MTG II tasting at Rich’s Welfare Pad. Pours reddish brown, tan head. Lovely aroma with a soft sweetness and some dandelion. Sadly the palate doesn’t follow through, and although a lovely smooth beer with light fudge and sweet malts, it simply doesn’t have the richness, body or depth of a truly great Eisbock.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 Bottle from Ales by Mail, consumed at home. Mahogany brown, translucent with a small khaki head. Rye bread, prunes, strawberry jam, caramel and yeast on the aroma. Uncompromisingly sweet at first, but there’s some bitter notes from the hops in the long finish. Rye, fruit jam and sourdough in the aftertaste. Highly carbonated with a heavy oily body. And it is wonderfully and unabashedly boozy. A naughty sexy beer.
