COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Eisbock was lagered a full year and then frozen to incomparable smoothness. This is a big and complex beer, suitable for laying down or consuming immediately, serve at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. A few times a year, we will cut Dan Carey loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, UNPLUGGED. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. Eisbock is the first of our Unplugged series of beers.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Clear deep red - amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Smooth caramel malts, touch of cream. Tangy fruits and very mild spice. Light semi dry finish. A fruity caramel beer showing some age, but not bad.

WingmanWillis (130) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle share at Ken’s 20K. Thanks to the man himself for providing this. Pours red/brown with a very thin head. Booze and fruit in the aroma, taste is subtle with fruits, bread and a hint of booze. Not overpowering and a good one to share.

Scopey (12008) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle at Kenny’s 20K. It pours clear deep brown with pretty much no head. The nose is rich malty action, somewhat meaty, OXO cubes, oxidised, wood, earth and toasted brown bread. The taste is malt-driven, pretty sweet, brown sugars, meaty, caramel, light spice, fruit cake, old malt and dry wood with a dry finish. Medium - full body, fine carbonation and oily/chewy mouth-feel. Not a hug amount of depth going and it does taste a touch aged. OK.

Theydon_Bois (16475) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle split at Madmitch76 20K tasting, thanks to Kenny, 15/01/16. Chestnut brown with a moderate beige covering that quickly dissipates to nyadda. Nose is nutty, molasses, toffee, grain, airy malt. Taste packs more punch, dark fruit rinds, dates, caramel, malt loaf, toasted brown sugar. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close. Doesn’t deliver a great deal on the ABV but has held together fairly well and is a drinkable enough sipper.

Warming finish with notes of ripe fruits, dried berries, some bitter earth. Fairly subdued. Not bad.
