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.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
Toasty amber colour. Aroma of sweet malts, rosehips and toast. Evocative of warm bricks. Sweet, refined maltiness. Toasty, toffee and even some slight esters. Still comes off as a bit light compared with the Eggenberg or old Niagara examples.

argo0 (11442) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Small, quickly dissipating tan head atop a clear copper body. Aroma is sticky sweet, toffee/caramel, cherry, almond. Taste is much the same, finishing with cherry cough syrup and a serious alcohol warming. As it warms, barleywine elements come forth. Full/medium body, almost no carbonation.

brokensail (10736) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Chris. A rare eisbock rake. Very dark brown pour with some reddish highlights. This one is done. Cardboard, roast, water, chocolate, and a touch of caramel. Mostly cardboard though. Flavor is papery, watery, and oxidized. Light sweetness of chocolate, dark fruit, and caramel. But again, mostly cardboard. Dead.
