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.

Ungstrup (32164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2005
An amber beer with a thick orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, alcohol, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, alcohol, and caramel, as well as some hints of over ripe fruits. Nice one.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of JCapriotti. Hazy, orangey brown with a tiny, beige head. Sweet, fat aroma of lightly burned caramel. Quite full in body with sweetish, roasted accents, some caramel and overripe fruit. Subdued bitterness. Smooth and delicious. 090407

Leighton (16259) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Big thanks to Ken himself for this one. Pours clear russet with a light, bubbly head. Mild aroma, light earth, dried fruits. Medium sweet flavour with notes of toasted bread, dried berries, light alcohol. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with notes of ripe fruits, dried berries, some bitter earth. Fairly subdued. Not bad.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle at Madmitch 20k tasting. Some oxidisation on aroma. Clear brown beer. Some light sherry character. Light cherry. Sweetish. OK.

Theydon_Bois (14958) - 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.

brokensail (14529) - San Leandro, 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.

Oakes (14042) - 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 (12636) - 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.
