Tradition reborn - Eisbock Kraftbier, a beer with patina, over 100 years old, once prescribed as a medicine for weak recovering patients - is currently celebrating its renaissance as URBOCK DUNKEL EISBOCK. Brewed with special dark malt and fermented with traditional Eggenberg yeast, this beer has a maturation period of up to nine months. Dark brown in color with an alcohol content of almost 10% by volume, URBOCK DUNKEL EISBOCK has a pleasant, full, and creamy body, with the aroma of coffe, surprisingly light on the tongue despite the alcohol content. Warming with toffee-like malty sweetness, balanced by a hoppy-bitterness in the finish, it is a power beer, as its traditional Austrian name says, best enjoyed after dinner or as an evening drink.

Cerveza demasiado potente para mi. El sabor de la propia cerveza se ve empañado por la fuerte presencia alcoholica, lo que al contrario que puede suceder con la Gordon, termina resultando una cerveza para tomar muy de vez en cuando.

Bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pours clear brown. Nose of brown sugar, licorice, yeast and toffee. Taste of toffee, brown sugar, light alcohol and sweet malts.

From the bottle, courtesy of Summer Secret Santa 2010, pours black with a thin tan foamy head. Aroma is malty with some chocolate, sour like a farmhouse ale. Taste is similarly Belgian-sour, white grapes, alcohol, candy sugar, molasses. Smooth, thicker than quaffable. Like a chocolate Farmhouse. Thanks Santa!

Deep red color but no head to speak of. Big caramel sweet nose. Huge caramel malt profile with a slight hop bite on the back end. Slightly alcoholic. Palate is full but lifeless. Uninspiring.

I had this beer on tap in D.C in a trumpet glass. The beer had a hazy brown color with a dark amber hue and a big, dark-tan creamy head that had average retention and little cling. The beer had a floral and grainy hops aroma with some notes of caramel malt and coffee. It had a sweet medley of flavors with very little bitterness. A creamy body which was fairly wet and smooth with average carbonation.

Darker brown color with some brown sugar, dark fruit, and molasses in the aroma. Flavor is quite sugary and very concentrated with dark fruit and coffee. Thick feel. The "eising" really makes this one tasty.

12oz bottle from mreusch. 7/8/08. Thanks Matt! Opened at alohaCs 2008 end of the year tasting. Super malty aroma. Tons of melanoidins amplified by the ethanol in the aroma. Sweetish. Not easy to drink. Not very good, but at least I get another eisbock rating.

Bottle, wetherel brought to our holiday tasting. Pours dark copper, reddish. Nose is sweet and weird and malty. Taste is cloing sweet and malty. I honestly could not finish this, it was too yuck.
