COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Malty aroma. Very full mouthfeel. Rich, smooth, sweet, and slight alcohol in flavor. Reasonably well balanced.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2003 Heavy malt aroma with hints of molasses/caramel. Pours a dark brown with small white, mostly diminishing head. Strong malt and toffee flavors. Alcohol also noticeable, but it takes away from the beer only slightly. Very mild bitterness on the finish. A little light on the palate. Much better as it warms towards room temperature.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Sour malt aroma, deep dark brown in color. Little head. Toffee and molasses sweet. Very faint hop finish. Rather nice, definately to be served at cellar temperature.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Bottle: Aroma has malt and butter. Full bodied, thick oily and buttery beer. Sweet flavor with roasted malt, raisin, apple, peach and a lot of alcohol. Long roasted bitter chocolate finish. 7 4 7 2 13 = 3.3 Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Full malty aroma. Sweet but with a firm roasty malt character and in spite of the high ABV, a firm flowery hop character. Warming alcohol. Smooth and well balanced. Good!

I didn't find it a "light on the tongue" as the commercial description suggests. I found it pretty kicking on the tonge with an alcohol wallop and slightly medicinal quality. Pours nice with an appetizing head. It may really cure what ails you.

Thin clear leather brown appearance, minimal head and lacing. Starts off with a smooth sweet thick malt along with some toffee. Then some mild whiskey mixed with dirt. finished with a lingering smoky sweetness.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Deep brown/red color. I got no head here. Steady nose of crystal malt, mineral water, brown sugar, hints of alcohol and others. Medium bodied, creamy feel, hints of airyness making it feel lighter then it is. Flavors of toffee, sweet crystal malt by the boatloads but not overly sweet. Very subtle and well balanced considering its strength. Alcohol is felt but not obviously tasted. Very warming and tasty.

Soy sauce. Dark amber body, small tan head, and soy sauce in the nose. Extremely smooth mouthfeel, tons of kick in the finish, with a sweet malty body and some molasses, but without a ton of flavors coming through. A bit too sugary. I did find this quite enjoyable despite its weaknesses.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Clean clear amber brown color with a dark cream, sturdy head. Clean lager aroma, with malt and light toffee. A really nice warming strong bock - much like it should be. Smoother than alot of other eisbocks I’ve had. You can tell this one has been well lager.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2002
The pour a crystal clear deep ruby red, with a magnificent towering creamy beige head, which dissipates a bit early also thick glutinous sheets of lace that cling to the glass. Nose is malt, caramel, coffee, earthy, and quite sniffable. Front is sweet, the top reedy, the finish, WOW! as the alcohol hits you almost immediately, sparingly acidic, lovingly hopped, with a droughty aftertaste, ’The Quintessential Winter Belly Warmer’. I can see why they used this as medicine; it would jump start a ’Dead Guy’! Ranks #129 on my current 1000 beer master list.
