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.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Pours a dark malty brown with a very thin light white head. Smells of dark fruits, cocoa beans, and caramel. Very nice light chocolate and dark malty blended flavor. Some burnt roasty malts definitely are detectable in the finish on this one. Very smooth and easy drinking for almost 10%, I was surprised. Good job.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2007
11.2 oz bottle, Stateline Liquors. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown under a fairly small fizzy light beige head that receded to a thin ring. Nose is thickly malty with alot of caramel and toffee, some alcohol, and coffee. Very syrupy smelling. Flavor is toffee and dark fruit dominated up front fading to a warming alcoholic finish with a touch of light oxidation. Alcohol is there, but not overpowering. Alot of coffee and light roast emerged as it warmed. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with a sticky finish that was thinned a bit due to the alcohol. Carbonation is moderate and slightly fizzy. Pretty nice and quite different from some of the other Eisbocks that I’ve had. I liked the coffee and roast aspects and the alcohol was not very apparent.

shrubber85 (7314) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle. Walnut/pecan malt and alcohol aroma. Medium brown with slight head. Sweet nutty malt and coffee flavor with moderate alcohol and hops finish. Pretty sweet but not cloying. Very nice and much better than Samichlaus.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2007
Propably the best beer I tried in Austria. Chestnut color, rich aromas of malt,caramel,coffee and spices. Sweet and malty flavour, very nice finish. pretty good beer.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2007
(11.2 oz bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maryland/baltim target=blank>Wells Discount Liquors) Excellent...Pours darkish tea brown with 1/2" of light tan head. Aroma is excellent - malty, raisiny, sugary sweetness. Mouthfeel smooth, full, very lightly sticky in finish. Thin rings of lacing. Flavor is just big malty brown sugar and raisins with that German sort of light smoky malt note through finish. Yummy. Classic.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 On draft at De Paas, The Hague. Clear maroon-coloured, almost no head. Malts, molasses and caramel. Bittersweet long-lasting finish. Pretty heavy. (3.7) Re-rate: Bottled version. The last beer of the evening, and a perfect finisher. Heavy and complex. I guess i like the bottled version better.

caesar (4946) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 Tap, ABT Dec 06. Clear light brown color, short off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and malty, almost cognac-like, hint of vinegar, fruity. Very sweet taste, sugar, loads of malt, toffee, slightly sour. More like a barley wine. Not bad, but still I prefer a regular belgian double.
