First eisbock! Dark, malty, fruity. Wow this was good. The 11% really snuck up on me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pours a very dark redish brown with a very small shrt lived head made of quite coarse bubbles. Nor is there any lacing. Aroma is a very yummy dark sweet, raison, spice and dark malt. Flavor is a sharp spicy, dark rum type taste. Carbonation is very lively and the feel is heavy and smooth. The high ABV is redily apparent and the fizz gets in the way of some of the flavors I think,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with some reddish hues, minimal head. Aroma is prevalent but not very complex, with a strong, almost "mediciny" character. Initial taste is sweet and malty, but with a strong alcohol presence which also dominates the finish. The body is decently full. Overall, there seems to be very little masking of the alcohol taste, which unfortunately covers any complexity that would otherwise be discernible in this fine beer. This is most likely the reason why Schneiderís Weizenbock is more highly rated.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: deep, dark brown body, bordering on purple, with a large, blooming, bubbling head of foam.
Aroma: most impressive: wide, vast, brimming with fruitiness, contains the aspects of a good Bavarian weizen, then widened, and filled up with alcohol and medicine. Fruity, yet stinging...sweet, delicious, spicy, tantalizing...
Taste...fantastic texture, floods the mouth with flavor, excellent weizen graininess, raisiny, figgy fruitiness,doubled up with richness...each gulp brings waves of sensation...I find myself liking this more as I go...itís punishing, though, flavorful, yet stinging and slaying, a serious threat to sobriety...
a bold attack on the senses...the perfect nightcap...just the thing to knock me out and send me to Slumberland.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Degarth for this one. Pours deep turbid brown with a huge, foamy, overflowing white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, hops, and tons of dark fruit. Tastes malty, with dark fruit, toffee, and cabernet at the finish. Medium, firm palate. This beer is awesome, and i didnít taste a lick of alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
almost as good as the weisenbock. Deep brown with banana and cloves. Typical of the brew. Malty as well. Maybe a bit too much alcohol because all the nice fruit tones are drowned out. Excellet regardless.

Ripe bananas, raison, rum, and malt nose. Carries over to the flavor iwth spicey banana bread, bubble gum, andwarming alcohol. Finishes with more banana and alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 A rich brown body with a thin light brown head... then an acrid, bitter aroma.. which I kind of liked. It makes a thick, rich mouth-feel with a caramel maltiness. The finish is surprizingly clean, considering the thickness of the brew. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Positively loads of yeast ... great big globules and hunks of the stuff. Nice murky brown color. The aroma is loaded with bubble gum and grape Koolaid. Tons of maltiness, some astingency from the yeast, overbalanced towards the sweet end, the alcohol isnít perceptible. This is a beer that I enjoy in spite of me.

Pours dark amber, almost no head. aroma doesnt get you excited, but the flavor makes up for that with malty sweetness and some complexity. very smooth for the ABV. Nice beer, a bit overpriced.
