4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle # 010586. Well I opened this bottle, fresh from my celler @ 55F, and made a mess on my desk. Lots of carbonation. Head settled quickly. Big aroma of bananas, yeast and glue or nail polish remover, (hey they both smell good). Or perhap bubble gum. Color is a hazey, ruby-brown. Taste is rich with malts, sugar and that bubble gum flavor. Finish is dry and like a wheat beer. Leaves a tingle in the mouth.

Bottle (#007845). A dark cloudy brown color with a tan head. Strong alcohol presence in the aroma with raisins, dark fruits, and a nice spice. Piercing warm alcohol in the flavor with a thick coating fruity finish.

very intense. alcohol is present, but no liquor tasting, more filling the mouth and feeling it down your throat. surprisingly and pleasantly smokey in aroma and taste. the strength, smoke, and sweetness of the wheat makes this a must try. though best shared. ouch!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2004 Sampled both one and two year old vintages. Murky dark brown body with notable viscosity and a thin fizzy head. Contains, large, scary chunks that resemble flecks of clay. Fragrant malty aroma includes raisins, roasted figs, molasses, and ethanol. Flavor is of prunes, cola, yeast, and high octane alcohol. Syrupy mouthfeel. Makes me think I’m drinking a prune juice and Coke cocktail. I much prefer other eisbocks like Kulmbacher and Castle Eggenberg over this one.

Thanks to bigbadbear63. Nice dark brown color, fruity, sweet, and somewhat warm aroma. I tasted some candy sugars, fruit, and alcohol. The finish was nice and smooth, with a hint of sweetness. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit.

The aroma is sweet of raisins, fruit, plums, and very faint hints of wheat. The color is a clear brown and it has a beutiful light brown head - and is served in a very beutiful glass. The flavor is very sweet with notes of raisins, wheat, plums, and other fruits - a little too sweet for me. It ends on slightly wheaty note with the alcohol hitting you right in the end - but then it gives you warmth in the cold of winter. It has a good palate.

Dark brown with red glints. White head. Aromatic, fruity nose: plums, raisons, currents, black cherries and alcohol. Flavor is raisons, figs, currents and candy sugar. Goes down smoothly for a high octane beer.
