3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark red with high carbonation to take any chance of a head away. Aromas of big bananas, big toffee, tootyfruity gum, just a slight hint of alcohol, caramel, and some coriander. Flavors of tootyfruity gum upfront, alcohol through the nose that clouds the flavors, toffee, slight banana, and light coriander. Medium spicy notes, alcohol light to medium in strength noticed through nose mostly, slightly sour finish, medium sweet. First Eisbock.

330mL bottle. Bottle number 2006/13313. Purple hued. Aroma of sweet toasted malt & a hint of malt vinegar (its an old bottle). Smells of mixed berries and yeasty esters. Whoa, STRONG. Complex malt flavors! Flavors of sweet fruit, bubblegum, over-ripened bananas, booze, brown sugar, sourness & toast. Lingering flavors of fruit on the palate. Thick & syrupy textured. It’s a German BarleyWine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma-Yeast, Banana bread. Ap. Black pour with a greyish thinness. Looks like a coca-cola. Medium head, large bubbles, non-lasting. WANG, but smooth. I was halfway through this beer very quickly. The Belgian Wang (yes I know the beer is German I’m about the Wang is Belgian ) eases into a smooth sourness. Tastes a little like "sour patch kids" if you know what they are. some sediment a very drinkable light carbonation. worked my way into this one. Wad not a fan at first, but really enjoyed it at the end. being my first beer I realized it has a nice kick. Wow 12 percent by volume now that I look at the bottle. Alcohol is masked well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brownish red. Little to no off-white head. Aroma is strong dark brown wheat. Flavor is dark wheat lots of bitterness and a hint of finishing sweetness. I don’t know why but these dunkels are just awesome. As for the ice brewing, well, it must be rewarding to conduct. And... its so smooth I thought it was 7%.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large light beige head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Savoury cured meat notes mix with Turkish coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate and spice, with cloves particularly noticeable. Concentrated dark chocolate and Turkish coffee up front slide smoothly into weighty, savoury flavours of cured meats and dark bread in the mid-palate. There is a touch of typical weizen banana and cloves, wrapped up in bittersweet cocoa, leading through into a savoury, spicy finish. This is one serious beer: an intense, concentrated blend of dark, bittersweet and savoury flavours. Excellent stuff.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Trüber, brauner Weizenbock mit reichlich Schaum. Hefiger Früchtekuchen in der Nase samt Gewürznelke und Kardamom. Die sehr konzentrierten Aromen setzen sich im Geschmack fort. Trotz der 12% Alk. gefährlich süffig und nur minimal spritig. N!ce!

Poured flat and muddy brown-but a fantastic aroma-think chocolate raisin bar with bananas and a selection box of other flavours-kept changing so hard to describe. Really nice taste and palate which again kept changing.

Deep copper, hazy, persistent off-white head. Rich bready malt, toffee, Munich-like melanoidins, raisins, figs, spicy clove phenols, light banana esters, warming alcohol. Full mouthfeel, medium/high carbonation.

Tap into sniffer. Muddy brown with dense off white head. Honey nose. Intense ale flavor with an undertone of sour, almost like a mild Flemish sour. Aftertaste pops the spot with a bit of lingering high alcohol sweet. Obscenely easy going for 12%

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Real wheatty taste, kind of a bread taste, you can smell the alcohol, 12%ABV which I love, gives it an extra kick. After taste is pure hoppy, not sure of the IBU but just a little high for this type of beer in my opinion. The appearance is just merky.
I love this beer, my favorite Eisbock.
