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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013/04/18 - Pours a dark ruby red/brown color with a thick, foamy tan head. Aroma is yeast, wheat, cloves, banana and dark fruits. Taste is yeast, spices, banana, and dark fruits with a sweet, boozy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with a warming finish. Less carbonation than expected, and a little sweeter than i typically drink, but I would definitely drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
