330 mL bottle from World of Beer. The pour is a dark dark brown/light black with a thin tan head that fades down quickly leaving no lace. There is a little bit of a soda-like dissipating nature of the head. The aroma is a little malty with a touch of yeast. There is a resounding sweetness on the back end, but it's relatively good. The flavor is a little different. I'm getting a lot of Belgian notes in it, which is a little strange. The yeast and malt are just surprising for an eisbock. The mouth feel is nicely done with a good carbonation to it and just solid. The aftertaste is a little lingeringly bitter, almost like a black licorice.

Pours the same as Aventinus, tiny white head. Aroma is sweet, boozy, dark fruits. Well carbonated, sticky mouthfeel, long lasting after-taste. Flavor is banana, ripe dark fruit, malt, alcohol burn at the end. One and done on this bad boy. A cold-weather beer for sure.

Deep smell of banana, butterscotch, clove, raisins, plums and trappist inputs with added rum feel to it. A bit boozy. Taste is more intense on the dark fruits, raisin, butterscotch, dates and rum. Very intense and quite well masked, wouldn’t want another one though.

Drunk a few times. Had one last night while playing darksouls. gonna try a bunch of heavy duty beers while playing it cuz it seems like the perfect combo. takes the edge of my ragequits at least. so this pours a cloudy muddy orange with medium head tan head. aroma is amazing. banoffee pie, dried fruits, some orange. taste is similar. malty sweetness balanced with a big warming hit of booze and a slightly sour aftertaste. big body holds the alcohol well. its quite fizzy and feels great to drink. when i first had it i thought it was too strong, but now its one of my absolute favs. smooth and completely delicious

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown, beige head. Aroma and taste are full of fruits like banana, figs, raisins and plums, roasted but sweet malts, vanilla, clove, wine tones and a bourbon-boozy burn: quite complex, yet relatively easy drinkable. Lingering sweet aftertaste. Full body, (too) lively carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Great beer.
