4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home bought at Biervana. 19th April 15. This is a beast of a beer, poured cloudy dark brown, aroma is pungent, banana and yeast evident with alcohol. Taste is banana, almonds, dark fruit, cloves and evident alcohol. This is a real sipper and a heavy going, but rewarding beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Perfect amber color with nice highlights and a huge fine head. Aroma of toffee, malts, caramel, banana syrup. Taste is thick, more bananas, malts, spices, and a warming boozy feeling, but not unbalanced. Sweet, but it fits. Very smooth carbonation and the nice Weizen texture is still there. The perfect Eisbock in my opinion.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
BOD 8/26/14. Dark brown pour. Outstanding head volume, poor lacing and almost normal retention.
Wonderful nose of dark fruit (raisin, prune, date), hints of banana and clove over a rich malt base. As it warms, medicinal alcohol notes become dominant.
Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is world class and packs a wallop. It begins with a wave of dark fruit, that is mostly prune, over a clove background that is always present. As the prune fades, a balancing malt sweetness emerges. The middle becomes a bit medicinal from the alcohol and has a subtle bitterness underneath. As the finish approaches, malts make their strongest showing over notes of clove and dark fruit. The finish is a long slow medicinal alcohol fade leaving a pucker and burn at the back of the throat.
