Bottle from Papago Brewery. Pours a hazy, amberish-brown. Sorta looks like prune juice. Smells of dried fruit and sweet malt. Taste is rich and complex with lots of plum. Never would have guessed 12% alcohol. Delicious.

It smells wonderful of port and has plenty of ripe fruit in the aroma. The taste explodes with banana, vanilla, lots of candy and ripe plums. It is definitely a winter beer, it’s heavy, rich and alcohol strong and should be enjoyed temperate at a time when you have plenty of time available. Only a few imperial stouts and barley wine can surpass this amazing eisbock.

Gift from Carlos. In Ikea’s pint glass. Playing Bardbarian. Spectacular. Really nice caramel sweetness. Not a sugary sweetness like in some belgians. Its high ABV doesnt bother at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2-oz. bottle. Rich plum and fig jump out immediately, creating a heavy bouquet. Spoiled banana esters, clove, yeasty dough, fresh pear, cinnamon raisin, and a trace of black pepper also waft up from the soap-suds-like head that tops the murky purplish-brown liquid. A boozy raisin flavor rushes hard over the palate before a spicy herbal tone pops up to alleviate the richness. A bit of botanical blend joins complex notes of prunes and woody pear. The heat (from both the alcohol and the spiciness) complements the sweet fruity flavors well, but the burn becomes a tad too dominant after a while. Lively carbonation keeps the slick mouthfeel dancing over the taste buds before a peppery dry finish brings it all to a halt. A nice sipper, but the alcohol burn, while expected, keeps it from maximum enjoyment.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Marrom escura, espuma bege de média formação e pouca persistência. Aroma lembra groselha, uva passa, cereja, licor de morango, álcool perceptível. Paladar segue bastante as impressões iniciais do aroma, bastante malte de média torrefação, novamente uvas e morango, dulçor intenso e amargor proveniente do malte torrado. Corpo licoroso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste de longa duração, dulçor persistente, álcool bastante presente que depois de um tempo acaba atrapalhando a percepção do sabor, mas por estar dentro do estilo, não considerei como um defeito. Muito boa !

Pours thick muddy brown, as with regular wheat beer it has a lot of yeast sediment, swirled this and added t glass. Aromas and taste of deep, dark fruits. A fair bit of alcohol burn to this but is to be expected, Soft, sweet slightly dry finish. Nice beer!!

Bottle shared. Wow this is mindblowing, so deep and complex, tons of raisin, toffee and tart, thick mouthfeel, warming boozy notes. Outstanding, to be sipped and enjoyed slowly.
