Clear dark amber color with no head. Lots of raisins in the aroma and in the flavor a bit too much alcoholic but that’s naturally. Very sweet and such a smooth palate.

Flip top bottle shared by shrubber85 as we were talking about unsessionable beers. Pours a dark copper/auburn brown color with no head, much more like a digestif. The aroma and flavor have big sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and booze. I would agree with phaleslu that this is not as boozy as the Brewdog beers. This was a real treat? and definitely a surprise to see.

Bottle pour shared. The beer is a dark brown with no head or sign of carbonation. The aroma has strong, sugary sweetness. Very strong. The taste has big sweetness and heat. Burn on the way down. Huge body. No carbonation. Slick, oily mouthfeel.

Bottle shared by shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! Pours a somewhat cloudy browned amber with no head, but some heavy legs on the sides of the glass. Notes of molasses, charred wood, burnt sugar, caramel, toffee - and booze, lots of booze. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel. But honestly, this drinks easier than its BrewDog counterparts. It doesn’t have the fusel alcohol burn those do. This is a fairly nice sipper, actually. Very pleasant surprise, compared to what I was expecting. Never thought I’d see one of these. Fun stuff.

@ phaleslu’s cinci tasting. .33l bottle, huge thanks to shrubber for sharing. Mostly clear red brown color, with some particles suspended in the body. No head nor lace, but crazy good, thick ribby legs on the side of my taster. Big dark fruit, alcohol heat in the nose, chocolate and nuttiness. Medium to bigger body. Little to no carbonation. Mild slick texture, though light drying in the finish, with a bite of fire. Tons of heat, definitely say a liquor-type burn to this, though impressively easy to touch for 31%. Good bit of complex dark character to this, nice flavor. Moderate to bigger sweet taste... Big sweet taste really. Alcohol heat. Wow. This is incredible to try. Never thought I would have a chance. Certainly a big heat, but not firey or like fuel... Nice complex dark character. Super-interesting. But as far as drinkability and overall pleasure... this was tricky to get to... But I’m going to call it at 6.5/10, not counting novelty factor and my massive fascination around this 8/4/7/3/13

Bottle via trade with Alen. The aroma is strange, soy sauce, solvent, butter, candy, fruit. The appearance is translucent red/brown, no head, and no carbonation. The flavor is like the aroma, but much more like solvent, boozy, soy sauce, butter, fruit, bread. The finish is booze burn, serious sweetness, like candied fruit. But mostly booze burn. My lips hurt. Nice thick body, like syrup. VERY interesting beer, definitely worth trying. I’m always trying to find new Eisbocks to try, and this has to be the most interesting. I’m really glad I got to try this. But the extreme booziness of this makes it a one-and-done kind of beer.
