Cloudy chocolate brown beer. Semi dry palate. Rich malt with a good dash of chocolate and a little aniseed alcohol and brandy. Not nad but was hoping for a lot more from this big Dutch Eisbock!

Very dark chestnut color, almost black; big head. Nice aroma of malt and caramel, also some chocolate and maybe liquorice and spices. Medium bodied, less thick and sweet than other examples; mostly chocolate flavor. In the end the alcohol is warming. Because of the chocolate, it reminds me more a Strong Belgian than an Eisbock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the Croydonia Tasting - East Croydon. Thanks to Jack for this not-too-common style - and a great pick for 30C weather! Pours deep amber with a creamy beige head. Sugary, semi-dark malts in the aroma, dark bread, dark fruits. Medium to big sweet flavor with expected dark malts, ripened dark fruits, bread, plums, etc. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Toasted dark bread to finish, light bittern toast, earth, light cocoa, more ripe fruits. Good. Decent balance for the ABV.
