5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle:   Dirty caramel in color, somewhat muddy, thin dishwater like head, falls quickly, no real lacing.   Almost appears still. Bready nose, slight alcohol and caramel.   Bready on the tongue, slight immature grape with very little fig/date that I associate with the style.   Doesnt taste like an Eisbock, but moreso a higher octane Maibock.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly average.   Hard to believe this is 13%.   Lingering breadiness.   Seems rather simple.   Not as complex as I would have expected.   Not bad, fairly simple beer.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of caramel malt, some tropical fruit and floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, high alcohol character with flavors of caramel, brown sugar, and a touch of vanilla. Finish is slightly metallic with a caramel and light fruit aftertaste that slowly dissipates clean.

Not as good as you hope a eisbock will be, with the knowledge of what they can be. Moderate carbonation in the bottle I tried. Cloudy. Some fruit and brown sugar. It really doesnt make me think of an eisbock at all.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2009
The aroma is odd with notes of caramel and vinegar. The beer pours a golden amber color with no head. The flavor is initially that of some caramel malts, sweet dark fruit, followed by a weird vinegar kind of note which might also be mistaken for almost rotten fruit. Alcohol is not as strong as what I would expect from this high abv, but I dont know if that is a good or bad thing. To be honest, this one sucks. Baron needs to figure out how to not fuck up their bottles...

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle thanks to 5000: Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of light caramel malt and lager yeast with some tart strawberry notes that seem reminiscent of an infection. Body starts with decent fullness and caramel toffee sweetness with some peppery alcohol and lightly tart fruity character. Pretty easy to drink, but could be modeled off a better base beer.

hopscotch (11012) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy orange lager with a small, fizzy, white head that dissipates almost immediately. Rich, fruity aroma. Honey and black cherries rise from the glass... light apricot too. Surprisingly thin for the style and accompanying high ABV. Medium to full-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and seltzer-like carbonation. Medium sweetness, mildly acidic and lightly bitter. Drinks like a 7% beer, but I do have a small buzz after only of a glass. Crisp, mostly clean finish. Sort of refreshing... never thought Id say that about an 13% eisbock. Odd for the style, but very good overall. Kudos to explosivebeer for shipping this one from the Northwest!

dalekliz (918) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle. Thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing. Pours a hazy brownish-amber. Sweet malt aroma with fruit notes. Taste is also sweet, of malt and fruit. The alcohol is nicely hidden. Good carbonation and pleasant lingering crisp sweetness. Nice eisbock.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2008
22oz bottle from Johns Marketplace in Portland. Hazy dark brown and wheat colored body. Nose of faint and dusty, minerally yeast, boozy alcohol and wet bread with a touch of over-ripened oranges. Flavor is bran, corn, toast, booze, heavy caramel and chewy, soggy old and damp grains, a little putrid even, finishing with some sweet corn and heavy caramel. Not good at all, sorry to say. Its a boozy caramel apple mess.
