Judging Temperature, 50 degrees Farenheit. Glassware, 12oz Gobblet.
Appearance, fits the bill in the form of deep copper and dense with an immediate foam that quickly dies leaving little or no lace behind.
The nose is interesting in that it produces some plum and caramel notes, maybe a slight smoke, some alcohol.
Taking a sip there is noticeable alcohol, along with some slight smoke and plums, along with some caramel.
Mouthfeel is as expected in the form of strong but without any stickiness.
This Kulmbach will sneak up on ya and knock you out.

Smell and flavor reminiscent of EKU 28: sweet caramel grains...only smoother, cleaner, and more refined. Incredibly well-hidden alcohol -- no alcohol flavor or warmth; the alcohol just comes up and settles on you before you notice. Can’t wait to try the next in the Grimm Brothers series! scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Very little head from the quick pour, mousey brown color with a bit of haze. Caramelized grain aroma seems heavy and would flourish with a few minutes and degrees. I’m shocked that this is 13%. It has the smooth mouthfeel of less than half that, only at the distant finish is there any of that old wood varnish weight and sting. The first sip has a quick jab of milky caramel sweetness, disappears quickly into a clean finish, but creeps back into a bit of an epilogue of residual honeyed cereal notes. hopscotch (11044) - 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 ½ of a glass. Crisp, mostly clean finish. Sort of refreshing... never thought I’d say that about an 13% eisbock. Odd for the style, but very good overall. Kudos to explosivebeer for shipping this one from the Northwest!

Bottle from Baron Brewing in Seattle, WA--Poured a murky amber-copper body with next to no head. Floral, sweet, malty nose. Appley, crisp, sweet flavor. Nice carbonation level. Toffee, caramel, minty, acidic finish. Alcohol masked quite amazingly. Good brew! SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2008
draft @ brewery and again at uber (thanks to colin) - clear copper with almost no head; flat too with a thin syrup kind of look to it; aromas of alcohol, sweet malts and strange tartness; drinks thin and slightly hot at first; texture kind of like a syrupy juice; certainly on the strange side and kind of like a malt liquor Enniskillen (2051) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Brown with no head. Aroma is alcohol, pinot noir type note, caramel. Taste is light caramel, light alcohol, plums. Doesn’t seem like 13% at all. Seems like it would have more depth also. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle from Suzziegreenberg thanks ben. Bomber to be exact A bright orange pour wiht a bright white ring. Nose is malty and does not hint at a high abv. Taste is quite sweet and very clean. Not boozy in my opinion. Decent American eisbock. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
2008 Bottle via a trade with scrizz, thanks Clint. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon, lightly sour, caramel, cinnabun and fruity. Taste is tart, fruity, caramel and not really that bad for an infected Baron beer. Actually, the malt melds well with the tartness. Creamy carbonation.
