Tried at Alesmith tasting room. Wow. crazy aroma. Very sweet malty aroma and taste. Tastes almost barrel aged, but it’s not. Brown amber color. dalekliz (923) - New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2009
Growler, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! Pours a deep reddish-brown with an off-white head. Big aroma, of malt, dark fruits, baked goods, and sugar. Sharp and sweet taste, of malt, figs, dates, brown sugar, baked goods. Lingering sweet sharpness. Strange, but very tasty. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2009
Growler courtesy of the thick freak himself, Charles. Thanks for picking this up for me. A Growler of an Eisbock, that sounds nice 11% abv also nice. Hard as hell to open, ah I perserver. Pours deep amberish purple wiht a small head. Nose is sweet rich malty and full of dark fruit. Taste is sweet malty and fruity. Damn tasty and damn smooth.

This was tasty @ Winterfest. Dark amber color with sweet malt and molasses on the nose and some of that "chilled" character I expect in Eisbocks. Similar flavor with a strong alcoholic finish. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Finally got to try some Mister Spock Eisbock, and it better be a lot better than that Romulan Ale I had at the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas last summer! On draught during the Winterfest 2008 in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a dark reddish amber brew with a a creamy off-white head that has some good retention and some spotty lacing. Aroma of dark malt, molasses, some caramel, dark rum, and a touch of cherry. Taste is full bodied, high alcohol character with flavors of molasses, rum, some caramel malt, cherries and a touch of vanilla. Finish is strong alcohol presence with a caramel and cherry aftertaste that slowly dissipates clean. As Mr. Spock would put it, "Fascinating."

On tap at the 2007 GTMW: Transparent copper mahogany with a frothy small-bubbled wispy-lacing dark tan head. Sweet rich dark caramely German malty aroma has some light fruity notes. Body starts sweet and caramely malty with some earthy bitter notes toward a warming finish. A pretty decent eisbock. Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2007
GTMW. I’ve been looking forward to this one as I’m a fan of eisbocks, although good ones are difficult to find. This did not disappoint. Notes of vanilla, caramel, cherry, and peach lead into a sticky palate with a dark rum finish. Well crafted and enjoyable. A nice change of pace from some of the super hoppy beers that were around that day. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2007
On tap at GTMW, and I’ve been looking for this one for a while! Poured a surprisingly clear deep caramel with a yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, tasty caramels with supple darker fruit as well.. warm and inviting. The flavor picked up more of the dark fruit than the nose.. rum-laden with toasty caramel farther down.. warm, alcohol-accented herbal hoppage on the bitter finish.. couple medicinal notes detracted a bit. Heavily-bodied and bitter throughout.. just OK balance and feel on the finish. RJBennett (52) - Hibbing, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2007
cereal, chocolate, citrus, red, clear, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, heavy cloying sweetness, medium body, sticky, This beer was so interesting, i do not know how to explain, if you ever have a chance to drink it, do not pass it up.

Dark, bit red, at first glance I’d thought they’d given me an imperial stout by mistake. Very malty and fruity, lots of candied raisins, sugars, plums, nuts, and a bit of chocolate. Really, really rich stuff, would be nice to drink by the fire.
