sebletitje (9908) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2017
Bouteille 33cl. Brune voire ambre, col beige. Arme au nez sucr cristallis, fruits noirs; figues et date avec raisin sec, petite note de grill en rtro-nasal. Palais est pais, caramlis, sirupeux, pas mal de sucre rsiduel mais sans tre surfait, effet flash caramlis bien surprenant et un fini versant sur le fruit noir assez savoureux.

Zlotta (2872) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Biertraum, best before July 2020 (probably bottled in July 2015). Clear, very dark ruby with a thin, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Intensely sweetish, malty and moderately fruity aroma of plums, raisins, molasses, figs and caramel. Very sweet, malty and slightly fruity taste of raisins, plums, molasses, figs and some caramel, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite warming and minimally alcoholic finish. Full body, oily and sticky mouthfeel, almost flat. Really tasty, rich and saturating stuff, almost like a bottom-fermented Barley Wine.

77ships (9201) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2017
Thank you tderoeck! 330 ml. bottle split post ACBF 2017. BBF 13.07.2021. Dark ruby brown, brief tanned head. Nose is sweet herbal caramelized banana, lager fish guts dominates bit much, brown banana. Taste is big on fish guts lager yeast, sugar, brown banana, yeasty, soapy, yeast dominates bit too much, herbal. Body is herbal lager yeast. Okay but I liked the basic version a lot more. Caramelized taste seems to be bit absent here.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 Bottle from Werckmeister (euro local swap 3/201), many thanks! Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Quite sweet, with light roast and lots of dark fruits (raisins, figs, prunes), brown sugar, berries, light citrus. Slick, sweet, not cloying, some bitterness and booze in the finish. Nice.

Koelschtrinker (19395) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 22, 2017
Dunkler, wenig rstiger Malzantrunk. Angenehme Hintergrundse, weiche Kaffeenoten, der Alkohol ist erkennbar aber nie strend. Geringe Karbonisierung, steigend malzig, dabei Noten von Karamell und weiter etwas Kaffee. Gut. 10/12/11/12/9/12

MrBeerFanatic (1050) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Dark brown in color almost no head. Big aromas of caramel all around and slight toffee. The alcohol is decently hidden. Flavors produce big caramel and light alcohol. Pretty one dimensional but cool to rate an eisbock, as they are hard to come by.
