’07 Eisenbock-187ml bottle @Vero Beach Throwdown-pours no head and ruby red with brown color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, faint dark fruit-raspberry. Taste is medium malt-caramel, raspberry, dark fruit. Some alcohol. A BIG Thanks to Hopscotch for sharing. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2005
On tap: Has a fruit punch and apple aroma. Dark brown with a small tan head that’s more of a ring around the edge of the glass than an actual head. Has a light fruit punch flavor lingering in the background with some raisin and a light tart and slight alcohol finish. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Big thanks to Wohlfs for the hand bottle. Poured a ruby color with a brown tint and minimal head. Aroma was fruity, of plums and grapes. Flavors again were fruity with some caramel as well. Finish had a spicey/bitter taste seemingly from the alcohol. Otherwise the alcohol was very well hidden for 13%. Light syrupy mouthfeel and medium to full bodied.

Murky brown with hardly any head at all. Aroma was light with some hoppy citrus notes. Taste was mostly grape if anything with some honey and caramel. Nothing too special. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Thanks to Wohlfs, saved the end of a growler for me. Has alot of vinous notes in the aroma. Flavor is really fruity but tough to place. Maybe a sour grape fruit punch is the best description I can come up with. Alot of alcohol present in the finish.

Dark ruby brown with a dissapating light tan head. The aroma is sweet, grapes, plum sauce (the kind you put on mu-shu pancakes). The flavor is caramel, grape, licorice, and a surprising bitter punch. The alcohol is there but it is not over the top. It starts nice but the finish is astringent. What this beer needs is raspberries! Thanks a bunch to wohlfs for the hand bottled bottle!

Deep red. Nose full of grape and sugar. Smells just like a glass of grape Kool-Aid, oddly enough. Flavor quite similarly is hugely of grapes, lots of caramel sweetness as well. Surprisingly prevalent licorice bitterness at the swallow which gives a very sudden dry finish, flavor is effectively gone at the swallow. Really like the initial fruity burst, but the bitterness at the end isn’t "eisbocky" nor is it particularly pleasant. Leaves kind of a sandy residue in the mouth. Is apparently normally brewed with the addition of raspberries, and that would certainly help here. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Tap. Hazy brown color. Slight brownish head fades out to nothingness. Rich fullbodied grain and alcohol aromas. Not as syrupy as I would expect for an eisbock. A touch winey in flavor with a bitterness that is felt throughout. Decent. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Pours a hazy tan with dark head.
Nose is sugarry with a candy raspberry smell.
Taste is sweet, very smooth raspberry flavor, not too big or sweet, nice and fruity, lots of chocolate malt, tastes like a light raspberry cordial. Great desert beer, terrible session beer. walleye (1102) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2005
