Bottle shared at Au Revoir Tokyo. Thanks Gregg! Epic one here. Huge dry raspberry nose with some cherry and wood notes. Smooth as honey on the palate with a lovely lingering raspberry liqueur flavor. Alcohol was hidden so well. Fantastic stuff!

Douberd (5024) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2016
(Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock) Bottle 375 ml, red waxed cap, vintage 2012. Served into a snifter at home, ABV 15.5% Dark red to light brown colour on the body, murky, with a small and thin, tan coloured film covering the surface, with low retention. Aroma is intense raspberries, caramel, alcohol after a deep sniff, syrup, some dark fruits in there too. Taste has malty sweetness with lots of alcohol, some vanilla even, dark fruits, red fruits, molasses, syrup, plenty of raspberries. Medium thick body, soft carbonation, sticky on the palate. Pretty good and a nice sipper on a cold evening.

Just cracked opened the 2012 bottle. Pours a very dark ruby with a very faint off white head that immediately fades. Aroma is a huge raspberry and dark fruity aroma with almost a little bourbon aroma. Mouthfeel is a thick clingy full body desert wine like. Flavors with off course raspberry, some caramel, toffee, dark fruits, herbal notes. Huge complex beer. Cants believe it's 15.5%. Incredible beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4300th review! 375 ml bottle into tulip glass; 2014 vintage bottling. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep ruby red/brownish color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge tart/juicy raspberries, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, red wine, toasted brown bread, nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, wood, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of raspberries, dark/bready malt, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tart/juicy raspberries, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, red wine, toasted brown bread, nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, wood, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light fruity/tannic tartness and woody/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, toasted brown bread, nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, wood, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, dark/bready malt, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/fruit/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light dryness from acidic/tannic notes as well. Light carbonation and very full bodied; with a very slick/syrupy, fairly smooth, and lightly acidic/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a pleasant warmth lingering after the finish; with zero booziness. Overall this is an insane fruited eisbock style! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, dark/bready malt, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the enormous ABV. A highly amazing offering all around.

Bottle at the End of an Era tasting at ABC Beers, Den Haag, courtesy of Jeroen. Batch 5. Poured a clear dark amber with a bubbly round head. The aroma is fake sugar, raspberry. The flavour is moderate sweet, light sour with a yeast raspberry citrus, light acid palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.

Hoprider (478) - DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
2012 bottle: Pours clear reddish brown with no head. And I mean no head. The nose is big on rd sodavand. Makes no sense if you are not from denmark. Raspberry sweetness and cherry sauce. Darn delicious I must says. Taste: fruity bock with a big malty body but the tart fruit is on top of things. A little spicy oak too. The aftertaste is rather hot from the booze but the finish is back to the fruits. Propper ass boss pour too thanks to motherbrother. Cheerio fella!

MotherBrother (927) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2015
2012 vintage, thanks a lot mr. Dunt for this. Pour a reddish chesnut brown, with absolutely no head. Aroma is jam packed with raspberry jam, dark caramel, vanilla, toffee, almonds. Really a Big ol malt back, with the fruity jam from the raspberry. Taste is pretty darn sweet, with faint bitter hints - not from hops, but roasted malts/bitter chocolate-like stuff. Body is pretty full and oily, with as good as no carbonation. A Big boy beer for sure, with rather pronounced alcohol traces and slight burn. A little over the top splittin this two way
