Appears a dark brownish black with a small off white head that fizzles out into a tiny collar. Not a whole lot of lacing going on.
Smell is bready, roasted nuts, raisins, figs, molasses, brown sugar, and black grapes.
Taste is of the same sweet like aromas but it’s not cloying and the abv of 9.2% isn’t that noticable.
Mouthfeel has a mild alcohol presence with a brown sugar like gummy sweetness with black grapes running along the palate leaving a nice finish.
Drinkability is superb for an eisbock. One of the better ones of the style that I’ve had.

Tap at Andy’s. Oh boy oh boy an Eisbock. I love ’em. Very syrupy/dried fruit flavored and sweet and alcohol-y. Friend of mine didn’t enjoy it too much, but I love the style and loved this. Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Pours dark dark brown, small, offwhite head. Constant tiny bubbles. Sweet, toffee aroma and flavor and some molasses or darker sugar also. Smokier towards the finish. Also, pretty dry finish. Lots of alcohol warms your gullet as it goes down. This stuff does remind me of the Celebrator Dopplebock, perhaps with less depth of flavor. fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2005
White head with dark dark brown color. Cannot see through. Toffee prune smell. Very very smooth toffee sweet taste.

Pours a dark brown color with an off-white head much like a doppelbock. Chocolate, caramel, dried fruit in the aroma. Burnt wood, lightly fruity, and a little syrupy flavor. Very enjoyable. porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Deep brown pour, with no head. A very plummy, malty, and yeasty aroma. Pretty sweet mouthfeel with flavors reminding me of plums, and other dried fruit. Slightly cloying but not too much. A very tasty brew, great for dessert, at least for me! Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) 7,5% ABV in my version. Deep reddish brown with a smallish off-white head. Very malty, full body. Smooth and sweetish but never cloying - there’s enough hops to add balance. Notes of dried fruit - and plenty of it. This almost reminds me of dark Belgian trappists. Yummy. 120101 larsga (7605) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2005
Smallish off-white head, which subsides. Dark mahogany red body. Aroma is malty, with hints of alcohol and roastiness. Taste is dark and subtle, somewhat roasty, giving way to deep toffee-like sweetness and finally alcohol heat balanced by faint hop bitterness. A very good, and very interesting beer. I wouldn’t have that many at once (for more than one reason :), but very good. Palidor19 (3190) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Hmm Boy, now this is a Beer, Sweet and malty with an strong alcohol presence. The taste of caramel and toffee makes this a great nightcap drink
