COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing in the land of fire and ice (The Eastern Sierra) since 1995 has brought us to this style of beer, where we use a long intense boil to concentrate color, flavor, and natural sugars. Then after fermentation, we freeze no more than 2% of the water content out of the beer. This concentrates the alcohol and smooths out the flavor for a true winter seasonal. Like a bliss of a "one swing stick" into the ice, this beer will distill your attention down to the single focus of the bend of your elbow. Fire and Eisbock will age well, but do drink one now to compare with our barrel-aged eisbock.

olio (10260) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2017
65 cl bottle @ Timo A’s Flip-top Tasting. 2016 vintage. BBE 30.11.2016 (Importer sticker).
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is resinous hoppy, caramel, malts, dried fruits, distant vanilla. Flavor is dried malty, some wooden whisky notes, some leather, quite sweet. Slight contamination here, probably some age at work too, too sweet and harsh metallic, some sour sharpness. A bit disappointing.

yoxik75 (103) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Piana drobna, niewielka, znika do krążka. Kolor ciemny bursztyn wpadający w czerwień klarowne. Aromat, słodki, słodowy, owoce suszone, karmel. Smak również słodki, lekko wyklejający, jest karmel, brązowy cukier, melanoidyny, wyraźnie zaznaczone chmielenie w smaku i goryczce, alkohol trochę się przebija. Nagazowanie średnie zauważalne, ożywia piwo. Całość dobra, bez wad i większych doznań smakowych.
