Tradition reborn - Eisbock Kraftbier, a beer with patina, over 100 years old, once prescribed as a medicine for weak recovering patients - is currently celebrating its renaissance as URBOCK DUNKEL EISBOCK. Brewed with special dark malt and fermented with traditional Eggenberg yeast, this beer has a maturation period of up to nine months. Dark brown in color with an alcohol content of almost 10% by volume, URBOCK DUNKEL EISBOCK has a pleasant, full, and creamy body, with the aroma of coffe, surprisingly light on the tongue despite the alcohol content. Warming with toffee-like malty sweetness, balanced by a hoppy-bitterness in the finish, it is a power beer, as its traditional Austrian name says, best enjoyed after dinner or as an evening drink.

dark clear brown, thin beige head, lots of lace, sweet alcoholic malt aroma, big rich malt flauor, huge body, too sweet and cloying, what were they thinking?

Very thin light beige head, mostly diminishing. Body is a rust-tinged mahogany/crimson/chestnut, deep in color but light pierces through anyhow. The aroma is rich with decadent caramel and Munich malts, also loaded with red meat aromas, much like the afterthoughts of grilling a juicy porterhouse. Lesser scents of nuts, peppery spice, coffeehouse, roasted grain and tobacco follow. Alcohol is very, very well concealed. The flavor is ridiculously easygoing, spreading caramel and alcoholic warmth across the tongue with the first small sip, begging a larger following gulp. Sweetness is high but deftly offset by light astringency, light toasted bitterness and a hefty malt bill of focused dispersion. The taste is absolutely tremendous, marrying malt and alcohol like it’s the easiest task in the world. Huge nutty notes fold in just as toasted malt lacks buttery consistency; this addition really makes this beer great. Earthy nuances flutter about and drive complexity further. The finish is only very lightly warming, caramel, toast and nuts lingering. A soft fade for such a large lager. The mouthfeel is divine, with lush velvety carbonation, neither sticky nor thinned by lengthy aging, full-bodied and as smooth as wet ice. Marvelous.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle aged 1 year. Poured dark caramel with an off-white head. Nose is roasty malt and earth. Very malty with some caramel, almond, slight metal in the finish, some caramel up-front from the aging. Good bitterness. Medium balance and carbonation.

skortila (5967) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2007
Aroma of dark fruits, caramel malt and honey. Clear, dark ruby-brown coloured with an off-white head. Taste is sweet, malty siruppy, some caramel, coffee and dark fruits in it. Nice.

Bullit (4672) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2007
Red-brown colour, off-white head. Fruity aromas. Flavours: honey, coffee. Finishes a bit bitter and metallic

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Pours a dark malty brown with a very thin light white head. Smells of dark fruits, cocoa beans, and caramel. Very nice light chocolate and dark malty blended flavor. Some burnt roasty malts definitely are detectable in the finish on this one. Very smooth and easy drinking for almost 10%, I was surprised. Good job.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Thanks to bwkrieger or tpaliga....clear reddish brown. Good malt/syrup sweetness. Some dark fruit. Creamy texture.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2007
11.2 oz bottle, Stateline Liquors. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown under a fairly small fizzy light beige head that receded to a thin ring. Nose is thickly malty with alot of caramel and toffee, some alcohol, and coffee. Very syrupy smelling. Flavor is toffee and dark fruit dominated up front fading to a warming alcoholic finish with a touch of light oxidation. Alcohol is there, but not overpowering. Alot of coffee and light roast emerged as it warmed. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with a sticky finish that was thinned a bit due to the alcohol. Carbonation is moderate and slightly fizzy. Pretty nice and quite different from some of the other Eisbocks that I’ve had. I liked the coffee and roast aspects and the alcohol was not very apparent.

shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle. Walnut/pecan malt and alcohol aroma. Medium brown with slight head. Sweet nutty malt and coffee flavor with moderate alcohol and hops finish. Pretty sweet but not cloying. Very nice and much better than Samichlaus.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2007
Propably the best beer I tried in Austria. Chestnut color, rich aromas of malt,caramel,coffee and spices. Sweet and malty flavour, very nice finish. pretty good beer.
