bytemesis (8125) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle - 2017 vintage. My 10th Eisbock tick - worth $23 I guess?? Pours murky chestnut, small beige head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is oak, dates, hint of nail polish remover initially, raisins, cherries, vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet, rasins, dates and cherries dominate. Full body, low carbonation. Thick.

nearbeer (5307) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2017
33 cl. bottle. Pours deep brown with maybe a ruby tint. Smattering of loose foam on top. Big nose of red wine and creamed brown sugar is tempered by wafts of soy, vinegar and a bit of the barrel. Flavors of blackberry, toasted wood and mildly sweet red wine with a bit of white pepper. The wine note also has a hint of vinegar at times. Medium-plus body is meaty and smooth with low carbonation. The combination provides a dangerously drinkable mouthfeel and balance. Definitely seems the wine dominates this marriage, but its damn tasty and Im never been much of a wine drinker..

Seul (3) - Lokeren, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2017 does not count
2014 version, matured for 24 months on Pinot Noir barrels. First of all: this is one helluva underrated beer... But: if you dont appreciate wine, dont bother with this beer... Flat, lots of vanille, tanines, and a nice sour Pinot Noir touch, whilst the base beer is still there... Best drank in the dark as the colour isnt appealing at all...

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
- braun-schwarze Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen von sehr reifer Banane, Honig, Drrobst, Malz aber auch ein sehr stark wahrnehmbarer Alkoholgeruch - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist sehr lig, verbunden mit einem Kakaoaroma und einer durchdringenden Bananennote - danach erinnert das Ganze mehr an einen Medium Sherry mit einer leichten Rotweinnote als ein Bier - erst gegen Ende erscheint die Hopfenbitternis und etwas Weinbrand Fazit: Mehr Dessertwein denn Bier

Pour was reddish hue brown with zero head or lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and caramel and oak. Flavor the same with some faint red wine and vanilla. Mouthfeel totally flat and decent body but not sticky.
