3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fra flaske på RBHD-treff ombord på Fridtjofen jan-17: mørkebrun med kort skum. Vinøs, kvass og fruktig aroma og smak med svisker, rosiner og røde epler. Alkoholen varmer i magen. Ganske spiss, fruktsyrlig ettersmak med ganske mange rosiner. Ikke spesielt godt, men effektivt.

6.75 oz bottle at Bavarian Grill Plano. Poured a murky brown with no head at all. Very boozy up front, caramel malts and dark fruit finish. Low-medium carbonation, oily body. Seems oxidized to me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I tried three of these Schorschbock beers at one tasting and this one was the worst, which was surprising since it’s much less of a novelty beer. It’s cloudy, lighter in color than I expected w/ a small head. This stuff is not as terribly sweet as I expected but still sticky and hot. There’s a bit of banana in the nose plus a bunch of strange oxidized, ashy and grassy flavors. Really, this is a very odd and rather off tasting beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
6.75 mL bottle. Turbid, honey-gold pour with smallish off-white head, not much retention. Nose is big dried fruit (dates, raisins, figs), brown sugar, toffee, candy, wildflower honey and hints of vanilla. Mouth is thick and oily, relatively soft carbonation, sweet with a lot of dried fruitiness, caramel, apple juice, ABV warmth in the finish. Not sure why this is so poorly rated -- it’s actually decent. No, it’s not Aventinus,(no one comes close) but still a solid eisbock.
