An almost black colored beer. Aroma and flavor dominated by the bitterness coming from both the roasted malts and hopps. Bitterness is well balanced with notes of fruityness and caramel. Some alcohol warming in the back. Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
Stubby bottle of 330 ml, at home, poured into a snifter.
Pured carefully after letting it warm up a bit, it gave me a very dark coloured beer, with a huge three fingers beige, creamy head, with good retention. It left a light lacing behind.
Smell is molasses, chocolate, toffee and a bit of alcohol.
Taste of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Alcohol is very well hidden.
Very thick body, full and creamy. Carbonation is average I would say.
Overall a very nice sipping beer, that becomes even better as it warms up. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 15, 2012
The head is perfect, the body darkred almost black. It smells roasty, darkmalty, creamy-alcoholic, bitter-hoppy, a bit caramel. The taste is a bit roasty, darkmalty, sweet, full bodied and balanced, less hoppy, coffee, creamy, chocolate, Delicious! 13/13/12/13/12/13 SimplySike (1550) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012

My first eisbock thx to my secret sinterklaas! Ruby red to brown colour with a small off white head. Smells heavy malty, some herbs, slightly alcoholic. Tastes malty, sweet, some herbs and spices i can’t name. It’s quite nice, but also a quite heavy beer. Full body, great carbo. A beer to enjoy slowly.

Zo zal bokbier bedoeld zijn. Niet te zoet. Uitstekende balans. Kan vrij koud gedronken worden. Doet qua kruiden denken aan een jonge Rochefort 10, zij het iets minder geurig. Lange bittere nasmaak. Drinkt vlot weg en smaakt naar meer. Gerardgathier (511) - - NOV 8, 2012
Pours dark brown in glass with mocca head.
Thick mouthfeel, hints of chocolate mocca and roasted barley.

Clear dark ruby with light brown foam head, reducing to smaller foam ring, lacing to glass. Aroma is strong barley with some bread notes. Taste is bittersweet, tones of bread, barley and little yeast. Longer aftertaste, barley, liitle sweet, bread. (Velp 201211) thanatosti (1841) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, molasses and red apples. Tasting adds coffee, chocolate and more molasses. Quite bitter aftertaste with some alcohol warmth. My first Eisbock and quite a tasty beer.
