5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle:   Cola in color, fizzy beige head that dies immediately, zero lacing.   Rich bready nose, heavy dark pitted fruit, noticeable alcohol, some raw hide.   Tastes like a bigger Doppelbock.   Very bready, rich,
warming, with assertive dark pitted fruit.   Fairly sweet, but not so thick that it gets cloying.   Decent little beer, a bit better than I was expecting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as thick or viscous as
you might think.   Finish somewhat falls flat, flavor doesn’t stick around for long.   Alcohol shows up a bit more in the finish.   Tiz okay, fairly simple, a little hot, but still enjoyable.   I wouldn’t call it an
Eisbock, but instead a meatier Doppelbock.   Thanks Todd for the beer! turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle. Very dark brown like a porter. No head or lacing, just a ring. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of raisins and dried fruit. Very sweet with definite raisin taste as well. Medium body. Slight roasty taste is overwhelmed by the sweetness and high alcohol. It’s pretty cool to have a rare style like this brewed locally. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2009
341mL bottle, no date from Irishboy. Clear orange brown with a 1/4 finger brown head, low retention. Lots of syrupy sweet caramel and toffee up front with some light vanilla and toast behind. Flavor adds a very light salty soy note in addition to some burnt roasted malts, as well as some alcohol warmth and dark chocolate. Bitterness peaked at a 2-3 in the finish. After that, the aftertaste had a distinct nuttiness. Medium syrupy body with light to moderate prickly carbonation. Not too bad, but not my favorite eisbock.

Bloody wonderful is this stuff! If only we could get the price down a bit (thanks, tax-man). Only downside is the short season for this, i.e., available only around Christmas but well worth the wait. Buy a few extras and keep them in the fridge. Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
I think this bottle was aged as much as two years and that was a good thing. Poured black with little head to speak of. That meant understated carbonation. There was a tad of lace. Delicious rich malty, and that was in the aroma. Cocoa, and a touch of roast.More imperial porter, with above average mouthfeel, than the hoppy versions from a brewer in Niagara Falls of the same style.

Bottle shared by IrishBoy, pours prune brown with no head. Nose and flavor are sweet of molasses and some soy. Smooth on the palate. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle at Woodshop quad, from irishboy. Pours brown with a tan ring. Nose is sweet, taste is sweet and rich and pretty light. ironchefscott (357) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2009
