Bottled. Clear dark brown, no head. Limp malt aroma. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel. Crystalized sugar adds a dimension to an otherwise, by Eisbock-standards, underdeveloped malt profile. Notes of grassy hops and raisin. Some alcohol shining through in the finish. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2006

Very nice dry malty aroma. Nice and clean taste and appearance. Plenty of malts and instant coffe/chocolate in taste. Some caramell too. A pretty beer, and alcohol cannot be detected at all. Very well made...
Thnaks to Oakes for this one. Poured a clear dark brown with a ruby tint. Sweet aroma of grapes, fruit, toasty malt, plums and notes of raisins. Fruity flavor. Some dark fruits. Toasty with caramel. Medium to full body almost silky. Nice carbonation in the mouthfeel. Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
Very dark but not opaque with a ruby color to it.Aroma is a sweet caramel and you can tell it’s been aged. Overly sweet sugary molasses toffee flavour. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2005
Brown ale with a cherry red hue with a oka head. Sweet caramel aroma with light licorice. Sweet licorice malt and alcohol warmth. Oily mouthfeel with a rich body.

Bottle. Strong brown/rub red colour. No head at all. Almost port-like aroma - sour and wine like. Mouthfeel was pretty syrupy. Taste was boozy, and again, it had a wine sourness to it that really didn’t mesh well. Pretty unbalanced really. Not something I’d try again, but it was an effort. Thanks for sharing jercraigs. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2004
Dark ruby tinged brown body with a small creamy beige head. Big malty aroma, with dark fruit, alcohol and burnt brown sugar. Vinuous quality to it, malty with a tangy not quite sour character undertone. Alcohol is very well hidden if its the 9.5% on the label. I’ll be bock. Thanks for the bottle JoeMcPhee! stephen louis (165) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
On opening:plums,and fermented prunes.pours a very nice dark malt colour,like a bright black.Very small head that is dark tan and does not stick around,no lacing.
on taste:It is like a Abby,without the sweetness.Starts with a very mild molasses that turns to ripe plums and spice,the middle is warm,the finnish is dry,and mildly Carmel.
This beer has more bite then carbonation,at the front,good and comforting mouth-feel.
This is a one beer beer per night.
why you should try this beer:well put together,has quite a kick to it.Seasonal so if you don’t you won’t.
Why you should not try this beer: well it is a little light on carbonation and a little high on price. Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2004
Clear dark Chocolate colour. no head. pungent vinegary alcohol nose. strong chocolate malt fore taste with balsamic vinegar after. Too much Alcohol?? frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. Aromas of toffee, coffee, roasted malts and somthing I couldn’t identify. The carbonation was vey understated. Flavours of toffee, malts, coffee basicly the same as the aroma as well as the mystery flavour,sweet with a well hidden 9.5% alcohol. O.k. but nothing I’ll try again.
