    2009 offering from PfoxyJohn; been sitting on this one until the right occasion. Today there is an Ice Storm named KHAN in East Tennessee. Stuck at home. Watching freezing rain all day. Built a fire. Ice/fire. Beautiful almost clear true amber pour, white ring and cap which quickly reduces to a constant white ring, very light chunky lacing. Nice toffee and caramel big malt nose, light alcohol, very slight apple-like nose. Taste is pleasant sweet malts, caramel and toffee, very little alcohol bite for an Eisbock, still warming enough - a true sipper - light earthy hops mostly hidden. Nursed this one for well over an hour. Aged very well since 2009. Huge thanks to John for this rare style.

    This is my first eisbock. Nice copper red pour but with almost no head and no lacing. This beer is all about the malt in both aroma and taste. Very sweet--bready malt and caramel with no hops evident. Made for a good dessert and worthy of review #600.

    Not the best of this style that I've had but easy to drink anyway. Dark orange color with a light tan head. Mild slightly sweet nose, some spice and hops. Flavor is malty, very smooth and easy to drink. A tiny bit of hops in the aftertaste which makes it kind of quenching actually.

    Poured from a bottle to a nice toasted malt look. Nice malt aroma that had that sweet maltyness behind it. The flavor was of course malty with a hint of taste of toasted nut. Nice and smooth

    Bottle from Styles, shared at State Line by me. The pour was full darker amber, comparable to a darker blonde doppelbock. The head was surprisingly decent for the ABV, good off-gas on bottle opening. The aroma was sweet bubblegum and really rich caramel. The flavor followed suit, slight toasty notes, strong doughy and candy notes also present with a slightly resinous finish. This was a malt bomb, as would be expected, but it was a bit too cloying. The most impressive aspect of this beer was its hiding of the heat, as I was really questioning while drinking weather it was really an eisbock as the title led me to believe: 10pct ABV? Wow, hard to believe, pretty smooth. The mouthfeel wasn't sticky given the flavor, medium body. Thanks, Chris, this was indeed a fun one!

    Pours with a frothy, initially two-finger thick, amber tinged, tan colored head. The beer is a reddish tinged, deep amber color and shows a brilliantly clear, bright cranberry color when held up to the light. The aroma has an immensely rich, concentrated malt aroma to it that seems just characteristic of a Bock. Bready malt notes, sweetly complex grain, green raisins, ample biscuit notes and huge, caramelized, toffee-like malt notes. The alcohol notes are hidden quite well. As the beer warms up the nose starts to suggest at the age of this beer; lightly oxidized with some Sherry notes noticed if you dig around for them.

    Sweet tasting, but amply rich enough that it is not cloying. Thick, viscous, chewy, this beer is a meal in a glass; the beer coats the mouth and palate with a velvety texture that is just lightly offset by a medium-full carbonation. The alcohol is noticeable at times in the finish, yet it is pretty darn smooth for such a big beer. The rich, clean malt character is big enough that it evokes thoughts of fruit, despite this being a clean lager, hints of cherries, green raisins and maybe something like dried figs. There is a noticeable hop character here as well with a soft herbal note that runs through the middle and lingers on in the finish for quite some time with a soft hop-bitterness. The hop character is actually pretty pronounced for a Bock / Eisbock, but adds a nice dimension and balance to the dominant malt character. As the beer warms up it picks up suggestions of vanilla, flavors of toffee and a bit more of a vinous quality.

    Quite a tasty brew and most definitely a fitting way to close out the night. Not one of those beers that wows me with its greatness, but this is a very good beer; a mellow beer that is just about perfect for those cold, slow nights spent in front of the fire with a good book.

    This pours a very nice looking reddish amber with a long lasting head. The aroma is bready/malty and the flavor is slightly sweet and smooth on the tongue. It's a very enjoyable ber.

    Pours a gorgeous tawny red with a larger than expected head that leaves a sticky lace behind. The aroma is strongly malty with a soft ginger and peach fruitiness along with caramel and spicecake. This is a very good beer.

    Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet honey, grains, light smoke, dough, spicy clove, with light citrus and some alcohol as well. Taste was sweet and malty, with nuts, and more dough, with a dry, black pepper, alcohol finish.
