    I "missed" this. 100th percentile here and on RateBeer and I've had several of these over the years and it is average at best. I've had several vintages (2009, 2008, 2006, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001) and they all pretty much tasted the same to me. A nice burgundy colour with a very small cap. Aroma is mainly sweet malt and chocolate, not as much raspberry as one might think. Flavour is more of the same......sweet malt, chocolate, and a hint of tart raspberries. Again, not a favourite.

    A friend brought me this about a year ago, and I just found my notes now. It was mud brown, thin head, sour raspberry aroma and taste. Not all that enjoyable.

    Wow thanks eagle for scoring this one. Poured a redish brown with zero head and tons of sedimentation. Aroma was of chocolate and a tons of raspberries. Flavor was perfect, tart but not crazy raspberries with a well balanced chocolate/caramel, toasted malts. Solid beer.

    NorCal December '07 - What an unbelieveable beer in such a little bottle. I know the process of making an Eisbock is painstakingly difficult, but the results are proof positive that these guys know how it's done. An aroma of red vines, chocolate cake, raspberry puree, and a touch soy. Appearance is a dark reddish/brown color, minimal head. Flavor is like a burst of chocolate/raspberry flavor, nice toasted malts and a touch of oxidation. Alcohol is well hidden in this beer and it lets the raspberries and chocolate shine. Incredible beer.

    6.3 oz waxed bottle. Pours a dark red tinged brown, with a small tan head that fades very quickly to nothing. Due to lack of any head there's no lacing to speak of. Not much to look at, but it was to be expected with the high abv. Smell; the raspberries really jump out of the glass, and are mixed with a very rich chocolate aroma. A touch of caramel is present in the nose, along with a nice nutty background. Taste; as expected the raspberries are very evident in the flavor, and it definitely does not come of as artificial at all, which I'm very thankful for. The chocolate comes out next, and nearly as strongly as the raspberries do. The nutty flavors are very much present as well, and provide just enough of a bittering effect to offset the sweetness of the raspberries and chocolate. There's some hints of vinegar in the background that, surprisingly, seems to fit right in with everything ealse going on in this beer.. Mouthfeel/Drinkabilty; the mouthfeel on this one maybe the fullest, and mostly velvety of any beer that I've ever had. The drinkability is very good. Between the raspberries, chocolate, nuts and very full mouthfeel, this is like drinking a chocolate raspberry cake with a some walnuts or pecans sprinkled on top. This was my first beer of 2007, and boy was it a good one.

    Deep, slightly hazed red. The aroma is pound cake with raspberry filling and a bit of vanilla. Fairly tart, which blends nicely with the other flavors. Sweet.

    Woo hoo, Bert! What a kind beer buddy. 2004 vintage, appearance was burgundy brown with no head and lots of sedimentation floating around (mmmmm, good). The aroma was rich raspberry and rich chocolate, smelled like raspberry black chocolate cake, fine godiva chocolates. Flavor was chocolate and lightly tart strong raspberries. Definitely not cloying sweet, really quite nice, a great evening sipper if only it was more available. Mouthfeel was silky smooth, full, very nice. This is a great beer to experience. Re-rate, 2007 vintage in Mar 08, bottle from the generous Styles: Certainly a very nice production, but not quite as rich and decadent as the first time, caramel notes certainly playing a much larger role, the chocolate a little bit less over the top, raspberries, though, still present, assertive, and highly enjoyable. Alcohol also more detectable this time through. Quite drinkable, far from cloying, very nice product. Numbers would probably come out more like a 4.0 this time around. Dropping from my 4.4 rating to in between the two.

    6.3 oz bottle dated 2004. Pours a murky brownish red with a thin fizzy light beige head that quickly dissipates.

    The aroma is subdued raspberries, chocolate, caramel, toffee, some wood, and vinous alcohol.

    The flavor is sweet chocolate maltiness and tart raspberries, some oak and a crisp vinous slightly bitter alcohol finish. It's very rich and complex. The mouthfeel is medium full and very smooth.

    Overall, a very fine brew! It's very well balanced and very drinkable. I'm bummed it's such a small amount (and a bit pricey!).

    (6.3 oz bottle, 2004 vintage – drank in January 2006) – Poured a hazy deep red/brown beer with a rather large dark foamy head with great retention. Aroma of raspberry chocolate cake is quite evident with some port-like alcohol sensation. Taste is less sweet then expected as well as raspberry, which I had expected to be more dominant. Instead there is strong chocolate and caramel malt with a semi-sweet ending. Did not fit my expectation but is still very good nonetheless. I would now be very curious to try the raspberry-free eisbock.
