    I've wanted to try this for a couple of years. Which makes this extra tasty. Limited head retention, nice dark amber colour. Lots of fig, toffee, and caramel. Tame for 9.5%. Finish is a bready, sweet dried fruit flavour. Maybe a touch too sweet, but deserving of the reputation. A seasonal gem.

    Bottle courtesy of mgermani: Poured a deep cloudy brown color bock with a small bubbly head with almost no carbonation. Aroma of dry fruits (figs and plums) with some toffee malt. Taste is a mix between some sweet toffee and caramel malt with great notes of dry fruits such as figs and raisins. Body is full with some light carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really appreciated that one except maybe for being a bit too sweet and rich.

    Bottle: Pours a deep chestnut brown beer in thre glass with a 1 finger cap that vanishes instantly. Nose is primarily demerara sugar/molasses..some fig and raisin notes..wisps of fusil alcohol. Decent mouth feel.big malts, bulky body, smokey sugars, .toasty-molasses character. Front side is dominated by molasses/fig/toasted bread tastes, some light smoke and nutty undertones...mid palate it is still a fairly 3 dimensional lager where some light herbal Hersbrucker hops show up ( finally) with all the main tastes remaining relatively distinct...finish is long and wet with big bread and dried fruit in the after taste. One of Canada’s better eisbocks...do something the heading on this brew ( like pump up the unmalted protiens and you’ll be there VBC.

    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.
