Sequoia Brewing German Eisbock

sequoia brewing eisbock 1
Sequoia Brewing German Eisbock. 9% abv. Dark brown color with a finger of tan head. Good retention and lace that lingers throughout. Rich nose of sweet malt, plum, chocolate. Front taste of malt, sweet fruit, plum, raisins, mild floral hops. Aftertaste of bitter berry, dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate. Big body. Mouthfeel is hot, thick, nearly syrupy. This is an excellent beer that stacks up to other eisbocks/eisenbocks out there. A perfect example of its category. Highly recommended.

From the brewery:

"German Eisbock is a strong, very full, malty lager, which gets its name from freezing and concentrating an already bock strength beer. A rich, sweet, malty flavor is balance by a noticeable alcohol presence which has been mellowing for 6 months in a lagering vessel. A large percentage of Munich Malts give the dessert style beer aromas and flavors reminiscent or dried plums, raisins, prunes and currents."
