My roommate Adam picked up a case of Kulmbacher Eisbock and I decided to barter for one of them. The beer pour a deep dark brown with minimal head. The aroma is sweet and malty, with a hint of alcohol. The taste is smooth and sweet with accents of dark chocolate. The beer has a bitter finish due to the dark chocolate taste. It also finishes a little bit dry. The taste of alcohol isn't too prevalent even though the aroma hints at it. The alcohol content is 9.2% ABV. I think this beer was excellent and of high quality. The chocolate taste and dark color is getting me in the mood for the winter seasonals, and I think this would be a great beer on a blustery cold night.
