Kulmbacher Eisbock by Kulmbacher Brauerei

Posted by BeerMaven | Beer Reviews | Posted on January 31st

This dark beer pours an almost black color with a thick tan head.  This beer is heavy on the malt flavors and for good reason, it’s brewed with five different malt varieties!  The aroma contains hints of dried druits like figs and apricots.  On the palate you can expect a complexity of flavors.  Caramel, chocolate and roasted coffee are balanced out by some hints of fig.  This is definitely a beer to make you warm and toasty.

    What a wonderful beer. And I had some Sunday (not thinking I’d see this in person again!) that a friend saved for two years. Definitely some fruit character (I got grape), as well as a malt richness and pleasant strength. Hard to find, so if you do, don’t pass it up.
    Important to note is that this style (Eisbock) is the result of freezing (concentrating) the beer for more strength.
