Dark walnut color. Aromas of toasted nuts, fresh baked sweet bread, and herbed cornbread stuffing with a round, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish full body and a peppery, medium-length espresso, crema, smokehouse almonds, and mixed peppercorns finish. A rich and toasty lager for the cooler months.

Eisbocks are amber to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 8.5-14%. This is the strongest type of bock. It is made by chilling a doppelbock until ice is formed. At this point, the ice is removed, leaving behind a beer with a higher alcohol content. The resultant beer is rich and powerful, with a pronounced malt sweetness and a warm alcoholic finish. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Capital EisPhyre, Vancouver Island Hermannator Ice Bock and Kulmbacher Eisbock.
