Trapped Under EisBock by Voodoo Brewing Company
Eisbock
14.00 % ABV

A classic lager of flavor and heritage. This dopplebock is aged for 3 months frozen, then transferred onto Michigan Sour Cherries for 3 more months. We then bottle condition it at the brewery cellar for over a year. This is named after one of my favorite songs from a band that like lager, started out being intense and mellowed over time. Cheers and Ride the Lightning!

Received this brew from Gibby and have been excited to try it arrived. I love anything with fruit (especially cherries) and I’m expecting this brew to be pretty damned intense. Drank from my Ithaca Excelsior tulip while watching the Cowboys vs. Patriots.

Appearance- Pours a murky brownish copper with a fairly decent fizzy half finger light sandy head. A pretty decent cap and collar remains most of the beer. Not much lacing but not bad looking considering the booze in this beer.
Smell- Sort of bready with a fair amount of caramel and dark fruits. Sort of has an underlying sweetness to it that I hope isn’t present in the taste. Rum soaked raisins and prunes juice are really the majority of the nose once it warms slightly. I don’t get any tart cherries but there is a sort of dark black cherry like scent. No trace of the 14%.
Taste- Wow, not at ALL what I was expecting. The flavors are very mellow and well rounded. Sort of bready, almost whole wheat like as the maltiness really comes through from the start. The expected caramel notes are there but the beer really isn’t sweet in the least. Not really any of the dark fruit I got in the nose and absolutely no cherry! Very surprising. The finish is earthy and maybe a touch of lingering raison.
Mouthfeel- Pretty thin as you’d probably expect with a surprisingly dry finish and very little alcohol warming. The carbonation is fairly minimal as well which is surprising considering the head.
Drinkability- I was a little worried about this one and drinking it by myself this afternoon. I won’t have any problem, I assure you. The beer is dangerously drinkable for 14% and although not as intensely flavored as I was expecting (or hoped), it’s still very tasty. Thanks much Jeff!
