Eisbock

A traditional Kulmbach specialty brewed by freezing a doppelbock and removing the ice to concentrate the flavor
and alcohol content (as well as any defects).  Eisbocks are not simply stronger doppelbocks; the name refers to the process of freezing and concentrating the beer. Some doppelbocks are stronger than Eisbocks. Extended lagering is often needed post-freezing to smooth the alcohol and enhance the malt and alcohol balance. Any fruitiness is due to Munich and other specialty malts, not yeast-derived esters developed during fermentation.

Commercial Examples:

Kulmbacher Reichelbräu Eisbock, Eggenberg Urbock Dunkel Eisbock, Niagara Eisbock, Capital Eisphyre, Southampton Eisbock

What The Beersluts have to say:

Eish we wish somebody would bring us one!
