Redhook Ale Brewery – Eisbock 28 (Eisbock)

  • 11.00% ABV
  • Well this is my first Eisbock and while I dont know anything about Eisbock’s I do know about the craptastic Isehouse beer from the 90’s. Icehouse was a horrible beer from Miller/Coors/Bud (I dont remember which one) where they made a beer, froze it and then scraped off the ice. Basically the water freezes and the alky doesn’t which leaves you with a higher ABV beer. Great idea if you are a hobo and want to drink to forget your past but it doesn’t do much for the taste, at least for the Icehouse. It kind of works here tho. Go figure, the Germans had the original idea right and Americans fucked it all up. So what it is, is a super malty, high ABV beer any hobo would be proud to drink and hop a freight liner headed to Tulsa. Good but not for me.
