Capital Eisphyre

Capital Brewery

USA

This is an Eisbock, another well-done German style by the folks at Capital. It gives a little fire when there's ice outside (get it? No? Oh bite me). I bought this in July 2006, but I'm guessing this is a winter release, so by the time I finished this it was a year old, and still quite tasty. Beautiful red color, this had a nice malty flavor, with a little bit of fruit in it, and the alcohol sneaks up on you. I wished I saved the whole 4-pack until the winter started, but by Jan 2007 I only had one left. I'm an idiot.
