More information about Brauhaus Faust wooden barrel matured Eisbock

A legendary beer that is due to chance and a lazy journeyman.

Behind this beer specialty is an origin story that became a legend among brewers. It is said that the Eisbock has its origin in 1890. It has always been the task of the journeymen to clear the beer barrels from the yard into the cellar. One lazy Franconian journeyman brewer decided one evening to postpone this duty until the next day, triggering not only the wrath of his master, but also a very special process. In the course of the winter night, the bock beer in the barrels froze almost completely. The next morning, the master awaited his journeyman with a sermon and his punishment: the unruly journeyman was to drink the remaining liquid from the barrels. The presumed bad taste was to be a lesson to him. But instead of a punishment, drinking the beer was a real pleasure: the process of freezing had transformed the bock beer into a sweet specialty.

Nowadays, people no longer rely on the weather, but deliberately induce the process of freezing. After fermentation, the beer is frozen to increase the alcohol content. In addition, intense levels of flavor unfold in the process. To make them even more complex and sophisticated, the Eisbock is also aged in wooden barrels for several months.

The result of this complex process is a chestnut-colored beer with a browned, fine-pored head. Intense aromas of roasted malt, dried red fruits, woody sherry, chocolate and marzipan rise from the foam and tempt the first sip. A velvety-soft mouthfeel awaits, the Eisbock enchants with wonderful creaminess and a powerful body. The first impression is confirmed in the taste: roasted malt, toffee, dark dried fruits and chocolate combine to create a beer that almost passes for a liquid dessert. Delightfully sweet with a hint of bitter hops and subtle sour notes.
