Oh my. At first I thought something was wrong with this beer- it poured think and cloudy. Then I remembered, well, this is a special beer, and the combination of wheat, dunkel and bock, and then sorta frozen, I really shouldn't judge until I take a taste. Very malty, bready aroma's. Taste is, like....a regular Aventinus on steroids, but legal. Such an intense flavor it's almost hard to decribe . There is sweetness, and some traditonal weizen flavors as well- banna and clove. But everything is strong AND mellow. That's the beaty of this beer. Just an exceptional beer. Very warming and delightful by the fire.

4.18/5 rDev -1.4%

Appearance: Pours with half a finger of soft white head. The color is dark brown with some lighter touches around the edges. Active carbonation is very light.
Smell: Bright cloves and bananas explode out of the bottle. Dark fruits with accents of plums, papaya, cedar, and tobacco work their way on to the scene after the front. There is a sting of booze on the back end that really pulls your attention, but not in a negative way.
Taste: Spices and booze hit on the front. Dark fruits, bananas, and cloves warm up on the body. That warming heat lingers throughout the body and into the finish. Earth and tobacco go well with the booze on the back end. Exotic spices round this one out.
Mouthfeel: I kind of love the tongue numbing booze this one brings. Lots of fruits and spices play a great compliment as well.
Overall: My first Eisbock and this was a treat. Reminded me of a big boozy quad. Glad I got a classic of the style to establish a benchmark.
