Bottle into red wine glass, bottle number 2009/05514.
Pours very dark brown, murky, with a one-finger bone-white head that settles into a dense cap.
Nose is darker, denser, murkier, earthier than the standard Aventinus. Gone are the massive clove phenolics of Aventinus, instead we have a deep, dark fruitiness that, in addition to notes of fig, raisins, and cinnamon, pulls from a rich, earthy body. Dark and bready.
Taste carries many of the same notes as standard Aventinus, but twisted - deeper, darker, fuller, more robust. Notes of figs, red grapes, raisins strike first, with earthy brown sugar sweetness made spicy, melding with he clove and picking up notes of cinnamon from the sharp alcohol. Very dry, but at the same time, rich and full of dark flavor. Finish is earthy, with a nice alcohol bite and big clove and cinnamon presence.
Mouthfeel is crisply carbonated, which combines with the alcohol bite to give this one a sharpness that belies the rich, full body.
Drinkability is this one's only weak point. The flavors are rich and intense, and the alcohol has a potent bite to it that makes this one a fantastic sipper that should be treated with care and caution.
