I used to be a weekly drinker of Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus for many years back in the days when you could buy it here Bangkok. So, I was pleasantly suprised to find how different this beer was despite the similar purple label.
Most strikingly different is the mouthfeel. The former is quite similar to iced tea, where as this one is stunningly silky and heavy, just gourgeous.
The taste is all that most previous posters have said here and I would add that for me I blown away by how the warming alcohol integrates with the chocolate, fig, cherry flavor and how all of that combines with the mouthfeel.
I had my bottle with a plate of softer Italian cheeses, the names of which i have no idea, but some of which I would say were roughly similar to parmesan that has the wetness and gooeyness of a Muenster. Just an amazing way to have this beer, which is how you can have it at Brew Beers & Ciders on Soi Thong Lor, Soi 13 in Bangkok an incredible new beer oasis in the world's capital of boring beer which offers 200 kinds of beer. Heroes these guys and the others who now seem to be successfully fighting off the triple whammy of three separate taxations that have effectively taxed imported beer 300 percent. Or at least for now.

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.
