4.2/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
pours like like flat coke. black, but not completely, some shades of dark brown, but no head at all. the appearance isn't so appetizing given the resemblance to undesirable cola, but fortunately the nose makes up for it.
smells intense! spicy, malty clove, fruity, licorice and gum, booze. there's a lot going on, and it smells strong. ditto for taste. this is one healthy brew. yes it is strong compared to your normal 5% beer, but amazingly balanced and approachable compared to your normal 12% cabernet savignon. mouthfeel is chewy, almost syrupy. heavy and sweet but there's a nice bitter kick in the aftertaste.
i've only had a couple of each, but i think i prefer this to the original aventinus weizenbock, perhaps because of the ridiculously high abv! i can only imagine having 1 at a time, but i enjoyed this time and look forward to the next.

4.18/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
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.
