Many thanks to rtepiak for this bottle!
A: Looks a lot like a quad. Dark-ish murky brown color with 3 fingers worth of a light beige head. Retention is good and lacing is correct.
S: Well, this is a banana bread in a beer. Plain and simple. There is a lot of sweet caramel/toffee breadyness with a lot of cinnamon, vanilla and cloves. Obviously, the one thing you notice the most is the HUGE banana aroma that is well supported by other fruits like: raisins, pear, red apples and a very sweet peach. Some flower-y characteristics in there.
T: Follows the nose with the huge banana bread taste. Banana and sweet molasses, caramel and toffee breadyness blends together to make this really good beer. Just as strong are: vanilla, cinnamon and cloves. Raisins, pear, red apples and those commercial fruit salad peaches. The flower-y characterisitics are replaced by a pretty big alcohol flavor that takes out about .5 . Otherwise, a near perfect brew.
M: Heavy body with a very sticky feel. Carbonation is medium to low. Wish it would have been less sticky.
O: This is a truly amazing brew. Gets the banana bread taste like no other beer has ever had. Just a tiny tad too sweet, would have preferred a bit more nut-like taste in the brew (but for this I guess I only need to drink the regular Aventinus). Drinkability is pretty high for a beer this strong.

4/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Dark maple syrup brown, cloudy, a finger of light beige head, opaque so can’t see any carbonation.
S: Very weizen like, dark fruits like dates and figs, ripe bananas, floral, black pepper, ripe banana peels, a slight fermented fruit.
T: Big weizen flavours, dark fruit, dates and figs, ripe bananas, tannic, sweet, big alcohol flavours, little bitterness. Brown sugar.
M: Thick, weighty syrupy body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation.
O: My first in this style. A strong beer that’s well done and a sipper, but very drinkable. Complex good flavours, reminiscent of a weizen.
