Bottled January 14, 2011, so a little over 16 months old. Clean snifter for the pour.
Empties into the glass with a dense two-fingered head that is an absolute godsend with the 12% ABV in consideration. Incredible head retention for such a big beer. Residual yeast sediment swirled in definitely helps that department a bit. Opaque russet-brown color to the body. Looks rich and darker than my past eisbock experiences. Got some great alcohol legs.
This has an great nose! Smells like a candied version of the weizenbock. Caramel, hard tack candy, intensified clove, fried banana, booze sweetness, dark prune, apricot, and mild chocolate. The alcohol is smiling at me, but it's not overpowering.
Incredible. Chocolate-covered banana, cherry drop lozenge, toffee, candi sugar, spicy cloves, prune, bubblegum, cinnamon, canned pitted fruits, dark caramel, and lingering alcohol. Rummy with a quality booziness. Decadent. A dark German wheatwine. There's some lively vinous grape notes that are actually pretty standout, now that I thought of it. Healthy doses of sweet malts without the grainy notes. No huskiness, very very little tartness, and a pleasant sweetness. A hard-to-beat eisbock, in my opinion.
Smooth, but candied feel. Doesn't leave a whole lot of stickiness. Incredible carb presence that blows me away considering the strength and age of this beer.
Insanely drinkable eisbock with all of that great yumminess from the Aventinus Weizenbock. And, I thought Kulmbacher's was good. Best eisbock had to-date. One of the best beers had to-date. I know where I scored this bottle, and I WILL be back to clean out stock. Cheers!

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.
