Pours a quite cloudy deep mahogany brown, possibly not as opaque as it could have been. The sediment was quite compact in the bottom and despite swirling the last couple of centimetres of beer, much of it would not be moved. Head is a filmy crown of yellowish-beige bubbles. Good static lacing, and the body looks pleasantly heavy. Lovely looking beer.

Nose is lovely and redolent with big dark wheat characters, but it's so lovely and deep and rich, refined and complex. Slight subtle hints of booze and smoke, and the roasted characters are very pleasant. The boozy sweetness even gives off unusual aromas of port. It's a truly excellent nose.

Taste is big and slightly boozy, although perhaps not as immediately hot and spiritous as I thought it might be. Round wheat notes are noticeable, but there's a welling of slightly metallic, medicinal characters on the back, which while not having the strong heat of booze, do give the bite of continental schnapps. Cherries and appleskin are hinted at. Feel is smooth at the start, but has a pleasant acidity coming through to mingle with the light astringency of the booze.

This is a lovely beer. It's surprising just how gentle it is for all its extremity. It really stays true to its weizen roots, which give it a lovely roundness, and temper the big and boozy notes that appear throughout.

Take the regular Avenitus wheat doppelbock and pour in a shot of whiskey! I don't want to simplify it, but that's what this reminded me of. Poured a large head, retained for a few minutes, and then disappeared entirely (no lace at all). Initially, tasted very much like a somewhat maltier and smoother dark wheat beer (lots of clove, refreshing). As I progressed, however, the alcohol became more and more noticable. By the end, quite boozy (as much as I've tasted in a beer). Still, quite enjoyable and impressive (but be "vewy, vewy cayweful!!")

Picked this up, based on the recommendations of the authors of The Naked Pint. So glad I tried it, outstanding beer. Smooth, warm and intense all at the same time. Appearance: dark brown, reddish, very little head or lacing. Feel: almost syrupy and thick, maybe slightly viscous but the alcohol taste pushes through so it's not overly sickly sweet. Taste: cloves, bananas, malt, dark fruits, definitely can taste the alcohol but not in an obnoxious way. Smell: bananas, cloves, dark fruit. Drinkability: I probably wouldn't want more than one of these in a setting, due to the high alcohol content but I'll definitely have an occasional one for a special treat.
