Getting around to reviewing what many would call a classic. It has been several years since I have had this brew.

A- Poured to my tulip glass with a dark red-brown body that hardly allows light to pierce it. A silky, creamy thick head rises up to one finger with impressive retention at such high ABV. Lacing is only spotty for me but the ring that remains on the beer is thick and creamy.

S- Concentrated German yeast jumps out of the glass with a nice malty sweetness behind it. Whopping aromas of banana, clove, dark sugars, dates, figs, raisin, malt syrup and caramel.

T- Follows closely to the nose with a semi-sweet, intense malt and yeast driven flavor. Malts bring a sweet, but not cloying, flavor with notes of toast, light cocoa, caramel and brown sugar. Surplus of fruit esters and yeasty notes of plums, soy, dates, spices, banana, clove and alcohol.

MF- Thick bodied with a texture that is creamy, syrupy and oily. Somehow the carbonation is on the very high, foamy end but falls onto the palate as smooth as I have found in any beer. Finishes with an appropriate alcohol warmth.

A huge beer that drinks big but has some important key characteristics. The mouthfeel is so extremely smooth and creamy that it could probably support a 20% AVB, unreal MF in this one. There is nothing harsh in the beer or overdone, it finds a nice balance of sweetness, alcohol and huge flavors.

Just for info: there's a new label style that leaves out the word 'weizen'.

This beer is super intense. It pours a murky brown colour with very little head. Not all that appetizing. However, the smell is really pleasant, completely overloaded with spices. The first whiff really hits you. The alcohol is definitely present in the taste, but not nearly as much as yo might expect from a 12% beer. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Not a session beer, but good for once in a while!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: This beer poured a deep amber to brown color. It poured with a decent creamy tan head.

Smell: This beer has a very strong aroma of dried fruit, bready malt, sweet tropical fruit, and alcohol. It has a very sweet smell.

Taste: The taste is very similar to the smell. It is rich with a creamy mouthfeel. The carbonation is low and the finish is dry. Flavors of dried fruit and sweet malt are strong and there is a slight tartness. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy.

Overall: This beer is very good for its style. It is not my favorite style, but it is wonderful with grilled pork and chocolate.
