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.
