Aventinus weizen eisbock is heaven in a bottle. The first taste will blow away your taste buds. I like this beer because the potent taste of alcohol is so pungent it almost tastes like acetone (but in a good way). I have noticed with this brew you must find it as fresh as possible, stay away from bottles over a year old. After one year much of the flavor depreciates.

Appearance: somewhat dark, yet somewhat light mixture

Smell: pungent alcohol medium hopped yet sweet.

Taste: all around well balanced taste, the alcohol taste will blow you away, in a good way.

Mouthfeel: light-medium, not fullbodied

Overall: at $4.99 a bottle this is worth it. I have never tasted a better beer. I give it an overall rating of 666!

A: Aventinus is tree-bark brown with a ton of haze. Head is pretty much absent.

S: potent bouquet, dominated by banana with heavy clove and brandy notes as well.

T: perfect balance is achieved through the sweet bananas, the spicy clove, and spicy ethanol. Very delicious

M: heavy carbonation is a nice contrast to the medium body of the brew.

D: this is a must try for anyone that wants to see the extreme side of the hefe. All the same flavors are here, they've just been amplified. Worth seeking out.

Poured from a bottle, into a bell glass, at 40 degrees F.

A: The pour is a cloudy dark brown, like old hickory wood. A thick head of very pale tan forms atop the beer, though lacing is more or less nonexistent (forms quickly, then slides right down the side of the glass). Nigh no light gets through the beer, just enough to let one know this is a seriously dark brown, cloudy brew. Bubbles rise slowly as it sits in the glass.

S: While I am tempted to simply write "awesome in the true sense of the word", that's not exactly helpful. The aroma is malt in all its best forms - toasty, bready toffee caramel goodness. Notes of banana and raisin wreathe through the nose beneath the malt bouquet.

T: Perfect.Toast, cracker, warm whole grain bread, caramel, and toffee, all singing in perfect harmony. Sweetness is undiluted in this beer. Fruity notes pull through as it moves along the palate, bananas and raisins spiced with clove and coriander, and some black cherries. The finish lasts a long while, toffee-slathered toast. The alcohol content is present, but as a background note, adding primarily the warmth.

M: Rich silk syrup, dancing lively and sparkling across the palate, sticking to every surface long after it passes.

O: This is one of my favorite beers brewed, ever, if not my absolute favorite. And yes, I've had BCBS, Ola Dubh Special Reserve 30, St Bernardus Abt 12, Espresso Aged Yeti, Celebrator...I would order this over any of those.
