look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Hazy brownish yellow; thin foamy head that dissipates to a slight film; okay lacing

S: Subtle banana and cloves; grainy and earthy; wet grains with something funky but interesting--spearmint? So layered and complex; alcohol sits pleasantly at the back of the nostril stinging it a bit

T: Grainy with high alcohol presence; earthy/straw quality; cloves and bananas are prevalent too

F: Good even coat--a bit creamy

D: Strong- this is a sipper but a very good beer nonetheless

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured a very murky brown with lots of sediment and a creamy thick tan head with great retention.

Smell is huge - Bananas, Yeast, alcohol, raisons, and other dark fruits. Very Sweet.

Taste is very fruity with hints of bananas, tangerine, dates, and other dark fruits, overall slightly sweet, but not overwhelming. Also a bit of alcohol flavor and yeast.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and thick.

Overall a very tasty treat, and very easy to drink.

Looking forward to this for sometime now. I remember trying this a year or two ago and didnt enjoy it, but this was prior to me learning more about beer and learning to enjoy real beer. Aventinus is without a doubt, my favorite beer, thus trying this is a treat.

Poured a beautifully thick dark hazy brown with a slight red touch. Wonderfull head rises up the glass.
Smell: Dates, spice, slight astringent alcohol.
Taste: SPICE, figs, Overripe banada. So wonderfull. More dense than the regular aventinus and more lingering spice. Unbelievable.

What a great beer, superb. I find it hard to believe ints 12% as i can not really taste that high of an alcohol content.

Had this many years ago, and vaguely remember it as intensely raisiny and didn't really like it at the time. Since then I've gotten pretty fond of Aventinus itself, and got this as a gift recently.

Dark opaque mahogany, billowing head of foam that settles after awhile, leaving behind flecks of lace. Thin broken surface skim.

Aromas of banana, rum, molasses. Slight alcohol and sweet grain as it warms.

Caramel and bananas, brown sugar, rum, slight bite of alcohol heat. Smooth and full bodied, chewy and rich. A big beer perfect for a snowy December night.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle. bottle # 2005/11885

hazy amber with a voluminous tan head. Head dissipates rather quickly and leaves spotty lacing.

Aroma is cooked banana, dark brown sugar, vanilla, wisps of wheat, and a touch of alcohol.

flavor is reminiscent of fresh warm banana bread, with some brown sugar and clovey spice, a little wheat and warming alcohol.

Tasty, but the sweetness and high abv would make it hard to drink more than one in a sitting.
