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.

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.

This is a beer that will knock you on your butt if you aren't paying attention to that high abv. Poured a dark ruby color with a big head and lively carbonation. Head dissipated to a thin covering as I nursed this badboy. Smelled the typical weizen aromas and a bit of brown sugar or raisins. You get the same thing in the taste and get some real sweetness with the kick of alcohol. I could feel the alcohol more as the beer warmed while I nursed it. This Eisbock has a nice mouthfeel that has a bit of a medicinal feel to it. This Weizen-Eisbock hides the alcohol well though I still know it is there and therfore one in a sitting is more than enough for me.

11.2oz. brown skinny long-neck bottle with Bottle Number: 2008 / 02859 on back label. Three foil labels in all, mostly purple and silver.

Poured just above cellar temp into proper glassware, a lightly murked dark chestnut oak, with a finger of fizzly beige head. The head fizzled down to a ring and some patches with subtle carbonation, visibly.

The nose is spicy and sweet with malt, banana, clove, licorice, plum and a bit of alcohol. The taste is much the same with the sweetness right up front and the spiciness kicking in towards a some what dry finish. Along with the dry finish is a pleasant warming from the alcohol that is masked well for 12% ABV. A nice spice and malty aftertastes lingers long sfter the swallow. Very tasty brew.

Healthy body with dialed carbonation give a smooth mouthfell with a bit of tingle on the tongue in the dry finish. A very easy drinker for this rather big beer...highly recommended.
