Aventinus pours a gorgeous caramel-brown color with a thick, creamy head that shows great retention. The nose is full of a delicious banana-bread smell (banana and spices), there are also notes of hops and citrus. The mouthfeel on this medium-bodied beer is quite smooth with a nice, dry finish. The taste is super balanced, picking up on the same bready, banana, peppery notes from the smell. Great use of hops to cut through the sweet, maltyness of this beer.

A: Hazy and caramel colored with well-retained foamy head, looks like a dark unfiltered cider (3/3)
S: Pretty strong banana and alcohol smell, reminiscent of strawberry-banana yogurt (10/12)
T: Sweet malt flavor balanced by very strong alcohol--an indistinguishable tang at the end of the sip (15/20)
M: Well-carbonated with dry finish (5/5)
O: 12% alcohol, you say? Yeah, you can tell. But honestly there’s a lot of dryness and malt character to balance it out. Would I drink this every day? No. But if someone asks me to recommend an eisbock, this’ll be #1 on my list. (7/10)
40/50

Poured from a 500ml bottle, 2013 vintage.

Pours a light murky brown. Flavor is rich without being too sweet. Figs and dates are prominent. Went really well with the pepper steaks i had.

Sweet and subtle at 12% ABV. This one's nice amber color finishes with currant, grape, and a hint of smokey flavor. One of my favorite new finds.
