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

Bottle Date: 2010 038070 / Consumed: Aug. 2012

Serving Type: 2010 bottle poured into a snifter glass from World Market

Appearance: Dark brown / raisin-y with a single finger of head

Smell: Booze, wheat, dark fruit

Taste: This is awesome. Time has been kind to this beer and has produced what can only be described as "alcoholic raisin bran". It's literally like drinking an alcoholic version of the cereal.

Mouthfeel: Sweet with a little bit of burn. A little chewy like a beer of this quality should.

Overall: I like this one a lot, though time does not seem to tame the alcohol bite, so much as just bring out the rest of the flavors. It's a great beer and should not be ignored on the shelves, despite all of the newer craft beers out there.

My friend in DC has been raving about this brew for over a year now. He came up to visit me recently. So of course we go out to buy a few brews. He spotted the Aventinus and basically begged me to try it.

When he first poured be a glass, I saw that it had a caramel color, and a good amount of yeast. As the yeast slid to the bottom of the glass, you could see it giving off CO2. The foam had a nice coffee-milk sort of look.

The most important part: Taste. I'd have to say that this is a very well flavored wheat ale. I want to say it had a mango taste to it coupled with a strong wheat taste. Very smooth and easy to drink. Favorited.

Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours dark cloudy toffee brown with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Some bubbles can be seen rising from the side of the glass, but not many. It appears darker than the regular Aventinus. There are aromas of banana, sweet malt, bubblegum, dark fruits, sweet malts, and some alcohol. It is all the aromas I loved in the regular Aventinus, but intensified. The taste follows the nose. The banana flavors are strongly represented from the yeast. The sweet malt provides a nice backbone for this beer. There are dark fruits in the flavor as well. The alcohol is detectable in the taste, but it blends well with this beer. It does not come across as boozy, but well balanced. The body is full with solid carbonation. The beer is smooth with a clean finish. The alcohol provides a nice warming feel. I wouldn't mind having a few of these put away for cold winter months. This is an excellent beer that held up very well despite the age.
