Poured this into one of my favorite glasses: my Aventinus glass of course.

It develops a two inch thick head that holds for a good while. The beer is a hazy shade of brown...caramel colored with a lighter shade at the edges.

Some dunkel-like smells...banana esters and cloves...and lots of malts with leather and alcohol notes.

Strong sense of alcohol with brown bread and bananas. Everything that is Aventinus, only stronger. It's as if they took Aventinus and concentrated it by freezing it and then letting some of the water content dissipate when it warmed back up. Oh wait...

Not as drinkable as the standard version due to the alcohol concentration, but it still has the nice body and carries the quailty that Schneider is famous for.

11.2 oz brown bottle
"Bottle number: 2007 / 02443"

a: A hazy brown with a fizzy light tan head.

s: The nose has the sweet bubble gum/banana aromas of a Hefeweizen.
Some cloves, dark fruit and alcohol in there as well.

t: Prunes, figs, banana caramel and sweet malt make up the bulk of the flavor.
The sweetness of the malt is similar to a cola. Very complex, reminds me of a dessert wine.

m: Carbonation like a cola, but a bit syrupy and chewy.

d: It is very sweet, I wouldn't want more than one.
Its an enjoyable experience though, very interesting.
The alcohol is noticeable, but for 12% it doesn't have much burn.
I would reccomend trying this one.

Many thanks to rtepiak for this bottle!

A: Looks a lot like a quad. Dark-ish murky brown color with 3 fingers worth of a light beige head. Retention is good and lacing is correct.

S: Well, this is a banana bread in a beer. Plain and simple. There is a lot of sweet caramel/toffee breadyness with a lot of cinnamon, vanilla and cloves. Obviously, the one thing you notice the most is the HUGE banana aroma that is well supported by other fruits like: raisins, pear, red apples and a very sweet peach. Some flower-y characteristics in there.

T: Follows the nose with the huge banana bread taste. Banana and sweet molasses, caramel and toffee breadyness blends together to make this really good beer. Just as strong are: vanilla, cinnamon and cloves. Raisins, pear, red apples and those commercial fruit salad peaches. The flower-y characterisitics are replaced by a pretty big alcohol flavor that takes out about .5 . Otherwise, a near perfect brew.

M: Heavy body with a very sticky feel. Carbonation is medium to low. Wish it would have been less sticky.

O: This is a truly amazing brew. Gets the banana bread taste like no other beer has ever had. Just a tiny tad too sweet, would have preferred a bit more nut-like taste in the brew (but for this I guess I only need to drink the regular Aventinus). Drinkability is pretty high for a beer this strong.
