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

Bottle dated: 2011 025869.

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.

Packaging: 330 ml brown bottle, pry-cap

Purchased: Single from Grace's, Nashville

A: Huge tan head of 5+ fingers sits on this semi-hazy, mahogany colored beer. A fair amount of lacing and head retention are present.

S: Rich and dark fruits are in the aromas, with caramel malt notes and some woody aspects. I get faint reminders of the typical weizen yeast smells of banana and clove. Delightful to smell.

T: Wow, this is a powerful tasting beer, full strength and of alcohol, like a bourbon. Savory, spicy, and sweet with fruit flavors such as raisin and plum.

M: Carbonation is in the medium to high range, with a full, creamy body. The finish is rich and full of alcohol warming. Aftertastes are of molasses and caramel, with a spicy kick to boot.

O: A very strong and complex beer, with reminders of both a weizen-bock and beer aged in spirit barrels. Highly recommend!

A- Pours a deep, almost purple tinged brown. Not an overwhelming head, though since it is from bottle and I made sure to pour it to produce a less than thick head...

S- Smells fruity, with some of those clove and spice smells of a good hefeweizen.

T- Fruity and spicy, like if you crossed a really good hefeweizen with a proper ale. Complex and very tasty.

M- A good full mouth feel, but not to syrupy or anything.

O- I will no doubt always have this beer in my fridge. Then again, I'm slightly biased in that I always liked their hefeweizens above all others I have tried. Even so, definitely try to get this one, you will not regret it!
