Perhaps the finest German beer I can buy bottled in Austin...who doesn't need to have an exceptional beer handy for those special occasions?
O.K.
I'm drinking this side-by-side with my second most favorite beer in the world...a bottled Andechs Dopplebock (my favorite is the draft dopplebock from the monastery in Bavaria).
The smell is wonderful...
The head's still there after 20 minutes...
I'm savouring the comparison...making it last. The head's still there...
The banana-rum bread description just before this one is very fitting. Throw in some raisons and maple syrup and you have it a bit closer....very sweet. VEEERY LOOOONNGGGG mouthfeel....as long as it gets with any beer I've ever had.
It's a wonderful thing...the only reason I don't drink it more regularly is to keep trying other beers and because beer drinkin' is like wearing clothes...how often do you wear your favorite shirt?
Anyone who loves rich alcohol-laden and flavor packed beers must try an Aventinus. You will not regret it, even if you don't love it as much as I.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: a medium murky cloudy brownish color with a minimal half finger eggshell head. No glass lacing.

S: lots of fruits and spicy clove smells. Some sweet caramel and yeast is prominent.

T: Wow this is amazing. Yeasty flavors jump with some wheat and dark fruits. Cherry, raisins, banana, clove, caramel, and some slight floral hops. Finish comes back to the wheat and dark fruits but finishes dry and satisfying. Wow, fantastic.

M: Full, coating, perfect carbonation, hardly any alcohol for the abv.

O: this is a terrific beer, one I would never guess I would love so much since this is not my favorite style. A fantastic beer.

This is a must try and will now be a staple in my fridge. Awesome.

Thanks to kjyost for this one.

Poured from a 500ml bottle, bottled in 2004. Special aged release by the brewery.

Pours a light brown body the color of light cola; head starts thick but disappears in the blink of an eye. Dark plums and molasses are in the aroma. Flavor is a shell of what it could be but there are glimpses of what i know this beer is. Little carbonation and a bit of oxidation finish things off. Nice marketing ploy by the brewery but this should not be aged so long IMO.
