4.83/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle; dated 2008. The bottle comes in a paper wrapping covered with factoids about that year -- a fun little read. Pours the same beautiful dark red/brown as the non-aged Aventinus.
Smell: amazing what 6 years in a cave does to this beer. Gone is the big banana/ester/dark fruit smell that dominates the non-aged version. Now there are more malts, bread, but also a different fruity aroma more like a good wine.
Taste: Wow. Just the best German beer I've ever had. More like a doppelback than a wheat beer. Whereas the non-aged version of this reminds me of a deluxe hefe, this beer reminds more of, say, Ayinger Celebrator, but so much better and more complex.
Mouthfeel is smooth. No other word for it.
Overall, as noted, the most interesting and best German beer I've yet had.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - Poured with a four-finger, creamy and lightly tan head. Lots of lacing, and dissipates quickly. The color is a dark burnt orange. Very cloudy, can't really see through it. Very bubbly.

S - Strong wheat notes. Malty and some sweet dark fruits.

T - Sweet dark fruits at the front, followed by a malty middle. The finish is wheaty. Not bitter at all.

M - Medium heavy to thick in body. Alcohol and carbonation burn are minor.

O - Really like the taste of this one. I like the maltiness and sweetness. Wheat is not necessarily my favorite taste, but it works here. My favorite weizenbock so far.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured a dark ruby color, the color of a British style porter, around 30 to 40 SRM, with a thick, white, long-lasting head and plenty of yeast in suspension. Creamy mouthfeel. Rich, malty sweetness with a mildly tart finish. Aromas of clove and grapes and berries. No hop aroma, mild to no hop bitterness, mild to no alcohol. This is the benchmark for a wheat dopplebock. Rich, complex and fruity.
