Appearance Dark brown in color with lots of carbonation and a great head, but little lacing.
Smell Huge dark yeast and malt aromas along with a variety of sweets. Raw sugar stands out to me, but there are also strong sticky caramel notes, bananas, and other ripe fruits. Well done.
Taste - This is a symphony of flavors. It is brewed in Munchen, Bayern, the home of great beer.
The dunkel weizen aspect is awesome, a hair sweeter than the standard. The carbonation is middling, the yeast deep, raw, and intricate to the flavor, and the dark, burnt taste is present but not porteresque. The huge sugars from the nose kick in as well, making this a mouthful.
The other half of the blend is the doppel bock. Here Aventinus shines as well. The burnt taste (different from the dunkles weizen flavors) is classic bock and, somehow, very distinctive from but not overpowering to the other aspects of the beer.
Together the myriad flavors add up to a smooth, most complex, slightly intoxicating (8.0 ABV) masterpiece. The Aventinus Wheat Doppelbock is an amazing accomplishment within the brewing industry. Ive never tasted anything like it.
Mouthfeel A little off carbonation for a weitzen, but right on for a doppelbock. Its not perfect, but really good.
Drinkability In Germany a case of beer consists of 20 bottles like this in a plastic milk bottle type of carrier, and they are ribbed for stacking on top of one another. Id like to have a walk-in cooler in my house and these things stacked to the ceiling. This went down exceptionally well.
Comments I got down to the 39th review (high-low) before finding anything lower than a four (Im number 40). This is the real deal and not just my partialness to weitzens and bocks. Its incredible, and easily one of my favorite beers of all time.
Update: Reviewed 11/23/04 and raising the Mouthfeel from 4.0 to 4.5. This beer is utterly consistant from year to year.
