Aventinus comes in murky and deep, purplish amber with a big cap of very finely bubbled, fluffy-creamy, light caramel toned color.
Awesome nose. Everything comes through in the flavor too. Bit of chocolate and raisin, lots of red grape and apple with a caramel drizzle, some banana and clove, wheaty-yeasty-estery, earthy-grassy hops come through as well, and spicy alcohol. Way too drinkable. Ridiculously tasty. Nice full-medium body, not too heavy, Perfect carb, loads of it (not too much though), fluffy-creamy-wheaty and very lightly crisp.
The BEST of the style, a classic, and one of my favorite brews.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%

Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
