Had this beer tens of times before, but this is my first time reviewing it.
A – Pours a dark, ruddy brown with a furiously effervescent head which recedes to bald batches and then baldness within a couple of minutes. Not typical of this beer, so I’ll tack this down to this beer having travelled thousands of miles.
S – Smells sweet and fruity. Perfumed-malt. Clear phenolic character. Some booze. Soreen loaf.
T – Not as sweet or fruity as the nose. Wheat, boozy malt and a semi-sweet yeast flavour predominate.
M – Fairly high carbonation makes this remarkably refreshing for a fairly strong and dark beer. Mouthfeel is bang on; it would be cloying if it were much heavier, and would fail to carry the abv., and strong malty-wheat flavours if it were lighter.
O – I’ve drunk this beer at least an order of magnitude more than any other beer on the planet. At university I’d routinely drink 2-3 of these bad boys when I’d sit down to write an essay. This beer made a significant contribution towards my graduating from that institution. Tap 6 Aventinus will always be a special beer for me and as such it’s hard for me to separate my assessment of this beer as a beer from the many happy memories it has provided me with and long nights it has accompanied me on. Funnily enough I started drinking it for purely pragmatic reasons; it provided the best balance between affordability, flavour and high abv., but over time I really started to appreciate it for the classic brew that it is.

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.
