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.

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.
