A: Poured a monstrous 2 finger head that billowed toward the sky like a hot air balloon. Color is a deep brown with etches of sunset red. Carbonation and lacing are plentiful but lacks retention.
S: The best I can describe it is the smell of a fall wheat field ready for harvest with some pumpkins and other fruit (apples, pear) around the perimeter.
T: Toasted wheat, cloves, pear, waffle cones.
Finishes with a banana chocolate flavor that lingers on the palate.
M: Deliciously smooth. The light fruitiness lends itself to a creaminess that blends well with the warmness of the ABV.
O: One of my "go to" German offerings, this brew brings layers of complexity that makes the cold days a little warmer.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
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.
