4.45/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
500 ml bottle with 121122 coded onto the back, I assume a bottling date of Nov 22, 2012. I poured this bottle into my beer goblet for tasting.
Appearance: A hazy middling brown beer with ruby highlights when held to the light. A persistent one fingered head of light tan sits atop the beer looking very appealing.
Smell: Glorious spicy clove phenolics go along with deep malts.
Taste: Clove spice is very much apparent. No real sweetness to his very dry beer. It has a very spicy finish that goes on for a long time. Just enough earthy hops to balance the malt. The alcohol is very well hidden for an 8.2ABV beer.
Mouthfeel: Slightly thinner than I was expecting from the smell and color but no lightweight either. Soft and smooth can be used to describe the mouthfeel.
Overall: Having this beer encourages me to try to brew a weizenbock at home. A wonderful balance of wheat, darker malts, and spicy yeast. So good!

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.
