What a wonderful experience to enjoy this masterpiece of brewing art! I was lucky enough to sample a bottle of 1999 vintage Aventinus at the Olney Ale House in Olney, MD (more about them in the Beerfly section). I must say that this is one of the finest winter warmers or dessert beers that I have ever tasted. It pours with a deep opaque body with garnet undertones and is topped by a dense beige head that demands you to taste this beer. And oh what a taste it is! Starting with the ripe, fruity nose of plums and cloves that hints at the taste to follow. A velety mouthful of warm, fresh baked bread with definite chocolate undertones. Despite its high alcohol level, there is an almost indistiguishable amount of alcoholic bite. The beer lingers on the back of the palate with a hint of toffee and clove spiciness that perfectly balance the tast of this marvel. This beer is truly a maltsters dream!

Prosit!

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.
