Pured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark brown/copper color that is very dynamic. Reds, yellows and browns make up the body. There is also lasting and foamy off-white head that leaves a dissipating lacing.
S: The aroma is a pleasant surprise from such a dark, harsh looking beer. It's sweet in a way. Clove touches the nose first and malts make up most of the aroma. There is a heavy earthiness to it all but the smell is weightless in a way with notes of banana and citrus punctuating it. There is also just a perfect hint of alcohol completing one of the most well-rounded but unique smells I've ever experienced.
T: Complex and transcendent. Immediately contradictory but upon reflection, complimentary. Dark and heavy with alcohol notes, but also fruity and light with malts and banana giving this beer a robust sweetness that isn't sugary or overbearing at all. A little funk, a little hops complete it all.
M: Rich, smooth, light, carbonated, it's really just perfect. There's a little bit of alcohol burn that I want to take points off for, but it is really fine and maybe even beneficial to the feel. I'm usually more harsh on feel, but this leaves me with no room to complain.
O: There are no complaints here. Aventinus is complex but immediately enjoyable. This is a beer that can change perception and change minds on a style or a brewing tradition. It has mine.

Poured a dark ruby color, the color of a British style porter, around 30 to 40 SRM, with a thick, white, long-lasting head and plenty of yeast in suspension. Creamy mouthfeel. Rich, malty sweetness with a mildly tart finish. Aromas of clove and grapes and berries. No hop aroma, mild to no hop bitterness, mild to no alcohol. This is the benchmark for a wheat dopplebock. Rich, complex and fruity.
