I was a bit surprised, based on my findings, to see Aventinus with a 91 score. I feel it's a good beer, but for some reason, it's just not that good to me. This could be a case of sensory overload, however, as I can tell there's a lot going on in this bock's aroma and tastes, but it's hard to decifer exactly what it is. Upon pouring there was a nice firm tan head, and a murky, turbid, brown body that reminded me of swamp water...unreal. Then poof, the heads gone, not a trace, not even a whisper of head or lace for much of the drink. Aromas were thick with a yeasty, fruity, clovelike smell, that was very hard to decern. The taste also, was very complex wtih fruit and floral flavors and a hint of bitterness upfront and fading alcohol on the back end. Overall, a very fine drink, I would have again, but somehow I just don't understand the super high rating.

Poured from a 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a a tulip glass. Now the most interesting part is not what came out if the bottle but what stayed in it. At some point I had stored the bottle on its side in a wine fridge (for 3 months after buying it) and found an exorbitant amount of yeast stuck to the side of the bottle. Now to me this is a good thing keeping natural unfiltered flavor with the brew especially the Bavarian style. Unlike any other beer this was a cloudy chocolate brown color. There was large amount of white head when poured violently from the bottle. Hints of chocolate malt taste similar to the color. Has the sweetness that accompanies bocks but also the breast wheat vibe. Has a good balance between wheat and malt with an elevated abv of 8.2% which is barely noticeable to the pAlate.
Don't think I've had a beer of this style before. It seems like American craft brewers would have their work cut out for them with this style.
