One of my favorite beers of all time. I've tried this many times, both in the bottle (and years later on tap) at the Schneider Brewery's flagship restaurant in Munich. As you would expect, it was served in the distinctive narrow bottomed, wide-mouthed Aventinus glass.
Appearance is very dark brown, with a purplish tinge. Excellent, long-lasting head.
The thought of the aroma still brings a smile to my face. Chocolate-molasses with a bit of wheat thrown in for good measure.
The flavor is outstanding, sweet and malty with strains of more traditional weizen beer. (UPDATE: I should have said, Bavarian dunkeles weizen, i.e., "yes, we have no bananas..." ;o) Smooth, sweet finish.
Mouthfeel is very nice, with the excellent texture and carbonation tickling the roof of your mouth. Maybe the slightest bit sticky.
This brew is dangerously drinkable, as it's difficult to notice you're drinking a high-alcohol content beverage unless you've read the label. Use caution. ;)

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%

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.
