This poured to a dark brown with hints of purple and red. The head is large and fluffy, and sticks around through the duration of the glass. The whole thing just looks great.
Wheat malts are detectable in the taste up front, with a strong bock-style punch of alcohol at the end of the taste. The alcoholic content is very apparent but not overwhelming. It feels sharp in the mouth without offending, and it's pretty easy to drink considering what's inside.
While I felt the Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock was good but perhaps a touch overdone, this beer is simply outstanding.

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.
