This is a truely amazing beer! When I first reviewed Aventinus 8 or 9 months ago, I didn't care for it very much... I can only imagine that I a) got a bad bottle or b) have different tastes in beer now. It pours a cloudy brown, with an impressive and persistent tan head. The aroma is a beautiful mix of banana, clove, and caramel. Flavor is quite complex, with clove, fig, caramel, and a touch of banana. Has a full body with medium carbonation, that makes for a very smooth and refreshing finish.
This is a dangerously drinkable beer, and something I can see myself coming back to again and again.

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.
