Arguably the best beer in the WORLD!!!
Schneider Aventinus is the beer that made a craft beer lover out of me. I have enjoyed this dozens of times and the magic never seems to fade.
(Did you know that bock beers are actually a style of lager?)
Stunning color, rich, deep and lovely dark brown-red-black with a great 2 finger head.
Smells of all the nutty, cocoa-ey, molasses-ey, and espresso-ey goodness of all that is doppelbock.
Tastes of the heavens. This is heavy without being weighty, rich without being overpowering, and supremely balanced.
The texture is the best I have had from bottle and pretty much draft (with the exception of the great nitro-tap stouts).
So drinkable it is with the great balance and smooth finish.

I'm glad I can finally leave a review of Aventinus, a brew I found in Germany a year ago and have managed to enjoy often since then.
Served in a 1 pint plus .9 fl. oz. bottle, no freshness date marked.
A: Pours a nice, deep brown. Good sized tan head with nice lacing. Pretty much clear, with some slight clouding.
S: Has an undoubtedly alcoholic scent, along with notes of clove, fruit and banana.
T: Wow. I've heard more than one reviewer call Aventinus "The Nectar of the Gods" and I couldn't agree more. Starts off sweet with a little bit of fruity tang, plus some slight caramel flavors. Finishes more with clove and an alcoholic taste.
M: For the most part, heavy and creamy... though there is paradoxally a crispness to the beer as well. Incredibly pleasant warming alcohol feel as well.
D: I would only suggest one or two of these in a night, but that doesn't mean that the beer has low drinkability. Rather, I could happily have Aventinus every night.
Notes: A golden standard for the Weizenbock, and for quality brewing in general. Probably as close to a perfect beer as can be found on earth.
