BOD 2010. From the label tied on with a purple cord, "Therefore in 1999, the SCHNEIDER brewery decided to start aging a limited number of cases of AVENTINUS each year in their historical ice cellar in Kelheim with each batch held for a minimum of three years."

Pours a dark amber with a deep dark ruby hue. Outstanding head volume, good retention and excellent retention. The final pour delivers yeast sediment from bottle conditioning.

World Class rich complex nose of dark fruit (raisin, plum) over a rich malty caramel base. In the background are notes of banana and clove with a hint of chocolate.

Full bodied with a rich creamy texture. Well carbonated with rich effervescence from the middle on - palate perfection.

The flavor profile is World Class - intense, complex and perfectly balanced. It begins with a burst of raisin and plum that slowly yield to chocolate notes over a surprisingly subtle caramel sweetness. The middle effervesces into a burst of banana and clove. As these flavors fade, a subtle bitterness emerges as does a hint of alcohol. The finish is a slow fade with notes of bitter chocolate.

A: cloudy; medium brown in color; 1 finger off white head that receded quickly to a thin collar; no lacing;

S: toffee, raisins, Grape Nuts;

T: complex; no part of this is ever overwhelming; sweet malt up front; a touch of molasses at mid-palate; banana also present and increases from mid-palate through the finish; alcohol is warming and pleasant;

M: medium bodied; highly carbonated;

O: enjoyable; I expected a dark fruit character; also didn't get the bready profile common in the style;

look - very hazy brown color, nice frothy head with good retention

smell - strong smell of bananas with a hint of clove

taste - wow. spicy complexity hits the palate first. very malty. tastes like their could be some molasses or brown sugar involved. finishes dry and a tiny bit citrusy. super-well balanced.

feel - full-ish bodied. half smooth and half crisp. ABV is undetectable

overall - love it, recommend it, awesome beer

Although as much "true to style" as the versions from Weihenstephaner and New Glarus, the appearance on this weizenbock was a bit off-putting: very hazy, dishwasher brown, with minimal head, but good cling to the glass

More pronounced alcohol notes in the aroma and taste - this is phenolic and estery, boasting a ton of allspice, clove, and aged/bruised apple and pear, lower levels of banana. Consistent with the color, there is a mild roastiness dialing back the malty sweetness. No hop aroma or flavor discernible. Well-carbonated.

Served on tap into a small 6oz 'lady' glass (kind of a tiny tulip thing). Deep brown with ruby around the edges and a 1/2 finger of eggshell head that held pretty tight. Had some notes reminiscent of my experiences with tripels. Got some distinct notes of licorice, clove, and dark fruit on the nose. Ripe banana, clove on the palate. Extremely fresh tasting. Medium mouthfeel. Just as clean, and crisp as can be. Great beer experience.

Poured into a weizen glass 1/18/2015

A = Brown beer with somewhat fizzy and aggressive carbonation. Very little lacing (but at over 8% abv I wasn't expecting much). After adding the yeast from the bottle the beer is almost completely opaque. Head is about 1 finger tall and tan.

S = Toasted wheat and malts, brown bread, bananas, cloves, dark fruits, sweet kitchen spices.

T = Again, sweet toasted malts and a wheaty twang, bananas and dark bread, cloves, brown sugar, a hint of light roast coffee on the back. Dark fruits. Booze.

M = Somewhat viscous for a wheat beer, heavy in the stomach. Not quite as thick and heavy as a doppelbock but definitely a "meal in a glass"

O = I prefer Vitus to this, in all honesty, but this version of a weizenbock is definitely a better option for cold weather, with it's darker character and higher alcohol. Recommended!

Pours a big foamy head which rests nicely; colours is a dark dark brown. Smell of prune and alight alcohol makes this roving without being too sweet.

Enjoyed on tap from Jungle JIm's, this world class weizenbock pours a dark muddy brown with a fine beaded light tan head of foam and moderate lacing. Nose of plums, raisins, dark sweet malts, dark fruits, and solid alcohol. Flavors glide over the palate in smooth waves of brown sugars, dark fruits of plum and raisins with a light souring to the back blending with alcoholic warmth. Smooth and creamy texture makes this a world class weizenbock with moderate carbonation and layers of flavor that improve vastly with warmth. Light dry finish for such a sweet bock. Complex. Fortunate to have had it on tap!

A legend.

Cheers!
