Beer pours murky brown with a tan head that is rocky and likes to stick to the glass.

Aroma of dark baked bread, some banana, a touch of alcohol.

Beer is rich and full on the palate, I get notes of bread, banana, alcohol, and darker grains.

This is a great beer, it is warming a bread like, great for a cold day.

1 pint bottle, poured into a bell glass at approximately 45 degrees F.

A: Pours the color of weak coffee or strong tea, pooling into the glass as a lovely shade of burnished copper, cloudy and murky with a red-copper sheen where light shines through along the sides of the glass. The head is a pale, faint tan, and lingers a while as a cap which leaves some sheet lacing that slowly slips back down to the surface.

S: Toffee-sprinkled wheat bread dipped in caramel, slathered in some banana and grape preserves.

T: A malt explosion, all toffee-caramel bread. Hints of banana and cloves swim through the sweetness, alongside some faint grape-raisin-black cherry echoes. There's a touch of herbaceous bitterness to the finish, and oddly, I get more alcohol heat from the Aventinus than the Aventinus Eisbock.

M: A tad on the thin side, towards watery, but still somewhat sticky, with lively carbonation.

O: A phenomenal doppelbock, managing to keep the focus on sweetness, malt, and fruit flavors, without much of a noticeable hop presence. In a straight comparison, I'd choose the eisbock version every time, but that is an entirely different category of beer.

Big white, slightly beige head, with a nut brown, earthy color. Leaves a decent lacing.

Banana, warm malts, honey, plums, molasse and ripe pear.

Excellent, refreshing beginning, supported by banana, malts and a fitting, high carbonation. Decent complexity, malt gives this a medium-body, with a spicy, warm, slightly alcoholic addition and a long honeyed finish with hints of metallic carbonation. Slick, oily and pleasantly smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste is sweet with toffee and bready malts, convert to a warming feeling in the stomach. Yeast does a lot of work here, without creating the usual "Weizen" impression. This is a warming and refreshing beer at the same time, with a great fruity body, completed by spices and a pleasant sweet finish.
