A- Medium brown with a slight ruby tint and a huge off white head. Head falls quickly and leaves no lace on the glass.

S- Caramel, spice, clove, banana, cherries, malt and yeast.

T- Malty and sweet, nice notes of fruit and spice. Very complex in taste and not overbearing in any one flavor. Exceptionally balanced.

M- Smooth medium bodied and well carbonated. Finish is semi sweet and crisp with a final note of candied fruit.

D- Oh, so drinkable for 8.2% ABV. You know it's strong but you would never guess just how strong it really is.

This was the first beer that blew me away as to just how complex and balanced beer can be. I come back to this over and over again as a touchstone for as close to perfect as it gets.

4.08/5  rDev -6%

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass. A thin layer of yeast sediment remained in the bottle.

A—deep, dark, rich brown; about a 1 inch thick foamy head that disappeared quickly, light lacing on the glass

S—spicy with a strong plum scent; a little banana and clove aroma as well. I do not like plums so I am not enjoying the smell as much

T—rich mild chocolate taste with nice combo of raison, caramel, and clove flavors; a little floral as well

M—strong carbonation; somewhat slimy to me, but finishes really nice

D—enjoyed trying it due to the positive BA reviews. I can clearly see why it is rated so high. I liked the taste very much but the smell was a little strong and foul for me.

This is my first wheat doppelbock so I do not have a comparison. The presentation, taste and mouthfeel are wonderful. I just don't care for the smell as much.

Heard so many good things about this one I just had to try it for myself.

Pours a murky dark brown in color with a nice frothy light tan head. Nose is invariably sweet smelling, quite malty. Taste is very smiliar, heavy on the malt, some light sherry notes, a bit woody and estery. Very nicely balanced somehow though, quite a masterpiece.

I'll be sure to return to this one again.

Slàinte!

Clear and somewhat chocolate-shaded brown, my first crack at an Aventinus poured with a nice, white head and a surprisingly wheaty aroma. That same wheat melds with dark, rich bock flavors and some fruit sweetness in a beautiful union with the twinge of alcohol around the edges. These flavors dance wonderfully across the palate.

This is very, very, even exceptionally good, and pretty unique--at least in my limited experience. It's also astoundingly drinkable for something so dark and alcoholic. Wow.

Spoils of the 10/11/03 Knoxville Raid.

A- pours a diarrhea brown with some red highlights when held to direct light,the head is tan and small dissipating quickly(probably the high ABV affect)

S-very strong nose,but mostly fruit(rasins and prunes),spice and alcohol

T-toasty w)wild black berry jam notes,with some cinnamon and clove,mostly malts in charge here with hops and fruity wheat flavors being a close runner up,nice balance,besides the alcohol which is not well hidden

M-medium to full body,and medium carbonation with some spicy sensation on the tongue makes for a complex mouthfeel that gets a little smoother as it warms and the carbonation softens

D-this packs a punch from the lips,to the tongue,to the belly,and straight to the hat rack...an enjoyable treat but not something I would drink more than one of at a time

4.05/5  rDev -6.7%

Pours a brackish brown with a minimalist carbonation of a head. Keeps bubbling up from the bottom of the glass and making little eddies of foam around the edge of the glass.

Smells strongly of dark fruit and a little bit of alcohol.

The taste is pure fruity goodness up front. Lots of sweet sugars rush right in. A little bit grainy and chewy in the middle with a minimal hop ending. Really a sweet beer.

Mouthfeel is very slick and a little drying at the end.

Drink till you can't.

Very dark copper color. Nice frothy off white head retains well for the duration of the beer.

Clove and mint smells from the German yeast. A little bit of dark fruit shows through.

Plumbs, dates and other nice dark fruits. Banana and clove. A complex well done beer. A nice complexity of spices and rich fruit flavors.

Chewy well carbonated beer. The alcohol is very well hidden.

This beer reminds me of a hefenweizen that tastes of more intensely of dark fruits than of bananas. Really interesting brew.

4.33/5  rDev -0.2%

Pours brown with a reddish hue. Medium and slightly off-white head. Lots of active carbonation and good head retention.

Strong banana/clove aroma. Sweet smelling with plenty of wheat and some bready aroma as well. Taste is banana and bread up front with a clove spiciness. Some caramel sweetness with good biting carbonation. Deep and complex, yet clean and refreshing flavor.

Body is light with a smooth, clean feel making it an incredibly drinkable beer.
