Such an amazing beer. Perfectly balanced. Great flavor profile and it packs a really nice subtle punch too.

Appearance is a cloudy reddish brown colour. Pours a medium sized head that fades away to a thin head.

Aroma is sweet with yeast notes, cloves and bananas.

Taste is sweet with typical weiss beer yeast flavour. There is a treacle like flavour with a hint of spice. Some similarities to a Belgian tripel and Belgian strong dark ale but with a lighter, thinner mouth feel. The high ABV is not apparent and it drinks more like a 5.5 or 6 per cent beer.

Overall a pleasant and enjoyable beer. My first Weizen-dopplebock. This did not blow me away but it was a bit more flavousome than a standard hefeweiss. I would be interested to try more in the style.

80/100

Caramel smell. Intense taste. Brown and weiss mix taste. Almost sweet but not. Very nice and interesting beer to try. Love it.

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;
