I prefer Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock. In addition to tasting better, Celebrator also has that tassle-y thing attached to the neck of the bottle... CLASS

The aroma is characterized by spicy clove and a hint of alcohol along with a banana-like sweetness and a faint undertone of dark fruit or molasses. The body is cloudy and dark brown with a creamy, off-white head; creamy lacing clings to the glass. The predominant flavor is sweet and tangy, which is oddly reminiscent of baked beans. There is a good twang of clove-like spiciness with just a touch of banana-like sweetness (not as prominent as in the nose) and fairly noticeable alcohol. Over time, the flavor evens out, and becomes darkly fruity, earthy/woody, and dry. The considerable alcohol adds some dryness and warmth; it is somewhat creamy and medium-full in body with soft and frothy carbonation and a good carbonic bite.

Overall, very flavorful and expressive, strong but not overwhelming. Instead of being merely a weizen with more alcohol, the typically sweet bubblegum and banana flavors are subdued while the spiciness, dark fruitiness, and rich malt take center stage, making it reminiscent of a Belgian dark strong with more clove and frothier carbonation.

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.
