Whenever I happen upon a beer that is as highly rated as this one, I feel I must give it a try, even if I think I won't like it. Well, this beer packs a punch on many levels. It poured with a dark chocolate color with tiny tan bubbles. Smell was that of a rich port, but with some citrus notes. The taste is truly overwhelming- massive amount of malt with a slight tang of cloves and figs or some other dried fruit was predominant. Filled up my mouth and my tastebuds. You cannot drink another beer after this one, and frankly, I'm not sure you can have two of these in the same sitting.

Saved this one for a while.. Its one of my favourite beers around ( given my handle). Pours a almost cola colour with a nice firm head when poured properly. The nose is full of life with , caramel, bananas, cloves and even a almost light tobacco. The taste is the nose times three.. All of the sences are hit with the fruity, spicy, and almost cola like sensations. The carbonation just lifts these onto the palate and makes the tongue dance with joy.. The mouthfeel is smooth and the carbonation keeps this from being to heavy.. This would be a great beer to through back if not for the fact that 3 or more will leave you hurting due to its ABV, which is not even noticable. An all time favourite. For a great treat drink this with Bananas foster for dessert!!! now if i could keep my wife from drinking half of my Tinus id be a happy boy.

Pours a light chestnut color with a big foamy tan head and lots of carbonation. Champagne would be proud to have some of these lines of finely beaded bubbles.
Big sweet and toasty malt smells. Tropical fruit, mainly banana, and an almost bubblegum hint. A bit of brown sugar and hints of clove and dark rum.
Mmmm good! Sweet toasted bready malt flavor. Lots of rum soaked, sugared fruit, spices and a little nuttiness as well. Chocolate, clove and cola in the finish. Outstanding!
Medium to full bodied with a rich, full, creamy mouthfeel that was lightened nicely by the carbonation.
The alcohol made its presence known as the beer warmed, but in a complementary way. This along with the carbonation induced light mouthfeel leads to great drinkability. But beware, it'll sneak up on you.

Poured into a weizen glass.

Beautifully pours a cloudy dark-brown color which releases a fat pale beige head then resides back down to a small cap. Zero lacing upon the glass. Some carbonation can be found towards the bottom end of the glass. No lacing at all. Smell is very fruity in esters - all banana. There's some bready and wheat characteristics and clove oriented in spice alongside the banana quality.

Taste is initially full of a nice wheat breadiness. The banana flavor is incredibly potent here which eases into the nice hints of clove spiciness - all typical of a weizen. There's some caramel amongst all the breadiness and fruit also. Makes for a nice flavor combination. Towards the end is a nice alcoholic kick and short bitterness.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with moderate carbonation. There's a substantial feel of the mini bubbles on the palate. Drinkability is dangerously drinkable. Absolutely delicious and smooth with no immediate taste of the 8.2% ABV. Can't have too many of these on a night. But nonetheless, one of the best German brews I've had.

500ml bottle into Augustiner weizen glass, no BB

Coloration is cola brown, and hazy (the color of a cola-weizen actually). Head is much tamer than your average weizen and slightly off-white, within minutes the head is more or less gone reducing to a ring. Smell is weizen yeast, spices, ripe fruit (or even dried fruit, with a dark malt in the background and a good amount of sweetness. As it warms a bit of alcohol becomes the initial smell. Taste is fairly boozy and yeasty with a good amount of sweetness, spices, some dark dried fruits emerge (thing raisins or prunes). Mouthfeel is medium-light, heavier than a weizen and medium carb, some mouth tingling and an ever so slight burn from the alcohol. Also a bit dry.

I'm a big fan of hefeweizens but not too crazy about this one, the alcohol is very apparent in the beer and takes away from the delicious fruitiness of the complex yeast. Drinkability is lower than weissbier due to the high alcohol. On the plus the darker beer brings out some interesting smells and tastes of dark dried fruit that you don't get in the lighter hefeweizen. Despite the aforementioned negatives, I do like the beer, just not something I would get very often, just too boozy. A weizen for the colder months.

Pours with a look that reminds me of apple cider-- you know that stuff served during late October... Creates a small head layer that eventually dissipates and forms a ring in the glass.

The nose produces wafts of wheat and bucolic yeast commingled with hits of alcohol.

The flavor produces indeed almost a yeast like apple cider-- not sweet but hops, yeast, wheat, green apples, with a zest of lemon rind.

A nice clean and long finish as if the flavors from the start play their flavor instruments but don't know the show is over.

Very cordial mouthfeel with a coating that's like a blanket enveloping my palate.

The drinkability is above average-- I could put down a quart of this stuff! Glorious!

I wonder what it's like on tap!

The pour was on the dark side and producing a nice golden head. I first picked up hints of cloves, cardamom, orange and some cinnamon

I wasnt sure what to expect based on the aroma. The taste was malty and bit heavy. It was a bit on the thin side and did not leave any distinctive aftertaste.

This may just not be the type of beer that really suits me.

Nothing to complain about or negative comments, just something that was a good drink but also something I would not consider having more than 1 glass.

Came across a single bottle misplaced on an LCBO shelf. I've been looking forward to trying this beer but never could find it. Heard alot of good word about it;

Pours a dark amber, lots of carbonation and a thriving head. Deep cloudy appearance assuming part of the wheat style.

Smell yields a pine flavor and a tinge of citrus. Slight scent of yeast adding a touch of flowers.

Very big taste upfront, relative to scent. Definately see where the strong beer classification come from. The alcohol tase is noticeable, as is the wheat-dobblebock upfront. This is a brave beer, it knows exactly what it does well and sticks to it.
Fairly heavy mouthfeel, slightly chewy, again, wheat..

Overall i think the Aventinus doesn't quite live up to what i expected, having said that, it is great for it's style: the Doppelbock. At 8.5% the 500 ml bottle serves well on its own. Very cool bottle and labeling, with the regal colours and logo.

Reviewed at RFD
Pours an orange tinged ruby color with huge amounts of head. Becomes cloudier with each pour, obviously unfiltered; with great tracing as well. Aromas are huge with lots of clove, caramel, banana, and wheat, and a slight bit of cocoa. On the palate, the chocolate becomes more evident along with dark fruits, raisins, a little vanilla, some cinnamon in the finish, ginger, along with an astringency. Carbonation was medium high producing quite a sting with a medium light, creamy body. Drinkability was extremely good, the alcohol was nowhere to be seen. One of the best German beers I've had.

Pours a giant 4 finger off white head. Body is a deep brown color with lots of carbonation rising. Head retention and lacing are good

Smell is big on cloves and phenols. Similar to a Hefe but with a touch of alcohol in the mix.

Taste is very similar to a dunkelweizen but with a higher abv. For 8% the alcohol isnt too strong but does leave a warming feeling down your throat. Pretty sweet with lots of banana and some spice.

Mouth feel is slightly denser than a typical wheat beer. Carbonation is lively but not too high. Wish the head was a bit more dense but oh well.

Drink ability was good. Went through the bomber rather easily. For such a high abv beer it will definitely sneak up on you. Wish more breweries would brew this style of beer
