Poured from a 1 pint .9 fl oz bottle into glass. For dating, label is stamped '17.177 310517'.
Amber brown colored body, slightly cloudy. Light tan head, two fingers settles slowly to thick creamy cap. Lacing slides back into beer.
Aroma of sugared caramel, dates, figs, banana, and cloves. Some wafting of alcohol.
Taste is sweet caramel malt, slight wheat twang, banana, cloves. Sweet caramelized sugar and dark fruits. Biscuit and a little dark chocolate.
Medium, creamy mouth feel. Medium tongue numbing.
Kind of like candied dates soaked in banana and spiced liqueur, but as a liquid.

This tasted more like a Belgian dark ale to me. It had dark fruit flavors.

Pours a murky brown coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smell is quite boozy, dominated by caramel malt and estery banana, with just a hint of dark fruits, clove and yeast. Taste is malt-forward, with strong estery fruit notes, spice and just a hint of wheaty yeast. Caramel, bready malt, with notes of banana and dark fruits: fig, plum, and cloves/pepper. Quite a bit of boozyness present as well, but not too bad. Nice, full mouthfeel. Doesn't hold a candle to Celebrator, but still a really nice wheat Doppelbock.

I just had a chance to sample a 4 1/2-year old "Vintage Edition" bottle of this beer and I have to say that drinking it next to a fresh bottle was a fascinating experience. First off, the pour is clearer, with a much smaller head and very poor retention. Lots of floaters during final pour as well. Smell is a lot richer and maltier. Somewhat sweeter with a much more pronounced dark fruit note that almost lends this a sherry-like quality. Still a little spice coming through, but the estery yeast notes have almost completely disappeared. A little chocolate coming through as well. Taste is a lot deeper and more complex, following a similar pattern to the nose. Maltier, slightly sweeter, with much richer dark fruit notes and added notes of toffee and chocolate, while the estery yeast/banana and wheat notes are very muted, but not quite as much as in the nose. Still a good deal of spiciness coming through as well. Also feels somewhat more boozy. This definitely becomes a lot more of a sipper with age, gaining an impressive amount of richness and complexity, but really losing a lot of drinkability as well.

Pours a dark amber brown color with a big foamy head. Good head retention that leaves a creamy film as it recedes and lots of lacing.
Complex and diverse array of aromas include dark fruit; prune, plum and raisin. There is also banana, as well as light clove and bubblegum.
This brew is a real treat in the mouthfeel and flavor! Soft and smooth, a product of the wheat. Medium bodied and gently carbonated. Sweet flavors from the banana, caramelized malt and marmalade jam like malt texture. The yeast produces fruity eaters in the form of dark fruit; raisin, plum, prune, and grape. Light clove provides the balance. Some dryness in the finish, as well as light tartness. Towards the end, a nice bready and toasty quality comes through in the aroma and flavor, as well as a hint of chocolate.
Wonderful brew and just about the best example of the style!

Really good beer. Tried both the fresh and vintage 2009. When poured it had a look
/color almost like coke. Slightly clear, purple haze. Upon smelling i caught wiffs of fig, raisin, cinnamon and grape. The vintage smelled of caramelized candy. Taste was exquisite. I tasted immediate carbonation. Sweet notes of fruit and dried raisin. Slightly spicey. Alcohol added to that Spicey flavor. Vintage had a lot less spice, more mellow flavor. Enjoyed the fresh taste better. Vintage smelled better.
