500 ml bottle poured into an Aventinus glass at Mill Valley Beerworks

A - pours with about 1.5 finger head, probably off white. It's a little dark in here. Beer is a dark brown, but when held up to te light has a really pleasant garnet/dark copper look. Clear but hazy. A round and inviting looking beer with many tiny bubbles rising from the bottom. Head retention is decent and the bubbles slowly work their way down the inside of the glass into the beer. If head ever disappears it only takes another swig to bring it back. Nice looking beer.

S - pleasant biscuity yeast aroma with hints of clove and dried fruit. Some bubblegum as it warms. Aroma is not a wow, but it is good.

T - starts and evolves like the aroma, but more intense. Cloves and dried fruit into bubble gum. Very enjoyable. I'm preferring the flavor after it warms up a little. Even warmer and some apple cider makes an appearance.

M - nice and creamy at first. Little watery as you swallow, but overall this is a nice pillowy beer.

O - a great beer that must be tried at least once. I have had this a few times before and this is the 2nd best I've had it. Best was on tap at Wurstkuche in LA in the proper glass. Worst was from the bottle into the wrong glass at home. The glass makes a big difference apparently. Try this beer. At *least* once...

Huge off white head, murky brown color with yellow highlights at the edges. Big aroma of bread, chocolate, and caramel as well as fruity notes of light banana, and of course some spicy clove mixed in for good measure.

Alcohol is noticable and warming at first sip. As in the aroma, stong flavors wheat and caramel dominate, with a light chocolate zip to it. Banana flavors are there from the yeast but a more complex fruitiness is apparent much like plums and a hint of apricot. A persistant spicy clove flavor really helps balance out any harshness from the alcohol but without taking center stage. Definitely a full bodied beer.

Overall one of the best beers I have tried in a long time. Its hard to find a flaw in this one. Complex yet very approachable...and delicious.

A - pours a nice coppery brown with a cloudy, thick he's that leaves tons of lacing.

S - Spicy phenols are the most noticeable scent followed by bananas and a chocolatey caramel sweetness.

T - Tastes of clove, coriander, nutmeg, and bananas followed by chocolate and vanilla. Very complex: there are hints of roasted nuts and a balanced wheaty flavor. The hops add a crisp zing in the finish.

M - Feels smooth but rich in the mouth. Definitely not too thick and not too thin. The carbonation is very nice.

O - A classic! A must try for beer lovers everywhere. Definitely in my top five favorite German beers.
