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.

S: Smells of light alcohol, toasted malts and caramel notes, with accent of smokey clove, maybe even banana in strong doses. Perhaps similar to coca-cola caramel.
T: Initially hit with lightly sweet caramel, toasted wheat and light smoke. Followed by more smoke, banana peel with prominent raisin (with light fruity bitterness) and candied fruit characters at finish. Some mineral water / clove at times. Alcohol perfectly matched with the taste and is barely noticable.
F: Carbonation right away, light wheat, malt mouth feel, finishes with a sharp carbonation. Not thick, leaves mild tongue feel.

Probably the best of the few Doppelbock's I've had, not too sweet thankfully. A 4.25 doesn't give it justice, 4.5 in it's class, about 10th in my list of German Imports.

Cloudy, deep copper brown body. Two finger fluffy white head dissipates quickly into a thin lace.
Dark fruit and caramel dominate. A toasted wheat aroma mingles with banana peel and spices. with a touch of alcohol.
The taste is of deep toasted wheat, dates, a slight bitterness of weak coffee and baker's chocolate, a rounded and muted clove...all coming together like a slightly over baked Stollen.
Full bodied for the style, creamy but with good carbonation, enough to keep it from being heavy.

Minor points deducted for the chunky yeast.

This is an extremely good wheat beer. I liked it very much. However, it was brewed five years ago, so I wonder if it is passed its prime. I don't know, it was still delicious.

Look: brown coca-cola like hue with a half inch off-white head

Aroma: toasted malts, yeasty dough, sweet

Taste: The flavor is moderately yeasty dough/wheat and caramel with primarily dark fruits, banana, figs, raisins, and the alcohol is not noticeable.

Feel: light to medium body, easy drinking

To me this is perfect. I have tried all the Trappists. While some of those are very good, nothing that I have had beats Aventinus. Well maybe the Eisbock version, but I have not seen that one here for awhile. Incredible. Some of the Unibroue offerings like La Fin Du Monde and Trois Pistoles come close but don't quite reach the perfection of Aventinus.

L: Cola colored beer, pretty opaque, originally poured a massive soapy, cloud-like head, leaves tons of lace. Head retention is nice
S: Nice smell, toasted malt, cola, hints of dark fruits and alcohol. Sweet and aromatic/spicy
T: Hot damn. Complex as hell, up front I get lots of esters and phenol, slightly spicy. Get that banana/clove type thing common in these beers. Once this fades malts shine through stronger. Tons of dark fruit, think fig or dried apricot, even raisins. Caramelized sugars come through as well, molasses, caramel, toffee. Finishes with a touch of dryness, earthy hops. Nothing is out of balance or assertive here, present but not in your face.
F: Certainly a touch heavy, but not more than you'd think. Still really easy to drink, mouthfeel is remarkably smooth. Silky, carbonation is soft. This beer coats your mouth but you don't hate it for it, and it is in no way astringent, its quite freshing.
O: Big fan of this, perfectly brewed.
