3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, brewed 04/2006, batch #31.
Almost opaque black, huge tan head. Yeasty, woody aroma, notes of banana. Very carbonated, alcoholic, fruity, estery flavors. Smoked, riped banana flavors. Reasonably balanced.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 0,5l. Dark brown. An aggressive head that disappeared rather quickly. Dominated by far too high carbonation that owershadows the flavour. Lot of sediments.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown, sticky white head. Banana, toasted malts, mild spices and alcohol. The strong carbonation disturbs in the flavour, could pick up light chocolate, banana and grass. Short spritzy finish with notes of metal, banana and almond.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown beer. Lots of foam and bubbles, but when you get through to the beer, it does not have much taste or aroma. Some sweet & sour aroma, but rather thin and not very exciting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown and seemingly clear. Throws an enormous head as there is way too much carbonation in the bottle. The bottle is full of foam after having poured most of it into the glass. The head keeps growing, so this may take a while. Soapy aroma. Some drying hops in the nose. Licorice and chocolate malts. Some complexity from the yeast. Feels rather thin, probably caused by the beer fermenting very low. This is also very likely the cause of the high carbonation level. Will have to try another batch later.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head tries to escape out of the bottle the moment I open it. In the glass it’s huge, coarse-laced, and shrinking fast. Body is opaque black, and at the edges a lighter shade of black, incredibly. Large yeast particles. Aroma is sweetish coffee and licorice. Harmonic, but not very strong. Taste is sweet coffee and licorice, with a dry, burnt aftertaste. Powerful, but still relatively light and easy to drink. Some alcohol heat is noticeable. Some acidity, a touch of chocolate, and some bitterness which is well hidden in all the rest. Quite good, definitely a decent effort. (0.5l bottle.)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a beige head that shrank quickly to a minimum. Fruity aroma with smoked notes. Chocolate and dark fruit flavours ending dry. Quite fizzy, light to medium body despite its strength. A nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An unclear brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also with lighter notes of wheat and banana - and so is the flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle, Vinmonopolet. Batch No. 31. On the first pour my weissbier glass fills completely with brown foam, which very slowly subsides to form a large and creamy head, on top of an opaque dark brown beer. First a very nice aroma of dark fruits, bakery / rye bread, bananas and cloves, then some less pleasant sidenotes of pepper and artificial candy set in. Flavour is sweet and alcoholic, notes of roasted malts and slightly burnt toast. Fairly bitter finish. This weizenbock is no Aventinus, but still a nice try.
