2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle looks really good, beer in the glass also. Darker than exspected, very zippy. Starts strong, quite yeasty and dry. Fruity notes of apricot, a bit earthy. Finish strong and a bit alcoholic. All in all too yeasty and dry. Not my favourite.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewery in Aloysius glass. Murky tea brown liquid with large, off-white head that has decent retention. Aroma features hops and yeast, with malt in the background. The taste is more like a dunkelweisse, with clear wheat, clove and banana notes, and very little hop presence. Smooth feel with medium body and carbonation, marred by a bit of harshness.
O: mediocre, for Bavaria.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quizás los hispanos no estemos hechos para diferenciar una Dunkel de una Bock, en cuanto a sabor (el tema de la apariencia es más que claro) Y quizás el que subscribe sea más Dunkel que Bock (aunque Aventinus sea Aventinus) Es una gran cerveza, es indudable, pero estando la Alte Liebe, pues me quedo con ella, quizás porque esta bock ya no trata tan bien al que la consume...se sufre cansancio con ella.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml.bottle. Clear brown colour, qith an off-white head that fades quickly leaving a lace. Smell is sweet, tropical fruits, mango or papaya, berries, chocolate, though no one is very distinctive and it has some medicinal notes. Medium body, sweet but dead palate. Taste is sweet, caramel, berries and tropical fruits, again with that medicinal notes that makes it a not so pleasant drink.
