3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A complex and challenging beer. Dark, reddish-brown hue with almost zero head and a strong torrent of chocolate-cherry liqueur candy, plum, raisins and port in the fragrance, some diesel as well. Those sweet flavours come out early on in tasting, leaving a distinctively wheaty aftertaste that is short-lived. Strong hint of apple or pear cider and (obviously) icewine. Oily palate with little carbonation. Slightly noxious; or maybe I just canít handle my liquor. Hard to believe this is made from typical beer ingredients! A unique experience, not sure how often I could repeat it.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has lots of sediment floating (and not moving due to viscosity) and pours murky dark brown with head that goes very quickly. Strong doughy aroma. Sweet roasty malt date chocolate taste not bitter but warms you. It expands as you drink it. Very filling...

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Monkís....Pours out a nice dark brown color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma is very nice with notes of fruit and spices. The taste is suprisingly smooth for such a heavy beer. The flavors range from sweet fruit to dry plum with a few notes of chocolate and roasty malts. A very dangerous beer to drink

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma is fruity, apples, plum, some chocolate undertone. Taste is sweet and malty, strong alcoholic kick, really intense and flavorful. Mouthfeel is very sweet and syrupy, almost like melted chocolate, but you donít really taste much chocolate in the taste. A great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 fl. oz. bottle, bought in Denmark. Bottle number 054113. Pours murky brown with sediment / floaties, enormous head that soon subsides. Delightful intense aroma of yeast, over-ripe bananas, brown sugar, caramel, treacle, oak, alcohol and spices. Flavour is very powerful, malty and sweet with plenty of brown sugar, oak and spices, and a tremendous alcoholic punch. I guess Iíd prefer the ordinary Aventinus on a regular basis, but the Weizen-Eisbock is definitely a treat for the dark winter nights, or whenever you want to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Much respect goes out to shag who hooked me up with a taste of this fine brew. This one was very brown with maybe some red clay mixed into it. I definetely picked up on the alcohol and it seemed to blend nicely with the choice dark fruits found in this beer. Damn good beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish-brown pour with a light off-white head. Large brown yeast sediment (didnít think to decant it). Aroma was very intriguing with an assortment of dark fruits (plums, prunes, raisins), light hopping, and a bit of malty sweetness... all amplified by the alcohol presence. Flavor picked up the above flavors as well as some caramel. Mouthfeel was heavy and intense as expected, but the brew was incredibly smooth from sip to finish.
