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

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 This is a strong beer lovers delight. With a big alcohol kick and thick palate! Super sweet aroma with licorice, raisins and vinegar. The appearance is dark brown with lots of particulates and it has a small head but the head last as long as any I have seen. Despite the small head the beer is highly carbonated making it quite creamy. The flavor is robust with a candy like sweetness. There are hints of vinegar and licorice as well as some fruits. Syrup like aftertaste. Overall its quality but just to strong for me. I could do with about half the alcohol.
