3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, this is like a punch in the face. Itís difficult to drink, overwhelmed with the strong alcohol concentration. Smokey sweet flavour, almost apple sweet taste. Strong sour syrupy aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber/brown with tons of floaties, and a minimal tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, barley wine-like maltiness, some oakiness, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bread, spiciness and a strong warming finish from the alcohol. I actually enjoyed this more as it warmed up, even though it became more sweet and with a stronger alcohol finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark brown, cloudy brew with a small tan head. Pleasantly sweet, almost heavy, caramel flavor. Lightly hopped. Much stronger taste than I anticipated from a Weizen, but then it was much darker than a typical wheat. The aftertaste was also sweet. I felt the need to clear my throat from the residual sweetness. The carbonation was low. There were no sip lines. Dark brown sediment was left in the bottom of the glass. I was left with a nice, alcohol induced warmth.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours slightly reddish brown, moderately hazy, with some sediment and virtually no head. Aroma has a lot of bananas foster (cooked sweetened banana), with some wheat malt, dark fruits, burnt caramel, vanilla, and port-like hint of alcohol. Flavor is like moderately sweet banana bread up front, becoming spicier and warmed by the alcohol towards the middle, finishing in a long lingering sweet and spicy finish. As might be expected this is like a strengthened version of the normal Schneider Aventinus, and so is also excellent but in a different way. Itís hard to really choose one version over the other, though I think I prefer this one by just a slight bit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Tawny brown and slightly hazy with no head. Hardcore toffee and concentrated dried fruit aromas (prunes and quince) with a burnt caramel chord presiding over all. The concentrated fruits show again in the flavours. Pumpernikel, caraway, plum pudding, burnt toffee and molasses. Very warming and satisfying, yet this just doesnít wow me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. bottle # 2005/11885
hazy amber with a voluminous tan head.
Head dissipates rather quickly and leaves spotty lacing.
Aroma is cooked banana, dark brown sugar, vanilla, wisps of wheat, and a touch of alcohol.
flavor is reminiscent of fresh warm banana bread, with some brown sugar and clovey spice, a little wheat and warming alcohol.
Tasty, but the sweetness and high abv would make it hard to drink more than one in a sitting.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 067943. Clear brown color except for all the chunks of floating sediment hanging around this elixir. Tan head that fizzled to nothing in a couple of minutes. Sweet sugary smell with vanilla, brown sugar, cherries, dates and wheat. Very complex aroma. First sip, WOW. Excellent flavor. The wheat, dark fruit, brown sugar and spices make a great combination of flavors. At the end of the bottle some alcohol became noticeable as a warmth crept into the drinking experience, sort of as a reminder of the ABV.
