2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had some friends over and had a good-beer splitting night. Man is this an ugly beer. The suspended lees in the beer make it a cloudy grey brown, and I wasnít particularly rough with the bottle. The nose is all sugar. Raisins, and syrup, and sweet malt. Doesnít bode well. Taste is all sweetness and malt, but mostly sweet. Sugar, syrup and some roasted malt. As much as I appreciate a sweeter, richer beer (Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer comes to mind.) this beer just a little to cloying for me.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dirty dark brown with creamy yellow foam. Rich aroma of prunes, malt blocks, liquorice and dunkelweizen. The taste is malty with a lot of alcohol, associations to wine, juniper berries, prunes and wood. The palate and mouth-feel is rich and complex, some fizzy rock candy shows up early in the aftertaste. Very rich and complex beer - most likely the best I have ever tasted.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a large beige-gray creamy head, very persistent; hazy opaque dark brown, super murky-muddy colour, same as reg. aventinus but deeper. Smells, wow: raisins, blueberry, clove, plums, wheat, cake (torta paesana), milk chocolate. Just imagine a "Boero", the chocolate with the boozy cherry inside, itís really that nasty. Tastes dried/dark fruits, cake, chocolatey, vanilla, itís like having a dessert in your mouth. Medium to high sweetness, with really none bitter note. Soft carbonation, oily-creamy consistency, light alcoholic and warming touch. Whatís incredible itís how easy it actually goes down, especially for being 12%vol. For any Aventinus, or wheat beer fan, this would be the ultimate tasting experience. A quite outstanding brew!!

33cl bottle from Great Grog Bottle Shop. Utterly sensational! Pours a deep ruby colour. On the nose, heavy raisin, prune, hay and maturing banana notes. Incredibly rich, dark fruit flavours; raisin, prune, banana, plum, cherry. Alcohol feel is incredibly mellow considering the strength and gives it a warm and lastly finish. This is one of the most incredible Bavarian beers I have ever tried. I need to pick up another to age. Bravo!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a ruby brown colour with one finger of lasting tanned head. Aroma: Dried prunes, raisins, bit boozy. Taste matches aroma. Pleasantly strong booze taste. Pieces of something swimming in it. Mild carbonation. Just the right amount of bitterness on the palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Bottled 2011, around 3 years old or so. Little rust under the cap. Burnt, muddy copper & brown pour with a soft khaki head that doesnít last very long. Aroma of plums, vinous grapes, ash, mild sherry-like oxidation, sweet molasses, apples, sticky toffee-ish syrup. Smells very sweet with a little alcohol warmth to back it up. Flavor is big & complex. Very wine-like, actually. Red grape, vinous booze, sherry, rich raisin flavor with some notes of anise, roast, & ash hanging around the edges. Strong, potent alcohol from front to back, ending with a lingering touch of oxidation, sherry, & vinous, fermented grape flavors. A decent beer, Iím just not a huge fan of this style I guess.

Bottle. York Beer and Wine. Decent beer. Liked it. But the cheese I bought from here was as dry as some old bollocks. Which is totally useless as far as a beer review goes, but the cheese really was bollocks...
