Opaque brown with a large tan head. Aroma very vinous, cherry, plum, prune, toffee, caramel, coffee liquor. Taste heavy and sweet, vanilla, cherry, dark fruit, chocolate, plum brandy, caramelized banana (or maybe banana bread with maple). Quite remarkable. Palate rich and warming, sweet almost (but only almost) to the point of cloying, with banana notes.

33cl bottle into tulip. Lille.
Appearance: very dark brown, completely opaque. Small off white head when poured discipates rather quickly. Nice cloudy effect from the abundant lees.
Aroma: banana is most present. Dark Chocolate, yeast, dark fruit, alcohol.
Taste: slight sweetness with a light bitterness. Warming alcohol in he back of he throat.
Palate: full coating on my mouth, oily texture, good carbonation, good log finish.
Overall: I actually didn’t realize this was the eisbock until I went to open the beer. I just pulled it jockey from the store shelf when I purchased. This was a nice surprise! I haven’t had the normal aventinus recently to compare, but this was very good. Not super complex, banana and dark chocolate dominates the flavor profile, but the beer does an impressive job of hiding the 12% alcohol. I’ll be buying another of these to cellar.

Amazing beer. Poured into a pewter stein. Only hints of banana in the aroma (lots of alcohol though). Taste is a deep over-ripe banana, sweet and lots of booze. For me, this is a fantastic sipping beer. I've got some of these cellaring, really interested to see how they age.

Bottle at home from St Albans beer fest. Aroma is sweet caramel and raisin and a bit of bannofee pie. Flavour is caramel toffee apple and raisin. Murky brown pour with a thin cream head. Not a looker but very tasty. Spritz carb. Wheat and banana bread.

Great strong beer, mix well with meat and roast in general, you can feel the alcohol without burning your nose.
Its like a very reinforced Aventinus.
For cap colllectors: a violet and grey cap, similar to the label, with the name written.

Flaska från beernavigator. En två år gammal flaska. Mahognyfärgad, mycket skum till en början, men det försvinner ganska fort. Tydlig veteölsdoft med sötma, mogen banan och nejlikor men allt med större intensitet och sötma. Krafitg, fyllig, koncentrarad och rustik. Söt men inte sliskig som kulmbachers eisbock, viss vetesyrlighet, torkad frukt, jäst, alkohol, praliner, marsipan och en tydlig men väl integrerad beska. Ett stort öl.
