A bit rougher than the normal Aventinus. It has the banana aroma and dense malty taste, and more of the intense sweet raisin flavor. The alcohol is still pretty well buried under all the heavy flavors and smells even though it’s like two beers crammed in one bottle. Overall I’d take the regular Aventinus but I certainly would not turn one of these down.

Pours the same as Aventinus, tiny white head. Aroma is sweet, boozy, dark fruits. Well carbonated, sticky mouthfeel, long lasting after-taste. Flavor is banana, ripe dark fruit, malt, alcohol burn at the end. One and done on this bad boy. A cold-weather beer for sure.

Deep smell of banana, butterscotch, clove, raisins, plums and trappist inputs with added rum feel to it. A bit boozy. Taste is more intense on the dark fruits, raisin, butterscotch, dates and rum. Very intense and quite well masked, wouldn’t want another one though.

Drunk a few times. Had one last night while playing darksouls. gonna try a bunch of heavy duty beers while playing it cuz it seems like the perfect combo. takes the edge of my ragequits at least. so this pours a cloudy muddy orange with medium head tan head. aroma is amazing. banoffee pie, dried fruits, some orange. taste is similar. malty sweetness balanced with a big warming hit of booze and a slightly sour aftertaste. big body holds the alcohol well. its quite fizzy and feels great to drink. when i first had it i thought it was too strong, but now its one of my absolute favs. smooth and completely delicious

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown, beige head. Aroma and taste are full of fruits like banana, figs, raisins and plums, roasted but sweet malts, vanilla, clove, wine tones and a bourbon-boozy burn: quite complex, yet relatively easy drinkable. Lingering sweet aftertaste. Full body, (too) lively carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Great beer.

Smells great, well balanced aroma of dark fruit (plum, prune) and candi sugar. Hazy, dirty b rown with long lasting brown head. Tastes great, not overly complex but well balanced. Upfront get some candi sugar, finishes with some dark fruit and alcohol heat. Comes off a bit hot, but still integrates well with the sweetness of the drink. Not too complex, but I can imagine with some aging this would be great. Above average carbonation and medium bodied. Great beer.
