3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330ml) Cellared for 3 years. Poured intense dark ruby with a small, frothy, lightly tanned head which was mostly diminishing. A rich, sticky, complex aroma with burnt sugar, toffee, toasted malts, dark chocolate, muscatels, prunes, caramelized dates and allspice. Flavor was of rich sticky toffee with caramelized dates, rum & raisin chocolate, fruit cake, figs, sultana’s, brown sugar, light woody notes, a touch of port and a warming finish. Well hidden alcohol, very smooth with virtually no bitterness. Full bodied with very soft carbonation, a syrupy texture and a long lasting finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of wheat and alcohol, yeast and lacquer. Pours a muddy, hazy brown with an off-white, short head that rapidly dissipates. Big flavors of wheat and sourdough with sweet caramel notes and not unpleasant alcohol. Not subtle but pretty balanced. Fizzy mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Not my favorite style but its pretty impressive.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
I bought this bottle at Drink of the World, Lucerne. I drank it in Bonfol. It is the same version than the Aventinus with a stronger degrees of alcohol and in my opinion even better. The taste is perfect, plum, apricot, malt, sugar, caramel, hop, well balanced and like a syrup. The body is brown and red, low-middle carbonation, white and brown foam. I love it and the best it is to drink this beer with a nice meat.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Uma cerveja intensa: marrom, turva, com boa formação de espuma. Aroma complexo de trigo, leveduras, figo, chocolate e um toque de cravo. Na boca, é doce, frutada, encorpada, com o álcool realçando o sabor. Final levemente amargo, que persiste, e picante. Uma beleza!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smell: alcohol, fusel, metallic, dark fruits, prunejuice ( i get more prunes than bananas) celery seeds, spice, sulphur, oceanic, meaty, fatty, some zesty fruits like lemon/lime, roasted nuts, overly ripe fruits (plums, apples), caramel.
Taste: alcohol, fusel, malt, malty bitterness, sweet, bitterness stays on tongue, alcoholburn.
I think there are too many fusel oils in this beer, giving it a alcoholic "roughness". It’s not a refined beer. Some more hops, both bittering and aroma, would have made it more interesting imo.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromat bardzo intensywny, pszeniczny, lekkie banany, goździki, melanoidyny, tostowy, ciemne owoce, trochę perfumy, szlachetny alkohol. W smaku słodziutkie, goździkowo-bananowe, nuty tostowe, lekko karmel, lekki pieprz, likier. Piana niska, szybko się degeneruje, mały lacing. Bardzo przyjemny, rozgrzewający alkohol, świetny balans między poszczególnymi smakami, gęste. Niesamowite!
