Pours dark copper with an ooff-white head that goes away fairly quickly. Aromas is very rich and sweet with some creaminess - fruit is detected as well. The aroma is very big. Mouthfeel is medium / full and very creamy carbonation. Taste is creamy roasted malt with butterscotch and toffee. Very rich and dessert-like. Finish has lots of toffee and a bit of sourness. An amazing beer.

Brew102 (13) - USA - APR 29, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 A German Dopplebock that drinks like a yeasty Belgian. Is there a better beer? No adjectives, just know if you like either style, this beer is near-perfect. Well, only thing wrong may be a slightly off color. OK, I’m reaching. The perfect beer.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006

beerbiere (101) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Brown color. Huge ever-growing sustaining head and intense carbonation. Aroma of banana and cloves. Flavor evolves mainly around banana and cloves with some caramel and perhaps milk-chocolate. Quite sweet with a sour finish. Very round, luxurious mouthfeel. Despite being quite sweet and nevertheless its strong alcohol content, VERY drinkable, dangerous actually. My only complaint is it felt a little dull in the end since the carbonation was down. Yet, one of my all-time favorites.

Hangover (1104) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2006
Bottle. Pours a somewhat murky dark brown with a nice, lasting beige head. Aroma is complex... when first opened and poured cold, it was mainly fruity/banana with some clove, but as it warmed it took on more of a chocolate/plum character. Nice creamy and carbonated mouthfeel. Initially very malty, but fades into a dried fruit, cherry/date, yeasty middle finally finishing with a bit of alcohol and stickyness. Yummy.

damienv10 (108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2006
Brewery aged 2001 bottle. Birch beer in color with tan head that dissipates completely. Aroma is of stewed fruit, apricot, and dark malt. Fairly soft and round on the palate with enough carbonation to make it crisp. Taste is of dark malt, slightly fruity, traces of coffee and clove. Five years has mellowed this usually very potent beer. I prefer a fresh Aventinus, but this is a nice change.
