Dark, cararmelly brown color. A decent amount of head. Good body. Some yeastiness. Very nice mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Surprised by the 8% abv.

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.

Fin (9224) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottle 14-04-06 purchased from Sainsburys, Kidlington, they are selling this at 96p a bottle in my local Sainsburys instead of £1.91. Dark Ruby colour, sweet wheaty taste with some hops, spicy aroma, very good beer, suprised that it is 8% as it does not taste this strong. Might go and stock up on some more!

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 Phenomenal beer. Pours clear mahogany with a small head. Aroma of spices and cloves with some banana. Taste of malts with spice and some darker fruits a little of the hefe banana. Smooth mouthfeel with a sweet finish. The alcohol is totally masked. Will definitely get this one again.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 A delicious and wondefully dark and complex beer. While darkish in color the body remains light but with certain depth that requires slow sipping. A wonderful taste and feel in the mouth, with a suprising alchol content. Very nice and delicious. It can be found at Electro Lounge in OKC
