Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Bottled. Hazy reddish-brown color with impressive but vanishing head. Bready aroma with banana, smoke and berries. Bready, sweetish and warming flavor with notes of banana and dark fruits. The finish is silky, oily and warming. Great beer with deep flavors!

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 Huge, long-lasting bubbly head. Dark brown/amber/reddish color. Flavors were a complex blend of malt, caramel, a hint of raisin/fruit. A great, great beer. Extremely refreshing, easy to drink, not too heavy at all.

The Aventinus Dopplebock was a nice suprise. The pour was a very dark brown, with hues of red as well. The head was a quickly subsiding burst of bubbles the color of carmel. The aroma was very fruity and wine-like. The taste was very fruity, with a belgian quality to it. The finish was smooth and somewhat dry. A very nice brew."

Comes highly recommended so a lot to live up to. Redish dark brown colour pours nicely out of the bottle, average size head, but long lasting. Mild citrus hoppy aromas, with a touch of spice. Slightly sweet taste, but not too much so. Nice full body.

Muddy brown-red colour with great white head. Banana, fruitiness, some citrus and plums in the aroma. The taste is equally impressive, with the caramel taking over, lending a sweet edge to the taste. A lightly vinious touch enhances the fruity flavours in a long-lasting aftertaste.

dark reddish brown pour with big head...sediment present...aroma is big in clove, banana, and caramel...flavor is quite strong and is comprised of sugary malts, spice, cinnamon, and has a big dopplebock backbone....nice palate, and a great beer

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - JUN 24, 2006
My first and problably last weizen bock. Too sweet for my likings. Lots of clove and banana. Just like a Hefe but with some caramel malts and a touch of roastiness. Too much sweetness in the finish too. A bit cloying and syrupy, but it got high points for aroma and appearance. Huge head and a nice purple brownish body.

haukur (1800) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 24, 2006
I was expecting something a bit stronger, clovy aroma reminding me a lot of Franziskaner Dunkel. Fruity and malty. Sweet, fruity with a nice bitter finish on the tongue. Very nice, but didnt live up to the hype

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a ton (and I mean a ton) of carbonation. I had to pour this into my dimpled mug in shifts. The aroma has hints of fruit, with a really sweet tang. The flavor is interesting. Initially sweet with a nice bitter finish. This beer kept improving the closer to room temperature it got to. Nice yeast flavoring, and excellent choice of malts. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.
