Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes.

The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.

Een middelmatig bruin bier waar er zoveel van zijn. Zowel de smaak als de geur zijn niet slecht maar ook niks speciaal

BOD 2010. From the label tied on with a purple cord, "Therefore in 1999, the SCHNEIDER brewery decided to start aging a limited number of cases of AVENTINUS each year in their historical ice cellar in Kelheim with each batch held for a minimum of three years." Pours a dark amber with a deep dark ruby hue. Outstanding head volume, good retention and excellent retention. The final pour delivers yeast sediment from bottle conditioning. World Class rich complex nose of dark fruit (raisin, plum) over a rich malty caramel base. In the background are notes of banana and clove with a hint of chocolate. Full bodied with a rich creamy texture. Well carbonated with rich effervescence from the middle on - palate perfection. The flavor profile is World Class - intense, complex and perfectly balanced. It begins with a burst of raisin and plum that slowly yield to chocolate notes over a surprisingly subtle caramel sweetness. The middle effervesces into a burst of banana and clove. As these flavors fade, a subtle bitterness emerges as does a hint of alcohol. The finish is a slow fade with notes of bitter chocolate.

strap (505) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 19, 2015
Powerful aroma of bananas, some brown sugar and spices. Could inhale this all day long. Multi tiered flavor, banana on the front slight licorice and alcohol on the end. Very good stuff

King_Alex_II (255) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Dark brown color. Banana, licorice and dark malt flavors in the nose. The taste is very heavy, effectively hiding the notable alcohol content. The taste is dominated by dark malt aromas, licorice and banana notes. I think the beer taste is a bit too heavy.
