loeil : Dun brun fonc et brouill, elle laisse une lgre mousse sur les abords du verre. Trs peu deffervescence prsente. Au nez : a sent le bl, le sucre, les fruits schs et la banane trs mure. Assez complexe on va se le dire ! Au got : Banane, rglisse et caramel sy mlange chaque gorge. LAventinus est juste assez sucre et ptillante, se laissant mourir sur une finale rtie. Juste wow !

DezzAmore (10) - Milano, ITALY - APR 18, 2017
bottiglia. 0,5 L. Bellaspetto, ambrata scura. Molto complessa e particolare. Buona, anche se un po pesante, sia per il corpo che per la gradazione, entrambi importanti. Rispecchia perfettamente lo stile doppelbock; mentre il frumento utilizzato nella ricetta non incide particolarmente n sul gusto n sullapparenza (la birra si presenta abbastanza limpida e la schiuma non particolarmente persistente).

ginotarugo (34) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2017
Highly overrated, not bitter but STRONG alcohol taste. I had to chase it with water, not fun. I spent way too much money special ordering a case of this ($5/bottle). Going to give the remaining 23 away. A true struggle to finish 1 bottle of this. Disappointing. Troegenator blows this away.

50 cl. bottle. Hazy dark copper/brown coloured with a creamy beige head. Head is at first frothy but it dissipates more quickly than some other similar styled beers. However, it stil keeps a thin head for a long time. Aroma is banana-dominated along with ripe fruits such as plums and raisins. Some alcohol can be smelled. Taste is sweet, fruity and somewhat spicy - really pleasant. Very slight bitterness and some sourness can be tasted, too. It is a full-bodied and creamy-textured beer with average-to-high carbonation. A bit warming in throat and chest but it still has a smooth feeling, smooth and pleasant finish. Well-balanced. This beers RateBeer rating is higher than that of Tap 5; however, even though this is indeed a very good beer, I think I like Tap 5 better.

Heidbummer (518) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2017
Bottle at home. Floral, banan-ey, malty, toffee nose. Pours hazy auburn with a generous off white head. Big soft caramel sugary mouthfeel, but with a decent whack of booze behind it. Quality.
