Aventinus, the Wheat Doppelbock of Bavaria, has always been known to be the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world. This was the case for the past sixty years, but not anymore...
Up until the 1940’s, Aventinus was shipped all over Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Consequently, the precious drink partially froze during transportation. Unaware that the brew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid. People were baffled by this unique version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created.
Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster of the Schneider brewery, decided to recreate this classic "mistake" in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later ... Prost!

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 6-30-12, A great GREAT bock. Surprising fruitiness (one taster said it reminded him of juicy fruit gum - in a good way). There is moderate carbonation with deep malts. Delicious. 7-25-14- nice deep plum and ripe cherry notes on top of malt goodness. 9.5 bd. 8.7 joshK

Dark brown ruby red beer with little beige head. Aroma has ripe sweet banana, toffee, licorice and alcohol. Flavor has licorice, sugary sweetness, raisin and ripe banana. Palate is quite full and foamy in the mouth. Finish has mild bitterness but alcohol makes it long. Aftertaste is sweet with licorice liqueur, ripe banana and salmiakki. Very sweet slow sipping brew, but straight-forward.

janubio (455) - SPAIN - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a almost black clour, with a big off white head. Good retention. Smell of dried fruits, spices, vanilla, clove, banana, lemon, alcohol. Medium body, one expect some more. Taste of prunes, figs, whisky, coffee, banana, spices. This is a hell of a beer, complex, rich and one that I sure will buy more.
