COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

BrockLanders (770) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours a translucent brown with a light brown head. The aroma is sweet of raisins, fruit, plums, and very faint hints of wheat. The flavor is very sweet with notes of raisins, wheat, plums, and other fruits...maybe a tad too sweet for my tastes, but still pretty tasty. Very full bodied...thick, smooth mouthfeel. Nice alcohol presence in the finish. Liked this more than I figured I would.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2005
12 oz bottle from 2004 # 06117. Amber to brown color with large, beautiful head (especially nice in its own glass). The aroma is incredible...why drink it? Caramel and sweetness wafting everywhere. The flavor is dark & malty with delicious caramel, cherry, plum, port. The 12% ABV is a bit masked. What a delicious big, beer. Find some.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Plumb, raisen, alcohol aroma. Tan head and medium brown body. This doesn’t taste like a 12% beer, but you feel it. Very full sweet malt flavor with nice soothing finish. Quite nice.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
Pours a muddy brown color with ruby highlights and a ring of lace around the glass. Great aroma of apples, maybe other fruits too with malt. Excellent flavor of apples, rich, heavy malt and alcohol. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Great stuff, different than the Kulmbacher Eisbock but as good IMHO.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2005
Off-White head on a hazy brown body. The aroma is rather complex, with tones of fruits, sweet malt and spices. For a beer this strong, the alcohol is very well hidden, and the drinking is very easy. This beer leaves a warm, comfortable impression. Very good brew.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Pours a hazy, dark brown with a thin, quick settling off-white head. Lightly carbonated in appearance but kind of tingly in the mouth. Complex. Aroma of sweet malt and dried fruit with a hint of banana. Full body. Dried fruit flavor with touches of alcohol, well hidden at 12%. Slightly bitter aftertaste leaves you wanting more. Very good brew. One of my favorites. Well, top 10 anyway.
