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!

Looks a little bit like carbonated prune juice with a short-lived, tannish head. Raisin bagel aroma. Sticky sweet with a sharp alcoholic pepperiness. Slightly acidic burn as it goes down; otherwise very smooth.

Low carbonation and dark (although I’m in a very dark bar right now, and it’s hot out). Malty, sweet, and alcoholic in flavor. The flavor is HUGE. Very tasty, and a little hard to describe. Upfront. I need to try this again and wrap my brain around it some more.

330ml bottle #067993. wow… You know you are drinking serious beer when the bottle has a serial number. Murky dark brown beer with floaties and a nice head that soon dissipates due to the high alcohol content. The aroma is intense fruit and alcohol.. lovely.. I have no idea how they get beer to smell like that. Flavor is equally intense sweet fruit with an alcohol burn but it doesn’t feel like 12% until you are well into the glass and catch a nice buzz. Very complex and interesting. Spicy and delicious… Definitely world class and awesome. Regular Aventinus is my favorite beer in the world and this gives it competition. Simply amazing.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2005
A complex and challenging beer. Dark, reddish-brown hue with almost zero head and a strong torrent of chocolate-cherry liqueur candy, plum, raisins and port in the fragrance, some diesel as well. Those sweet flavours come out early on in tasting, leaving a distinctively wheaty aftertaste that is short-lived. Strong hint of apple or pear cider and (obviously) icewine. Oily palate with little carbonation. Slightly noxious; or maybe I just can’t handle my liquor. Hard to believe this is made from typical beer ingredients! A unique experience, not sure how often I could repeat it.

Has lots of sediment floating (and not moving due to viscosity) and pours murky dark brown with head that goes very quickly. Strong doughy aroma. Sweet roasty malt date chocolate taste not bitter but warms you. It expands as you drink it. Very filling...

Bottle at Monk’s....Pours out a nice dark brown color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma is very nice with notes of fruit and spices. The taste is suprisingly smooth for such a heavy beer. The flavors range from sweet fruit to dry plum with a few notes of chocolate and roasty malts. A very dangerous beer to drink

Bottle. Brown beer with a thin beige head. Lots of yeast floaties. Fruity/caramel aroma. Big caramel flavor with lots of date/fig/plum. Some alcohol present.

Pours a deep brown with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma is fruity, apples, plum, some chocolate undertone. Taste is sweet and malty, strong alcoholic kick, really intense and flavorful. Mouthfeel is very sweet and syrupy, almost like melted chocolate, but you don’t really taste much chocolate in the taste. A great beer.
