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!

huge white head with a dark brown appearance. dopplebocks have always been strange to me, it feels as though the maltyness overshadows the wheat flavor and vice versa. this is good, a subtle wheat flavor with some malty undertones. the high rating surprised me, but maybe i’m just not a fan of the style

Bottle. It pours a clear, deep copper with a beige head. Generous amounts of malt, alcohol and dried fruits in the aroma. Warming alcohol, lots of malt and dried fruits in the flavor as well. Full body. A long warming finish with loads of malt, dried fruits and a good dash of alcohol ends the experience. A truly wonderful bock. Gimme more! (070427)

Pours a dark brown with a white head. Aromas of bananasand dark fruits, some alcohol in the nose.Wow for a 12% beer this not what I was expecting. The alcohol is very well concealed. Big bold flavoura abound, banana, clove, cherries, bread, sweet thick malt stucture with only a finishing touch of alcohol. Top noch.

Thanks to Brock_Landers for the bottle. Pours a deep, murky brown with a medium head. Little retention with no lacing. Aroma was dark fruit, brown sugar, toffee and a bit of bananas. Raisins, toffee and wheat in the taste. A bit of heat. Full body. Sticky texture. Long, sweet finish. Very good.

JohnnyJ (5076) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2007
Bottle 2006/03987. Pours a dark brown with a decent sized fizzy light tan head. Aroma of plum, dark fruit, raisin, vanilla, and wheat. Flavor is sweet and rich. Raisins, plum, fruit, wheat, banana, and spice. Moderate amount of carbonation keeps the mouthfeel from being to heavy. Tasty.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - APR 28, 2007
Pours maple syrup dark with a slightly off-white head. Aromas of vanilla, cardamom, and a nutty malt with no appreciable hop bouquet. Unsurprisingly this tastes like a concentrated Aventinus: plum-like flavors with sweet maltiness. Contrasted to regular Aventinus this has a bit more alcohol heat. Lots of body and a well balanced palate. Very clean finish.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2007
Sweet smelling, raisins, plums, hint of banana. Very hazy when first poured, like cider. Deep brown. Very sweet and sharp, again, similar to the scent. Considering the alcohol content, this is a very smooth beer. Wheaty notes all the way through. Wow.
