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!

Thanks to Degarth for this one. Pours deep turbid brown with a huge, foamy, overflowing white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, hops, and tons of dark fruit. Tastes malty, with dark fruit, toffee, and cabernet at the finish. Medium, firm palate. This beer is awesome, and i didn’t taste a lick of alcohol.

almost as good as the weisenbock. Deep brown with banana and cloves. Typical of the brew. Malty as well. Maybe a bit too much alcohol because all the nice fruit tones are drowned out. Excellet regardless.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2004
Ripe bananas, raison, rum, and malt nose. Carries over to the flavor iwth spicey banana bread, bubble gum, andwarming alcohol. Finishes with more banana and alcohol.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 A rich brown body with a thin light brown head... then an acrid, bitter aroma.. which I kind of liked. It makes a thick, rich mouth-feel with a caramel maltiness. The finish is surprizingly clean, considering the thickness of the brew. Not bad.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Positively loads of yeast ... great big globules and hunks of the stuff. Nice murky brown color. The aroma is loaded with bubble gum and grape Koolaid. Tons of maltiness, some astingency from the yeast, overbalanced towards the sweet end, the alcohol isn’t perceptible. This is a beer that I enjoy in spite of me.

temporrari (380) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Pours dark amber, almost no head. aroma doesnt get you excited, but the flavor makes up for that with malty sweetness and some complexity. very smooth for the ABV. Nice beer, a bit overpriced.

PhillyBeer2112 (2496) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Worrisome aroma of smoke and green olives, though all very mild with the aroma virtually non-existant.. I happily discovered, though, that the flavor wasn’t lacking - instead it was backed up with plenty of malt. Strong full body, sweet toffeeish Munichy bocky malts. Rich and smooth, really good stuff. Weizen esters are buried though. Aroma begins to fuill out as it warms but still the beer is at its best at moderately cool temps sufficient to restrain the huge malts. Dark reddish-brown, head faded quickly.

Bottle at the Maproom. This Bock reaches belgian complexities. Chocolate, prune and roasted nuts turn quickly from liquid to ethereal fume in the mouth and nose. The alcohol is leveraged expertly to give this an aromatic quality. A great "reeses peanut butter cup discovery" story on the label.

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Dark brown color, sweet spicy aroma, sweet spicy alcoholic taste, full body, heavy alcoholic finish. To much alcohol taste, but ok. 6-4-5-3-10 RE-RATE. Bottle, between 1 and 2 years old. Orange brown colour with a big tan head. Light sweet caramel malty, dark fruits aroma and taste, light alcoholic.Medium to full body with a sweet light dry, light warming finish.

Vigorous carbonation, pours with a huge head but it dissipates to nothing. Large yeast particles als circulate constantly. Strong sweet aroma of plums and some alcohol. Sweet, malty chocolate and fruit taste. There is an alcoholic hit at the very last second. Good but not nearly as good as the regular Aventinus.
