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!

This beer is very close to perfect in my book. Very powerfull taste. Can’t be drunk quickly but must be enjoyed slowly on a cold night in front of the fire.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Draft at the Biergarden, Portsmouth VA, 10/28/06: This is what beer is all about. Bright but deep, dark red. Restrained but almost sour aroma. Also a bit of sour essence. Underlying brown sugar alcohol strength. Classic.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2006
Murky brown body, huge creamy light brown head; Big fat nose with loads of clove, some oak and quite a bit of ripe berries, mostly blueberries and cherry; The body is really thick (to thick), very little sparkle, only slightly bitter; It finishes with some length, slightly bitter and some aroma that are simpler then the nose. Very strange beer, especially its texture.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 minimal head and lacing, christmas pudding and strong alcohol in aroma and flavour, very intense beer, im so stunned I dont know what to write, the only word that my mind can comprehend at the moment is ’good’. this is a good strong beer, a beer for experienced beer drinkers to savior.

Hazy mirky colour. Ripe banana and clove swirl around in it. Very fruity and intense mainly due to alcahol content. Real winter warmer that begs to be savoured. Seems to hit you pretty hard and wouldnt wanna drinkn too many of these. Very syruppy that lingers in your mouth

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown body with a white head. Smells of yeast and malt. Flavor begins a bit malty and finishes with a bite of wheat and alcohol. Alcohol in end is actually refreshing and hits you quickly. Mild carbonation. Very fruity all throughout. Mmmmm. A delicious brew. Lucky to find it on Guam.
