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!

Desmond007 (9) - Roskilde, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016 does not count
Smell: alcohol, fusel, metallic, dark fruits, prunejuice ( i get more prunes than bananas) celery seeds, spice, sulphur, oceanic, meaty, fatty, some zesty fruits like lemon/lime, roasted nuts, overly ripe fruits (plums, apples), caramel. Taste: alcohol, fusel, malt, malty bitterness, sweet, bitterness stays on tongue, alcoholburn. I think there are too many fusel oils in this beer, giving it a alcoholic "roughness". It’s not a refined beer. Some more hops, both bittering and aroma, would have made it more interesting imo.

PhilosophyGuy (305) - Lodz, POLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Aromat bardzo intensywny, pszeniczny, lekkie banany, goździki, melanoidyny, tostowy, ciemne owoce, trochę perfumy, szlachetny alkohol. W smaku słodziutkie, goździkowo-bananowe, nuty tostowe, lekko karmel, lekki pieprz, likier. Piana niska, szybko się degeneruje, mały lacing. Bardzo przyjemny, rozgrzewający alkohol, świetny balans między poszczególnymi smakami, gęste. Niesamowite!

Bottle shared at Gremlin. Thanks for sharing Davido! Pour looks almost like a barley wine. Big fruit forward, boozy nose with cherry, apricot and wild blackberry with lots of caramel covered banana. Spicy and peppery on the palate with average carbonation. Raisin and some dark fruit as it warms. Feels lighter as it warms. Warming finish. My first real eisbock. Good stuff.

AdolfoCC (146) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAY 2, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso, algunos destellos cobrizos a contraluz; corona de espuma color marfil de baja retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas que desaparece rápido. AROMA: muy licorosa, caramelo, azúcares no procesados, frutos oscuros como hígos, dátiles, se llega a inhalar y exhalar el alcohol. SABOR: complejo, las notas de frutos oscuros muy maduros como dátiles, hígos se combina bien con las notas de caramelo y azúcares sin procesar, además se siente el alcohol algo intenso, pero no llega a ser agresivo; el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero, seco y no astringente, sensación cálida en garganta por el alcohol. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio, carbonatación media baja. RESUMEN: Una buena cerveza de acuerdo al estilo.
