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!

RhetoricalAns (247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle. Murky brown pour with medium bubbly tan beige head that bubbles down but leaves some good lacing. Sweet aroma with lots of dark fruit, butterscotch. Taste is similar, lovely balance of sweet malts and a good amount of bitterness. The alcohol definitely comes though in both the aroma but less so in the taste. Medium body with lots of carbonation.

Murky red. No head to speak of. Sour cherries. Fruits. Smooth. Very good. Very much like a quad. Never had an eisbock before. This is a great style.

330 mL bottle from World of Beer. The pour is a dark dark brown/light black with a thin tan head that fades down quickly leaving no lace. There is a little bit of a soda-like dissipating nature of the head. The aroma is a little malty with a touch of yeast. There is a resounding sweetness on the back end, but it's relatively good. The flavor is a little different. I'm getting a lot of Belgian notes in it, which is a little strange. The yeast and malt are just surprising for an eisbock. The mouth feel is nicely done with a good carbonation to it and just solid. The aftertaste is a little lingeringly bitter, almost like a black licorice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Changed (360) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours the same as Aventinus, tiny white head. Aroma is sweet, boozy, dark fruits. Well carbonated, sticky mouthfeel, long lasting after-taste. Flavor is banana, ripe dark fruit, malt, alcohol burn at the end. One and done on this bad boy. A cold-weather beer for sure.
