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!

Bardzo obfita, kremowa piana. Średnie pęcherze. Kolor ciemnomiedziany, piwo klarowne. W aromacie melanoidynowe, lekki banan, czuć charakter pszeniczny. Wyczuwalny alkohol. Piwo bardzo treściwe. Słodycz oblepia usta. Rozgrzewający alkohol. Goryczka jest słabowyczuwalna. Średnio nagazowane. W smaku słodkie, melanoidynowe i klimaty weizena - mocno bananowe.

Ar- malt sweetness is joined by dark and red fruit, plum, hints of strawberry, and strong alcohol Ap- dark clear Amber pour with little off white head retention. Flavor- similar to the nose, malt sweetness, plum and strawberry, strong alcohol, low to no hop bitterness Mf- full bodied, almost syrupy, low carbonation Ov- interesting beer though a bit disjointed for me. I like the subtle strawberry, but think it's a bit too hot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rich, malty, raisin and plum aroma with brighter spice notes from the wheat and yeast. Banana and molasses aromas also present themselves as a perfect synergy.

Fairly dark brown and just very slightly murky with an off-white head leaning toward orange.

Mouthcoating, full, dark caramel flavour with a complex and yet not overwhelming spicy character. Fleeting banana gives way to darker caramel / malt flavours on the tongue and the aftertaste is both brightly spicy and burnt sugar dark.

Undoubtedly one of the best beers in the world.

On tap: fabulous dense tan foam, slow to disappear. Wonderful nose, dense on the tongue.Really an intense experience, to savor slowly. Worth seeking in all cases. Excellent beer.

Pretty great bock. Main difference with Aventinus (Tap 6) is the high ABV, and maybe there is a little bit more character in this one. Sweet, roasted wheat malts... overall, pretty good.

Bottle, pours cloudy brown with high creamy head. Aroma of bananas, caramel, raisins, dried plums, figs, wheat, yeast and some alcohol notes. In taste high sweetness with some light alcoholy bitterness. The alcohol is burning a bit in the throat. Carbonation is very lively, a little bit too much n my opinion. All in all it’s a really nice surprise considering bock beer s usually completely not my style.
