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!

Bottle from Drinks of the World. Pours hazy brown with a medium head. Boozy nose, but in a rather exciting way. Some wheat too. Sweet taste, still boozy, but I don’t mind, since it fits with the rest of the beer: Lots of fruits, heavy but not too much, fizzy carbonization.

Marrón tirando a borgoña, con abundante espuma que rápidamente desaparece dejando un cordón. Aroma a hierbas medicinales, y ligero plátano. Algo de alcohol también. Mucho cuerpo y carbonización media. Muy suave y cremosa de textura. Al principio malta, y luego van apareciendo sirope, miel, y recuerdos de frutas tropicales. Y seguro que mucho más (hay sue repetir). Muy compleja. ¿Y el alcohol? Está, no hay duda, calentando todo el conjunto… Muy buena.

.33l pour from refrigerated bottle into a stemmed tulip. Deep brown and nearly totally opaque with a tiny bubby off-white head. Nose is forward-- a little sour smell, a little earthy. Gives a good indication of what to expect. Similar to a sour brown ale. A sour front gives way to a full dark malty body. A little nutty earthiness and then a sour finish. Dark fruit (some plum and lots of raisin) throughout. Not as puckering as most dedicated sours, but way more than your average dark beer. I like it. It feels like there are a lot of flavor levels to pull out. Definitely worth trying.

Bottle shared with friend. Probably one of the tastiest beers I’ve have tried. Punch of sweet dried fruit, fruit cake and marzipan. Thick and chewy. Just delicious.

King_Alex_II (672) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Dark licorice color with very little foam. The smell is heavy wheat malty with caramel licorice bananas. The taste is heavy, screams licorice and a little Christmas (at least it’s well done for a snowy winter night). The beer has a background carbonation, that is extremely well dosed. The beer is not my style. The aventinus was already a bit too heavy and boozy for me, and this one is even more extreme, but this beer is so round and balanced, that it’s still a pleasure to drink, so I recommend this, even if you wouldn’t describe it as something I particularly like.

Bottle at home. Cola like pour with long lasting white head. Aroma is malty, a bit of wheat and caramel. Taste is caramel, a bit of fruit, bread and wheat. Smooth, not really boozy tasting for such high ABV. Pretty good beer!

McSherman (343) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2015
Dunkelbraun mit wenig hellem Schaum. Geruch: Banane, Nelke, Pflaumen, Alkohol. Toll! Der Antrunk ist eine Wucht an Aromen: Trockenpflaumen, Lakritz, Gewürze, Rum. Das Mundgefühl ist ölig und schwer. Der Alkohol lässt das Bier langsam abklingen. Sicher ein perfektes Dessertbier. Absolute Empfehlung!
