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 Beer:Shop St Albans. Very dark brown, off white head, which dissipates to nothing after a minute. Nose is big. Big malty, liquorice, clove, cinnamon, lots of dried fruit, dried figs, toasted malt grain, rye bread, toasted bread, caramel, big alcohol . Taste is liquorice, yeast extract, clove, cinnamon, rye bread, toast, raisins, Christmas cake, spicy, caramel. At the back there’s a lot of fruit. Ripe banana, raisins, sultanas, dried fig. It’s big and bold. Underneath there’s the subtle characteristics of a wheat beer with banana, lemon, bread, but on top there’s layers of spice and dried fruit. Shading into slightly cloying for my palate, but it’s not too heavy.

From a metric 12 Oz bottle into a weizen glass. Pours a purple brown. Lots of sediment. No head but bubbly lacing. Shoe leather and deeeeeply data fruit and cognac. Mouthfeel is light and slightly different. suppose it’s from the lager yeast but I’m not a huge fan. Taste is fantastic. Dark smokey Pete. Fruit and leather flavors. A real treat.

Butelka 0,33l Aromat bananów i generalnie pszenicy. Smak wytrawny, mocny alkohol jak dla mnie zbyt mocny.

Bawelt (272) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 24, 2015
Attention : énormément de dépôt ! Une bonne bouteille à faire vieillir. Le nez est assez fumé, beaucoup d’alcool, presque une Doppelbock. Des notes perceptibles de banane comme la Tap 6. La bouche est bien plus complexe (à laisser reposer une dizaine de minutes). On a du fumé, du sirop d’érable, un fond assez vieilli, assez noble de type armagnac. Un peu de fruits rouges confits. Une longueur banane très concrète. Un peu trop d’alcool d’où un intérêt pour un vieillissement en cave.

0,33 l Flasche. Aroma: Alkoholisch, vergorene dunkle, rote Früchte und Banane. Erscheinung: Dunkelbraunes, trübes Bier, cremefarbener, cremiger, flacher Schaum, keine Gardine. Geschmack: Stark nach Alkohol, rote Früchte und Banane, malzig süß, gleichzeitig eine gewisse Säure. Nachgeschmack: leicht scharf wie ein Schnaps, weich, schaumig am Gaumen. Gesamt: Gutes Bier, aber sicherlich nichts für den Alltag.

bg80 (67) - California, USA - DEC 22, 2015
From small bottle. Rich cloudy mahogany color with small head. Strong intense and dense flavors of dark fruits, wine, and alcohol which crowd out the wheat but not completely. If you like really strong beers, this is very tasty and drinkable.

Cloudy, hazelnut brown colour, small white head. Honey-caramel aroma. Impressive taste with hints of almond, dark chocolate and banana. Long-lasting bitter-sweet and roasty palate. Brilliant!

vinivini (912) - BELARUS - DEC 18, 2015
Deep brown, hazy, moderate airy head. Retention below avarage. Lacing present. Dense aroma of syrup, dry fruit, prune, port wine, some yeast, wheat. Full body. Thick palate. Soft carbo. Sweet taste with notes of port wine, prune, spicy yeast, roasted malts, light hop bitterness. Very boozy. Nevertheless alcohol not really accented. It’s a great experiance still the regular Aventinus is better.
