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!

Uklar mørk brun med lavt beige skum. Alkohol, tannkrem, brunt sukker, tørket aprikos og rosinlukt. Søt kandissukker og mye alkoholsmak. Mye alkoholvarme i ettersmaken. lite kullsyre

Bottle @ home. A murky dark brown color with a dense little head that leaves some lacing. The intense aroma displays strong ripe banana - you do not have to get close to smell that - spiciness featuring cloves, vanilla, wheaty maltiness and dark fruitiness. Taste is heavily sweet and spicy. It is rich in cloves and ripe dark fruits, slightly less banana-oriented than the aroma. Very potent, long taste; full-bodied, sticky, smooth and flat palate. Some alcohol in the long finish, not disturbingly, though. Delicious.

Fantastic powerful fruity aroma, a little citrus in it. A murky brown appearance with a thin white head. Initial molasses flavour with a hint of citrus. Has a smooth finish that ends with a tiny bite from the alcohol. Very easy to drink

Dark reddish pour with a huge head. Aroma is sweet ripe fruits, banana, plums, brown sugar, yeast, some alcohol. Promising. Taste is sweet ripe fruits, bananas, malts, yeast, mild warming alcohol. Fullish body, some bitterness in the finish. This is really good, definitely warms you up on a cold winter day :D ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful rich aroma of dark fruits, caramel, spices. Similar notes in taste, rather sweet, full-bodied, a bit of alcohol in aftertaste. Wow!

Smells like banana bread, tastes like candy. Aging this would make it great.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown amber with a beautiful creamy two finger off-white head. Aroma of malt, ripe dark fruits, blommer in madeira (plums), slight burnt sugar, ripe banana and some yeast and toast. Slight clove and wheat. Taste is quite sweet. Wheat, yeast, malt, banana, plums, burnt caramel, cloves, brown sugar, toasty finish. Full creamy body, low carbonation, warming alcohol in finish. Really nice winter warmer! Love the glass.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Strong fusel fruity aroma with a hint of caramel. Nice murky swamp-water body but the head dissipates almost immediately. Flavour is strong wood notes, thick and chewy on the mouth with hints of molasses and sugar. Very sweet and oily. Heavy and rich, rather intense, but quite cloying. Unbalanced and overpowering.

In nose- champange like notes, also dried fruits, raisin, plum. Full and strong in taste, few alcohol notes in finnish. Dark fruits and caramel in taste, very sweet and full mouthfeel- syrup like. Clear dark amber colour with little to no head.
