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!

Aroma: huge alcohol, dark malts. Appearance: nice ruby color, small beige head. Taste: ridiculously huge alcohol, which destroys everything. Very hard to drink such stuff. Malty backbone and medium alcohol bitterness. Palate: full body and medium carbonation, alcohol aftertaste. Overall: One of the worst beers I’ve ever tried in Germany. I quite don’t understand the idea of this beer.

Amazing beer. Body of a doppelbock beer, but this beer is so much more. Has a deep taste of dark fruits, oak and the warmth of the alcohol. Very good.

Cloudy brown with a hint of orange. Light tan head. Deep, dark fruit and malt. Raisin, fig, and an earthy quality. Smooth and full.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Dark murky brown color with white head that quickly vanishes.Ripe plums with a hint of bitter almonds on the aroma. Also banana and clove. Full bodied and warming on the palate.

[Köpenhamns ölfestival 2014] Det här var gott även om alkoholen sken igenom ibland. Smaken bar toner av banan och russin, kroppen var stabil till tusen och balansen fulländad.

Just found my notes on this. I poured this into a weizen glass. The appearance was a nice dark brown to almost black color with a decent one to two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds and ends up leaving a decent amount of foamy lacing. The smell was wheaty yet had a nice allocation of dark chocolate malts and some nice banana coming out to assist in a wonderful aroma. The taste was basically sweet through the chocolate and banana and the wheat ended up backing all of that up in a decent manner. There was no aftertaste and yet there was a slight dry sweet banana finish. On the palate, she sat about a medium in body and wanted to show a decent sessionable quality to it, but for the most part, it really wasn’t. I sipped this and enjoyed it thoroughly that night I had it. Overall, in my opinion, this was a nice beer and a great weizenbock.

une mousse marron de taille moyenne. L’arôme de bannane, de pruneau, et clous de girofle. Le goût est très intense au début et s'adouci peut a peut, fruits noir, levure, blé, et un peu d’épices. Une très bonne biere!!!
