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!

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Flaske. farven er mørkebrun og skumkrone er der ikke meget af. Den er i hvert fald hurtig væk. Aromaen er malt og rom, og smagen er karamel, rom og mørk chokolade.

Echon (195) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle, 33 cl. Dark brown body with no head. Very little aroma except for some caramel sweetness. Rich flavours, however, with ripe fruit and some yeast. Slightly boozy. Moderate/heavy sweetness with light bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Smooth and tasty. This is the first eisbock I have had, and it makes me want more to explore this style.

Salwal (217) - GERMANY - DEC 11, 2015
Had this one years ago. Now again to be rated. Poured it into Snifter, it poured a light Brown beer with off white head. No lacing and quickly vanishing head. Nose is yeasty with some banana and wood hints. Taste... Oh well comes in pretty hard astringent alcoholic raisin. Finish is more floral. The alcohol however has some bite definitely no everyday drink. Might be a very good beer but not much of my Type.

Pours brown, little bit hazy. Medium, long lasting head. Aroma is fruity, mostly bananas, nice. Very smooth, low carbonated beer. When it comes to taste, at first you can feel banana sweetnes, then a little bit of alcohol but also pleasant. At the end there’s something like bread and very nice medium bitterness, mostly alcoholic but enjoyable anyway. Aftertaste lasts quite long.

Flaska från @thaalcoholic, som vanligt, tack! Dimmig rödbrun vätska med beiget skum. Doftar fruktigt tungt. Härligt tung fruktig smak med en känsla av alkohol... Har bara druckit en Eisbock tidigare och den här spöar den med hästlängder. God!

Wonderful, bold, complex, best Eisbock I’ve tried. Seriously spirited fruitcake in a bottle with consistent hints of the 12% ABV throughout. Other Eisbock beers have a 1980s deja vu Löwenbräu Dark taste, but not this one. The character is all its own. Formidable Eisbock does the tradition well.
