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. Pours a very dark brown with an aroma of fruit. You notice the alcohol in this one but it is not overpowering. A very thick enjoyable beer. I think this would be best enjoyed after a cold winter day. I think I will save my second one for just such a day.

VDuquerroux (490) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Trade with @Jahana. Merci !! A dark brown opaque earthy beer with some yeast sediments ; medium beige creamy head ; medium retention. Roasty aroma, fruit (raisin, banana in the end), spices, biscuit, licorice. Medium sweet (round and warming), light bitter. Full body, silky-oily texture, average crabonation, sweet lasting finish, warming background. Overall, a great beer : my first eisbock ! Extraordinary... Aroma changes through the tasting : banana is more and more intense. Palate is also impressive : alcohol is just there to maintain, never to impress.

Vili (93) - FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
33cl bottle (17.12.2018). Cloudy dark brown pour with thin light-brown head, no lacing. Aromas of ripe fruits, especially ripe-ripe banana, some dough as well. Taste is somewhat sweet, alcoholic and warm. Aftertaste is a bit too much alcohol, but in a red-wine-makes-you-warm -way. Strong stuff, would be interesting to store this one a bit more...

Nez sur la banane et le chocolat , premičre fois que je touche a une bičre avec autant de parfum au nez. Longue en bouche, arômes plutôt sweety , alcoolisée et ça se sent . finale plutôt sur l’amertume

Pours chocolaty with a thin white head. Aroma is stewed prunes. Taste is fruit cake, it’s very heavy.

Bardzo ciekawe piwo. W aromacie guma balonowa i alkohol. Z wyglądu ponad przeciętne. W smaku wytrawnie. Warte spróbowania.

ogniskowicz (257) - POLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Aromat: banany, goździki, rodzynki, suszone figi, nieco gumy balonowej, do tego mocarny, ale wciąż szlachetny alkohol. Wygląd: koźlak tylko bardziej. Smak: gęste, bananowe, z nutą przyprawową, sporo suszonych owoców, rodzynek, karmel, skórka chleba razowego, wszystko w ogromnych ilościach, pełnia słodowa tego piwa poraża. Goryczka nieistotna. alkohol szlachetnie rozgrzewa wnętrzności. Niby nudny styl do potęgi, a wrażenia degustacyjne niesamowite.

Pedrens (69) - SPAIN - FEB 23, 2015
Botella a Medias con Marta. Color marrón rojizonoscuro. Espuma beige de baja-media formación y baja retención. Aromas dulces y especiados donde para mi gusto domina la salsa de soja, con alguna fruta madura, y matla muy de fondo. En boca es sedosa, sin apenas carbonatacion, dulces a frutos rojos, cola, soja, con un pequeńo toque especiado. El final con las mismas sensaciones, largo aunque no demasiado potente. Da la sensación de limpiarte la boca un poco. Desde luego es especial. Muy bebeible. Los 12 grados camuflados por un prestidigitador.

KW92 (139) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 21, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa brązowa, zmętnione. Piana drobna, niska i trwała.
AROMAT: Typowy dla "pszeniczniaka" (banany, goździki, guma balonowa) z ta różnicą, że w tym przypadku zapach jest nieporównywalnie bardziej intensywny. Czuć również aromaty charakterystyczne dla stylu "Blond", czyli brzoskwinie i morele oraz przyprawy. Gdzieś w tle delikatny ledwie wyczówalny karmel i zbożowość.
SMAK: Jest dokładnie to samo, co w aromacie (banan, guma i goździki), lecz przez wysoką zawartość alkoholu posmak wyżej wymienionych "smaków" jest obecny niemal non-stop. Nasycenie wysokie.
OGÓLNIE: Fascynujący styl! Można znaleźć tu podobieństwa do: Blonde czy Hefeweizen. Wytrawne, z wyraźnie zaakcentowanym alkoholem, który fajnie "podbija" aromat i smak piwa.

CanCrusher (710) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Murky, dark amber colour with small, creamy, light brown head. Banana’s aroma dominate, can’t find anything else on the nose. Taste starts light bitter, hoppy and fruity. finish is medium bitter. Interesting, there is almost no alcohol taste (OK, a little) for the 12% abv beer.
