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!

12 oz from the Coop for about $5... enjoyed from my HotD goblet. Not much head at all ... deep amber brew. All sweet bananas and raisins ...a touch of pink bubblegum and cloves. Deceptively smooth for a brew with this much alcohol ... medium body and pretty explosive carbonation on the palate. Flavor is bananas and the expected bubblegum.. thick "raisin box essence" on the finish. Some caramel mid palate. Lingering spicy clove esters. Very good, but so rich it is only a 1-2/year indulgence.

Bottle from Liquor Barn, poured in a pint glass. Dark brown amber with aroma of plums. Creamy full body. Sweet caramel malt and alcohol taste. Sweet finish. Packs a lot of nuance for a beer with so high an ABV.

Dark copper color, clear, one to two fingers off-white head. Sweet, pleasant, malty aroma with notes of red wine, plums, cherry, sherry, biscuits and just a tiny touch of alcohol. It’s also thick and dense in the nose. In the mouth it’s a little bit over carbonated, but except that it’s very smooth, full bodied. Taste is very fruity as well but in the same time it’s more biscuity, cookie-ish, winey. Alcohol is super well balanced, put all together, hard to notice it in taste far a 12 abv beer. It’s like dessert, not drinkable for sure. Awesome beer.

Really interesting beer. Despite high alcohol volume it’s quite drinkable. Aroma of smoked plums and some champagne makes the beer even more interesting.

Foerdifuxx (229) - Franconia, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
Deep hazy brown coloured beer with a big, cappuccino coloured, medium to good lasting, head. Aromas of plums, bitter almond, toffee, clove, bread, heavier claret, whiff of perfume. Taste is plumy, heavy wheaty, malty, some lighter fruitiness shining through towards finish, peppery, spicy yeast all over it. Lasting warmth. Heavy body, oily texture, average carbonation. Beautiful!
