Matured for two years in French Pinot Noir Barrels.

Our brewmaster, Hans-Peter Drexler, and Jerome de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland matured some of the famous Aventinus Eisbock in red wine barrels for many months. Enjoy this rich combination of the complex Aventinus Eisbock aromes and the woody character from the wine barrel.

Aventinus Eisbock Barrique welcomes you with an intense raspberry, cherry and vanilla aroma. A very rich and harmonious taste of chocolate, vanilla and berries will explode in your mouth leaving a lasting and pleasant after-taste reminding you of good red wine. I recommend this beer with chocolate and red fruit dessert or a blue cheese. However, as it is so complex that it can easily be enjoyed on its own.

Only 688 bottles produced.

A violent and complex taste experience. Aventinus and Aventinus ice buck store TAP6 barrique into four different ones, before they are united to an incomparable Cuvée and improved in the unique tailor white fermentation in the bottle.

Thanks to Alex for arranging this beer! Bottle looks awesome. Beer in the glass dark, almost black. Starts very strong, modest alcoholic, some fruity notes of berries. Reminds me more of a Barley Wine than a Weizenbock. Finish more balanced, more intense malty. Still warming-alcoholic. Interesting beer!

low carbonation, lots of bread, chocolate, caramel, moderately sour, but a bit all over the place. Lovely sour nose. What is weird is that it is very drinkable with the acidity. Almost like a beer. Really amazing in idocity, but not sure what to think. Extra points for originality. Beer got better as it warmed up.

Bottle. Bretty nose, dusty, caramel, raisin, cherry, chocolate, vanilla, oak. Very complex and subtle flavors, bretty, with chocolate. Fun, complex, and surprising. A bit shocking at first to have a barnyard Aventinus, but this really worked, and got better as it warmed and opened up. Thanks to Shuichi for sharing!

What a oddly beautiful beer. Woody and very fruity it is as smooth as the proverbial baby’s b. Very beguiling and shapeshifts on a number of occasions. I went back and forth, but in the end it is a class act. Some nice full brett, but not over the top. Rich, but hiding ABV well. Some plum, berry and dried fruit in the body. Very Orvallian in many ways, though much fruitier. Top draw.

Bottle 750ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG12, Ulfborg.

[ Bottle # 120 ]. Unclear medium red amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, caramel, light to moderate yeasty, moderate to light heavy oak. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a long duration, sweet malt - fruit, sweet fruity, oak - wood, seet yeast. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. IMO. the oak is to dominating, maybe been to longtime on the barrels. [20120818]
