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.

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.

libertine (418) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Cannot say anything other than disapointment. A tartness that is more of a sour than a dopplebock. It has cherry and raspberry notes in the aroma as well as the flavor. Very low carbonation. At 17 dollars for 11.2 oz is insane. A complete disaster.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2016
Very thick cream-tan head, slowly dwindling over muddy red-brown beer. Chocolate nose, some vanilla, cloves, and - indeed - an old (red) wine aroma; vinous, but the chocolate and clove are most obvious. Mint, clove, banana. Alcoholic, but much less vinous than the nose suggested. Red fruit (cherry), however is there, as well as wood. Pretty spritzy for an aged beer. Well-bodied, alcoholwarming; long lasting flavours. Some beer, Herr Peter!

Marduk (6440) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2016
375ml bottle (Zly Casy, Prague). Clear brown color. Small size, white head, stays as a ring. Sour, sweet, raspberry, vinegar, yeasty, caramel, balsamic vinegar in aroma. Sour, red currant, raspberries, balsamic vinegar in taste. Woody and acidic vinegar in aftertaste. I’ve said so many negative things, but this beer is actually quite drinkable. Sharp, but then again mellow. Quite drinkable.

Bawelt (583) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 31, 2016
Très étonnant surtout quand on connait le produit d’origine ! Très acide, quasiment une Rodenbach. Un nez très vinaigre, fond boisé de fut extrêmement perceptible, de belles notes raisineuses. Une bouche très acide, assez noble, des jolies nous fruitées bien vieilles : pomme, cassis/groseille. On ressent énormément les fûts de chêne, c’est même ce qui domine. Au final, un joli produit, assez étonnant de ce qu’on peut en espérer étant donné le style affiché.
