Schneider Aventinus Eisbock matured for 15 months in Pinot Noir Barrels. In 2010 Hans-Peter Drexler started a new project : maturing some of his finest beers in wine barrels. He enjoyed the expertise of brewmaster Jérôme de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland who grew up in a wine producing family. Thus, they created delicious new beer aromes. Mein 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. This beer is recommended with chocolate and red fruit dessert or a blue cheese. however, as it is so powerful that it can easily be enjoyed by its own.

330ml dark olive green 2014 years bottle, tagged bottle number 906, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is hazy brown with no head. Aroma of barnyard, cherries, plums, oak wood notes and table grapes. Flavours of cherries, plums, table grapes, chocolate, vanilla and oak wood notes. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and light sour. Palate is medium bodied, slightly sticky texture and flat carbonation. An interesting and unusual style of beer. Overall decent, but did not live up to my expectations. The aroma is okay and reminds of a Belgian sour brown ale, but the taste is however too sweet, flat carbonation and just slightly tart.

Ktwse (2210) - SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2014
Pours murky, UGLY brown with no head. Aroma of wine barrels, sweet cherry, light red grapes, sugar, some form of barrels. Taste is boozy, overly sweet, followed by light sour finish. Body is light to medium and sticky, with no carbonation. Overall, a rather unpleasant experience and not at all what I had hoped for.

Pours a rather unappetizing murky brown with no head. Aromas of cherries, raspberries, oak, vanilla, slight chocolate and malty roasted notes. Taste is cherries, raspberries, vanilla, oak, chocolate and malty roasted notes. Mouthfeel is quite flat with no carbonation. Good, but I expected more actually.

Huhzubendah (2650) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle 365/688. The beer displays a dark brown / burgundy body, appearing nearly still. Nice aroma, featuring port, sherry, oak, dark fruit, plums, figs. Smooth and complex. This one drinks like a port wine or after dinner digestif. Alcohol presence is there, but not overpowering by any means. Light to medium in body with no carbonation. A fun beer to sip and enjoy.
