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.

Bottle. Pours amber with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of malt, red fruits, some alcohol, dried prunes, oak, dark berries and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some oak, alcohol and some warming notes. Full body, soft carbonation.

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.

Bottle 543 of 688 and served in my Aventinus glass: Murky deep brown without any head nor lace, some oily tears. Holy intense aroma, dried dark fruits, concentrated sweet malts, vinous and winey oak barrel, and some roasted walnuts too. The taste is not the nose equal but still nice, plenty of vinous port like acidity and lush dark fruits over layers upon layers of malt and wheat, some old school oxidation rounds the palate. Too bad this is almost dead flat, some added carbonation and this could have been killer. Still I quite liked it overall. Happy New Years!!!

Bottle at Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a cloudy brown color with almost no head. Chocolate, dark fruit, malty aromas. Dark fruit, leather, grape, oxidized, cardboard flavors. Flat, oxidized, but kinda interesting.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to Dr. Owl for sending. Deutsch wælz. Thanks Danny! Pours a clear reddish maroon appearance with no head. Quite tannic and leathery, dark grape, caramel, toffee, fig, pretty intense aroma. Carbonation is pretty low. Somewhat oxidized, leathery, plum, fig, caramel flavor. Oxidation seems to cover the booze pretty well. Surprisingly not super flavorful but it was fun to try.

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Pours a dirty van dyke brown color with a touch of rising bubbles. the nose is earthy, spent chocolate malt, vinous raspberry, musty oak and a touch of vanilla if you try really hard :) The palate is a bit underwhelming... a bit muddy with some spent tired roasted chocolate malt, murky raspberry acidity pokes through... nothing close to what i was expecting. Pretty disappointed overall for the price of this bottle it really did not deliver.

Bottle #229/688. Thanks to Kevin at Grape and Gourmet for saving this for me. But unfortunately this just isn’t cup of tea, nor glass of aged beer. Syrupy and dark, with zero carbonation, this carries a liquor-like aroma. The drink is super viscous. This drinks with a thick vanilla and alcohol character, very liqueur-ish; I know the greater beer aficionados than I savor works of art like this, but as much as I try, I just can’t dig it.

Bottle. Sweet cherry almond and alcohol aroma. Clear chestnut, no head. Sweet dark cherry and oaky vinous flavor. Medium body.

suprchunk (2266) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Dark brown colored pour. Not carbonated, no head. No lacing. Huge malty caramel aroma. Raisins. Dates. Slight buttery aroma. Taste is a big malty flavor with peppery notes. Slightly bitter. Despite its shortcomings it is a superb beer. More along the lines of a fine wine with date notes. But fantastic.
