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 bottle. Murky brown with no head. Rich red wine aroma with red berries, slight vanilla, a touch of acidity, slight cocoa, slight coffee, oak as well as light spicy wheat. Taste is slightly acidic with sweet red fruits, a touch of vanilla and oak barrel tones. Not much of the original beer is detectable except for a touch of wheat sweetness and a hint of spicy dryness. The mouthfeel is medium going from sweet to dry and the carbonation is non-existant.

sample, i’m a fan of the aventinus eisbock from draft, so expected a lot to try this extra aged version from draft! poured a darked slight murky dark red colour with almost no carbonation. big earthy notes, red grapes, vineous, caramel, raisins, bad bad vineous tones. it’s clear that not everything improves after barrel ageing. aventinus eisbock is allready to complex by it’’s own
