COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aventinus, the Wheat Doppelbock of Bavaria, has always been known to be the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world. This was the case for the past sixty years, but not anymore... Up until the 1940’s, Aventinus was shipped all over Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Consequently, the precious drink partially froze during transportation. Unaware that the brew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid. People were baffled by this unique version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created. Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster of the Schneider brewery, decided to recreate this classic "mistake" in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later ... Prost!

nayoro (14) - - SEP 6, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2020 Pours a deep autumnal ruby caramel brown. Aroma: alcoholic cherries, bananas. Taste: Fantastic; how to describe? Plum. Red wine. Marzipan. Banana bread. Some clove. Some describe this as heavy. If they mean extremely flavorful then yes. But I find this really refreshing and all too easy to neck. Lovely carbonation; just right. One of my very favorites.

peki (94) - Vranjic, CROATIA - JUN 19, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2020 Dark brown color, small beige head, no resistance. Malty, sweet aroma, some fruit, with alcohol feeling. Also alcohol feeling on taste, but with addition of sweetness and lasting fruity feeling. Really nice balanced, but because of combination malts and fruits with higher ABV it is not for everyone taste. I am delighted. Moderate body, medium carbonation. Do not drink more than one for full pleasure.

Badylatko (378) - POLAND - APR 14, 2020
UPDATED: APR 14, 2020 Piana beżowa, nietrwała, nic z niej nie zostało po...sekundzie lub dwóch. Barwa ciemno brązowa. Aromat sporo słodu, karmelu, cukierków z likierem, pszeniczny, banany w alkoholu. Smak to intensywne połączenie: słodu, karmelu, kawy, lekko czekolady, do tego banany, pszenica, a to wszystko podkreślone mocno likierowym posmakiem. Mniam.

Gangstergafje (2371) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2020 06-04-2020; bottle; at home (bought Bier&Zo, Rotterdam, The Netherlands); 07-09-2020; bottle; Terneuzen (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their September 2020 discovery box). The looks of the beer are nice. It is a nice copper coloured beer, with a reddish copper glow. It has a slight haziness. On top of the beer a nice layer of slightly greyish-white foam is formed. Foam retention is low. A minimal drape is left on the beer only. Not bad. The aroma of the beer is nice. There is a rich malty palate. Toffee and caramel, together with some refined smokey and slightly toasty notes. There is dried fruit, plum and nice dark tobacco. I like a robust maltiness like this. It gives a rich sweetness. Hops are herbal and a bit earthy. A bit dark, good together with the darker but warming malt notes. It is a harmonious beer. Alcohol gives a sweet aroma. Some fruity yeast notes finish it. The yeast is quite strong. There are also some nice aromas of tobacco and plum, adding to the fruity and caramel aromas. It is a lovely beer for the autumn or winter, but it isn't bad for end of summer either. The taste is nice. It is quite sweet. Not only the malts give strong sweetness, also the alcohol is nice and sweet. Hops give bitterness and also these slightly toasty and roasty notes give some bitterness. The result is a sweet beer, yet it remains balanced. Shouldn't be even a bit sweeter though. The palate off the beer is allright. Medium-full body, thick full texture and medium carbonation. The alcohol is quite heavy. The finish is filled with that warming alcohol sweetness, just the max. Glad I have a small glass only. This is a beer that should be enjoyed at ease. Also some nice malty aromas are there in the finish. A nice beer it is. Heavy, intense and full.
