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!

LagerGuide122 (661) - - APR 7, 2021
UPDATED: APR 7, 2021 330ml bottle brewed in Germany at 12%. Dark, muddy ruby with an ample, surprisingly very good-duration robust head. Deep meaty (iron?) aroma (yes, really) with sweet traces of nuts and that familiar Schneider clove with light banana undertones. Very low carbonation, just adding a bit of texture; smooth but chewy mouthfeel, freely but sluggishly flowing. Almost meaty iron notes here, too, with a deluxe Belgian chocolate and chestnut mid-section and some classic banana creme and Schneider clove spice to finish - well-balanced by the richness of the other flavours. Make sure to get all that sediment in there for maximum banana/clove vibes - it may take a lot of swirling! Complex, but not in the sense that there's a lot going on - there isn't - but that what's going on is rich and deep and greatly rounded. As you'd expect, really, from a 'concentrated' beer. Rock-solid sipper, sharing its lack of wow-factor with its regular namesake, and instead choosing to simply deliver a deluxe rich gourmet drinking experience. If a BMW was a drink, this might be it.

Cheeseboard (2129) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2021
UPDATED: APR 5, 2021 330ml bottle, online from Beers of Europe. Pours brown with a red hue, off-white cap. Sour fruit, burnt caramel, toffee, dried fruits, light banana esters, hugely boozy. Moderate to heavy sweet. Medium body with moderate to frothy carbonation. Definitely a sipper!

kamillozo (489) - POLAND - MAR 28, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2021 Piwo pod światło ma głęboką, rubinowo-czerwoną barwę, jest klarowne. Piana jasnobeżowa, obfita, drobna, trwała – utrzymuje się na powierzchni w postaci dość grubego, drobno-pęcherzykowego kożuszka. W aromacie estrowe nuty lekko cierpkich czerwonych owoców pestkowych (wiśnia) oraz gronowych (ciemne winogrono, ciemna porzeczka). Wyczuwalny lekki alkohol, który jest trochę jabłkowy, a także odrobina estrów bananowych. W smaku dominuje wyraźny alkohol – nie w postaci spirytusowej ale taki winny, estrowo-owocowy, powodujący rozgrzewanie w przełyku. Profil smakowy tego piwa podobnie jak aromat jest ogólnie również wyraźnie estrowy, owocowy. Tu jednak zmierza bardziej w kierunku słodkich suszonych owoców, choć jabłkowość, bananowość i cierpkość pestkowych owoców jest rówież obecna. Całość dość intensywnie nasycona. W skrócie: nieco zbyt agresywne przez intensywny alkohol, wyraźnie estrowe.

lebermilz (506) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2021 Reddish brown, dense off-white head. Black bread, malt, some PX sherry. Smooth, sweet, doesn't feel like 12% alcohol.

nephirem (1549) - CROATIA - MAR 3, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2021 Bottle, 0.33l. Murky, muddy brown/amber pour, lots of yeast floating in the glass. One finger creamy beige head. Medium lasting, good head retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Strong malty nose, toasted caramel, dried fruits, hints of wine-like notes. Quite interesting. Full body, soft carbonation. Soft mouthfeel and texture, creamy, smooth, chewy. Mouthful of goodness. Sweet taste with subtle boozy bitterness. Huge malty aroma, toasted caramel and toffee, bready notes. Ripe dark fruits, grapes, plums, liquorice. Molasses, cinnamon. Sugary, sticky, syrupy. Notable alcohol presence, lingering burn, nicely warming. Long lasting finish, sweet and boozy. Rich and tasty, tastes similar to barley wine. Very good.

wozap (1800) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - FEB 6, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2021 Butelka do 2021.01.29 Nieco spełniło się w szyjce po otwarciu. Miedziane, klarowne, piana ecru, drobna, syczy lekko i redukuje do cienkiej obrączki. W aromacie wyraźnie i intensywne suszone owoce, melanoidynowość - prosto w sumie, ale przyjemnie... W samku jest słodycz, owocowość w typie suszonych owoców, a w kontrze wyraźne nuty tostowe, opiekana skórka chleba i pikantność od drożdży na finiszu. Alkohol lekko też się przebija, jak to w mocnych pszenicach bywa, ale jest w ryzach. Nasycenie niżej średniego.

mkcmagico (965) - Mezokövesd, HUNGARY - FEB 1, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2021 0,33 bottle. Gyönyörű aszalt szilva szinű testes telt folyadék. Hatalmas, tömör, tapadós, gyönyörű, krémszínű habbal. Aroma: pici élesztővel nyit, ahogy a hab lejjebb megy, és melegszik, aszalt gyümölcsös, szegfűszeges-szilvás háttér+élesztős gyümölcsös búzasör illat keveredik. Fantasztikus az íze is! Tömény szilvalekvár, édeskés, frissen szénsavas, nagyon-nagyon komolyan testes. Cukros, de hozzáadott cukor nélkül - nem úgy mint belga bajtársai. Persze az alkohol azért elő-elő jön. Lassan, egyre melegebben kortyolgatva ajnálatos inni. Kiemelkedő, első osztályú desszert sör!!! Gyönyörű, fél ujjnyi barnásfehér hab végig látható. Egyre komplexebb ízek. Belga kedvelőknek is ajánlott, mert igen: alsó erjesztésű sörben is lehet olyat csinálni, mint amiket ők tudnak... Hihetetlen jó sör!

defabant (437) - ITALY - JAN 22, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2021 Color tonaca di frate con riflessi ramati. Versa due dita di schiuma che svanisce velocemente. Aroma di caramello, frutti scuri, spezie. In bocca intensi sentori speziati, note di crosta di pane, frutti scuri e caramello. Alcol abbastanza percettibile durante la bevuta, ma non invadente. Ottima birra.

3.9
Peter_L (1607) - SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2021 Rubinbrun vätska med lågt och tunt skumlock. Tydliga aromer av mörkt bröd, typ kavring och lite sultanrussin. Rejäl maltkropp med mycket fyllig munkänsla. Mer russin och mörkt bröd. Ordentligt eldig och lång eftersmak.

3.5
unclefrito62 (1449) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2021 11.2 ounce bottle at The Winking Lizard in Peninsula, Ohio. Smell the sweetness and malt. Brown in color with big white head. Taste the alcohol and malt. Taste strong. Smooth Malt alcohol, and sweet aftertaste. Bad ax beer. Cheers!
