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!

WortMeister11 (186) - TAIWAN - DEC 9, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2019 Aroma: clove, banana, dried dark fruit, caramel and toffee, alcohol Appearance: hazy copper color with a three-finger tan head and fizzing bubbles. Taste: clove, banana, dried dark fruit, caramel and toffee, alcohol, medium-high sweetness, medium bitterness Palate: full body, syrupy texture, low carbonation, medium dryness, booziness and some alcohol spiciness Overall: Clove and banana, though not as prominent as that in hefeweizens and weizenbock, are still well-recognizable and mellowed. Being concentrated from Schneider Tap 6, it is thicker, richer in maltiness and dried dark fruitiness making it reminiscent of a Belgian Dark Strong, and also boozier which unfortunately makes the drinkability considerably lower. still a nice choice for a cold winter night.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2019 # 529; 11/2016; # 1163; 7/2018. Vynikající mnovrstevnatej eisbock. Velmi silné ve stupních alkoholu i ve výraznosti chiti. Alkoholově hřejivé, povidla, portské víno, ovoce (višně, fíky), kořenitost (hřebíček, perník). Prostě paráda.

PubTun33 (125) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2019 330ml glass bottle from Whole Foods Market in Kensington. Dated as best before 09/07/2023. Served into a chalice style glass at cool room temperature, about 10 degrees centigrade. The beer pours a rich deep dark burnt caramel colour. Tons of sediment is visible in the glass with lots also clinging to the inside of the bottle, despite my best attempts to liberate. A small tanned colour head of fairly consistent medium bubbles develops, but does away just as quickly. The first hit of aroma is strong on malt and sweet caramel or confectioners sugar. Reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale. Some limited banana, and plenty of boozy alcohol. The taste follows similarly to the aroma. Sweet with malt and caramel. Sine banana and some fresh dark red fruit. Plum, fig. No real spice, which I would have expected. Some alcohol presence but limited compared to other stronger ales. Think more wine than liquor. The wine comparison lends to the drink overall and not just the level of alcohol presence. Similar to a medium bodied french red, like a Pinot Noir. Slightly boozy in the mouth with malty sweetness dominating the palate. A very good beer. Definitely a great one to sip slowly on a cold winter night.

weizen-slayer (260) - Passau, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2019 Eisweizenbock mit absolut brutalen 12 % Alkohol und 25,5 % Stammwürze. Ein Weizendoppelbock ist schon ein Bierexot - ein Eisbock toppt das noch. Hierzu wird der Aventinus Doppelbock angefroren und da der Wasseranteil zuerst gefriert kann man diesen leicht entfernen und übrig bleibt die Bieressenz (mit dem ganzen Alkohol). Um eins mal vorweg zu schicken: Mit Bier hat das nicht mehr viel zu tun. Geht schon stark in Richtung Likör. Und trotzdem (ich kann es kaum glauben) - das Zeug ist lecker, ausgewogen und gut trinkbar. Viel Süße und Malz, aber auch herbe, würzige Noten und ganz viel Alkohol. Interessant, muss man mal getrunken haben. Sollte aber unbedingt wie Likör oder Likörwein behandelt werden.

HourGlass13 (1775) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2019 Dark amber pour with a tan head on top. Spicy cherry apple aroma. Taste is deep dark and malty. Dark fruits and spices mix in a complex malty sweet beer. Simply amazing.
