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 1940s, 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!

Good Spirits Co. Glasgow (330ml for 5.20):
Strong plum aroma and a lot of banana to kick things off, along with some figs and nice amount of alcohol. There is some raisins, a bit of bubblegum and a lot of spice up next, this together with some darker fruits and sugar. The smell of this one has a lot of depth and there is some clove making an appearance to along with some spice and grapes.
Chestnut brown with some deep red tinges and a huge foamy head that is very slightly off-white.
Alcohol to begin with but nothing overpowering, this is followed by most of what the nose promised. The taste consists of banana, cloves and dark fruits with figs, raisins and especially plums all featuring. There is some spice as expected and spice as expected along with a few malts. this taste is rounded of with some sweetness and a boozy alcohol flavour.
Full bodied and quite sweet with no bitterness and a fair amount of carbonation. It is quite boozy and dry towards the end and it certainly packs a punch.

The flavours where very well balanced and the beer went down better than I was expecting whilst still having to be sipped. The aroma was really something special though with each smell complimenting the previous.

ogonczyk (138) - Ruda Slaska, POLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Aroma of ripe banana, dried fruits, some toasty and caramel notes. Tastes like dried fruits, banana and some notes of plum in chocolate. Almost oily mouthfeel, very sweet, carbonation is very low. Very tasty.

SvanteL (436) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2017
Mycket mrkt rdbrun, rejlt grumlig med stort finbubbligt skum. Doften r vins med massor av torkad frukt, sedvanlig skumbanan, jstighet och kryddighet plus en lite syrlighet. Smaken r minst sagt fyllig, vins med lckra fruktsmaker och kryddor samt en liten fin avslutande beska; de 12 procenten alkohol r helt integrerade i smaken. En vetel i kubik! En l man blir lycklig av, sa min fru. En underbar smuttarl att frgylla en kvll med! En 2010:a testad 13 januari 2013. Inte lngre grumlig utan det finns i stllet en fllning i form av flagor i botten. Sagolikt god med massor av katrinplommon, lite mandelmassa och en rejl eldighet. Maffigt!

Dark head disappears quickly, but its normal for high alcohol volume beer. Tawny colour, hazy. Aroma of evident banana, liquorice, caramel in the background and a hint of chocolate. In taste banana, sweetness, alcohol is noticeable but very well balanced. Fantastic beer.

dunklermessias (30) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2017
0,33l Bottle. Pours with a hazy brown color and large ivory head, which disappearces quickly. Only at the first moments, there are some smoked-bacons notes - just sloghtly. The nose is very nice: Raisins, banana, yeast. Taste of bananas, Belgian yeast, malty and sweet (caramel). Full-bodied and good carbonation.

jandorris (570) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Piwo w kolorze brunatnym, z dosyć szybko znikającą pianą. W zapachu jest cudownie, pierwsze skojarzenie to banan z ogniska, no dokładnie tak to piwo pachnie, poza tym trochę wiśni i suszonej śliwki. W smaku jest przede wszystkim słodko, dosyć łagodnie, po chwili uderza likier wiśniowy. Bardzo fajne jest to piwo.

Arek (1064) - Zielona Gra & Wrocław, POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnobrązowe, mętne piwo o beżowej, niezbyt obfitej pianie oraz przyjemnym, śliwkowo-bananowym, podwędzanym aromacie. W smaku gęste, słodkawe i likierowe, zdecydowanie owocowe - dominuje śliwka, banan i wiśnia, ktra przełamuje słodycz kwaskowym posmakiem, finisz natomiast z nutami goździkowymi i mocno rozgrzewający gardło.
