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.

Hopverdju (816) - BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2016
Donker amberkleurig bier met rode gloed en beige schuimkraag die vlug weg is. Geur: gebrande mout, zoet, alcoholisch, fruitlikeur. Smaak: zoet, redelijk droog, alcoholisch, mueslireep, gestoofde peren en donker en gedroogd fruit. Volmondig. Matige koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: alcoholisch, droog. Mijn eerste eisbock denk ik. Verrassend!

Lemans92 (5) - - DEC 2, 2016 does not count
No head, dark brown color. In aroma, plum liqour is easly recognized, i noticed also some soureness. Taste is strong but not overwhelming, and its a kind of suprise. Again plums and dark fruits are in front, alcohol is well hidden but warming. I wouldnt say its thin as syrup it is rather sticky and maybe carbonated to high. All in all, I dont like bocks at all, but this one is supereb beer to me.

Ysok02 (1112) - Mons, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2016
Robe brune, mousse crmeuse, peu persistante. Nez tout en lgance sur des notes florales, des agrumes, une pointe de farine, de crales, sur un fond de caramel et de pain brioch. Bouche lattaque onctueuse, crmeuse, un fruit dlicat, une belle bulle lgante et enrobe, puis lacidit et lamertume quilibrent lensemble. En effet une trs grande bire par sa persistance et sa complexit.

Majek (740) - Ząbki, POLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Clear, dark amber colour with no head. Medium intensive aroma of dark dried fruits, toasted bread crust and hint of banana. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with medium long duration sweet (fruity) finish. Warming aftertaste. Solid stuff.

gr_pa (438) - siemianowice, POLAND - NOV 17, 2016
Brown, really nice off white head, medium carbonation. Aroma: banana, caramel, hay, raisin, bubblegum, clove, plum. Full to medium body, medium to heavy sweetness. Again lots of banana in flavour, lots of dry fruits, quite a lot sweetness, but also medium bitterness. Greatly hidden alcohol (bit perceptible, but for 12% very nice). Surprisingly drinkable.

Demens (288) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2016
0,33l bottle. Beutiful hazy deep copper/brown colour with yeast drops and a medium lasting big foamy tan head. Aroma: Very intense! Caramel, honey, marcipan notes, but also has a serious tropic caracter with pine and banana aromas. Taste: Oh my god. What a beer. Sweet-sweet malty start with a very pleasent and well balanced bitter mouthfeel. Tha taste is so strong it keeps coming back after the sip. I cant feel the high alcohol in the sip just the warm feel in my stomach. Has some creamy texture. Full body with fizzy carbonation. In the palate a short sweet/bitter, than a medium lasting bitter, finally a long light sour finish. This is a hell of a complex beer. Fantastic!
