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!

Hopverdju (817) - 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!

Brązowe z przeciętną pianą. Aromat dość intensywny, przypieczona skrka od chleba, tost, chleb, toffi, karmel, dojrzałe owoce, śliwka. W smaku płsłodkie, dość alkoholowe, wyraźne melanoidyny i śliwka. Nasycenie średnie, płpełne.

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 (439) - 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.
