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!

Bottled. Dark copper red - almost black - appearance. Minimal head. Aroma is a little like dandelion and burdoch but yeasty. Taste is medium sweet and mild bitterness, with a long aftertaste and a smack of alcohol. Nicely drinkable but I wouldn't call it the most balanced beer.

Prakticky tady přidávám tento komentář, jen aby tady něco bylo, protože zpětně dopisuji 900 piv z mého seznamu a asi bych se musel u toho zbláznit.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2018 Color café opaco. Espuma baja de color café. Olor delicioso!!!! Caramelo, especias, plátano, absolutamente balanceado. Notas a uvas pasas o ciruelas pasas. Sabor delicioso!! Dulce, caramelo, cuerpo medio, varios sabores al mismo tiempo. A pesar de ser muy alcoholica, el alcohol no predomina. Sabor a pan en retrogusto. Sabores múltiples. De las mejores cervezas que me he tomado.

Strong fruity aroma, some sour notes reminded me of lambic. Hazy brown color, long medium off-white head. High sweetness and low bitterness, hints of alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy texture.

can't believe I have never tried as I love this style and Kulmbacher Eisbock is a top 5 beers - this is much different beer than K - more fruity especially in end. this was much better warm and will try again as I wasn't in love with this

Aroma is fruity and alcoholic. It smells like dried fruit, especially clove but also banana, peach and caramel. Clear hazelnut brown color with a medium sized white head. Flavor is medium sweet with strong sweet raisin taste, reminds me of portwine, but also clove and dried fruit again. Body is full, mouthfeel is thick, carbonation is lively. Finish is light alcoholic an sweet.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2018 Wygląd kompotu z suszu, zapach intensywny chleb potem morele i goździki, smak rodzynkowy, potem śliwkowy, dymiony, posmak alkoholowy. Udane piwo, mocny kompot bożonarodzeniowy.

Flasticka od damiana. Vona kvasinkova. Farba hneda. Chut silna alkoholova, jemne kvasinky.

Complex and sweet. Banna and dates with a touch of sharpness at the end. Rich and complex and very good. But losses its chance to refreash woth its killer strenght. One for winter!

Bottle from Damian. Pours hazy brown with thick shortlasting white head. Beautiful aroma, sweet, raisins, yeast, fermented fruits, malt. Great taste, very sweet, bit sour and bitter, malty base, plums, apples, nuts, soft carbonation, long fermented finish. Great piece.
