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!

whatalesya (21) - New Bern, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Purchased at Wine and Wares in Jacksonville, NC. Poured a dark amber-brown, thin tan head that lingers. Spices, banana, bready malt, alcohol in the nose. Smooth and creamy mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Taste is spicy, slightly over ripe banana, raisins, rum like, with the sweet toffee-like malt very strong. Alcohol shows up as warming, but doesn’t overwhelm the flavors. Warm, very sweet finish that hangs around awhile. Fairly complex in its flavors. Not outstanding, but very good.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Bottle. Powerful aroma of ripe plums, banana, a bit of soy sauce, and alcohol. Deep reddish brown body, small light tan head. Flavor has wheat, fruits, sweetness, alcohol burn. Extremely high quality beer, but for my tastes the alcohol is a bit too much.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Aroma- Rich sweet malts with significant fruity esters of plums, grapes, and dark fruits, no hop aromas, no diacetyl, moderate alcohol aromas mix the sweetness Appearance- Dark brown hue with amber highlights, slight haze and particulates in the glass, off-white head mostly dissipates Flavors- Rich sweet malts balanced by a significant alcohol presence, light melanoidins and toasty flavors, no hop bitterness, no diacetyl, moderate fruity esters of dark fruits significant midway, smooth alcohol warming, clean lager, finish is sweet malts and alcohol Mouthfeel- Full-bodied, low carbonation, smooth and thick texture Overall- A malty lager with a surprising amount of alcohol presence due to the freezing process & concentrating process, flavorful fruity esters and rich sweet malts balance out the alcohol, drinkability suffers from the abv but not the taste
