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!

This comes out of the bottle a deep, semi-transparent brown with a thick beige head. Aroma is strong and malty with a hint of molasses and a touch of hops. Flavor is rich and smoky, mainly malty but with a little hop taste. Texture is fairly smooth and with a nice ragged alcohol bite.

unclemike (3055) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Dark brown, unclear with frightening sediment. Powerful aroma, alchohol, fruitiness and raisins. Full bodied. Very sweet on the palate, raisins are the most dominent flavour, spice and berries, some banana. Strong and pleasant trace of warming alcohol on the finish, which grew consideribly as the beer approached room temp. A complex and interesting beer, although its individual componants are all great it doesnt seem to marry perfectly for me. Still very nice though

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Thanks to Nick for this bottle. Pour was dark with an off tan head. Aroma was strong of fruit, floral characters, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor was very strong of fruit, some citrus, wheat, and a big warming alcohol effect. Alcohol was very noticeable but was smooth and warming. Good brew. Would drink again.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Cloudy brown colored pour with thin off white head. Roasted malts, slight fruity aroma. Sweet and a little acidic, slight bitter finish. Not too bad.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2008
50cl bottle from Knightly Spirits (Orlando) courtesy of markwise. Pours a cloudy dark brown with very little head or lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, sweet caramel, maple syrup. Medium to full-bodied beer that tastes of caramel and toffee with a somewhat noteworthy alcohol taste at times. Interesting beer.

Dacrza (921) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Bottle 01568. Pours as black as velvet can get, with a thick, pillowy rootbeer head in a snifter--could be the fifth horseman of the apocalypse by its intimidation... complex scents-- citrus fruit, freshly mown hops grass, and a grapefruit mix... thin and crisp on the tongue... lingering aftertaste that holds like a pilsner... citrusy notes abound, with the slightest alcohol... hops are subdued, while the malts are impaling! HEAVY.... These guys are the masters, and though above my usual palate, this beer is a steam roller, obliterating any pre-existing taste in the mouth andforcefully asserting its power... memorable and warming.

Ive been eyeing this off at the local store for a while. Id never tried an eisbock and was perhaps put off by the alcohol content thinking itll be too overpowering. I shouldnt have never doubted this as just like every other beer Schneider brews, this was great. I think the other reviews nail the description spot on so I want add anything other than to say grab a bottle.

Bottle. Poured a brown purple body with a nice head. Aroma is brown sugar, sweet malt and dried fruit. Flavor is brown sugar, dried fruit malty and some grape flavor noted. For its high abv, it sure went down quickly.
