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!

Z: Banan, goździk, palony chleb, biszkopt, estry w stronę śliwki, przechodzące w wiśnie i intensywny alkohol. Bardziej w nalewkę niż ordynarny spiryt. S: Pełne, ciastko zbożowe, dalej chlebowo, słodko, śliwka finisz lekko podwędzany, likierowy. Finisz zostaje na dość długo.

mezr (121) - California, USA - APR 2, 2017
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. A cloudy brown with no head, just a thin tan film. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, dark fruit and a hint of smoke. Strong, sweet flavor with cloves. Thick in the mouth, full body, lively carbonation. Long finish in which the alcohol comes through.
