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!

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2017 wat een dijk van een bier.ik kom in de geur toetsen van kersen, chocolade,leer en gedroogd fruit tegen.Ook toffee en de alcohol, maar dat mag ook wel met 12% .De smaak is warm alcoholisch en prikkelt de tong.de kersen komen weer terug.De afdronk is iets droog met een zweem tabak en gedroogd fruit en blijft lang hangen.Dit bier blijft zich ontwikkelen.Ideaal om een goed diner mee af te sluiten.

mieszal92 (407) - Gliwice, POLAND - SEP 4, 2017
WTF?! Malinowe, ciasteczkowo-herbatnikowe. Herbata. Owoce kandyzowane. Baaardzo slodkie. Malo piwne. Nie pasuje tu to dosc wysokie wysycenie. Paskudny napój alkoholowy.

kluczbork (520) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 4, 2017
Bottle. Aroma- mega-intensive sweet plums, some spiciness, bubblegum and dark bread notes. Brown, a bit hazy, with a medium, creamy head. Taste- bready notes are stronger, then come plums and subtle caramel with bubblegum- everything well-balanced, but complex. Full-bodied, semi-sweet, with a medium carbonation. No alcohol feeling at all. Great beer.

VueltaBirrista (144) - Murcia, SPAIN - SEP 4, 2017
Su aspecto es imponente: color marrón y una tupida corona de espuma tirando a marfil, el rosario de burbujas subiendo por la jarra… todo!! Primera esnifada y primer chute de plátano, ciruelas y pasas. Primer trago y te das cuenta de que estás efectivamente ante cosa fina. Especiada y muy afrutada. Además se disfruta muchísimo el dulzor de sus malteados. El lúpulo (Hallertauer Magnum) tiene una presencia meramente testimonial. En resumen, una birra compleja y licorosa, recomendabilísima para acompañar unos buenos postres o para disfrutar una buena sobremesa con una de las mejores cervezas del mundo entre las manos.

Ok, good beer! But not for me! Not boozy stuff like this. It is a drug before sleep. And you fall asleep during drinking. Nice in heavy winter. Sweet, banana taste and aroma. Good with wurst and such kind of stuff. Beer of bock-men. Schneider aventinus regular is better.

GreenCat (170) - SLOVENIA - SEP 4, 2017
0,33 l bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with small light tan lasting head. Plenty of yeast floating around. Aroma is full of prunes, ripe bananas, raisins, dried figs, malt, some caramel, chocolate, yeast, light smoky aroma and some alcohol. Flavor is largely similar, but also full of cherries and wild berries. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, light to medium bitter, slightly sour. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is above average. Aftertaste is huge and long, starts with full of cherries then turns to mild spicy bitterness and leaves pleasant mild fusel alcohol warming feeling on your tongue. Once really warm it becomes too hot and unpleasant.

Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - AUG 30, 2017
Aventinus Eisbock pours a dark brown color with a minimal tan head. The dense and fruity bouquet is brimming with ripe banana, backed by plums, prunes, as well as molasses and develops a slight savory note over time, while the clove note is subdued compared to the Aventinus this brew is derived from. The attack is characterized by sweet and lightly roasty malts, caramel, as well as chocolate and is followed by a full-bodied mid-palate of brown bananas, dark fruits, spices, and a surprisingly muted note of cloves. The hop bitterness rises during the rich caramel finish with a light coffee note, in which the warmth from the alcohol is impressively well hidden for a brew that weighs in at 12% ABV. The thick, rich, yet smooth and surprisingly fizzy texture makes for an amazingly pleasant mouthfeel. Although whether the already great Aventinus benefits from the eisbock treatment certainly is a matter of taste, this big brew undoubtedly is a work of art worthy of praise.
