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!

ngunity (157) - - DEC 26, 2016
From bottle in Germany. Poured with a large, medium bubbled head with great retention and lacing. Appears near black and opaque with a hint of deep copper in the light. Aroma is reminiscent of a Belgian dubbel lots of sweetness and a little booze. Taste is a masterful balance of dark malt with a little wheat that isn?t too sweet; but the beer itself is malty sweet. Palate is smooth if a little oily and a little gas which isn?t tasted but felt.

bartlebier (3719) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2016
33cl, 1st vintage in a series of cellared bottles: Limitierte Abfllung 2012 -155680 (bb01/18). - Smells, pours and tastes like a plumwine and brandy doused bread/plum pudding, pretty smooth digestif destillation of what is heavy about the Aventinus Weizenbock, adding quite a burn on the swallow. Aromas of umami soy, sherry, stewed apple, massive sherry and Madeira (fortified wine) in flavour, making it great in and with a slow pork pot roast... -
