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!

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/9/2013.11.2 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. 2010 vintage. A: Pours a very dark brown with good opacity due to the haziness of the yeast. Huge yeast particles settle on the bottom of the glass. This features really impressive head retention for 12% - I poured it about 4 minutes ago and theres still a solid off-white colored film left on top. S: The first thing I notice is huge dark fruit sweetness, along with lighter fruit esters and even some faded hops. After a while, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, and chocolate will enter the picture. Theres a noticeable oxidation to the aroma, giving it both a stronger fruit vibe along with an underlying soy note to it. The alcohol presence is mercurial; its about what I expected. T: Flavors start off with a lot of ripe cherries and wheat malt. Afterwards, it shows hints of soy sauce (in a mild, pleasing fashion), chocolate, ripe pear, and apple. Not quite as deep, or even as intensely flavored as I expected. Once it warms up, it becomes more and more boozy without really contributing much complexity, and after a while becomes even sweeter; though it also becomes spicier in the finish as well. So yeah, this does have a bit of complexity and depth to it. Warts and all, this is a hell of an experience - and honest to God, its enjoyable. M: At the first sip, its just about the silkiest damn thing Ive ever put in my mouth. After a while, it becomes a bit more astringent and even boozy. Combined with the carbonation, it features that subtle airy sponge cake quality to the texture. While its hard for me to taste the alcohol, its very easy to notice on the tongue, esophagus, and stomach - the syrupy finish doing its job to an extent. O: Fresh, Im sure the booze would knock my tongue out, but its done a good job of evolving into something soft and mellow...ish. I seriously cant imagine how boozy this would be with only a month or two of age on it. The warmer it gets, the harsher it gets - and the less I want to drink it. Worth a try, but drink cold!

rodbod (229) - SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle from the Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer. Nose is boozy, sweet, barley sugar. Taste is sticky sweet, treacly, dark slightly bitter. Palate is rather scratchy but oddly appealing. Good, but rather too boozy.

puren (783) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
OCZY: brązowe, skąpa piana natychmiast spada do obrączki, szkło zdobi nie piana a płacz;
NOS: likierowo słodkie, suszone owoce, wino, lekki alkohol, a także delikatny banan i goździk w tle;
USTA: ciało wysokie, kleiste, oblepia podniebienie i przełyk, średnio nasycone, bardzo delikatnie rozgrzewa przełyk;
JĘZYK: słodkie cukrem trzcinowym, kandyzowanymi i suszonymi owocami, przez chwilę goryczkowe drewnem i czekoladą;
OGLNIE: bogate piwo, esencjonalne w treści i smaku, a mimo to zdradliwie pijalne (szybko wypite 12% błyskawicznie daje o sobie znać).

jamwnukers (239) - Legionowo/yrardw, POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Butelka 0,33l, data przydatności 29.01.2021r.
Aromat - Słodki, śliwki, lekkie landrynki, lekki dym, morele, lekko winny, pełny, lekko waniliowy. Bardzo przyjemny, powiem więcej świetny!
Wygląd - Barwa głęboko rubinowa, klarowne. Piana średnia, zbita i twarda, barwy ecru, średnio pęcherzykowa, długo się utrzymuje w postaci kożucha, ładny lasing.
Smak - Wytrawne, suszone owoce, trochę dymu, lekki karmel, alkohol wyczuwalny w postaci rozgrzewającej w przełyku. Głębia okrągła, ładnie wszystko ze sobą gra, choć mogło by trochę poleżeć. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego. Goryczka niska, ale zaznaczona lekką piołunowością. Bardzo dobre piwo!
