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 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!

radio_nowhere (1474) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle into snifter glass, hazy chocolate brown color with creamy light tan head. Aroma of heavy malt sweetness, dried dark fruits (raisins, dates, figs), banana, clove, honey and a red wine-like note. Taste brings out notes of toast, plums, toffee, some cinnamon, pretty yeasty and booze. Heavy body, low carbonation, rich, creamy, malty with some lingering malty yeasty booziness. Very much like a quad, delicious.

Pours a slightly hazy deep brown colour with white head which quickly dissapears. Classic wheat beer aromas of banana and cloves are present, alongside big malt driven fruity aromas and strong alcoholic notes. Taste is warming, spirit-like with malt and alcohol dominating the palate with very little hop bitterness. A sumptuous blend of caramel, toffeee, plums, some spice and breadiness...strong, rich and complex yet really smooth. Fantastic beer.

Потрясающее пиво с глубоким вкусом. Пиво весьма красиво выглядит, темное нефильтрованное с белой пенной. Аромат алкогольный,четко чувствуется черносливом. Вкус открывается резкой кислинкой и крепостью напитка. И быстро перетекает в мягкое фруктовое послевкусие. Всем советую попробовать, возможно лучшее пиво от пивоварни Шнайдер.

W aromacie dominują klimaty ogniska, kandyzowane owoce, wędzona śliwka i rodzynki. Jest zdecydowanie za bardzo nasycone, próbowało nawet uciec z butelki. Odgazowane jest już bardzo fajne. Przede wszystkim ogromna likerowość cechuje to piwo. Dużo ciemnego chleba, tytoniu, jest tez coś w klimatach lukru, są też pieczone banany. No i jest też ciut alkoholu. Jest kompleksowe i złożone jak najbardziej, ale z drugiej strony jednak niczym nie porywa. Tak czy siak, trzeba docenić to piwo.

Daboch (172) - Gdansk, POLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Ciemnowiśniowe, mętne piwo z niezłą pianą. Aromat winny, owocowy, trochę czuć alkohol. W smaku podobnie śliwki, rodzynki, lekko kwaskowate, alkohol grzeje w przełyku. Bardzo dobry eisbock

DonGregorio (552) - POLAND - NOV 4, 2017
2016 bottle. Cloudy, even muddy copper to brown colour, small tan head with good lacing. Aroma of plums, dried fruits, raisins, caramel, bananas and light bread. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter, plums, dried fruits, figs, raisins, bananas, with notes of caramel, bread and alcohol. Fruity and boozy bittersweet finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, average carbonation. Overall: very good beer, reallly intense, with great flavour depth, with a bit too much alcohol in taste (even after 1,5 years - I need to try older version).

Piana dość bujna, trwała. W aromacie intensywne suszone owoce, dalej czerwone owoce, w ogóle jest zaskakująco owocowo, winnie, kompletnie zero jakiegokolwiek karmelu, czy w ogóle słodu. W smaku trochę słodyczy, owocwe znane z aromatu, dalej dość mocny alkohol. Nie jest jakiś super nieprzyjemny, ale na pewno jest go więcej, niż bym sobie życzył. Anyway, smaczy.
