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!

Bottle at Winterbierfestival. Gouda: Dark brown coloured brew with an taste of almonds, liquorice, dark fruits and hints of banana. There is a sticky aftertaste and a warming mouthfeel due the high alcohol.

Piana obfita drobna, opada do krążka. Kolor ciemny bursztyn. Aromat banan,goździk, owocowo słodki, karmel,przyjemny. Smak ponownie banan i goździk, karmel, skórka od chleba, drożdżowe fenole, suszone owoce, lekka paloność. Piwo pełne słodkie, przy tym pijalne z ułożonym alkoholem. Bardzo Dobre WOW

Aromat karmelowy, może lekko palony. W smaku słodycz dość wysoka, alkohol ładnie wkomponowany w całość. Dobre. Czuć po zapachu, że to garnki ze Schneider Weisse.

Schneider Weisse is one of my favorites and their Aventinus Eisbock never disappoints! Carmel, toffee, fruity and smooth. Great dark brown color that requires a tall frosty glass. I prefer it bit colder than traditional German pubs serve it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iphonephan (7200) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2017
From a 33 cl bottle. Pours a clear amber with an ecru head. Aromas of caramel, toffee and candi sugar. Heavy sweet flavor with a smooth, warming finish.

GhostS (491) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 10, 2017
Aromă ușoară, cu multă caramelă și malț caramelizat, zahăr ars, puțin alcool, ușor melasă, dulceață de nuci verzi și fructe ușor fermentate. Gust ușor și foarte plăcut dulce (ideal, mai ales pentru tăria și concentrația care o are), tărie de alcool, cu un ușor efect de astringență, ce trece într-o plăcută căldură după înghițire, ceva amăreală pierdută prin alcool și abundența (dar foarte bine balansată) de caramelă și malț caramelizat, dulceață și ceva fructe caramelizate. Extraordinară și excepțional de bine balansată. Etalon!

rafax (386) - POLAND - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown, hazy with medium, frothy but not very stable head. Strong and intense aromas if dried fruits, malts, red wine, cloves and dark bread. Taste is sweet with red fruits but also typical for weizen flavors, surprisingly dry but still with pleasant, oily mouthfeel. Very well balanced with just a bit alcohol warming in the finish. Very good!

sebsky (276) - ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
