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!

Very dark brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma was roasted malt, dark fruits, clove and banana. Quite sweet but with lots of plums, molasses, apple, banana, chocolate and smoke. A slight touch of alcohol in the finish. A very nice beer

33 cL bottle (#061887). Pours hazy brown with a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Very little head, but it was off-white to light brown and crispy when poured. Carbonation keeps working in the glass. Strong dried fruit aroma with dark portwine like notes. Thick mouthfeel. Dark roasted malt, strong raisin flavour into strong sweetness with a solid alcohol base beneath. Slight clove spiced from the middle towards the finish. Long lasting alcohol lifted finish with dried fruits and roasted malt. Very nice, complex flavoured but still very clean and accessible palate.

The aroma is sweet of raisins, fruit, plums, and very faint hints of wheat. The color is a clear brown and it has a beutiful light brown head - and is served in a very beutiful glass. The flavor is very sweet with notes of raisins, wheat, plums, and other fruits - a little too sweet for me. It ends on slightly wheaty note with the alcohol hitting you right in the end - but then it gives you warmth in the cold of winter. It has a good palate.

Cloudy dark brown beer. No head. Light dry palate, turns softer quickly. Dark toffee, unsweet and a little spirity and spicy. Banana, well buried. Soft spritzy minerals before the dry finish which has a spirity warmth. Decent but not sure it deserves it’s reputation.
