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!

A lot of alchohol in aroma and it does not dissapoint at taste. Sweet taste and aftertaste. "Spezi" colour.

Ocena 01.02.2017, uzupelnienie profilu. Bardzo slodko, rodzynki, karmel, troche ciemnego pieczywa, zarowno w zapachu, jak i smaku. Szczerze mowiac, gdy wzialem pierwszego lyka, skrzywilem się od tej slodkosci, ale pozniej naprawdę przypadla mi do gustu. Piwo rozgrzewa przelyk, jest oleiste, geste. Barwa czarna, piana bezowa, srednioobfita, drobnopecherzykowa. Przyjemne piwo, adekwatne na chlodniejsze wieczory.

Mahagonifarben und blickdicht im Glas mit sehr schner cremiger Schaumkrone. Intensiver Pflaumengeschmack im Antrunk, hefig bananiger Krper mit einem Hauch von Marzipan und gebrannten Mandeln. Eine harmonische Bittere (Herkules) und Nelke im Abgang finalisieren dieses Geschmackserlebnis. Die 12% Alkohol sind sprbar, aber werden gekonnt versteckt.

Originally rated on 1/27/09. My first eisbock turned out really well. It poured a deep rootbeer brown body with lots of carbonation that gave it a big thick creamy head. Aroma of dark fruits like figs, plums, molasses, banana and hints of alcohol. Flavors was rich with the foremetioned fruits and a bit of spice, the alcohol was slightly noticeble but for 12% it was pretty smooth. Overall it was a good beer that drink again and would recommend.

ANZUShophunter (410) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2017
From bottle in shaker. Pours rusty red-brown with nice tan head and sweet aroma of malt and spice (clove?). Rich taste Id liken to plum pudding with noticable EtOH in the finish. A nice after-dinner beer.

hauxe (674) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Aged 1 year in the cellar. Pours brown with a thick, frothy head. Aroma is typical Weizen, but a bit musty, cherry undertones. Noticeable up front is a mildly tart red berry taste set over a sweet malty caramel base. Hints of chocolate and toffee. Finishes with more of the same, but with increasing warmth. Not among the most complex bocks Ive drunk, but it has a smooth, big-bodied rich consistency that makes it a pleasure to drink. Good stuff.

Cwieku666 (172) - Wrocław, POLAND - APR 26, 2017
Aromat: Słodki i intensywny zapach dojrzałych bananw z domieszką goździka, spodu od ciasta i rodzynek. W tle pałęta się też trochę gumy balonowej. Wygląd: Ciemnobrązowe, z bujną pianą po byku, ktra szybko redukuje się do niewielkiej obrączki. Smak: Całość jest słodka, wyklejająca, likierowata i lekko alkoholowa. Ponownie na pierwszym planie czuć dojrzałe banany. W tle mieszają się goździkowe, rodzynkowe i chlebowe posmaki. Wysycenie dość wysokie i razem z alkoholem lekko drapie w przełyku. Oglnie: Dobre degustacyjne piwo, znaczniej bardziej smakowało mi niż np. eisbock z Pinty (pewnie dlatego, że to jest koźlak pszeniczny, a nie zwykły).
