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!

Canuckistani's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 20/20
Canuckistani (41) - Dundas, Ontario, - DEC 17, 2007
(5cL bottle from Barrie, Ontario) Strong, heavy beer, as an Eisbock is supposed to be. Pours a dark, cloudy, thick stream with a nice head that would probably have ended up nicely if I had tried to make it good in a proper glass (using a pilsener glass unfortunately). Head is white; lacing is reasonable but not as thick as it should be for a beer this strength, in my opinion. Alcohol is noticeable, but only to an aficionado of strong -bocks; makes itself known through the palate. Spicy citrus notes similar to a Belgian witbier are to be expected. Initial sweet flavour becomes increasingly salty as time goes by; finish is very long and astringent at first.

Cwieku666 (156) - 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).

BeardedAvenger (605) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Stewed fruit/berry aroma, with yeast and cloves. An opaque dark brown. Thin but creamy off-white head. Sweet at first. Then sourness develops and some bitterness. Matches the aroma, stewed fruit, berries. Heavy. Oily. A fizz of carbonation. Long, warming, finish. A great winter beer (ignoring that its spring now). Enjoyable and subtle.

Wolfbass (1143) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 22, 2017
Sinceramente, mi aspettavo un attimino meglio, invece la classicissima superbock teutonica, molto calorosa e burrosa, ma nasconde ottimamente il grado alcolico.

aardvark1 (12) - POLAND - APR 22, 2017
Bardzo wysoka i ładna piana jak na zawartość alkoholu. W zapachu bardzo winne i czerwone owoce, zwłaszcza wiśnie. Alkohol intensywnie rozgrzewa przełyk, trochę zbyt intensywnie, ujawniają się akcenty pszeniczne, ktrych nie wyczułem w zapachu

Du?o banana, gumy balonowej i estrw generalnie, alkohol kojarzy mi si? z jakim? s?odkim likierem. Po ogrzaniu lekki rozpuszczalnik. Ca?kiem dobre

Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a clear deep brown colour with a ruby tiny and a thin off white head. Aroma of plum, raisin, fig, some caramel, slight cola, a little chocolate, a hint of alcohol, subtle smoke and spice. Taste of plum, raisin, fig, some caramel, slight cola, a little chocolate, a hint of toasted malts, subtle alcohol and spice. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A long, sweet, warming, caramel and fruity finish. Malty, fruity and very complex. Sweet but the alcohol gives it a bitter bite and subtle crispness. A big, boozy beer.
