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 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!

JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2013
12 oz from the Coop for about $5... enjoyed from my HotD goblet. Not much head at all ... deep amber brew. All sweet bananas and raisins ...a touch of pink bubblegum and cloves. Deceptively smooth for a brew with this much alcohol ... medium body and pretty explosive carbonation on the palate. Flavor is bananas and the expected bubblegum.. thick "raisin box essence" on the finish. Some caramel mid palate. Lingering spicy clove esters. Very good, but so rich it is only a 1-2/year indulgence.

Wolfbass (1141) - 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 (10) - 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

Towey1989 (2435) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2017
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.

Z: Banan, goździk, palony chleb, biszkopt, estry w stronę śliwki, przechodzące w wiśnie i intensywny alkohol. Bardziej w nalewkę niż ordynarny spiryt. S: Pełne, ciastko zbożowe, dalej chlebowo, słodko, śliwka finisz lekko podwędzany, likierowy. Finisz zostaje na dość długo.
