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!

This beer is everything the regular Aventinus is and more. It’s so much more intense than the regular 8.2% counterpart. The aroma gets you going...malty, caramel, toffee, chocolate, banana, slight bit of hops....mmmmmm... Very thick, fluffy head that looks like a Whoppers Malted milk ball. Raisin, prune, banana, chocolate...pretty much it tastes how it smells. The hops are overwhelmed by the flavor. Best dark(er) beer EVER.

Barwa soku ze sliwek. Bardzo ladna piana, drobna i gesta. W aromacie glównie sliwki i nuty chlebowe. W smaku dochodzi delikatna karmelowa slodycz, szlachetny alkohol delikatnie wyczuwalny, absolutnie to nie przeszkadza. Bardzo dobre piwo.

well this is delightful and meets our heightened expectations. It has a lovely plummy sour smell with a pleasant whiff of alcohol very present. The appearance is a rich mahogany purple that looks like a dark Belgian. The is a whizz bang punch of plums, sweet yeast, some malt, and an almost red wine like savory finish. It’ll make you nibble like a bunny. Very very good stuff, wish it wasn’t 6 bucks a bottle or I’d drink it all the time. Good for a pre Jackbox cook sesh with some Best Show after a 10 mile urban hike.

A boiling hot summer’s day probably is not the best weathe for this, but I wanted something rich to savor. The aroma is of dark, dried fruit and the taste too. Raisin is predominant. I can only imagine this as warming in winter. Two-thirds of a bottle is enough to make me quite drunk. First Eisbock and I want to try more.

Backlogi z kilku ostatnich tygodni - ciąg dalszy. Kran, 2016 rocznik. Znakomite połączenie bardzo intensywnych nut ciemnego pieczywa, suszonych śliwek. Gęste, ze świetnie ukrytym alko. Klasa.

Opaque brown with a thin beige ring of bubbles. Medium body with moderately high carbonation and warming alcohol.

Aroma: artichoke, toffee, pilsner malt, bready puding, caramel, creme brulee.

Taste: creme brulee with burnt sugar, fig and raisin, caramel, clean warm alcohol. Not as estery or phenolic as I expected being familiar with regular Aventinus.
