Schneider Aventinus Eisbock matured for 15 months in Pinot Noir Barrels.

In 2010 Hans-Peter Drexler started a new project : maturing some of his finest beers in wine barrels. He enjoyed the expertise of brewmaster Jrme de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland who grew up in a wine producing family. Thus, they created delicious new beer aromes. Mein Eisbock Barrique welcomes you with an intense raspberry, cherry and vanilla aroma. A very rich and harmonious taste of chocolate, vanilla and berries will explode in your mouth leaving a lasting and pleasant after-taste reminding you of good red wine.
This beer is recommended with chocolate and red fruit dessert or a blue cheese. however, as it is so powerful that it can easily be enjoyed by its own. the 2014 version has matured for 2 years on Pinot Noir barrels

Seul (2) - Lokeren, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2017 does not count
2014 version, matured for 24 months on Pinot Noir barrels. First of all: this is one helluva underrated beer... But: if you dont appreciate wine, dont bother with this beer... Flat, lots of vanille, tanines, and a nice sour Pinot Noir touch, whilst the base beer is still there... Best drank in the dark as the colour isnt appealing at all...

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
- braun-schwarze Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen von sehr reifer Banane, Honig, Drrobst, Malz aber auch ein sehr stark wahrnehmbarer Alkoholgeruch - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist sehr lig, verbunden mit einem Kakaoaroma und einer durchdringenden Bananennote - danach erinnert das Ganze mehr an einen Medium Sherry mit einer leichten Rotweinnote als ein Bier - erst gegen Ende erscheint die Hopfenbitternis und etwas Weinbrand Fazit: Mehr Dessertwein denn Bier

Pour was reddish hue brown with zero head or lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and caramel and oak. Flavor the same with some faint red wine and vanilla. Mouthfeel totally flat and decent body but not sticky.

Thx! for sharing. Sampled bottled @ Borefts 2015. Day 2. Deep brown amber with no head. Light iron, syrupy, nicely oxidized, syrup, sherry, caramel, honey, brown sugar. Taste is sweet oily, wood, caramel, honey, brown sugar, fruit, caramel, rich, light spirit, red wine, syrup. Oily, warming, low carbonation. Much like the base beer, these really need age it seems, about perfect now.

(bottle, many thanks to alkoholikarin!) murky brown colour with no head. aroma of alcohol, coconut shavings and pickles, with a touch of vanilla, some oak, gently roasted wheat and nougat. flavour is mostly cranberries, caramel and coconut, rather tart, with some more pickles, sugar icing, alcohol and white chocolate in the finish. heavy-bodied with no carbonation.
