Schneider Aventinus Eisbock 11.2oz bottle, both 08' #11765 and 09' #34132 vintages served into 5oz snifters.
This brew pours a dark cloudy maroon (Yes I know..) color with a thin beige head that doesn't stick around for long, settles into a thin film.
Smells of alcohol soaked fruits, such as plums, raisins, figs, and other assorted darker fruits.
The 09' is very fruity, tasting very closely with the nose. While on the other hand the 08' is moderately fruity with almost no alcohol detected. I guess the extra year really worked wonders on that part.
Mouthfeel is slick and oily, 09' was highly carbed while the 08' was somewhat subtle. Both have a impressive feel.
Drinkability is lowered due to high abv.
Overall I always love this beer and have had it on several occasions. I'm a big fan of the regular Aventinus so this is right up my alley. If you want a desert sipper, or something to brag about in front of your BMC loving friends, take a few of these home. Just be careful, they go down way to easy and will easily get you hurt LOL! Cheers!

A: Dark maple syrup brown, cloudy, a finger of light beige head, opaque so can’t see any carbonation.
S: Very weizen like, dark fruits like dates and figs, ripe bananas, floral, black pepper, ripe banana peels, a slight fermented fruit.
T: Big weizen flavours, dark fruit, dates and figs, ripe bananas, tannic, sweet, big alcohol flavours, little bitterness. Brown sugar.
M: Thick, weighty syrupy body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation.
O: My first in this style. A strong beer that’s well done and a sipper, but very drinkable. Complex good flavours, reminiscent of a weizen.
