Tasted On: 07-07-2012
Freshness: 2011 Vintage
Packaging: 330 ml brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Aventinus Weizen glass
Purchased: Single from Grace's, Nashville

A: Huge tan head of 5+ fingers sits on this semi-hazy, mahogany colored beer. A fair amount of lacing and head retention are present.

S: Rich and dark fruits are in the aromas, with caramel malt notes and some woody aspects. I get faint reminders of the typical weizen yeast smells of banana and clove. Delightful to smell.

T: Wow, this is a powerful tasting beer, full strength and of alcohol, like a bourbon. Savory, spicy, and sweet with fruit flavors such as raisin and plum.

M: Carbonation is in the medium to high range, with a full, creamy body. The finish is rich and full of alcohol warming. Aftertastes are of molasses and caramel, with a spicy kick to boot.

O: A very strong and complex beer, with reminders of both a weizen-bock and beer aged in spirit barrels. Highly recommend! (959 characters)

- very fast dissipating head with a black hue to the beer, not the classic German look
-best smelling lager style beer i have every put to my nose, the alot of dark fruit notes with some German yeast in the mix, quite a bit to sit and pick through
-Hands down the best lager style beer i have had, great dark fruit flavors like a quad but with the crispness of a lager, underlying wheat body very smooth
-for a beer that has so many notes it may feel overpowering but it is one of the smoother beers i have had, the flavor goes in and it all ties together
-One of the best beers i have had i will remember this for time to come and drink many more (648 characters)

4.74/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Very dark brown, almost completely opaque. 1 finger of head which reduced pretty quickly.

Smell - The odour immediately seems like a strong dunkelweizen. Lots of sweet banana, malts, spices and other fruits.

Taste - Is this an Eisbock, or is it some kind of freaky Uber Double Imperial Dunkelweizen? The latter seems more accurate to me, although it is amazing that a beer like this can be brewed following the modern equivalent of the Reinheitsgebot. This certainly isn't lacking in dark wheat beer characters, with loads of spices, dark fruits, and even significant banana flavours. Very well balanced, and the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden.

Mouthfeel - Pretty heavy, a little too cloying.

Drinkability - Dangerously good for 12% ABV.

Overall - This is one of the best smelling and tasting beers in the world, but unfortunately it cannot be called the best beer in the world due to minor weaknesses in other areas. Still, anyone who likes wheat beers and beers over 8% ABV absolutely must try Aventinus Weizen Eisbock. It is absolutely amazing. (1,070 characters)

I purchased this at Downtown Wine & Spirits. I let this warm and served it in one of my New Belgium glasses.

Appearance: Pours a hazy brown with a one-finger creamy beige head that thins to a quarter-inch layer.

Smell: Deep and rich malty and fruity aromas: bananas, dates, caramel and alcohol.

Taste: Fruity and malty. Flavors of banana, dark fruit, raisins, dates and caramel. The finish is spicy and warming alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Thick and rich, full-bodied with tingly carbonation.

Drinkability: Delicious and drinkable, despite the alcohol.

Overall: This is my first expereince with the Eisbock style. Amazingly rich and flavorful. (652 characters)

Pours a burgundy color with a brown hue, minimal head, there is carb action pushing particles to the top (probably yeast).

Has a toffee/licorice malt aroma.

Mod/heavy sweet/acidic/bitter and licorice/molasses malt taste with a crisp orange/grapefruit hops flavor.

Full bodied, syrupy texture, soft almost flat carbonation, and a smooth astringent finish.

Very drinkable for the style, well balanced, and has unique licorice/molasses twist to the smooth aftertaste. (476 characters)

11.2 oz bottle poured into a gobblet, with an etched bottle number on the back side

A: Pours a deep dark hazy brown, then turns almost completly black is all the contents are emptied into the glass, a one inch head of pallid tan and tight and tiny bubbles gathers loosly on top of the glass, as you sit drinking this the beer begins to look better (if not more menacing) as it sits in the glass, daring you to take another sip, I was actually suprised to see any head at all on such a huge beer so damn.

S: Quite a bit of dusty yeast and dark fruits, plums and raisins rolled in some severly sugary and thick molases, it really gives no hints as to what is in store.

T/MF: This is a big big beer, but on the first sip it hides this fact, it begins rather meekly with a yeast and sugar opening not unlike a quadruppel, but then after a bit dark raisin and plum and other such fruits blend together and work to build a slick and delicioulsy hot alocholic heat in the mouth. Near the end the dusty yeast that opened comes bubbling back with avengence and brings a decent hop slickness along to boot, but really this beer is more about the interplay between the yeast and malts, which I have to say lends to is one of the most amazing mouthfeels in any beer I have ever tasted.

D: This beer does not hide what it is, a big old ice beer, but I don't care, it is still incredibly drinkable and fun to drink as well, just having this beer do its work in your mouth is worth the price of admission. (1,494 characters)

Bottle #2002 so I am assuming a 2002 Vintage

I had received this one in a trade a while back and had been holding onto it for a good long time,waiting for the right time to crack this beauty. Well lately I have given up waiting for a special
time to crack a beer and instead I decided to just go for it and have at some of the deepest reaches of my cellar. Last night it was time for this. Pulled this one out and served it right at cellar temp and poured into a tall, footed pilsner glass.

Appearance - The pour was very nice indeed. First off, there were tons and tons of floaties in this one. Thick clumps of yeast are literally everywhere bouncing up and down inside the glass. Other then those though there was some really nice clarity to it, letting you knows most had been concentrated into the clumps. The color on this was outstanding; a rich deep, caramel colored orange was presented
in front of me. Hints of dark ruby, or purple as well, really a very rich, and dark color. A nice
three inch high head of off white colored foam then took over the top and gently settled down into a
thin layer before finally staying at about a half an inch throughout the rest of the session. Copious
amounts of side glass lace were present as well.

Smell - The aroma was equally as rich and sweet as I thought it would be. No hint of any kind of
alcohol in this one at all, which was really shocking. A smooth aroma could be picked up, very earthy,
with deep, sweet malt tones coming through strong, and early. Hints of caramel, and strong dark fruit
were also easily picked up in here. Really nice blend, touches of plums and raisins being most
notable. Slight hint of grass way in the back, and at times almost a honey like sweetness to it.

Taste - The flavor was the best I could have hoped for in this style, it was simply top notch all the
way. A super smooth, creamy palate was explored buy the delicate malt tones that came over your tongue
in waves. Nothing harsh about the flavor here at all, everything was so well blended and smooth that
it was remarkable that this was 12%abv. Big notes of caramel and earthy malts opened the show right
away and got things off to a really nice start. Bready malts stealing the show on this one, until the
nice tones of dark yeast start to come through. Lots of plums and raisins were then becoming even more
evident, and the sweetness of honey coming out very nicely. This was the smoothest flavor I could have
imagined, just absolutely wonderful in richness and complexity.

Mouthfeel - This also had to be the creamiest beer I have ever had in my life. The texture was just
beautiful. Not too heavy and not too light, it was a work of art at times. Such nice carbonation, it
had that effect of just coating everything that it touched, I was really floored by how good this was
and how well it came off.

Drinkability - Now here it was as good as it gets. You are talking about something that was over 12%
ABV and you could not even tell. I would have thought this was a session ale, and I actually almost
drank it as such. Unbelievably smooth, the texture and flavor were remarkable. I would have gone for
another one in a second if I had one. It was simply superb.

Overall I have to say this is one of the finest drinks of any kind that I have ever had. I really do
not have a bad word to say about it. Everything just went really perfectly. One of the classic
examples of the style, I cannot wait to be able to try this one again, it really is that good! (3,505 characters)

The bottle is long-necked 33 cl brown. The purple label got som silver writings. Looks neet and clean.

A: Murky brown with hits of red. Head is thick and creamy off-white and really large. It stays for a long time and leaves some lacings after dissipation.

S: Rich sweet malt with lots of dark dried fruits; cherries and plums. The wheat gives it a banana-smell. A bit flowery.

T: Sweet malt in great harmony with wheat. Dark dried fruits as well as banana. Very well balanced.

M: Full body and mild carbonation. A warm feeling from the alcohol (obviously). Aftertaste is long and sweet, well balanced.

D: This is a really great beer. I put some bottles in my cellar - I think it will be even better in a couple of years. (731 characters)

Bottle 10053, 2002, poured with vigor into my prized Aventinus glass. I love Eisbocks.

Pours a deep amber-red-brown with a rather fizzy tan head that dissipates after 5 minutes or so. Very well-packed yeast on the bottom that releases with a schwirl. The smell is spectacular - like sweet clovey licorice, very distant banana esters, and whiffs of alcohol. Very appetizing.

Starts with a banana-clove-chocolate flavor followed immediately by a extraordinarily round alcohol/dunkelweizen/dark fruit (prunes/raisins/sugarplum) body. Some oiliness on the tongue, alongside a slightly prickly mouthfeel. Somewhat sweeter that the standard Aventinus, but the sweetness is well controlled. The finish is very warm, satisfying, with hints of green apple waaay in the background joining in with the aforementioned flavors. The alcoholic presence increases as it warms. The yeast slurry has a more bitter flavor - add judicously if that's your preference, otherwise it makes a fine chaser. An outstanding brew to sit, sip, enjoy - ausgezeichnet, Herr Drexler!

Aside on Eisbocks - there's a certain smooth, round alcoholic character that these seem to have - the Heavyweight Lun-Icy at AOBF 1 had a similar character. The alcohol, while stronger, seems to blend better with the rest of the brew. Did I mention that I love Eisbocks?

I need more of this - to age, just to see how the character changes. It'll be interesting to follow this one up with one of my stash of five year old bottles of "regular" Aventinus. Amazing what you find when you clean out your beer cellar. (1,574 characters)

Presentation: in the bottle 2007 # 01619

Pours a rich caramel cider color, swirled the yeast with the last couple ounces, it was flocculated though, due do the age, into little hard clumps.

Nice head quickly dissipates, good carbonation with little flecks of yeast.

Slight scent of alcohol, banana and cloves and tasty caramel

Strong notes of caramel, banana, and clove, even some prune and raisin and a rich buttery smoothness, very warming, halfway through and the cobwebs have been dusted off my brain. Reminiscent of a warm banana bread with butter rum.

you can taste the alcohol in the finish but it holds a backseat to all the complementary flavors

This was my first beer of the day and I am left with a warm, relaxed euphoria. This is why I love beer.

Due to the alcohol this is no session beer, two of these will have you talkin funny. (853 characters)

An almost purple brown with a gentle head. Not much retention. Good carbonation with lots of floaty bits.

Smell is rich and sweet with banana, raisins, figs, and cloves. Dark wheat malts.

What can I say about the taste? Superb caramel wheat malt, banana, cloves, dark fruits and superbly hidden, faint alcohol.

A creamy feel with a supple silkiness. Lightly chewy.

So easy to drink it ought to be illegal.

Dark brown with an offwhite head. Little lacing but a lasting head.

Smells like alcoholic fruit. Dark ripe fruit with spicy hops.

Tastes a bit phenolic with a spicy fruit start, sliding into chocolate and rum. Slight breadyness that finishes smooth.

Alcohol doesn't burn and makes this very drinkable, but 12% is a bit much for more than 1. (349 characters)

As my beer taste refines, I like to try new things. Enter Aventinus, as recommended by some friends. Pours with more carbonation, but settles out quickly. The nose is a bit yeasty, but very pleasant. The taste is full and immediate. The cloudy chocolate brown presentation some find a bit imposing, but after a taste, I find myself willing to want another. The taste is smooth and exotic. So many flavors come across the palate that I find my taster confused, but very pleased. It is difficult to pinpoint the flavors, but raisins and a bit of beechwood come to mind as I recall my dad breaking a branch to allow me to smell and taste the unique beechwood flavor. This is one German brew that comes up tasting like the monks of Belgium had a hand in the recipe. This brew is outstanding! It has some sweetness about it, but not like the Christmas brews. It is certainly worth a taste, especially if you enjoy the Belgian brews. (927 characters)

This beer was the first I had on a walking tour of brauhaus's in Munich (reviewed from notes). This brew poured into a pint glass had a wonderful deep purple color with a great tan head that didn't seem to go away. The smell was extremely floral with hints of wheat, yeast, deep malt characteristics. The taste was similar to the smell with a very floral start that melted into a yeast and clove filled finish. The beer was thick, but not too much. Only negative would be I could only drink the one being at the beginning of the tour and all. (542 characters)

Bottle number 020227, no date. (Note that the bottle has a new label which more prominently displays Weizen Eisbock than the one pictured.)

Appearance: Cloudy, with a deep tawny color and a decent head. Once it dissipates, there is no lacing.

Smell: What a wonderful nose to his beer! I could smell it all night. Dark fruits, caramel, rum and a touch of banana. You can smell the alcohol and tell this will be one powerful, special brew.

Taste: First comes the strong malt flavors; tastes almost like a port. Then, some hops sneak in just in time to be overwhelmed by the warming effects of the alcohol. What sticks around as you feel the warmth drip down your gullet is the lovely, complex malty taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied; not much carbonation

Drinkability: Be carefull with this one as the alcohol is high. Take it slowly and just enjoy every second. (871 characters)

Bottle # 003640, re-reviewed 5/7/12, bottle #015817.

Pours out to a murky dark brown, forming an large-marge, poofy light tan head with excellent retention and average lacing. Flittering bits of particulate and flocculant yeast settle to the bottom and rise again. Swamp soup. Thick layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. Carbonation is moderately strong, ~3 carbs. Aroma is bursting with fruit....raw apple cider, black cherries, a whallop of cloves, bananas in bushels, yeast. Mmmmm, mmmm. Mouthfeel is effervescent which hides it's dense body with a slick, non-cloying finish despite it's alcohol strength and body. Meshuggenah. Taste is like Aventinus with 'roid-rage. Amygdala overload. Firm alcohol presence is Mixolocrian...Sticky sweet malts in 3/2 hemiola cacophony over 5/4 silk chanteuse. Smoldering finish tills the cows come home. Toffee, caramel, banana, clove, raisins, dates, brandy...a sublime punch in the face. Rzzz! Weasels ripped my nads! I think me likes...me likes! The cat's pyjamamamas. (1,017 characters)

I poured this into a Sam Adams ``perfect pint'' glass. It had a beautiful deep reddish-brown color and a massive, chunky head that stuck around forever. The nose was pungent and fruity and promised bananas and breakfast cereal.

The flavor... oh my lord! There's a wonderful bready maltiness that's accompanied by an acidic, wheaty, champagne-like twang. Every sip brings different flavors to mind. Raisins, cloves, lemon, biscuits, bananas, and a wonderful, refreshing sour apple spiciness from what seems to be a perfect addition of hops. The mouthfeel is nice and firm and the high carbonation of this beer seems to stimulate your tastebuds with every mouthfull.

This beer is truly unique. I don't believe I've ever had anything like it. It lacks the malty complexity of Ayinger Celebrator, but the high carbonation and acidic fruitiness adds a different kind of complexity alltogether. A marvelous drinking experience. One of the very best beers I have reviewed to date. (975 characters)

Color is a dark redish brown with a one finger head that dissipates quickly. Nose is ripe Asian pear. Feel is very rich. Taste is a little boozy, touch of sweetness, and then a big malty finish. An outstanding beer. Pour slowly to minimize sediment in your glass. (263 characters)

33cl bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a brilliantly clear dark amber color with three fingers of dense white head. Retention is superb and lacing is great.

S: Bananas and prunes stick out the most in the aroma with strong breadiness and light gingerbread. Makes me want to take a sip.

T: Strong breadiness starts off with raisins, bananas, nutmeg, and walnuts. This reminds me of a banana nut bread with raisins. So complex, so well balanced. This is unbelievably good. I wouldn't change a thing.

M: Quite thick with creamy carbonation.

O: Amazing. My taste description says it all. Banana nut bread with raisins. The aroma is very good, but the flavor is basically perfect. (677 characters)

Presentation: 11.2oz brown bottle. Bottle No: 03495 (2001). You can tell that whatever is inside this bottle special. I served my sample in an official 0,5l Aventinus Weizen glass.

Appearance: A deep, cloudy brown beer with amber edges and a massive off-white foam head -- good retention. There is yeast in the bottle, hence its being a cloudy brew. Personally, I recommend that you pour 2/3 into the glass then take the remainder and swirl up that yummy yeast and pour it into the glass too.

Smell: Phenolic/clovey with musty aromas, soft grains.

Taste: Smooth, creamy and beyond malty on first contact. Malt body is full, thick, syrupy with treacle, honey, coffee, buttery toffee, chocolate, rum and a unique tropical fruity quality way back on the palate. Clove flavours pop-up all over, and you can taste a bit of the wheat and its husky tannins. Alcohol is there, and warming. Things get a bit coarse for a moment as a raw hop flavour tries is hardest to break thru the malt. It fails. The malt wins, and as a result there's very little bitterness (touch of cheesy flavour and feel, but it's real of hidden). Finish is soft, with all sorts of wacky residuals on the palate.

Notes: This is one rich and robust beer with incredible depth and complexity. I love this beer. It's got a Plato of 28.7 or around a 1.117 specific gravity, which is very high. Hard to tell the alcohol content without knowing how it finished, but you can be assured that it's very high, especially given the freezing process of this beer -- said to be around 12-13%abv. This beer is a must for wheat beer and/or beer cellaring fans. Absolutely luscious.

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 theb rew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid, people were baffled by this stronger version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created.

Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster at the Schneider Brewery, decided to recreate this classic "mistake" in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later. Now it's brewed in limited qualities throughout the year. (2,293 characters)

Anticipation builds as the whipped meringue head settles back into the glass. This "King of the Weizens" pours up with a beautiful lacy tannish-white head that dissipates rather quickly due to the higher alcohol. Nice mahogany-reddish brown color with fine natural carbon bubbles. Extremely vinous with a very, spicy sweet nose reminisant of mince meat pie. A rich caramel/treacle maltiness carries through to the finish which is very distictive & clovelike. The bitterness is perfectly balanced against the candied plum sweetness. As the beer warms by the fireplace, the alcohol and ripe fruit aromas dance to the rim of the glass beckoning for a second whiff. Nice! This beer is very disceptive in its appearance and alcohol. It actually makes one believe that they're enjoying its smaller cousin Aventinus (8%ABV). Make no mistake, this Knight Aventinus carries a lance, sword and a morningstar! Buy, steal, hoard, and cellar all that you can find.

Look: Deep ruby/brown, slightly cloudy with a nice head that hung out for a while, yet left little lacing

Smell: Cloves, and dark fruit - raisins & prunes

Taste: Up Front: Alcohol bite, cloves, and other spices. Finish: Banana, raisin, clove, caramel, sweet malt - very complex

Mouthfeel: Medium body, and smooth. This is 12% abv??? I never would have guessed. Having said that, the carbonation is also higher than expected, but still on point

Drinkability: I am savoring every sip!!!

Overall Impression: This beer is essentially a concentrated version of Aventinus Weizenbock. The flavor is intense and the incredible finish just keep going and transforming. Seriously, I did not think it could get any better than their Weizenbock, but I stand corrected. Hey, sometimes it feels good to be wrong ;) (805 characters)
