Schneider Weisse Aventinus Eisbock is a German Eisbock brewed by G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a snifter from a bottle.


The Eisbock pours a very dark and quite murky burgundy hue that’s topped by a finger-thick cap of cream-colored, bubbly froth that dissipates rapidly. The reduction leaves behind a ring of densely-packed bubbles around the glass.


The aroma goes through quite a transformation during the session. It’s sweet and boozy that begins somewhat vinous and then sweet with dark fruit, molasses. It’s mixed with a smokiness of burnt bread. And then as the beer warms, a hint of booze is detected.

Its feel is smooth and creamy and its sweetness coats the mouth. Its full body has some chew and it has moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly with appropriate warmth.
