Schneider Aventinus Eisbock - 12% ABV
Typically the Aventinus in recommended as an Autumn brew but this fatty may be more suited for wintertime imbibing. The smell is of dark fruits, cloves and bananas from the yeasts, sugar and the ethers of the considerable alcolhol content. Not much in the way of carbonation and the color is a dark brown. You will taste lots of malts and I was pleasantly surprised to get some hop dryness as well. Cloves, bananas, fig, caramel and the alcohol burn make for quite a complex flavor. Dandy brew indeed.
If you are visiting the Munich area try one of their brauhauses.
