Found this in a bottle shop about a month ago and have had it in the fridge waiting patiently.
Opened it tonight with high expectations after reading reviews of it and the methods of brewing an Eisbock.
I must say it is a nice beer (especially for 12%), but not as balanced and smooth as I was expecting.

Here is a link to the beer

Are there better examples of an Eisbock available in Australia.
Has anyone had a go at brewing one ?

Beers,
Doc

PS: There was a great article in BYO an issue or two ago about brewing Eisbocks.

If you eis a beer, you concentrate more than alcohol. You also concentrate hop compounds present in the beer, the taste therefore will change in complex ways. A strongly hopped beer will come out tangy-sour!

It has sat in the fridge for a year.
Cracked it tonight, and it is an enjoyable beer.
It is quite viscous, very light coloured and not over carbonated. At 9.6% you don't really taste the alcochol. It is quite smooth and a nice winter drop.

Beers,
Doc

I'm with you on that Doc,

I had a bottle of the Aventinus Eisbock sit in the fridge for about six months. As I had had it before I knew it was a beer that you must be in the mood for, especially when you know you are going to be waking up the next morning with the flavour still in your mouth.
Still a fine drop anytime but far far superior when you are really crave that unique concentrated flavour hit. (if you get my drift)

Cheers
