Until the 1940s, Schneider Aventinus was shipped throughout Bavaria on trains lacking temperature control. In wintertime, water in the beer would freeze and separate from the alcohol. When this ice was extracted, what remained was a highly concentrated “Ice Bock.”
Tasting Notes: aromas of ripe plums give way to flavors of figs, clove and licorice. Full-bodied and warming, the perfect end to a robust meal.
