COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlucky 13? If anything, 13 has been a lucky number and year for us! Here is our version of a Weizen Doppelbock, a very rarely brewed style marrying the complexities of two great German traditions, Weiss and Doppelbock. The aroma is dominated by fruity and spicy esters produced by the German Weiss yeast strain with a dry drinkability from the wheat malt. The flavor and color are dominated by the unique specialty grains that produce the Doppelbocks flavors of fresh baked bread, toffee and cocoa, and a dark-ruby red hue. Since goats have traditionally adorned Bock labels, we chose a Rocky Mountain Goat for this Rocky Mountain Bock. Peace to all and follow your dreams! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, malted wheat, imported German specialty grains and hops, and one unique German yeast.

blipp (5884) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2010
Bottle, probably around 4 years old at this point. Pours deep deep reddish brown with a thin head. Sweet dark fruits and banana in the aroma, with a hint of spices and a light sherry-like oxidation. The flavor also shows a little bit of oxidation, but overall, this has held up well for a 4 year-old beer, and I don’t mind a little oxidation in older beers like this. Some dark fruity sweetness, toasted bread, light chocolate notes, and a hint of booze. Nice, I bet this was really good at about 1 year.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2010
22oz bomber with a Rocky Mountain Goat on it. Color was dark brown with a tan head when poured into my weizen glass. The smell was a little banana and cloves. The taste was also slightly banana with some bread and caramel coming into play. Nice beer but I am unfamiliar with the style. Alcohol was very well hidden.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Had on tap at Jackie O’s Anniversary Party. Was actually given this beer for free. That always makes it better, no? I love them sweet and malty so this one was a keeper. Sweety flavors of vanilla, brown sugar and toast. Slight hop finish. Loved it.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Poured a very dark brown almost black with an oily appearance. Nose is sweet with a hint of the abv with some malts. Flavor follows the nose. Big and full with a nice bite to it. Sweet but not cloying with some licorice notes. A dessert weisen? Pretty tasty

NosirIwont (1939) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a beige/light brown head. Sweet, malty, dark fruit aroma. A bit cloying. Flavour is a delicate blend of sweet dark fruits, subdued hops and a remote roasted note. Liquorice finish with slight wine-like notes and a bit of alcohol thrown in. Lingering grassy/apple note. A nice beer, even if I found these types a bit on the heavy side. 18-10-09.

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Poured near black with a slight red tinge and a thin light brown head. Aroma has a strong alcohol sent with some smokey malt characters. Flavor also has a bit of a harsh alcohol flavor that overwhelms the malty flavor. It may be past its peak at this point.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Almost stout like in appearance, nearly opaque dark brown to black with tan head. Nose is typical weizenbock - dark malts, bananna fruit, bread. On the palate is a big caramal to roasted malt sweetness followed by hefty alcohol warmth. Finish is long and alcoholic. Definitely a high % alcohol bock beer.
