COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double down with this imperial spelt beer that features a generous amount of dinkel (spelt) malt in place of the traditional wheat malt. The result features aromas of bubblegum, banana, clove, citrus, and a slight spiciness. Smooth, full bodied and drinkable, Doppel Dinkel Bock will make the Bavarian in you proud!

Looked like a really good beer, only Deschutes beer I wouldn’t buy again.

Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small off white head that settled into a thin film. The aroma and flavor have big banana character, caramel, some dark fruits, slightly nutty, clove, bubble gum, interesting that this seems light with the 10.7% alcohol, this is on the sweet side and I’m glad the wife helped me finish it off.

reebtogi (4815) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits, citrus and banana with some hints of chocolate and grass. Taste is a citrus and grassy hop bitterness with a dark fruit, banana and light chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is an impressive brew for the style and although it is darker than I expected, it may even be better because of this. Recommended.

superspak (3406) - Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 6/17/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, apple, lemon, orange, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, light herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, apple, lemon, orange, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, light herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, apple, lemon, orange, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with an awesome malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice weizen bock style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
