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!

Pours a deep amber, thin head, light beige. Rich caramel, plum sweet aroma, some raspberry in the aroma. Full mouthfeel, some barleywine qualities here, grapes, roasted toffee, caramel, but lots of deep sweetness to it, a tad boozy in the end.

Pours Amber with a thin beige head. Spicy sweet to the nose and the mouthfeel is similar. Tart and flavorful on the swallow with a pleasant lingering. The difference in the malt makes for a nice change of pace. Enjoyed it. Reminds me of a good whiskey, something to savor over a period of time.

22 oz bottle poured at a tasting. Best by 6/17/15. Oops. Did this keep fermenting in the bottle? Tastes even stronger than the already sturdy abv offering, and it’s hardly close. Caramel amber color. Comes off as a barleywine. Tomato juice barleywine? Wheat finish. Need to try a fresh bottle of this. I’ll actively seek one out if possible, and rerate. All things considered, pretty good.

Bomber to tulip. Rich malt and moderate spice. Hazy copper-brown with off white head. Flavor is banana and spice.

JaBier (6503) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear copper pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, booze and slight banana. Malty and caramelly flavor with lager yeast before a boozy and nutty finish.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Pours a beautiful caramel amber with a fizzy tan head of loose bubbles (aggressive pour). Would rate a five for appearance but, it’s flat looking. I know that’s true to style but... Aroma is a bit simple but still very nice. Tons of malt, some floral hops, and alcohol. Taste is near perfect balance but there’s some glue in there? Palate is nice as well but the slight stickiness adds to the sensation that you’ve been licking stamps. Of beers that I consider good; this is better than average. I wouldn’t need to drink it or try it again.

JK (5594) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Sampled at ABR 2015. Brown color, cloudy, just a little head. Lightly sweet aroma, some caramel. Some banana and wheat. Simple flavor, low carbonation, but what it has is good.

Bottle. Big sweet strawberry taste on the finish that ruined this one for me. Ok at first, but the sweet flavor built up very quickly.

Bottle. Dark ruby with little head. Very sweet with tons of dark fruit and a little clove. Rich and sticky. Alcohol is well integrated. Too sweet for me.
