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!

Strykzone (4930) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft at Ciceros. Some red in the color and it is hazy and cool looking. Just all kinds of sweet fruit here. Some alcohol and an interesting base. A little bit hot but now that I see the ABV it is now wonder. Good stuff.

StefanSD (2130) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
650ml bottle. Hazy brown pour with a small off-white head that has fair retention. The aroma is fruity with caramel apples, bananas, pears and peaches. The taste, like the aroma, is very forward with the fruits: I get more caramel apples, bananas and pears. The palate is full and smooth and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and sweet. Overall: Very tasty stuff, definitely a bit off the beaten path beer wise.

crossovert (7387) - Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2014
650ml bottle. Red pour, quickly dissipating head. Smell is banana and clove, dark fruits, dark malt, woah this is a weizenbock, not a doppelbock. Flavor is sweet and sherry-like, heavy booze, dark fruits banana. Noticeable spelt character. Just too sweet, boozy and large. This is abrasively boozy, anybody who doesn’t think so must be drowning in black tuesday and side pocket malt liquor. Would think a German brewery being involved would mak eit a bit more restrained and pleasant but this is probably their biggest most extreme brew to date. Why is this getting rated so high? Has anyone had Aventinus, that just blows this thing completely out of the water.

Aroma: Touch sour cherry, green banana, roasty grain and caramel, Flavor: Roasty caramel, sour cherry, bubble gum (mid-palate only), banana, sweet malt, and more sour cherry on a long finish as well as a bready character.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber from Wegman’s. Pours turbid ruby with minimal off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, vinous fruit, hops, banana,mild butyric acid. Tastes dense and caramelly, with some hops, earthy molasses notes, hops,banana, and some vinyls. This one is a bit rough around the edges. Ah, hell, this one is rougher around the edges than a shark’s skin petted in the wrong direction.

mcberko (6409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy burgundy with a tiny head. Aroma brings out dark fruits and rich toffee. Flavour is along the same lines, with toffee and rich dark fruits, with a complex profile. Very elegant and deep, with a finish of light alcohol. Excellent stuff.

At Kaiser Tiger. Malty with dried fruit flavors. A lot of banana and clove like a hefeweizen which was OK but sometimes out of place. Otherwise good. Serving: tap

Had this on draft at a local event where Deschutes and Seventh Son celebrated homebrewing. The beer pours a beautiful mahogany with thin off-white head that lasts only a minute or two. The aroma is a mix of cloves, banana, malt, sweetness, and subtle spice. The flavor is much the same. It’s sweet, intensely malty, with some fruit and spice thrown in. Almost like a cross between a Belgian beer and a Hefeweizen. Absolutely delicious and my favorite Deschutes beer by far. I hope they make it a part of their regular line-up someday.
