COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally called "liquid bread," the Dopplebock style guided monks through periods of penitent fasting. Wolfgang has heavenly notes of caramel, dark fruit, and toffee balanced by a subtle hop character. While its revered history evokes and appreciation of austerity and sacrifice, this Dopplebock is a rich luxury - no repentance required.

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Aromatics start with heavy bread and yeast. Pours a solid caramel but no head. Taste is very malt heavy and has an "off" flavor. Palate is medium. Overall, pass.

Chuckaduck (670) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours a deep crimson color with a slick white-tan head. Smells like strawberry shortcake. Aroma is alcohol, fruity, bread, vanilla, sweet, toffee coconut (?). Really interesting. Taste is drier than expected, a little chalky, fruity, alcohol, solvent, a little bitter, wine-like. Thin lacing; nice smooth, creamy mouth feel. I would have liked this to taste more like it smelt (strawberry shortcake). But overall I was pleasantly surprised.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with tan head. Aroma has notes of caramel, toasted malt, some spiciness. Flavor is much the same with hints of brown sugar and sweet. Medium-heavy mouthfeel, medium carbonation.. Overall, not bad! I had this to celabrate the Cowboys crushing the eagles!

Pours a deep dark reddish brown color with a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly to a smattering of bubbles on top. The aroma is sweet with burnt sugars and light sweet dark fruits along with a bit of toffee that seems a bit out of place. Faint floral hop aroma provides little balance to the malty sweetness. The flavor is sweet with lots of caramel and brown sugar flavors and a bit of burnt sugar sweetness. Light prune flavor along with a weak coffee type melanoid thing going on. Medium body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet crisp mouthfeel. I find that so many American breweries try to replicate the dopplebock style and can’t seem to pull it off. This is a fine beer, but compared to some of the hallmarks of the style it just doesn’t compare. The smooth melanoid and rich dark dried fruits are lacking in this example.
