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.

UncleKorm (748) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at brewery poured a clear coke colored amber w/ thin frothy head mostly diminishing and good lacing. Aroma is bread grains and caramel malts with hints of berries. Taste is a medium sweetness raisin, prune, caramel with a hint of hop & light roast bitterness in the back of the finish. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. This is a good sipping beer with bold flavor.

Bottle. Red chestnut, offwhite lace. Roasted, berries, caramel, citric leafy hops. Medium body, fruity sweetness, mellow creaminess. Feels a bit sweet and green, gets cloying after a little while. doesn’t quite tick all the boxes for a clean doppelbock

Cybercat (3230) - Georgia, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Aroma definitely gets your attention - strong and malty with a caramel overtone and notes of spice and chocolate plus an earthy hint. Pours a translucent chocolate brown, close to mahogany, with a thick and fairly persistent tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Flavor does not quite equal the promise of the aroma, but is still quite good - malty, bready, subtle notes of caramel, cloves and chocolate. Smooth texture has good body and fizz, and leaves a malty, woody, slightly chocolaty finish. Get this goat!
