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.

From bomber. Nice rich malt aroma, raisin, plum, brown sugar and a wee bit of alcohol. Dark coppery amber clear with thin beige head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and alcoholic warming. Starts sweet and rich, double decoction, raisin, caramel, brown sugar. Lasting sweet after. Nice doppelbock with some barley wine quality.

Pours a bright, ruby color with a slim, tan head. Strong caramel and toffee notes. Very nice. Smooth taste with some smoked caramel and toffee notes. Dark fruit with some malty presence as well. Not overpowering, but very, very good.

Mycket smakrik, fin rödbrun färg. En aning söt. En öl som ska upplevas i måttliga mängder.

StefanSD (2136) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a murky dark brown color with a medium beige head that soon fades to a fine film. The aroma is mild with caramel, toffee and brown sugar. The taste, like the aroma, is a hodgepodge of dark malts, caramel, toffee and bitter hazelnuts. The palate is a bit thinner than I prefer and the carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Tasty stuff.

mikeyo1 (210) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours clear dark copper with a beige head. Nose is sweet with a deep caramel and toffee aroma nicely blended with nuttyness, dark fruits and some vinous notes, plus spices, vanilla and wood. Big mouth feel, soft low carbonation. Long lasting sweet taste of caramel, red fruits, marzipan, dark bread. Raisins and wood in the finish, notes of milk chocolate. Medium well integrated bitterness. I believe this one will become even better with some more aging.

Lilja (1637) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen julen 2013. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, torkad frukt, marsipan, jäst, russin och chokladtoner. Tydlig beska. En aning spritig och hade tjänat på att lagras något år men redan nu finns här fina smaker att åtnjuta.
