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.

Lilja (1685) - 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.

Ferris (4494) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle - Nutty, dark bread with some caramel and dark fruit. Dark caramel with a beige rich head. Lots of dark malts and bread, with a sweet raisin finish. Nice.

Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is fresh baked bread, dark fruit and sweet malt. Thick bread mouth feel with a rich sweetness from the malt. Dark fruit and some raisin. Wife: 3.9

Little bitter for my liking but last sips better than the first. Pleasing to the eye. Minimal amount of foam. I’d drink it again.

Theydon_Bois (9110) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland Saturday Session 2 - 01/03/14. Lightly hazed dark amber/chestnut brown with a good sized beige covering that thins to spottage. Nose is toffee, brown sugars, dark fruit, light booze, spice rack. Taste comprises dark toffee, musty fruit mash, brown sugars, bitter smacks, light booze. Medium + bodiment, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close. I thought this was a little boring, failed to deliver any great flavour for the ABV and likely the poorest offering I’ve had from GD.

Beachmaster (145) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark copper/brown, with a moderate, fairly long lasting tan head. Fair lacing. Nose is medium roast malt and a hint of sweet bread. Taste is like slightly sweet sark wheat bread. Delicious. Medium carbonation and a long-lasting finish.

Fin (7538) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Jan at Craigs doing a Chris O tasting, Edingburgh (ta for the beer Jan) Friday 14th March Dark brown this does have that signature Great Divide taste I cannot say for sure or define what that is, but when I tasted this and was told it was Great Divide other beers from their cannon came straight into my mind and there were distinct taste similarities. Some chocolate, soft and smooth roastiness, leaves a back bite, a furriness on roof of mouth. Its nice. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
