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.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 (434) - 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 (9351) - 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

J_man (910) - Tustin, California, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Milk and dark chocolate aromas along with a fresh sea air component. Beautiful crystal clear copper/ruby color with a tan head. The chocolate shows up immediately with a light creaminess followed by a German lager component. A light sourness in the background offsets the candy sweetness in the body. There’s a nice alcohol bite near the end that enhances the taste. Finishes with milk chocolate on the tongue and a lasting lager flavor. Really delicious dopplebock!

hawthorne00 (3415) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle, 11C. Clear brown with a beige head that fades to less than a coat. Aroma of raisins and praline, subtle spices. Sweet and nutty with raisins and prunes. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Dries out discretely at the end where there’s a hint of spices and a bit more bitterness than you might expect. Although very sweet, it’s not all that rich - the sweetness is not justified by depth but rather dealt with by the finish. Kept thinking this isn’t quite what it purports to be but enjoying it anyway.
