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.

Vignale (1980) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
Flaska från SB drucken på ölföreningens julöl 2013. En ljus relativt stiltypisk dubbelbock. Mycket söta smaker. Sirap, karamell, toffee, torkad frukt. En lätt beska med ett liten läkerol classic touch. Aningen för söt och spritig. Hade mått bra av ett år i källaren.

A great representation of this style. I love this brewery and yet to have a beer that is bad.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Appearance: Liquid plum and raisins with garnet glints along the sides. A khaki head fades with a few arcs of lace before setting into a full thick blanket. Swirls thick and with more lace.
Nose: Melba and pumpernickel toast with brittle chocolates and dark fruit stones on top. Chewy meaty sweet plums and raisins in the middle. Light treacle and toffee along the sides. Chocolate graham crackers and cinnamon sprinkles.
Palate: Whole loaves of pumpernickel and wheat breads soaked with plums, raisins, and prunes. Tart tannic leather finish of stones and red wine soaked leather with a nip of cayenne in the back. Sweet toffee and treacle coat the sides along with weaving in and out of the other flavors. Grapes and figs up front.
Final Thoughts: Another delicious beer from Great Divide Brewing. As far as doppelbocks go, Wolfgang is a winner and would make any German proud. A seasonal offering, be sure to grab a couple bottles when you see it on the shelf.

gyllenbock (4400) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear mahogany with a medium head. A lot of malt both in the aroma and taste. Also toffee, dried fruit, brown sugar and notes of syrup. Almost a full body on this one, the finish was a bit sticky.

Abrakarl (279) - SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Was expecting more of this brew from Great Divide. They usually make excellent beer. At least its unusual. Fudge and malty taste and aroma. Will not buy it again.
