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.

NYE bottle share at Proof. Pours a deep reddish amber brown with a decent amount of light tan head. Collar holds really well. Aroma is caramel, some medium roasted malt, and a little bit of dark fruits. Taste is very earthy, some caramel. Very low carbonation and medium-high body.

"Super nice malty aroma and flavor. Breadline, yes, but it is also distinctly Great Divide. They have a common theme with their malty stuff that I absolutely love, though strict traditionalists may cringe. If you like Hibernation, you’d like this."

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a cloudy brown colored body. The aroma is dry hay, caramel and grain. The taste starts off with a mild lemon bitter and quickly moves to caramel and malty sweetness that carries through to the end. The finish is long and sweet. The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation. A solid drink.

hotstuff (4275) - Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Rated on 7-10-2012 (Draft at Dash-In - Fort Wayne, IN) This beer has a small creamy smooth beige head with a short retention, transparent reddish brown body, no lacing observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty and rich. The flavor is caramel malt, roasty, toffee, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and has a lingering roasty aftertaste that is not offensive. This beer is worth trying. More please!

Usually not a big fan of the style, this was pretty good. Malt forward with caramel and bread. The flavor was caramel and bread too with a nice balance. Very easy going down.

tnkw01 (1185) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Really great beer. Dark amber in color with a nice head. Aroma is fruit bread and roasted grains. Taste is a wonderful complex flavor with a sweet fruit cake up front and a suprising hoppy finish.

zoucrew102 (616) - - JUL 5, 2014
Bomber bottled about this day last year. Subtle dark fruit aroma with caramel and some toffee. Pours caramel colored with a thin light brown head and excellent lacing. Great dark fruit, caramel and toffee malt flavors to start with a very lively, malty mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with all of the flavors mentioned lingering on the palate long after the sip is finished. Nice doppelbock.

sudsmeister (65) - Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bomber bottled exactly one year ago today. Served at about 50 degrees in a pint glass. Pours a clear brandy hue with moderate carbonation. Fine thick head with moderate lacing. Delicious maltiness and slight hop presence. Alcohol is well hidden. This is the best American doppelbock I have tried and find it better than some German ones.

Right on the money doppelbock, malty and mildly sweet. Dark amber/brown body, aroma is sweet malt, molasses. Nice creamy head. Taste is also mostly malt, more subdued than the aroma, but right on target for the style.
