4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz., bottling date 6/14/12. Aroma of rich, dark, sweet, toasted, bready malts, with notes of toffee and pumpernickel, along with mild raisin and chocolate in the background. Impressive clear deep dark reddish-brown color, with a lasting, creamy, tan head. Flavor profile is similarly full of dark, gently sweet and toasty malt, dried dark fruit, faint roast and cocoa, but features some mild banana and not inconsiderable hop bitterness, increasing towards the finish, that were not hinted at in the nose. Some mild earthiness and spice appear towards the end as well. Finely and actively carbonated palate with a suitably hefty feel and body. This is a great Doppel. I’m certainly glad I sat on this for a few months until it cooled off outside.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ruby brown with a beige head that's foamy and settles to a fine finger. Broad, finely-bubbled lacing. Aroma is rich roast malt, darkfruits, bread and booze. Taste tracks the nose very well, but amps up those flavors. Bread, roasted malts and caramel upfront and fig and alcohol in the rear. Even some bitterness in that backyard. An upper-echelon doppelbock. Make me a monk.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
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.
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.
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
