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.

Bottle from Total Wine, on Fourth of July. Delicious. Just like the bottle promises: caramel, dried fruit, and toffee. Highly recommend.

dfearnley (1413) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle to stange glass Light cherry, coffee, some booze, and some earthiness. It’s a deep clear red with a thin ringed white head and it has small lazy effervescence. Taste is caramel, hints of coffee, lightly toasted malt, some currant, and a hint of blackberry and some moderate bitterness.

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Burnt sienna with a tiny of red. Fast diminishing head, very malty and intense toffee nose. Plums, intense roasted coffee beans in taste. Thin but long lingering...Wolfgang :)

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
Nice color--luscious brown. But no head. Huge caramel malt body. Sweet as all hell. Unbitter. Full body. Smooth. Nice alcohol to support the heaviness.

"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 (1816) - 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 (4522) - Fort Wayne, 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.
