COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex with dark malt flavors that are complemented by esters of banana and clove-like characteristics found in any good Weizen Doppelbock. Traditionally, there was an ordinance in Germany that reserved this style for the sole consumption of the royal family; now they are for everyone!

Hazy brown with a small beige head. Aroma is of malt, cocoa, light banana, clove and toffee. Taste is of malt, booze, chocolate, banana, and a hint of roasted malts in the finish. One of their better beers IMO. This one is solid.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
22oz bottle. Deep brown pour with ring of tan head. Aromas of chocolate, banana, and clove. Flavors of nuts, more clove, and chocolate covered banana. Reminds me of the original banana stand on Balboa Island. Surprisingly good brew from Rahr.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bomber from Secret Santa 2011 (KAggie97; thanks man!). Pours dark and murky, brownish red, with a small short-lived tan head. Aromas of cocoa, chocolate-covered banana, and banana bread; I love the banana esters present here. The flavor is banana bread, some yeast, and mildly funky notes, as well as sweet malty undertones. Solid stuff. Thanks Santa! [907]

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a thick mud brown with a nice off-white head. Nose is chocolate pudding, cocoa powder, molasses-infused dark chocolate, and sweetened roasted nuts. Flavor is vinuous coffee and caramel, with a light cherry chocolate finish that brings a light, pleasant mesquite smoke essence. Lingering mouthfeel. Nice beer. Not as much molasses as a typical dopple bock but to me, thatís a good thing.
