COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish. The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.

Oldest wheat doppelbock of Bavaria. Since 1907. 18.5°

Excellent in a bottle, very rich with a clove-like banana-ish tang. Huge head. Excellent overall balance. Excellent in a bottle (and even better if allowed to age for 6 months), somewhat lesser in quality in tap at least here (not as complex of flavors)

Dark and very deceptive. A lot of beers of this strength hit you head on.This doeesn’t-what you first taste is a complex smooth very slightly chocolate flavour.The alcohol follows. There are traces of wheat but they dont dominate. A very interesting beer,

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 A truly fantastic brew, wonderfully complex both on the nose and also on the palate, can’t start to describe the array of flavours..lovely. This obviously is a favourite with raters and I can’t say anything that hasn’t been said before. Asda £2

On tap @ Flying Pie pizza in Boise. Wow. That’s balanced complexity. Dark brown hue with a big head and nice lacing. Great Bock. Intense.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Thiis beer made me a believer in the combination of the terms "chocolate" and "beer." The smoothest brush of chocolate as an undercoating with a delightful aftertaste of cloves and fruit. A must try.

Bottle. Pours a nice, dark, burnt-orange with a large, bubbly, white head. Aromas of prunes, cloves, fruitbasket, and a bit of yeast. Good doppelbock density and feel. Flavors of cloves, other autumnal spices, and bitter fruits, with a rich, spicy finish. There is ust a little bit of alcohol burn if I take a large enough sip. As the aftertaste fades, it reminds me of orange seeds.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Pours dark, murky brown with a large, bright, billowy white head. Some lacing. Aroma dominated by cloves, with hints of toffee, chocolate, and phenols. Flavor starts out like a fine doppelbock, ends on an overpowering burst of cloves. Chocolate and plum in the aftertaste. Good, but I expected more--If only it would fix appliances and door jambs.

Pours a muddy brown. Smells of clove and yeast. Full of spice on the tongue. Cloves and banana are very evident. Some malts thown in, maybe some toffee notes as well. Nice finishing bite as well with all the carbonation going on. No way this is 8%.

Gus (29) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Very dark with a carmal color. Somewhat of a thick, bubbly tan brown head. Very fruity, no hop aroma, followed by a clove spice smell. Taste is spicy with a wheat flavor, with bannanas and other possible fruits. Moderate fizzy carbonation with a mininal bite going dwon. The high alcohol was not noticed at all. Very smooth drinkability after the first sip. This an excellent beer. I will continue to buy this and drink again and again.
