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°

This is my favorite at the present. Pours with a thick head and a rich, nut/clove aroma. The taste is full but not over bearing, a bit sweeter than most other beer this dark but not overly. It finishes smooth and pleasing.

ELPADRINO (70) - The Woodlands, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours a deep amber brown with a healthy half inch tan head. Aroma is apparent as I pour, which is inviting. Smell is sweet and peppery. It may sound weird, but my first reaction to the aroma is "beef jerky." The taste is rich and again, peppery. There is little too much carbonation going down, but the aftertaste is like a honey BBQ sauce with a hint of alcohol at the very end. Overall a good beer and probably would go excellent with some slow cooked ribs.

For Dortmunder. My first rating. Nose of Brett, malty wholemeal bread, Dried fruits, museli, faint sweet caramel notes. Body, rich full flavours yet far from cloying nice balance. Cleansing wheaten notes. Sweet front pallet malts complementing dry wheat finish in the late pallet. Nice warmth. Moderate fizz. Rocky yet diminishing head. Like this. Oh, slightly estery come farmyardy on the burp.

Bottle. This is simply wonderful. The carbonation is perfect and it has a nice flavor which has a complex array of fruity sweetness and spiciness that stays on your tongue for quite a while. The only downside is it can linger for a just a tad bit and there seems to be a bitter note in there some where.

Bottle in honour of Dortmunder. Found in Peckham’s. Sparkling dark ruby with rocky persistant head. Aroma of chocolate, bananas, apples, caramel. Sweet and wheaty in the mouth, with a warming sweet finish. Jolly good stuff.

Bottle: Deep ruby pour. Nice frothy head. Bubbly and crisp initially on the palate, but warms up nicely. Hint of fruit, finishes clean. Superb!

My first weizenbock, and it was worth the wait. The appearance wasn’t inspiring: cloudy, mud-coloured, with a small head, but the aroma and taste were full of good things. Fruity and sweet with plenty of yeast, this was a wonderful, warming alcoholic beer; easy to drink, utterly delicious.

Bottle. This one’s for ’dortmunder’. Pours a beautiful hazy deep red/brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweetish and yeasty and gets a vinous touch as it warms. Flavour is sweet and fruity with yeast and alcohol. My first weizenbock - it’s interesting to suddenly having a weizen with lots of alcohol. 01-11-05.

This beer left me with a sickly-sweet taste that I didn’t care for at all. The nose also gave off this same quality. At least it’s good and strong.
