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°

Brown. Light tan head. Commercial description is the most accurate I’ve read, although I’m not sure about the "compact" part. Easy drinking at 8%. I like the eizbock better, but this is very good, also.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 as amazed as i was the first time i tried this diamond from the boys over there at Schnider. beautiful ruby color, amazing thick head that lasts to the last sip. Give me a 30-pack of this stuff! Now. Update: 5 years ago, I really loved this stuff. Now, I hardly ever buy it or drink it. My palate has changed. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for this beer though.

a brownish red color w/ a tan small ubbled head very frothy some signs of carbonation. Big in your face aroma is spicy of cinamaon and nutmeg and yeast, maybe a little doughy Palate is light and creamy flavor is warming but not alcoholic tastes of wheat and fig and plum. Somee good stuff but a bit wheat to score higher in my ratings. Thanks to Blake for sharing this one.

1FastSTi (3343) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2006 Pours to a huge white head atop a hazy ruby/brown body that all but fully disapates. The aroma is strong. Yeasty, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, banana, clove. The flavor is cinnamon, banana, clove, yeast, wheat berries, banana bread. The flavor is well-blended. Sweet palate. Good carbonation and thickness. Damn this is good.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2005
Bottle from Bitter Virtue. (BBE 28/09/05 Drank 02/07/05). Ruby colour with initially large loose head rapidly diminishing. Nothing about this beer is overdone. The spice, fruit, yeast and malt elements are all well balanced. The alcohol makes itself felt towards the end of the beer and helps to balance out some of the sweetness. Quite a light beer for its strength and it left me thinking about whether I really liked it or not - I think I did but it wasn’t exceptional.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Very good, spicy nutty flavors. Slightly sweet finish. The bottle ended too soon on this one, it was very good. ABV not noticed at all.

From opening the bottle one could sense and smell that this was going to be a delight. The perfect pour, with a nice sized head, and a perfect amount of carbonation. The smell is very yeasty, with a scent of a darker stronger beer. The taste fills the mouth and the duration is fantastic. It finishes very well and leaves one desiring more. A fantastic beer.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Pours a clear brown-purple color with lots of carbonation and a decent amount of dark manilla head. Aroma is very sweet, yeasty, and spicy. I can definitely sense the banana smell everyone else talks about. Flavor is very sweet, almost too much so, with caramel malts and a warm alcohol, yeasty finish. Overall, I thought it was pretty decent, but I’ve had other doppelbocks I liked better.

shrubber85 (8750) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle. Strong banana, peach, dark malt aroma. Dark brown color with orange tints - cloudy with small head. Slightly sweet banana/peach and bread flavor with a mild astrigent finish. Smooth - hides its strength well. A great beer
