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°

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle: Smells like malt, banana and cola. Pours a hazy brown with a thick, tan head. Tastes very sweet with a little banana, a little bit of alcohol on the finish. Smooth feeling. Overall I thought the banana was a bit too strong.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 Cloudy true brown with a frothy initial head that lasts a little while and dissipates to a thin corona around the perimeter. The aroma contains some candy banana, grape juice and a touch of caramel. The flavour is very well balanced, but is let down a bit by the palate. The alcohol was well contained, but provides a nice kick when it finally becomes evident as I’m finishing off the half-litre bottle, kicking me like Stan Longinidis. The first time I rated this beer it was over-carbonated, but this time it is a bit undercarbonated. Somewhere in the middle is where this belongs - I will keep searching for the bottle that fits, and enjoy every drop along the way... (July 8 2006 - I think I found the one - perfect carbonation. It really makes a difference)

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2005
Bottle from Asda. Sweet, slightly chocolate-y brew. Pours brown, with a nice head. First off I didn’t quite get this one - it just seemed like a sweet, heady beer, with a warming finish. However as I drank, I got the excellent balance, enticing sippability and smoothness. I’m not massive on big sweet beers (give me hop instead please), but I did like this.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Dark and hazy with a foamy tannish head. Reminds me of a dunkel in aroma: fresh baked banana bread. Tastewise it’s something else. Sweet at first sip but not sticky: raisins and cherries, spices. Warms up nicely on the palate. Faint medicinal quality to the finish but otherwise very satisfying. A fantastic beer that keeps me coming back for more.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - SEP 7, 2005
Deep dark brown color, full body with chocolate malts, fruit and spicesw in the palate and a clovelike finish. victory makes a beer called moonglow which is very similar and cheaper in the states. bit sweeter

IndyF1 (19) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Dark Cinnamon Brown in color, decent head, aroma slight, carbonated. good. Doesn’t lose taste or go flat. Cost me $10 for a bottle, but it was worth it.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2006 Superlatives only. Phenolic banana/clove yeast aromas reminiscent of hefeweizen married to rich, chocolatey maltiness of Ayinger Celebrator (underappreciated BOCK KING). Tying these elements together is the rarely mentioned overall character of a Trappist ale, drinkability included. Stupefyingly drinkable and delicious at 8% ABV, this is maybe one of the 5 greatest beers ever brewed. None better.

All of the best of hefe’s stirred together with dark roasted malts. Toffee, dark fruits, caramel, chocolate together with wheat, grass, banana, clove, etc. So very nice.

Darkish Brown. It has a very unique aroma kind of piney. Thick consistency sweet with a unique bitterness in the middle with a chocolately malt.

Pours cloudy red/brown with initial beige head that diminishes quickly. Very nice malt flavors mix with caramel, spices, grass, dark fruits and some citrus fruit. Very Port-like. Good full body and lightly sour malt aftertaste. Very good beer. I even bought the pictured glass...pretty neat.
