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°

Super huge bubbly head. Drown pour. Definate hops scent with some caramel and bitter fruit, maybe some sour pear. Mixed taste, a lot of berry and bitter malts. Lingering aftertaste. Pretty pleasant.

WOW. Smells like a hefeweizen, bananas, cloves with slight hints of malt. Tastes amazingly refreshing for a beer so dark and high in ABV. Alcohol is nonexistent in taste. Has a crisp finish. I’m impressed.

500 mL bottle. Rich, smooth mouthfeel. Soothes the throat like honey. Also has some honey in the flavor, which plays with the alcohol nicely. Nutty maltiness throughout. Surprisingly, some tart sourness in the back, evoking cherries, grapes and cranberries. Clove is certainly in there as well. This is a good beer out of the bottle, but it really explodes on tap. Unfortunately, this review is just of the bottle.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle brewed in 2001. Pours a hazy orange rust color with a super fizzy head. A very fruity aroma, cherry and cloves are coming to mind as well as a little alcohol. The taste is sweet and fruity as well...getting the same cherry/clove comination as well as some mild alcohol flavor. This is a very carbonated beer with, again, a mild alocohol burn in a couple spots with a very dry finnish. It’s pretty light all the way across the tounge and comes out pretty refreshing if a bit too carbonated.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2006 Draught (7-4-7-3-15=3.6) – Fresh fruity nose with lots of Banana in it, later it reveals deeper spicy malt notes (not really any bock character in the nose); It has a super fresh body with some fill to it and an incredible sparkle (champagne-like); The bock character appears in a very long finish together with the classic acidity of the weizen beer. Somehow a strange beer, not typically bock neither a typically weizen. Bottle – Brown unclear with huge white head that falls fast; Clove, banana, raisins, bock character in a quite big nose; Very well balanced body with some acidity and a huge carbonation; Exploding finish, huge, chewy because of complexity, not because it is super thick, is it long too. Great beer with lots of character, better then the draught version.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Deep brown-red colour with a thick white head. The aroma is really complex, there is spices, clove, apple, banana, alcohol... It is full bodied, taste is very complex too, with spices, clove, banana and caramel, really malty. Excellent beer overall. The 8% of alcohol is well hidden.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Sampled from bottle provided by dickinsonbeer. Poured a deeper reddish/brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of bananas, cloves, wheat and some citrus. Newer bottle tried next to a ’99 vintage. The ’99 was oxidized and quite boring while the newer one rocked.
