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°

DanielBrown (4381) - 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.

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.

99beerman (29) - Gardners, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2005
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.

notwoohoo (109) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2005
I could look at this beer all day long. Beautiful dark weizenbock with a bleached head. Aroma of cloves, a slight bit of bananas (in a good way as in german hefe), while the darker malts serve to set it off from a hefe.

jmbranum (3) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 30, 2005 does not count
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)
