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°

I like the extra kick. Sweet yet has a big of spice. The carbonation is a plus.

Looks great. Thick head. Curious aroma but cloves are prevelant. Wasn't impressed with first bottle. Did not care for it at all. Second bottle I was a little more open with my palate. Fruity and soft. Sweetness was good compliment to cloves. Good flavor. Complex and curious enough to warrant another purchase to completely figure out.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2004
Poured into a genuine Aventinus glass, the actively bubbly, beige head fills that big bubble that makes up the top half of the glass, softly crumbling down. Color, Clear, deep amber, high carbonation. Aroma: yeasty, spicey, cloves and bread, delicate and dreamy, soft and creamy. Rich, fruity taste, figs dance on the tongue, apples, white grapes, raisins, generous, arousing texture. This is perfect pleasure, the mouthfeel is gracious and the sweet, bright grapiness provides constant delight. There's a brief sourness, but it matches well with the flavor profile. Long finish, full bodied, ...a beautiful, beautiful brew.

Definitly the most unique and complex beer I have ever had. I rush of flavors hit your mouth. The raisen flavor comes out the most followed by coffe and chocolate. One of the best beers I have had.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
50 cl bottle, served in Aventinus glass. Appearance-wise, this is one of the most beautiful beers around, especially when served in the right glass: Deep, opaque reddish-brown; enormous, stable head that sticks around until the very end; massive carbonation visible all the way up the tall glass. It's almost - almost - a shame to drink a beer this fine-looking... Taste is highly complex, easily combining the freshness of a wheat beer w/ the depth and fullness of taste of a doppelbock. Exemplary. Luxurious mouthfeel and very good drinkability w/ the 8% abv. being well hidden. A unique and wonderful brew that's become one of my all-time favorites.

TBone (14160) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2004
UPDATED: APR 8, 2004 Bottled (BB 27.05.2004)
Dark hazy brown, like mud. Quickly vanishing brown head. Floating particles. Lots of CO2. Aroma has sweetness and some alcohol. Doublebock warm palate and weizen softness. Had to rerate this because this looks like not the best possible bottle. (5/3/5/3/10)
re-rate, bottled (BB 27.05.04)
Drinked from weizen glass. Murky, hazy brown. Vanishing off-white head. Aroma is sweet, prunes, alcohol bite. Taste is like hefeweizen beer with alcohol added: banana flavor typical to weizens but smooth sweetish palate missing and replaced by dobbelbockie strong malts. Alcoholic bitter and sour aftertaste. (7/3/7/3/13) Rating is average of two, looks like not much difference. Same BB of bottles anyway.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2005 \Spicy - maybe a bit too spicy - with a touch of bitterness and a mild but apparent aftertaste as well as a potent kick. There’s not much else that you need from a beer unless you’re chugging a dozen in a sitting. Luckily the LCBOs in my neighbourhood stock this fairly regularly. Tells me that I’m living in a good neighbourhood. RE-RATED 7/26/04 - My last three bottles (bought at different times) have disappointed. Seemed to be less flavourful and more carbonated. Nowhere near as satisfying as in the past. I doubt they’ve changed the recipe, so maybe they’re just shipping stale bottles to Ontario. Or, more likely, the LCBO is selling bottles that are past their prime. In any case, just don’t look forward to opening the majestic bottle like I used to.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Pours a hazy dark brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet and spicey. Brown sugar, clove, caramel, and chocolate on the tongue. Nice full and chewy mouthfeel. Lots of clove in the after taste. Good alcohol kick. A really nice beer.
