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°

Very filling, classic example of style. Orange-peel and cloves, and great fruity malt/wheat flavours.

Deep reddish-brown color with diminishing head. Very complex aroma and flavors. Yeasty and bready, with cloves and vanilla aromas. Sweet, but balanced with full mouthfeel. Hints of roots or bark, like root beer (sassafras), or birch beer (birch bark). Also tasted anise, apples and bubblegum. As it warms up alcohol burn is present, though neutral as a flavor element. Finished clean.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2004 tasted in Toronto. Tasted in a dimpled mug. Pours a deep dark almost purple colour. Head is large, white, fluffy and lasting. Yeasty, malty aroma. Nice.....Flavour lets you know the alcohol levle is up there. After several sips, warms the lips. A nice strong bock,very deep and complex flavour. Slight taste of corriander.

Lovely hazy orange-auburn appearance, but the head was far too thick and poofy. I expected a full-bodied doppelbock malting, but a received a clean dose of wheaty ebullience instead--with a hint of woodiness in the atmosphere as well. Wheat is again the predominant character in taste though enough malt underneath stanches the appearance of any bitterness. Eventually, the alcohol breaks through in both aroma and taste. Overall, this is a great beer with good balance and the alcohol masked superbly.

The aroma is excellent. I was hit by a warm bread pudding, which is to say, nothing as simple or trite as ’raisins’ but a full panoply of such flavors, including nutmeg, raisins, cinnamon, apple cider, plus a caramel sauce and a little banana in the bread. Nice hazy brown color reminds me of the same kind of toffee syrup, only the sweetness is balanced. Some liquor-like flavors in the tasting, with a more wheat and yeast influenced finish. Perhaps some clove coming out more in the taste. Alcohol, like the sweetness, is understated. While likeable, I wouldn’t call this an easy-drinking beer--sometimes rather challenging. Perhaps, too, a bit more carbonation than is necessary.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2003 Contemplate, fellow apostles, the god-sent treacley-dipped bananas that overtake your palate…Venere the sagacity of its finely balanced fieldberries and dark rhum…With love and perspicacity, you may even observe lemon bubblegum amidst a spicy smoke…You are holding, dear beer pilgrims, a portal to the heart of pansophy…

It’s replaced Salvator as my favorite in this style. Truly an exceptional (if all too costly) beer.
