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°

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2003 The aroma does something to my brain that I can't really describe. It's appearance was its only weakness, I think. Little head, quickly disappeared. Other than that, this beer is spectacular. Plenty of hefe and plenty of bock. A perfect marriage. Nice and strong.

(re-rate) Slight hazy brown/red. Moderate to high carbonation. Insane aroma of cloves, banana, spices, wheat, malt and others. Creamy mouthfeel, medium to thick bodied, palate bombarded with flavors of cloves, banana, chocolate,dark fruits, green apples, bubble gum and more. Complex as hell. Finish is sweet and clovey. Alcohol is masked wonderfully. This is simply world class.

This is a very good beer. Somewhat sweeter than I expected but very drinkable. I will be coming back to this again.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - SEP 22, 2002
Hazy, dark brown, minimal head. Fruity, malty, spicy, yeasty aroma. Flavor is fruity/malty/spicy with definite notes of banana and raisin, with a moderately strong alcohol aftertaste. A bit sweeet for my taste, although there is enough hop presence to prevent excessive sweetness. Those who enjoy brandies, Belgians and barleywines will appreciate this beer more than I do.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2002
Heavenly sweet estery aroma of malt and brandied fruits. Hazy brown color with wispy light head. Malt and fruit wave hits right away, with hops and carbonated bite close in-tow. The warm burn that kicks in during the finish reminds one that this sweet elixer also packs a punch! Outstanding mouthfeel--great malty substance with mild compensating bite that gives buoyancy. This is wonderful stuff, a worthy choice for my 200th review!

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2003 Special release 1999: Fruitiness has subsided,big time malt sweetness and breadiness.Thicker than fresh versions.Ages like a champ. Old rating: Cloudy,brown,with a mid sized soapy head. Bursting aromas of banana,clove,wheat,and lemon zest.Palate is soft but barely lacking.Might be because it is too cold.Flavors also clovey,bananas,sweet and thick malts.Finish is very yeasty(bubblegum)flavored.Too cold to start with but got much better as it warmed.I hate buying beer cold.
