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°

dark cloudy amber with a really active big bubbly white head. Nos is very wheaty with a hint of rust and malt. I didnt especially like the wheat so that sucked for me. Taste is very wheaty (didnt care for too much)and not so much malt. In end there is a hint of rust and suggar.

The aroma seduces, 'Drink me, drink me!' My nose gives in. The appearance is regal, nobel, royal, imperial. The flavour is quite full-bodied, complex with yeastiness and citrusy fruitiness simultaneously [gleichzeitig] and though 8% ABV, is well-masked and does not taste overly alcoholic. The palate is delightful and really a pleasure to have around as company. I do believe this was the last beer I had in Hawai'i... I miss that place...I miss the good beer selection...

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2004
Bottle, 04.09.04. Pours a creamy, caramel brown. Deep. Medium head that refuses to quit its fine, even froth. Absolutely reeks of yummy yeasts...citrus, apple, fresh berries, brown sugar, and dough. The beer is light on the palate with a nicely complimentary alcohol note. Flavors of spiced gumdrops, light cocoa, candied fruits. Mouthfeel is full and there is plenty of carbonation. A complex, deep, thoroughly delicious beer. Truly fantastic and one of the best bargains around.

gsteph (323) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2004
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 (15914) - 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.
