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°

Into a weizen glass. Two finger of tan head on a deep brown body. Smells like bread, hay and a little licorice. Great balance of the bitter and sweet. Slightly more sweet with a touch of sour at the end. Bubbly texture, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky. Delicious.

Marcius (350) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Brown / copper color, cloudy liquid and huge head. Aroma of caramel, bread and banana. Taste is sweet, a bit bitter and strong alcohol. Excellent Weizen bock... love it!

DrNosha (141) - Baden Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2015
0,33l vom Fass im Bräuhaus. Ein Duft nach Rosinen, Dörrobst und Hefe. Dunkle, naturtrübe Kastanienfarbe mit wenig Schaum. Im Antrunk zuerst die Hefe, dann Malz und Dörrobst. Dickflüssig im Mund. Abgang süßlich. Extrem runder Bock. Die absolute Topbewertung verpasst es nur wegen des zu schwachen Dufts.

Dark amber colored with a brown and thick head. Aromas of caramel, matured frouits and malt. Perfect balanced and the high amount of alcohol is well implemented.

Desverger (4603) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle from Meny (Amager), Copenhagen - brown pour with big beige head. Aroma and taste is sweet and light roasty malty and wheaty, with some caramel and toffee notes, some dark fruit hits, yeasty, with some nice spices, drinks well. Good stuff.

Schlumpfhunter (17) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2015
Farbe richtig dunkel, dunkelbraun. Schaum gut. Nase: kaum, ein bisschen dunkle, röstig würzige weizenmischung. Geschmack: kräftig, kantig für ein weissbier. Vor allem im Abgang toll: richtig volle Ladung weizenmalz, anderersrits für 8.2% noch recht bekömmlich und runder Gechmack. Wenns glas leerer wird kommt noch eine kellernote mir rein, sonst eeher so karamell und Holz.butterscotch, banana, Sehr lecker.

lello4ever (294) - ITALY - SEP 23, 2015
Ambra scuro, con bella schiuma beige chiaro. Splendido aroma di caramello, malto, dark fruits. Sapore super, perfetto bilanciamento tra la weizen con la banana e la dolcezza e corpo di una bock. Molto beverina e corpo leggero nonostante l’alcol. Frizzante il giusto. Perfetta.

A far too easy to drink Doppelbock! Nice roasty and fruity aromas, perfectly balanced. Deep black with a nice head. Rather Sweet.

JBPortland (1257) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 9, 2015
500ml bottle pours dark, opaque in glass, violet red brown with light edge and two finger creamy head. Nose is corn flakes, raisin, dark fruit, bread, plum. Mouthfeel is super soft, creamy, delicate, perfect. Taste is a continuation of the nose, toasted corn flakes, dark bready grain, dark plum and grape, banana. So rich and full, complex but inviting. Finishes with a touch of sweetness, dark bready caramel and grape, banana corn flake, raisin, creamy, low bitterness, a hint of warming alcohol. Phenomenal.

haggis03a3 (174) - Orinda, California, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Dark, cloudy appearance with ample foam. Aroma is of cereal malt, chocolate, citrus. Flavor is very malty, a little sweet, sour, alcohol, and a little bitterness. It taste a lot like a dopplebock but has some wheat beer flavor in there too.
