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°

500ml bottle conditioned. Pours a cloudy brown colour with a large white head which retains well. The aroma is sweet banana the flavour is sweet banana and sour at the same time with a lightly spicy finish which lasts. Very good beer.

Pours a medium dark ruby red color with a light tan head. The aroma is of sweet fruity bananas. The flavor is of sweet fruit. The body is medium with a banana aftertaste which is not my favorite. Overall it was okay.

Underdogs88 (119) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Banana upfront with notes of cloves and rich melanoidins. Appearance is brown with a slight haze. Flavor has a rich malt flavor with notes of cloves and bread. The beer is malt forward. Hop bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is full with medium high carbonation. Overall, it's a malty smooth tasting beer with notes of banana and cloves. An overall great tasting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shain (83) - ISRAEL - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Pours mostly clear dark brown with some yeast residue. A fine, dense, medium tall , beige head. Aroma of sweet jasmine, caramel, corn, floral. Mouth feel is creamy with a medium-thick body and gentle to medium carbonation. Tastes mostly sweet, but not too much, with very very light sourness and bitterness. Flavors of caramel, strong corn flavor, jasmine, bread, fresh ripe fruits, floral, clove, liquorice, grapes/berries, slight herbal-medicinal (in a good way) hops, not bitter, slight alcohol. No straight-up malt flavors. Ends not too sticky with sweet floral honey taste. Great flavor complexity, very nice drinking overall. Very sweet, yet not too sweet, thanks to the slight sourness and background hops.

Bottle. Nice aroma of banana and clove. Flavor is banana, dark fig, and prune. Finish is slightly bitter. Body is medium. Carbonation is fine and prickly. Not sure how I haven’t rated this one yet, but on the way home today I had a craving for this and so I bought it. Overall this is a well made affordable beer that I like, especially in the fall.

Baalzevuv (25) - - NOV 13, 2014
Barwa ciemnobursztynowa o jednolitym zmętnieniu, piana obfita, średniotrwała, głównie średniopęcherzykowa, lekko beżowa, lacingu brak. Zapach palonego słodu, gdzieś w tle karmel z lekką świeżością. Niezbyt intensywny. W smaku nie jest zanadto intensywne. Spodziewałem się czegoś totalnie mocniejszego, zwłaszcza biorąc pod uwagę alkohol i ekstrakt. Tutaj jest dość spokojnie, przyciszony klimat. Goryczka jest średnia, nie zalegająca. Bardzo pijalne. Piwo jest takie, jakie powinno być.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una dopllebock perfetta. Di colore ebano, presenta una schiuma cremosa persiste e fine di color nocciola. I primi odori che vengono fuori sono di banana, prugna e di tostato. il corpo è ben strutturato e i malti sono molto aromatici (cioccolato, tostato). Buona beveribilità grazie alla poco briosità, persistenza ottima

Excalibur123 (170) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 9, 2014
Vierte marrón oscuro anaranjado con media cabeza de espuma que perdura largo rato; en nariz aromas a caramelo, cerezas y uvas pasas, entrada suave y maltosa con notas ácidas y leve amargor, cuerpo ligero con carbónico medio-alto, siguen notas a malta tostada, pos gusto largo y algo picante, cerveza refrescante fácil de beber pero bastante alcohólica; no muy compleja y se hacen largos sus 50 cl.

Moravius (570) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) aus einer Getränke-Hoffmann-Filiale, Berlin (Abfülldatum: 13.02.14). - Sehr tiefes Kupferrot, trüb, üppige Schaumkrone. - In der Nase überreife Banane, etwas Zimt, im Hintergrund vielversprechende fruchtig-herbe Noten (Mango, Erdbeere). - Antrunk sahnig und füllig mit Banane, Birne, Zimt und Nelke aber auch komplexen fruchtig-säuerlichen, an Weihnachtsgewürz erinnernden Noten (Schwarze Johannisbeere, Orange, Muskatnuß), die die füllige dunkle Malzsüße in Schach halten. Mild rezent aber spritzig, weich und sahnig im Mund. Im Abgang nur milde fruchtige Herbe, leicht pfeffriger Hopfen. Der Alkohol bleibt vornehm im Hintergrund und macht sich erst einige Zeit nach dem Leeren des Glases in fieser Weise bemerkbar. - Komplexe aber „runde“, füllige aber nicht breite Verdichtung bester Weizenbieraromen. Ein Hochgenuß selbst für Biertrinker wie mich, die Weizenbier in der Regel meiden.
