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°

Creamy light brown head. Murky rust appearance. Taste is very complex: initial banana, clove, then alcohol cuts in. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Aftertaste has spices, and doppelbock qualities. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

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 (15) - 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 (291) - 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 (1251) - 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 (173) - 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.

GoufCustom (1157) - HONG KONG - SEP 6, 2015

500ml bottle bought at Berliner German Bar & Restaurant in Langham Place, Mongkok.

Looks: Translucent dark mahogany colour with a thick layer of dark brown yeast sediments; Two finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasted for 2 minutes; Small sticky lacing and quite active carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragment malt, with strong wheat and tartness, banana, vanilla, alcohol, strong caramel, toffee, sugar, cloves, strong spices, strong yeast, light lemon and grass.

Taste: Medium to strong sweet dark malt, with moderate roastyness, nuts, fairly strong wheaty tartness, strong plums, raisins, banana, strong caramel, fairly strong alcohol, very strong molasses, strong wood, light earth, cloves, strong spices, strong yeast, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass. What a bliss!

Body: Mid to light body. Thin but slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Complexity ahoy! The dark malty body stands up well in the presence of equally strong wheatyness. Very good roasty nutty woody characters. Boozy plums and dark fruits upstage the banana. Strong caramel and right-on strong sweetness. Spicy clove-y with fairly strong lemony hops to round. Way to go!

Hoppiness: Wood, strong spices, light lemon and grass in nose, and much stronger in taste. Bitterness is fairly notable for an abrupt, moderate astringent sweet finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Roasty, fruity and slightly boozy to mouth.

Comments: This is a very well-made and complex Weizenbock - malt and wheat are well presented, fruity esters are impressive, booze is strong but undisturbing, and woody, spicy lemony hops in abundance. This is the yardstick of the style, and I am in for a treat!

Gurthnar (3336) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle. Aroma bananas, a hint of smoke, burnt sugar, caramel, toasted. Hints of roast. Rich malty aroma. Clear deep brown colour, relatively stable head. Taste is suprisingly well balanced. Rather soft mouthfeel, alcohol mostly hidden and manifests only in slightly warming aftertaste. Bitterness in the background, rich malty flavours in the foreground. Banana, lightly spicy, light roasted, toasted, caramel, burnt sugar. Excellent.
