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°

Pours deep hazy brown with a lively tan head. Aroma is dark and fruity and spicy. You just KNOW it’s going to be a good beer. Taste is just an amazing sweetness. No bitterness here at all. Just an amazing dark fruity sweetness with mild spice and coffee-like flavor towards the end. I could drink this forever. Please stay on my tongue. Palate is nice and creamy. Goes down so smoothly. I think this could be a good starting point for new craft beer drinkers as well as being a benchmark not just of this style, but for beers in general. The first time I had a sip of this beer, it blew my mind. Literally.

Brown colour with sediments, big head, smells banana with a hint of melon. Taste is fruit, banana, melon, yeast, some caramel notes. Finish citrus yeast, some alcool shows but in a pleasant way. Not my kind of beer quite now maybe?

Deu (668) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy, muddy brown. Nose is all spice cake. More spiced banana bread on first sip. Finish of banana (but not too strong), not too sweet and you don’t feel the alcohol. Not really my thing but very nice for it’s kind.

Fluxing (57) - POLAND - APR 19, 2014
Recenzja z 11.03.2014. Kolor brunatny, dosc mocne jednolite zmetnienie. Piana bardzo wysoka, bardzo powoli opada, zostawia gruba warstwe i lekko oblepia szklo. W zapachu banany, gozdziki, sporo slodu i karmelu, suszone owoce - rodzynki i sliwki, lekkie cytrusy, alkohol niewyczuwalny, bardzo intensywne melanoidyny. W smaku slodkie, pelne, intensywnie bananowe i gozdzikowe, lekko kwasne, lekkie suszone owoce i minimalne cytrusy. Goryczka niska, ale wyczuwalna, aromat trawiasty, wzmacniana przez piekaco-rozgrzewajacy alkohol. Wysycenie niskie w kierunku sredniego.

Flaska från systembolaget. Tjockgrumlig mellanbrun färg med liten smutsvit skumkrona. Härligt fruktig doft. Mjuka äpplen och banan. Dessa två återfinns även i smaken. Får även aningar av diverse kryddor. Len och mjuk i munnen på ett kraftfullt sätt

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Fox and Hound, Aabenraa (as Tap 6 Unser Aventinus). Slightly unclear brown body with a nice, creamy off-white head. Aroma has caramel malt, dry fruit, slightly spicy and just a tiny hint of banana. Flavor is medium sweet, soft malt, light caramel, hint of toast, dry fruit, flowers and some spicy yeast. It just feels extremely well balanced. Fine body and good aftertaste. A true classic.

Bottle at Goro. Aroma: Floral, slight sour notes, citrus, herb, and banana as it warmed. Flavor: Roasty, nutty bready and banana. Comment: complex and impressive. This easily beat out the Korbinian. Great stuff.
