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°

Bottle: Dark cloudy ruby colour with a heavy white head. Aroma of ripe red fruits, strong wheat presence. Taste is complex, a mixture between a great wheat beer and a doppelbock without losing one or the other, alcohol is nicely hidden.

Very good. Easy to drink wonderful dark beer. Deep brown with a good head and medium carbonation. Full of flavor but not too heavy or sweet. Flavor is malts sticky caramel dried fruits plums licorice and some funky overripe fruit.

SkillsFactory (277) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2015
Tonaca di frate chiaro con riflessi giallastri, opalescente, schiuma ocra leggero poco persistente. Aroma di banana classica di lievito da weizen, cannella, banana candita, pesca sciroppata, lievissimi sentori di affumicato. Al palato banana, prugna e note tostate. Coda leggermente tostata ed erbacea con una elegante nota alcolica e fruttata sempre di banana. Corpo pieno, non molto carbonata. Molto buona ma di difficile interpretazione.

Franckg (649) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2015
Embouteillée 25/03/15, bue après plus de 7 mois. Robe ambrée et foncée très claire, filet de mousse et aucune dentelle. Arômes de sucre d’orge, banane, caramel, pain doré, baies confites et vanille. En bouche, sucre d’orge et banane surtout. Beaucoup de baies également, cassonade, crème brûlé et vanille. Un léger fond citronnée. Texture légère à moyenne et un beau corps mince mais persistant. Excellente

YigSvartka (238) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
Opaque ruby, purple, and brown hue with a minimally sized white head. Absolutely remarkable aroma with notes of plum, raisin, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, and dried berries. Incredibly complex gustation as well featuring biscuit, caramel, plum, raisin, banana, caramel, yeast, brown sugar, and toast with a creamy and lingering finish. Truly amazing.

Čapované v Beer Time Nitra. Tmavšia kalná farba, biela krémová pena, ovocná banánovo slivková aróma. Plná chut, stredná rezkost, krásne pšenicovo ovocné tóny. Paráda! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
