Sweet. Nutty. Lingering body. Excellent beer for its high malt character. Overall very well balanced.

For my 1000th review on rate beer, I found the notes to this beautiful brew. I poured this into a weizen glass. The appearance was a dark murky brown almost close to black, but it had a nice settling off white to white foamy head that allows a nice dissipation at a nice pace. The smell had a deep dark chocolate to banana maltiness invading my nose powerfully. The taste was allocated well between the chocolate malts and the banana esters to produce an indulgent dessert-like flavoring. There is a nice chocolate banana like aftertaste with a quick dry finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium on the body with a decent carbonation for its style and comes across well to me. Sessionability - maybe, but for me I tend to find this one more as a sipper and well worthy of a dessert in and of itself. Overall, hmmm...I think I said what I needed to say other than don’t pass this up if you see it. Such a wonderful brew!

Aroma is smoky, fruity, bread. Very dark ruby-brown when poured, with a thin, fading, light brown head. Taste is very malty, with bananas,caramel, coffee and citrus coming through, also a smokiness that is in no way acrid. Everything going on here is balanced perfectly. Palate is heavy, smoky sweet but not clingy. Excellent offering for this style, excellent price!

Poured from bottle. Dark brown offset with cream colored head. Aroma is fruit cake, toffee and raisins, washed in ash. Taste is buttered pumpernickel toast, molasses and candied fruits. Everything here points to the malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyed.

Bottle at Weihenstephaner Berlin am Hackeschen Markt. Slightly hazy amber-brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, and dried fruits. Medium sweetness, with bread, dark dried fruits and roasted malts, low-medium bitterness, very rich flavors, long duration and light alcoholic warmth. Medium-full bodied, creamy and smooth on palate. Great beer.

500 mml bottle tasted on 23/04/2104. Dark brown ruby colour. Aroma is strong and sweet with caramel and sugar notes. Nice head and almost perfect carbonation. Roasted malt and brown sugar on the taste. Pretty taste with some caramel aftertaste. Nice Doppelbock for a nice price. Next one please!
