50 cl. Pours an abundant creamy and dense beige head, deep brown to black colour, showing some ruby reflexes. Smells toasted and dark malts, caramel, cocoa, bit of dark/dried fruit. Tastes super malty, crystal malts, caramel, raisins, chocolatey; extremly refined, smooth all malt sweetness, nearly no bitterness at all. Average carbonation, almost full bodied, but still quite very drinkable as in the best deutsch tradition. A really nice one !

Pours the color of Coca-Cola with a medium light tan head. Aroma is sweet malty grains and molasses. Taste is super smooth & creamy malts and mellow spices up throughout the palate with almost no aftertaste. Good!

Weihanstephan’s doesn’t get nearly the attention they deserve. They run a brewing university in Germany, for Chrissake’s. This beer isn’t as chocolatey as the Ayinger Doppelbock, but it’s solid, nonetheless. Nice nose, but would be nicer likely if fresh as opposed to purchased at Spec’s in Houston. Solid flavor. Beautifully dark with garnett highlights. "Starkbier" must be another type of Doppelbock.

(Bue sur place en fût): Biscuit moelleux anisé, caramélisé et empreint de mélasse et dattes. Sa buvabilité est plus que décente pour le genre.

To the ones (like me) that are not big fans of German beers and that think that the rauschbeers are the only ones that could be taken seriously, it’s a quite funny experience drinking a good and old Weihenstephaner. This has a red-brown crystal color and a well defined and mature taste. In the end, the lesson is quite simple: Don’t underestimate the Germans, they can do, of course, excellent beers like this one... ;)

Julie really likes it and gives it a 4. Andy isn't crazy about it. Rich and smooth not spicy or hoppy
