Originally called "liquid bread," the Dopplebock style guided monks through periods of penitent fasting. Wolfgang has heavenly notes of caramel, dark fruit, and toffee balanced by a subtle hop character. While its revered history evokes and appreciation of austerity and sacrifice, this Dopplebock is a rich luxury - no repentance required.

BigHoss (172) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2013
From a 1 pint, 6 FL.OZ bottle. Color is a brown amber with medium light brown head that disparates quickly. I smell sweetness, caramel, yeast, alcohol and flowers. Taste all the same with a brown sugar and resins. Very flavorful and complex.

JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 3, 2016
Pours a umber color with a smaller, but stable head of beige bubbles. Aromas of grains, mild silage and dark fruit. Dark caramel, pale grains and hints of burnt sugar in the flavors. Just a hint of bitterness in the finish and into the linger. Hints of alcohol. Bock flavors without much complexity. 6/12

Bottle from Total Wine, on Fourth of July. Delicious. Just like the bottle promises: caramel, dried fruit, and toffee. Highly recommend.

dfearnley (2379) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle to stange glass Light cherry, coffee, some booze, and some earthiness. It’s a deep clear red with a thin ringed white head and it has small lazy effervescence. Taste is caramel, hints of coffee, lightly toasted malt, some currant, and a hint of blackberry and some moderate bitterness.

Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, bread, dark fruit, and toffee. Flavor was quite sweet with caramel, toffee, dark bread, dark fruit and raisins.

Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
courtesy of Antonio Rey - cloudy dark brown beer with a persistent beige foam; malty and toffeish aroma with notes of figs and cookies; sweet and full-bodied, velvety palate, chocolatey, malty and caramelish aftertaste

YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Burnt sienna with a tiny of red. Fast diminishing head, very malty and intense toffee nose. Plums, intense roasted coffee beans in taste. Thin but long lingering...Wolfgang :)

pivo (2689) - GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
Nice color--luscious brown. But no head. Huge caramel malt body. Sweet as all hell. Unbitter. Full body. Smooth. Nice alcohol to support the heaviness.

"Super nice malty aroma and flavor. Breadline, yes, but it is also distinctly Great Divide. They have a common theme with their malty stuff that I absolutely love, though strict traditionalists may cringe. If you like Hibernation, you’d like this."

Fatehunter (2640) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a cloudy brown colored body. The aroma is dry hay, caramel and grain. The taste starts off with a mild lemon bitter and quickly moves to caramel and malty sweetness that carries through to the end. The finish is long and sweet. The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation. A solid drink.

hotstuff (5278) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Rated on 7-10-2012 (Draft at Dash-In - Fort Wayne, IN) This beer has a small creamy smooth beige head with a short retention, transparent reddish brown body, no lacing observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty and rich. The flavor is caramel malt, roasty, toffee, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and has a lingering roasty aftertaste that is not offensive. This beer is worth trying. More please!
