4/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours an amber brown with a small, creamy, off-white head that leaves little lacing

Smells of cherries, grapes, prunes, mild vinegar, meat and alcohol.

In the taste the alcohol is very well masked - and grapes, prunes, vinegar, meat, biscuits, and bitter herbs are well integrated.

Creamy - but not thick - mouthfeel with pleasantly tight carbonation.

Very drinkable for over 10% alc.

This is a very pleasant beer: complex if also - somehow - not a revelation. (466 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Color: pours light golden brown. sits a translucent dark amber

Smell: powerful melanoidins and bready malt followed by strong notes of dark fruit all sitting on a good wheat foundation.

Taste: rich combination of melanoidins, dark fruit, vanilla, wheat flavor and a hint of chocolate. very low hop bitterness. finish is slightly sweet and bready with a hint of alcohol which doesnt linger

Mouthfeel: full-medium body with medium carbonation. very rich and creamy

Notes: very delicious beer. complex and rich in flavor with a decent amount of alcohol to boot. great beer for a cool evening (592 characters)

A- A slightly murky deep orange-amber liquid with a thin bone white head.

S- Apple juice, apple cider, slightly funky, and some alcohol.

T- Same as the aroma. The alcohol is ever so slightly warming, but is not harsh. Sweet and dry.

M- Crisp, clean, dry, and smooth.

D- A unique offering that drinks nicely, especially for the ABV. (335 characters)

Poured off the tap a nice creamy head. Dark brown and slightly cloudy. Sipping through the lace the beer gives off a sweet smell and taste.

It has a lasting nutty, sweet biscuit flavor. It is creamy like a dopplebock. Finishes with nice remnants of these flavors. leaves nice lace down. Very smooth mouthfeel and deadly for an 11% beer.

Cheers. (348 characters)

Draft sample at MBG Winterfest 2009.

Poured cleard dark brown color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate spicy roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration.

Solid drinkable brew. (371 characters)

This is a Weizen Dopplebock. Had it tonight on-tap at Bocktown...and surprised this isn't in the database yet. Poured into a snifter.

A- Body is a hazy, somewhat cloudy transparent mahogany color. Served with a nice 1 finger white creamy head that has great retention. Lacing left all the way down the glass.

S- Chocolate malt, sweet bready yeast, phenols, and a hint of caramel and nuttiness.

T- Much like the smell but more pronounced. Upfront is a balance of malt presence between chocolate, caramel and nutty. There is a hefty sweet, bready yeast backbone. There is a bit of astringency to the finish...but nothing over the top as the flavors intensify. What is left to linger is an alcohol heat and a sweet bready yeast.

M- Low to medium carbonation and a nice medium body that is heavy is bready yeast and astringency. The astringency is kept in check and is not over the top in any way but is definitely a component of the body.

D- This is a very good beer and probably the best from this brewery that I have tried. I've had a few other "weizen dopplebocks" and this is probably the best of the ones I have sampled. This one is also a very big beer at 10.9%...the ABV is detectable but drinks more like a 8-9% beer. (1,227 characters)
