Bottled in July 2013, poured into dimpled stein.
This beer has such a great, rich color-- a dem-like deep reddish bronze, deep deep coloring. Very beautiful to light. Thick beige head doesn't last, but makes a lovely topping to the beautiful glowing liquid. Smell is all German lager; bready malts, candied nuts, ripe fruits and an overall earthy hop aroma. Sweeter, but lots of complexity. No alcoholthat I noticed, just that rich doppelbock aroma. Wolfgang enters the palette on a slighty herbal note, with more hops upfront. A malty middle brings on lots of those fruits; plums, apples, I've seen some people mention raisins/licorise and I see where they could taste that. I like a sweeter, less hoppy doppelbock and Great Divide has seemingly tailor-made this for me. Lots of rich malty tastes, with a wonderful lager body. Lots of complexity but it is still easy to sip and savor.
A great go at probably my favorite style of beer. So yummy, masterfully brewed. Another home run from Great Divide. A whole bomber to myself, lucky me.

Served in a snifter.
Appearance: Clear red amber with slights haze from the pour. Off-white head maybe 1/3" with a hard pour and light bubbles to its frame.
Smell: Very light maple hop scent. Comes and goes.
Taste: Can you say awesome? Very good relaxing bitterness offset with a bit of sweetness to it. Has maple syrup likeness to it that is very addicting and perfect for this weather we're having.
Mouth: Medium body, feels light with averse at best stickiness.
Overall: i haven't read a review yet for this beer but I can see the reviews being a over the place. Definitely more of a warm weather beer, really doesn't need tweaking and honestly I would be glad to buy another bottle. Salud.
