In a pilsner glass the beer was a turbid orange/brown color with a small tan head. There was a little bit of lace.
A nice aroma of dark fruit and caramel.
Great taste. Lots of toffee. Raisins and plums. Very smooth.
A rich beer, very enjoyable.

22 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottled On: Well, it's regrettably illegible, though, I can make out 2012.
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-brown body with a wispy, sudsy layer of yellowed froth.
Smell: In the nose, a sizable pile of brown sugar, slight nuttiness, and toasted dark breadiness with the faintest hint of chocolate powder. Resounding fruitiness in the nose of candied dates and prunes. Even-handed dose of spicing. Some alcoholic wafts noted.
Taste: Fairly sweet upfront, with plenty of caramelized sugars, brown sugar, toasted (dark) bread crusts and some nutty, grainy hints. Very faint chocolate, molasses. As with the nose, there's a big 'pop' of fruitiness present. Herbal-toned, leafy hops, low bitterness. Wolfgang remains malty, fruity, and sweetish until the warming finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Slightly chewy, fluffy mouthfeel.
Overall: I liked it better than I thought I would. Worth a try.

Enjoyed a bomber at a BYOB in Phoenixville, PA on 3/13/13.
*Appears very nice in the glass. 5 oz pours to share the bottle. Darker golden color. Nice slight head, some bubbles, carbonation just right.
*Smells include: Some muffin/bread, semi sweet, malty but balanced.
*Taste is: toffee, dark candy, sweet but not too sweet, balanced, very unique taste.
*Mouthfeel is thicker than thin, creamy, low carbonation smoothness, no bite,
*Overall a very enjoyable DB. Need to sip it a bit, its true to it's style and slightly thick. "bread is a glass".

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/5/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear deep mahogany color with a nice 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, raisin, prune, molasses, toast, toffee, chocolate, dark bread, biscuit, nuttiness, and roasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of dark malty flavors with well balanced fruitiness. Taste of caramel, raisin, prune, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, chocolate, biscuit, nuttiness, and light roasted earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, dark fruit, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, biscuit, nuttiness, and light earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance and complexity of dark malty flavors with moderate fruitiness; and zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, slick, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent doppelbock! Great balance and complexity of malt flavors with moderate fruitiness; and extremely smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering; one of the better examples I have had in the style.
