$2.99 from decicco supermarket, pelham ny
(Ive been on a dopplebock kick so I have been looking for this, oddly enough it is not easy to find around here although the other weihens products are plentiful)
brown euro bottle, medium brown hue to dark tones, off white head is decent, lacing is good but not too sticky, a clear film does stick up the glass sides from the alcohol. Solid looking, nothing to make your balls tingle.
a bit breadier than other dopplebocks, it covers the sweetness and alcohol tones a bit, some mild coffee notes, mildly roasted malts are very up front here, sometimes you can be in the mood for a straight up malty smelling euro lager... this fits the bill, period.
malty and creamy, the carbonation was more aggresive than I thought it would be, and it all ends in nice malt breadiness, not sweetness or uber sweetness (kudos), chewy caramel bread, the chewy part is both in flavor and texture, while I wouldn't call this "thick" it drinks thicker than it is. this really is all about the malts, the alcohol peeks through at times but mostly is subdued.
very tasty. I would prefer the Salvator over this (stronger coffee tones) but I wouldn't kick this bitch out of bed either. me likey.

The bottle is so us usual and beautiful, I had to try it. Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner, at a temperature between the fridge and room temp. Color is a crystal clear strawberry red with the slightest brown tinge when held up to intense light. Thin, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, with roasted malt and caramel sweetness, with mild floral hops. Flavor is again yeasty, roasted malt, toffee sweetness, with a slightly piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin, and a bit foamy. This is a style that I do not understand (doppelbock), so I am rating it just as an enjoyable brew and experience. On that basis, I will say it is a very good to outstanding lager, well worth sampling. And this one has a bear, not a goat on the label.
