500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.99) drank of Christmas:
Weihenstephan is definitely one of my favorite brewery's and personally I don't think anyone makes a better wheat beer so I was very much looking forward to this one. The beer was a nice one with plenty of malt sweetness and dark fruits coming through, sure it didn't quite match the brewery's flagship hefeweizen but it was still a very nice doppelbock with enough going for it to make things interesting. A decent beer well worth picking up but it's not one of the brewery's best offerings, mainly because they have already set the bar so high.

Very rich sweetness, but not cloying. Good slick mouthfeel. Delicious. Decadent. Sweet Raisins.
One of the best I've had! I will have to try this next to Salvator, see which is better.

Cellar temperature in my imperial pint glass...

Not much head other than a bit of tan fizz, but a beautiful deep burgundy or ruby color with thick,flowing streams of carbonation.

The aroma is a malty one. Caramel, toffee, vanilla, cherries, raisins, and prunes. Nice!

Those dark fruits are potent in the flavor, along with some sweet red apple, caramel, and dash of cinnamon. These lovely qualities and are accompanied by an awesome and unmistakable toasted nut character that becomes more noticeable in the finish. It's like I just ate a toasted pecan! Yeeeow!

The body is medium to full, and slightly syrupy.

An impressive specimen of maltiness. And the toasted nut likeness is pretty wild!

Good example of the style. A bit too thin for me though. My favorite doppelbock is Sam Adams double bock.
