4.3/5 rDev +2.4%
16.9 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass producing a beer with a two finger light brown head and a dark brown body with deep red highlights. The head retains for the entire course of the drink and leaves splotchy lacing.
Smells of sweet caramel malty goodness. There is also a dark fruit prune/fig component.
You get the same sweet maltiness and fruit in the taste as in the nose but with an added hop characteristic. No alcohol detected in the taste but can feel it in my head.
The body and carbonation levels are just perfect. The feel and flavors meld just right.
Weihenstephner has done it again. Sehr gutes Bier.

Thin off white head, a little lacing on a dark brown body. Aroma is extremely malty, as if I am walking through the brewery. Very nice aroma. Flavor is also very malty and sweet. Very smooth, medium body and moderate carbonation. This beer is very good. I have not had a malty beet to this degree. This beer us very true to the style and I will be looking to have this one again soon.The spices I looke for in my bocks aren't there as they seen to be overshadowed by the maltiness.

4.03/5 rDev -4%
Poured from 500 ml bottle into a footed bock glass.
A: Very dark brown. Pours a slight, bubbly, brownish head. Quickly dissipates leaving a beer ring around the rim. Beer ring lacing.
S: Pecans, butterscotch, molasses, and maple syrup.
T: Kind of a buttery, malty flavor with a little black licorice and butterscotch.
M: Thick and robust syrupy character. Sweet but not cloying. A bit steely going down, and a pungent finish. Just a bit of a peaty aftertaste.
D: Filling, but a really great drinkability with not too much of a high alcohol character.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Fair initial appearance with some nice persistent lacing. Great sweet, malty, syrupy nose. Flavor is a robust combo of thick syrupy sweet malty goodness with a and a pungent bittersweet finish. Overall, this is a good quaff.

4.18/5 rDev -0.5%
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a glass mug.
A- Pours a very dark ruby red brown that is almost black. Has a thick foamy light tan head with some big bubbles. The small amount of light that gets through near the bottom of the glass is what gives it it's ruby tint.
S- Slight cocoa notes, malty. Slightly bready, slight notes of raisins, oats, wheat. A bit like cocoa flavored cereal.
T- Very Sweet, slightly bready with a sweet cocoa tinge at the end. Starts off rather chocolaty. There is a bready middle with slight coffee notes. A taste of multi-grain wheat bread.
M- light carbonation feel. smooth. Syrupy/thick.
O- A very unique dopplebock with its complex beady/wheaty flavor. Definitely worth trying. Vary flavorful with a brilliant aroma.
