Deep reddish mahogany topped by a creamy bone-white to khaki head. Pretty good retention. Looks very inviting.

Aroma contains raisin with some grape and warm dark breads.

Raisin and grape hit first. This gives way as some roastiness takes over. The roastiness lingers, the sweet grape comes back for a second, before a long biscuity malty finish with a hint of lightly roasted grain. Dark breads kind of fill out the flavor from start to finish, and become most noticable in the aftertaste. Finishes a little sweet. As it warms, more dark fruits come out. I love how the flavors interchange, and all of them are good. The mouthfeel is amazing.

I haven't had this in years...man I was missing out. This is one of my favorites.

So why review this well-known beer? Aw, whatever, its damn good!

Dark night color with a thick head that dissipates quickly - head takes on a tan/dirty cream color leaving some thin lines of stain off of fairly coating lace.

Smells of impressive slightly roasted wheat and malt nose that opens to hearty nuttiness. Something else in the nose that i can’t describe – floral as well as pistachio nut.

Some roasted malt on the tongue but mostly a darkened wheat and malt flavor with some creamy tone. The strong point appears to me to be the (seeming) wheatiness that is roasted enough but the pure wheat flavor still exists. Truly, its nothing more than nutty, malty flavors that build on top of each other. You might call it mukry with all those roast and malt flavors, but I find it as delectable, complex, hearty, and drinkable as a doppelbock can get. Sometimes, the bottled version mildly tingles on your tongue, with a taste of a dark cheese with earthy, sour fruitiness to it (?!), but not always. Soft yet thick feel on the tongue that comes along with a sprightly hops bitterness in the high back mouth.

Easily understandable as a described "world classic." Drank MUCH BETTER in a small snifter glass as opposed to a stein or large tulip glass.

A - Opaque brown. Slight tints of reddish brown. Nice beige head.

S - Malt balls. Bread. Raisins.

T - Grainy bread. Malt. Dates. Slight toffee sweetness. Mild bitterness.

M - Medium bodied. Sweet.

O - What a dank beer! Super smooth and easy to drink. Yet it has all of the big malty flavors and bready sweetness. Will definitely be drinking again.
