BBD of 06/17/15

Pours an effervescent & chill hazed copper/auburn with 2 fingers of sand colored head. Stays effervescent throughout, good lacing, average head retention

S: Bananas, breadyness. & not muxh else

T: Bananas green & ripe, some breadyness & boozeyness & some metallic notes up front, along with much juicy fruit. More boozeyness, a little white grape & breadynesss layered in green bananas as this warms, some dryness too. Finishes with taffy, green bananas, taffy, a little boozeyness, & green apple

MF: Chewy, fairly subtle carbonation

This is a Weizenbock! Not a Dopple; but whatever you call it pretty good, could give Vitus a run for its money with some age on it. If you haven't cracked it, let it rest another 3-6 months

The latest in Deschutes Conflux series lands it at the foothill of Germanic roots. The classic double bockbier of Bavaria is met with the avant garde nature of Pacific Northwest imagination. Collaborating with longtime friends at the Distelhauser brewery of Germany, their mind boggling results are something of a double dopplebock!

Yet its hazy camel hues highlight the rustic and traditional spelt "dinkel" grains for a bready-sweet upstart that hinges on rye. As the succulence of light caramel and simple syrups take on maple proportions, its fruity center rounds into place.

Bold apple, grape, plum and maraschino cherry take center stage while an undertow of hefeweizen transpires. Classic papaya and clove simmer underneath the massive cobbler-esque dissertlike taste just as its boozy spice rises to balance the malt.

Its long and savory finish keeps the taste malt-forward, however the peppery alcohol links up with herbal and citrus-type bitterness for a bite that's something akin to vodka. Full bodied, the beer's syrupy malts seep deeply into the mouth's tissue and is reluctant to release- making this decadent beer much more of a sipping session rather than for quick or mass consumption.

Interestingly, the more meladoidin-laden taste of bock is replaced here by those curiously charming hefeweizen flavors for interest and provocation.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass.

Appearance: Cloudy, fiery orange with huge, frothy, light tan head that lasts a few minutes but then mostly disappears.

Smell: Spicy, sweet, bready and metallic, with specific notes of banana and bubblegum. Lots going on and I am tempted to give it a huge score for the huge aroma, but it is a little sickly in terms of the sweetness.

Taste: There are a lot of the traditional notes of a Weizenbock here, with bubblegum, banana, caramel and clove. There is also a hint of citrus. But it is also pretty sweet for the style (and this is oftentimes a sweet style to begin with) probably due to the very high abv. There are also sharp bread and spice notes that are different than what I typically experience from hops, yeast or rye. This is probably due to the spelt. I really did not like these notes on the first few sips but I have gotten used to it, and it makes the beer unique but makes it hard for me to love.

Feel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Fairly smooth and creamy but almost no dryness on the finish.

Overall: This is a unique take on the Weizenbock style. And while I like unique takes, I am not sure I fully appreciate the use of smelt or the overall sweet, highly alcoholic notes.

A hint of old ripe fruit on the nose joined by rich, dark bread.
Slightly hazed deep amber under a 2” finely bubbled lightly tan tinted foam cap. The head quickly descends but rouses easily, produces fine lace and leaves a suggestion of legs.
An extremely creamy rich texture carries an interesting array of malt flavors through the mouth with a distinctive spelt spicyness, grainy malt, bread, and a faint suspicion of bacon.
Medium to medium full body suggests liquid bread.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Label says best by 06/17/15.

Appearance: Pours a dark and hazy brownish amber with a lot of bubbles. About one finger of off white head which fades away rather quickly.

Smell: A bready, fruity, and spicy malt forward aroma with hints of dried fruit and spices. Toasted malts with hints of biscuit, wheat, grains, straw, caramel, and the Spelt yeast. Light hints of chocolate roast and smoke. Spice hints of clove and slight cinnamon. Big hints of bubblegum. Fruit esters of banana, apple, pear, and citrus orange. Sweet hints of molasses sugar. Hops are pretty subtle. A very solid smell.

Taste: Like the smell, a toasty, fruity, and spicy German style taste with notes of fruit and spice. Toasted malts with bready notes of wheat, biscuit, grains, straw, caramel, and Spelt yeast along with some light notes of chocolate and smoke. Spicy notes of clove and cinnamon. Big taste of fruit with notes of bananas, apple, pear, orange, and lemon. Good notes of bubblegum. Sweet taste of molasses. Light background presence of earthy hops. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and juicy. Alcohol heat is felt but it isn’t excessive.

Overall: A very good twist on a German wheat bock. Good mix of fruit esters and spices.

Got this during SF beer week from a tap. Super delicious. Very complex, strong beer. Would love to try it again.

Poured from 22 ounce bottle into a tulip, using standard vigor.


A - DDB pours a rich, somewhat ruddy orange, showing abundant carbonation.
The head is an inch high, tight and fluffy, and khaki-colored. It recedes in under a minute, and leaves little to no lacing on the glass.


S - Your typical offenders from Bavarian Wheat Yeast strains : Bubblegum, banana, and clove, as expected. Hints of Munich malt toastiness and molasses, as well as cinnamon and light citrus. When cold, the ABV is dangerously well-hidden, as it warms the alcohol becomes more apparent, but doesn't invade the sinuses either.


T - More bubblegum, spicebox, and a slight earthy note on the back end that must be the Spelt, seeing as it reminds me of a wheat-malt base, but with a richer underlying flavor. Hops are an afterthought here, which is good, since they aren't a prevalent part of the style. Again, the booze is well-hidden, aside from the warmth currently spreading through my belly and veins. Delicious.


M- Full, rich, and silky, DDB washes across the tongue like a wave of malty knuckle-sandwiches. The carbonation plays a tiny part in the mouthfeel, serving only to balance out the rich malt flavors and yeast esters with the perfect touch of carbonic acids. This beer is one slick customer in this department.


O - On one hand, I'm glad this isn't a year-round offering from Deschutes, because I'd be too far gone to do anything if it was, as this is the most easy to drink Doppel I think I've ever had. On the OTHER hand, I'm really sad it isn't a year-round beer, because I'd love to have the chance to snag it when in need of some beer psychotherapy. It's perfectly balanced, rich where it should be, and yielding as well. As a homebrewer, this beer makes me feel like I should brew something with Spelt as well... Deschutes scores yet another goal in my book, and at only $10 and some change, there's absolutely no reason to pass it up, given the chance to try it. DO EET! Cheers.

Poured into a Seidel from a bomber.

A- Has a fluffy, foamy, pale cream-colored head about a finger and a half thick. It persists well and leaves a wall of lace on the mug's sides. The body is brown but with some transparency and amber hues. Not much carbonation is visible.

S- I think caramel apple here. Big caramel notes, floral, bread-like and wheaty. Something suggests a touch of dark fruit.

T- Thick caramel maltiness, some booze, the aftertaste is like a taste of whole wheat bread. The caramel flavor becomes really milky and sweet. It's quite like eating a block of caramel. A hint of wine or grape sneaks in. I enjoy this.

M- Medium body with a mostly creamy quality somewhat offset by the alcohol feel. Sweetness is big here, but I like it. There's a teeny hint of hop bitterness at the finish that does a good job of keeping the sweetness from becoming cloying. Certainly smooth, and maybe a tad astringent, with low carbonation.

Pretty darn good beer. I'd say a bit more heat than one would want, and the aroma didn't wow me, but otherwise excellent.

22oz bottle served in a curved glass. Beer pours thick and syrupy, with a brown amber color, and little head. Looks pretty turbid, too. Aroma suggests clove and bubblegum, and with all the ethanol (this bottle is labeled 10.7% ABV) I get a bit of whiskey / Jack Daniels, too. Flavor is sweet, a little bit grainy, and strong. Doesn't taste much like beer, to me, which is too bad. This just feels like a recipe for a hangover. The spice character is the only thing this beer has going for it in the mouth, and it's not enough to keep me interested. It's just a sugary, boozy, mess.

Doppelbock is a tricky style to get right, Weizenbock perhaps even more so. And Aventinus is one of my all time favorite beers. So I am even more let down by this offering from Deschutes than I might have otherwise been.

This is a big beer with big ABV and big flavor. It starts off a little sweet, bubblegum like, but with a little warmth it opens up to resemble a Quad. The bubblegum sweetness subsides and a raisin, date and dark fruit sweetness takes its place. It then finishes with huge matiness. The feel is very thick with a little viscosity and a completely hidden ABV.

Indeed! A spelt doppel bock!?! This fine brew pours a thick reddish orange with nice pooling
white foam and excellent lacing. Cloves hit the aroma up front with some rather unusual
smells for the style other than the normal bread, banana, and orange. Very earthy and a true
crusade for unique flavors. A malt bomb with spicy spelt notes mingling with rich roasted
caramel notes, some fig like flavors on the back, hints of toffee and a sweetness that can only
be described as bubble gum. Great mouthfeel with medium carbonation and very subtle
hops in the aftertaste. Alcohol hits with warmth. Very few spelt brews are made, and while
this may not be a true dopplebock it is worth praise for being VERY good and rather unique
in it's presentation of a rather underused grain. A must try for the adventurous.

Update: 9/6/2014
Same vendor just put this on the growler station and it is sublime. Smoother mouthfeel and
spicy notes are a bit more pronounced as is the alcohol content. I would suggest to anyone
able to try it on draft to go for it. VERY GOOD INDEED!

22 ounce bottle, label says best before 06/17/15. Served in a mug, the beer pours a burnt orange color with about a half inch light tan creamy head. The head stays around a while, and there's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like cloves, banana, bubblegum, caramel, and some candied oranges. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also bready malt and a sweet spiciness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. It's also smooth and easy to drink, the 10.7% ABV is well hidden. I liked this brew, definitely worth a try! I know I wouldn't mind getting another bottle of this.

Just not my style I guess, those Belgian yeast flavors can be a real turnoff for me in some beers. The nose was big time banana and clove, I thought the yeast did play well with the malts producing an aroma reminiscent of banana bread, also raisins and cherries, a little bubblegum. It poured ruby brown with a white head and it was full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. On the palate banana and clove were still the most prevalent, bubblegum, that banana bread thing I mentioned, cherry and some spices, but everything aside from those first two was pretty subtle. In the end I was conflicted with this beer because of personal preference. It's well made beer, good overall actually, it's just not for me.

Aroma of banana/bubblegum/clove. Amber color, medium haze, thin white head, no lacing. Flavor of banana/bubblegum/clove, slightly spicy. Alcohol after, but very well hidden. Not thick or oily, very fluid. Good beer. Delicious, kinda like a hefeweizen.

Bottle poured into a nonic pint glass

A: Pours rich copper amber with a creamy off white head that fades.

S: Big banana and clove up front with some caramel malt sweetness.

T: Sweet fruity banana, a touch of apple, with maybe even some faint raspberry, some bubble gum, a bit of clove spice, and some caramel malt sweetness. Hides it's % very well.

M: Fuller body, fairly creamy, low to medium carbonation.

O: Happy to finally get my hands on this one. More German style dark wheat beer rather than doppel bock than I was expecting, but quite tasty (and a bit of an ass kicker).

L: A very dark orange with light carbonation. A vigorous pour provides a thin head that quickly turns into a thin lace.

S: The aroma is very strong. Very heavy notes of cloves, banana and bubblegum. There is some alcohol smell behind them, but it is faint and hard to discern past the more forward ester smell.

T: The beer hits the palate very bright and flavor forward. Very much like a souped up hefeweizen with strong notes of cloves and bubblegum with some banana and alcohol taste behind it. The bubblegum flavor is strong on the finish and lingers on the palate with some booziness. A first sip I was delighted, but about halfway through the glass it has gotten rather cloying.

F: Very bright and crisp, but also thick and surprisingly heavy on the palate.

O: There are beers that need to grow on me throughout the glass and this is the opposite of that. I really enjoyed the first third of the glass. It was bright and forward, unique with a lot to taste and work through. But after about half a glass the bubblegum finish is just too much for me. The alcohol taste is also present, but restrained enough to avoid an issue in a beer over 10%. I think this beer is a very solid weizenbock for some tastes, but is really too sweet and cloying for me to enjoy more than a half pint.

This beer was poured from a 22oz bottle into a Blind Pig mug and enjoyed at apx 50F.

a: its a rich amber color with some murky ruby red and light purple notes. head only consists of a thin film

s: fig, prunes, over-ripe banana, grapes, and sticky toffee. a small amount of alcohol mixed in as well

t: the taste follows the aroma almost exactly. its figs, prunes, raisins, banana, toffee, some brown sugar, and finally cut by some alcohol to balance the sweetness - it is a quite sweet beer. for a beer with so many 'heavy' flavors, its surprisingly easy to drink. you do pick up some alcohol, but only towards the end

m: its on the lighter side of medium. carbonation is high-medium, which is nice because it helps the dark fruits feel a little juicier

o: its a good beer. the flavor profile is ordered in a nice way, and its easy to drink. have to watch out on this one, with the high abc

Poured on the orange side of amber. Smells like a doppel. Banana, double bubble, cloves, sweet malt and yeast. This beer realy delivers on the label description word for word. Citrusy with subtle banana, sweet, with a unique malt charachteristic. Also just a hint of spiceyness at the tail end. Almost like a cayene pepper. Perfect body and you would never know that it is almost 11%. Easily one of the best I have ever had in this style. Seems to be underrated to me.

The name suggests it's a doppel bock, but the use of dinkel/spelt malt suggests it a weizenbock. A video on Deschutes' website identifies this as a weizenbock, so I'm reviewing as such.

BOTTLE: Best by 06/17/15. 10.7% ABV. 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass, with a generic green label and a branded maroon pry-off pressure cap.

Served cold into a pilsner glass and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated. Expectations are high; I loved the first beer in the conflux series.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: Two fingers wide. Pale khaki colour. Nice plump supple complexion and an even, smooth consistency, with good creaminess and thickness. Soft-looking. Full and thick. Retention is excellent for a 10.70% beer - around 6-8 minutes. Leaves no lacing as it recedes.

BODY: Dark deep auburn-brown. Surprisingly, it's translucent and transparent. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible. I expected a darker body with more opacity and a more robust appearance. This isn't a great body for a doppelbock or weizenbock.

Appears well-carbonated. It's a decent appearance overall.

AROMA: Bubblebum dominates, with some subsidiary yeast banana. Definitely a wheat beer, but it does have some brown bread malts, caramel, and light syrup. I can see where this protein heavy spelt malt would be more suited to bread baking than beer making. I don't find the clove or citrus promised on the label.

No alcohol, overt hop notes, or off-notes are detectable.

Bubblegum isn't a great note to dominate, especially in a weizenbock. But the malts are lovely and I'm curious to try it. A pleasant overall aroma of average strength.

TASTE: Ample bubblegum is present alongside some phenols, light caramel, brown bread malts, and leavening wheat. Unfortunately, the bubblegum overpowers the more traditional bready notes - yeast triumphing over malts. Odd in a weizenbock. And isn't the whole idea behind this brew to showcase the bready dinkel malt? Why overshadow it with a cheap yeasty characteristic? Some of the other caramel-like malts feel syrupy and out of place. It's surprisingly sweet for a weizenbock, and I find myself waiting for some spicy clove to help balance it out, but it never comes. The citrus mentioned on the label never appears, but I think that a good thing. I do get a hint of plum, which feels out of place here - more Belgian than German. Caramel candied apples come to mind as I drink; I usually hate apple in beer.

Imbalanced in the sense that the bubblegum overpowers the rest of the flavour profile. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. It's not a real complex or subtle brew. Lacks the delicacy and intricacy of superior beers in the style.

I'm not sure I like this one. The bubblegum is just too distracting, and I wish it were more malt-forward.

TEXTURE: Syrupy, thick, smooth, and wet. Overcarbonated. Luckily, it avoids the astringency usually associated with dinkelbiere. It's a full-bodied heavy feel for a weizenbock, and the syrupy feel doesn't work for it. It's nicely soft, though.

An okay companion to the taste. Doesn't feel custom-tailored to it. This mouthfeel doesn't elevate the beer.

OVERALL: I always applaud experimentation and the resurrection of lost or obscure beer styles, but this brew has a strange obsession with bubblegum, to the detriment of not only its balance, but its purported focus as well. Why brew with obscure spelt malt and then cover it up with phenolic yeasty bubblegum notes?

To its credit, though, it's quite drinkable for 10.70%, and it's definitely a meal in a glass. But the bubblegum is fatiguing, and I quickly tire of it. I wouldn't buy this again and it doesn't even come close to the quality of Conflux #1. I wouldn't recommend it to friends or trade partners.

22oz (best by 6/17/2015) into a tulip. Pours a hazy amber w/ a thin off-white head.

Aroma is fruity, malt, sweet, bready. A touch floral. Kind of like a sweet Marzen.

Taste follows nose. Strongly sweet, fruity, bready. Just shy of syrupy. Some bittering hops to balance things out, barely.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. Tons of caramel and crystal malt here. Carbonation isn't sufficient to cut the heavy malt.

Overall a big strong malt bomb of a beer. Enjoyable enough, but probably not something I would seek out again.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 6/17/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, apple, lemon, orange, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, light herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, apple, lemon, orange, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, light herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, apple, lemon, orange, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with an awesome malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice weizen bock style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Decent looking dark amber, almost hazy, with a modest foam in the narrow Crooked Line tulip. Fizzy on the tongue with an unctuous mouthfeel. Aroma is fruit cocktail with warm, bubbling caramel.

All I can think of is candy apples, with that caramel coating. For some reason, grape jelly comes to mind. This is surely one of the sweetest beers I've ever had, but there is a bright, winey character as well. A little bitterness, like pear skins. Aftertaste is apple pie, again with the caramel. Crazy stuff that bewilders the palate.

A truly interesting malt powerhouse, but a few sips is all I can do at one sitting. Do they make an apple-flavored cough syrup? From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's Liquor in San Diego.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: rich amber-brown hue with a moderately heavy haze. Head poured a thin finger of creamy dark-ivory foam. Not bad at all.

Smell: richly malty and extremely fruity -- there's so much banana ester going on you'd think there were dissolved banana Runts in the thing. Maybe not so classic for a doppelbock, but it's nearly perfect for a hefeweizen. I love it.

Taste: a lot like the aroma up front, with plenty of estery goodness. This slowly develops into a more complex fruitiness; it's still mostly banana, but there's a hint of mango in there too. What a weird beer. I love it.

Mouthfeel: huge body with a good carbonation. It's intensely rich and creamy. Shazam.

Overall: I'm loving this beer. Maybe not particularly traditional, but damn, damn tasty. And terrifyingly drinkable for its ABV.

Thanks Slatetank for sharing this with me. Pours a mahogany color with a big bubble composition for a head that fades quick. The aroma primarily contains a sweetness reminiscent of candy, toffee, raison and molasses. The taste is similar with belgian clove and peppery spice. A sticky sweetness and almost buttery note towards the finish. This is medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Pretty decent overall.
