Pours a thin cream head, quickly receding to the edges. Brew is a dark purplish brown, clear at the edges, but almost perfectly opaque through the center.

Aroma is of sweet, dark fruits and bread. Figs, dates, and raisins are forefront; fruit-bread secondary; grapes and bananas tertiary. A bit of malted wheat sneaks through. No hint of the alcohol.

Flavor is a mix of dark fruit, bread, wheat, yeast, and alcohol, roughly in that order. It truly is a Weizen-Doppelbock cranked up to 11 (or, more accurately, 12%).

Shockingly thick mouthfeel up front, carrying plenty of heat and liveliness. Medium sting. After the initial blast of alcohol heat, it calms down nicely for a subdued feel, with a nice warming after effect.

Fairly long wet finish, with a bit of alcohol sting along for the ride.

This is an enigmatic beer. It has a classic Doppelbock aroma, but carries it in a huge ABV format that, realistically, is impressively integrated. It's a very good beer, but I don't know that such a potent variation is really needed to carry the flavor any better than it already is in their regular Weizen-Doppelbock.
