Nut brown color, with a decent white head, leaving no lacing.

Aromas of hazelnut, banana, malt, plums, not as intense as the Aventinus.

Malt driven, supported by yeast and banana flavor, with a lot of spicy cloves and alcohol, enwrapped by sugar. Alcohol becomes too present for my taste as the malt sweetness begins to vanish, gets supported only by sugar. Beer turns from very sweet to sharp bitter in a split-second, due to the alcohol. Carbonation is fine, supporting the body of the beer. Oily, honeyed mouthfeel. This may just be a little too extreme for my taste, I dont find many nuances in this beer, as my tongue seems to get numb by the obvious alcohol. First impression is surprisingly refreshing, medium-bodied, fruity and warm. Then my palate gets hammered by lots of sugar, followed by alcohol and alcoholic bitterness, which warms my belly. Although I dont love it, I have to admit that the beer by itself is somehow convincing. Its something you should take your time with, to adjust to the taste and furthermore the goal of the beer. As this is the first warm week of Spring in this year, I find it hard to imagine the streets around my room covered in snow. But I think thats when you should drink this, to warm yourself up. When it is very, very cold. And you don’t mind a sugar rush, followed by an alcohol overdose, because it fits to the overall situation. This is a special beer for special ocasions, you shouldn’t drink it as an every day beer. Get ready for it, and try to enjoy.

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.
