Picked up this 500mL bottle a few months ago at Manchester Wine and Liquors, Manchester CT, for $4.40. Code 10.141 0259 2822. I've had this many times and have always loved it; it is one of the first "fancy" beers I remember trying all those years ago when I was just budding as a beer geek. Served @ 47F in a large weizen glass of the same temperature.
A: Brew is a dark umber or root beer color, brown with an orange tint, completely clear, with abundant carbonation. 1" of ivory head settles quickly to nothing. The yeast was settled firmly at the bottom of the bottle, but a good swirl of the last bit brought it to my glass (at which point the brew became obviously cloudy).
S: Firstly brown sugar, dried figs, yeast, nutmeg and ginger. Then secondary notes of fresh plums, vanilla, muted lemon, banana.
T: Warm rich balance between malt and wheat in the backbone. Big gingerbread presence, warm ginger and nutmeg, tons of sweat spicy bready goodness up front and lasts straight through the finish. Mild lemon balm hop appears mid sip and also lingers in the finish.
M: Rich and delectable, alcohol entirely hidden, but only medium-bodied, not filling, and eminently quaffable. Excellent balance.
D: All the warmth and spice I like in a typical dunkel, but the lighter mouthfeel (despite it being stronger), brightness, and a TON of diversity make this truly exceptional. Awesome.
My only gripe is the appearance... can't get any sort of head out of it. A minor shortcoming.

Poured a dark ruby color, the color of a British style porter, around 30 to 40 SRM, with a thick, white, long-lasting head and plenty of yeast in suspension. Creamy mouthfeel. Rich, malty sweetness with a mildly tart finish. Aromas of clove and grapes and berries. No hop aroma, mild to no hop bitterness, mild to no alcohol. This is the benchmark for a wheat dopplebock. Rich, complex and fruity.
