Week #2 of Bored at Work Beer Reviews.
Poured into a large, tulip-shaped Riedel glass.
This was actually my first drain-pour about 5 years. It was too big for me then. Couldn't stand it. Funny how things change over time...
First things first, this is a gorgeous beer. Large frothy just off-tan head. Great retention. Started out about 3 fingers and eventually faded to a nice covering of the beer. Eventually the head became a scale model picture of the Milky Way. Just swirls of miniature beer foam planets floating on top of my glass of beer. Very clear, light amber color.
Immediate huge nose of clove, anise, caramelized bananas. This is what fruitcake should smell like. A bit of smokeyness, fresh baked shortbread cookies.
The taste is just as complex. Malty clove induced bananas foster, minimal hops presence. Getting some grain (wheat, duh). Quite sweet, almost bubblegummy. Definitely not the drain pour it once was.
Nice full mouthfeel. Lingers nicely from sip to sip. Not overly carbonated. Very drinkable, even for 8.2%. Definitely one of my go to beers for the cooler months.
Damn, I wish I never poured that first one out...

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.
