4.3/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 1 pint plus .9 fl. oz. tapered bottle with a cool purple, gold and white label. "Germany's Original Wheat-Doppelbock, Ale." No freshness date seen.
Appearance: Comparable colour to a Double Bock though even deeper and thicker shades of brown from the cloudiness, thin off white lace that has a creamy look to it.
Smell: Ripe fruit is dominant with caramel undertones, almost rum like. Soft spicy clove with hints of caramelized plantains, alcoholic esters are noticeable.
Taste: Mildly crisp carbonation from a stiff pour into the glass, creamy and syrupy thick mouth feel within the full body. Snappy and tingling, parading a clean bite from some spicy clove and sweetish alcohol that leans toward a fruity rum character. Hop bitterness is minute as well as the flavour. Gentle hints of chocolate and chicory and to the complex flavour, finish cleans up a bit from the warming alcohol, nutty yeast and husky grain.
Notes: A massive wheat brew that is unsurpassed by any other of its kind. Unpasteurized, unfiltered, top fermented and original bottle fermentation. The yeast in this brew, make the brew. After pouring, there was enough yeast to begin propagation. This is by far one of the best bock beers tasted to date.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
