One of the outstanding beers of its kind. Thie Dopplebock (with a large dose of Wheat in the mash bill) is a near perfection of the brewing process.
It pours a deep auburn brown. The dextrins of this beer force the cabronation bubbles to the top in one long glorious chain to form thick, long lasting creamy head. Aroma of cloves, choclate and bubble gum fill ones senses.
The taste is truly complex. This beer has the character of a dunkles weizen and a dunkles bock. But this beer has a crisp clean taste that one doesn't expect from a Weizenbock. The body is full of dextrins -it is full with a smooth carbonation that keeps it from being cloying. Yet, both the front end and the middle of this beer have all of the flavor of a Wiezenbock. Spicy cloves, bannana, and bubble gum can be detected. Yet, the phenols are by no means over powering. This beer finishes with a clean, dry, crisp ending that is quite refreshing. Alcohol cannot be detected until the finish, but it doesn't overpower. Which makes this beer quite deceptive. It"s 8.2% ABV demands respect. It is not meant to be guzzled.

Poured from a 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a a tulip glass. Now the most interesting part is not what came out if the bottle but what stayed in it. At some point I had stored the bottle on its side in a wine fridge (for 3 months after buying it) and found an exorbitant amount of yeast stuck to the side of the bottle. Now to me this is a good thing keeping natural unfiltered flavor with the brew especially the Bavarian style. Unlike any other beer this was a cloudy chocolate brown color. There was large amount of white head when poured violently from the bottle. Hints of chocolate malt taste similar to the color. Has the sweetness that accompanies bocks but also the breast wheat vibe. Has a good balance between wheat and malt with an elevated abv of 8.2% which is barely noticeable to the pAlate.
Don't think I've had a beer of this style before. It seems like American craft brewers would have their work cut out for them with this style.
