500ml bottle "wheat dopplebock, ale"? 8.2 ABV
Chilled and poured into big Weizen glass, nice one finger foamy off white head, with decent retention, but a little on the week side. The body is clowdy and rich milk chocolate, caramel brown color, very opaque, murky with tones of green apple around the base and surface of the mass. Smell is classic and very aromatic with lots of "banana nut bread" hints of spice and fruit from yeast not exactly fermentation temps? Hops are not very present in the aroma, the yeast backed by malt are really the showcase of this beer. Flavor is very rich and malt forward hops are are not very present in the flavor other than a contribution of bitterness. Yeast has played quit a large role in shaping the taste of this beer which is very nice. As mentioned in the smell clover banana nut bread with a touch of sourness toward the finish. The ABV is strong, but still at a very drinkable level this is a totally quaffable beer.

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.
