Glass: Ayinger willi glass

Pours a 1cm tall mass of beige-colored foam, made up of small to medium-sized bubbles, somewhat dense-looking. Retention is average, about one minute in length, fading to a thin ring around the body of the beer. Lacing is present, though rather minimal, a few small dots and lines cling haphazardly to the sides of the glass. The body is a deep golden orange, bordering on brown, with light bringing out brighter golden orange hues and slight yellow highlights. Carbonation is visible through the transparent body, modest in activity and number.

Aroma of sweet, light caramel malt with strong toasted bread undercurrents and a moderate herbal, German hop presence.

Flavor is heavily influenced towards toasted bread, nuts, and woodsy hops, much less caramel/cocoa/dark malt than Uerige's doppelsticke, more reminiscent of a strong bock than a doppelbock, if we're thinking of lager terms. Front of palate experiences toasted, lighter-colored breads with modest graininess and balanced caramelized malt sugar sweetness, hints of dried brown figs, and a slightly herbal German hop touch. Mid-palate is of deep, rich toasted bread and balanced caramelized malt sugar sweetness, dried brown figs, light graininess, toasted nuts, and modest European hop herbal flavors and bitterness. Back of palate features rich caramel malt sweetness, lightly toasted nuts, and herbal Germanic hops with less emphasis on toasted bread and grains, though these are present as well. Aftertaste is of toasted bread, caramel malt sweetness, lightly toasted nuts, and mild European hop bitterness with an herbal edge.

Beer is medium bodied, with medium to medium-low levels of carbonation, bordering on the line of fizzy, but never crossing it. The result is a lightly effervescent, then foamy and smooth mouthfeel. Ethanol is not detectable at all in this 8.5% ABV brew. Closes semi-dry, with medium level stickiness clinging to the palate.
