16.9oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass shows a reddish hued opaque brown body and floats an inpressive 2+in cream colored head of mixed bubbles an leaves erratic lacing.

Aromas and flavors of roasted barley, brown sugar, and fresh air, and a hint of smoke.

Mouthfeel is a solid medium with a slight aftertaste of roastiness.

Overall a great example of the style.

500ml bottle, tulip, 19.12.2018 on the back label.

This Bavarian bring back is visibly bubbly and garnet hued. All those bubbles make a roughly textured pale tan head.

Mounds of dark, figgy fruits and an almost woody maltiness fill the aroma; dried cherries, prunes, currants, spiced bread pudding.

Cherry wood and layer upon layer of chewy, hearty malt. The complexity is amazing, as is the lack of sweetness. It’s mellow and woody, tasting of raisin, buttered rum, and bread pudding.

The body is not slick, not chewy, but substantial, and it has to be to throw down with the carbonation. Ultimately a balance is struck.

A king of Doppelbocks is what we have here. Asam Bock is refined by I’m sure many many years of brewing and is a must for aficionados of the style or serious beer people.

Ok, I cheated, had this poured as draft at Prost! pub in Boise. So good, just so good! Gives Rochefort 10 a real run for the money.....The kegged brew is actually better.

Really a desert, special treat beer. An Icewein Bier, if you will. Just malty, heady goodness in a glass. Be sure to warm it up to 50F+.

Yes, this is an Asam ("awesome") Bock, aka dopplebock, by Weltenburger. In draft and bottle it is a superb dopplebock, a benchmark of the variety.

From 500 ml bottle into glass. L. Dark brown, 1 inch light tan head with reasonable duration. S. Some caramel sweetness and grain. T. The best bit. Caramel, sweet and toffee but not sticky or cloying. Lingers for a little after taste. F. Medium body, light carbonation. O. Very good, genuine older style dark beer.

Deep veiled dark brown color with a copper hue and a bit of activity. Soft creamy light brown 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with good legs and swirl reaction. Flavors of toffee, sweet barley, dark berries, clove, banana, light molasses and cherry, with herbal hops. Smooth and light silky medium body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Strong strength finish, bready and heavily sugary, slightly sour and vinous, with some leafy hops and a pleasant fruity profile. Lots of spices, slightly earthy. The freshness is average, more filling and warming, bold for the ABV. Good for desert or even as an appetizer. Nice complexity and balance. Overall high quality craft.

Apparently forgot to rate this one on the site. One of my old go to brews in darker times of beerdom. Rich toffee, caramel, bread taste is wonderful compliment to the malt backbone. Little thinner than some others, but still nice, in fact almost creamy.

Pours a deep dark brown color with a nice top of creamy off-white head that dissolves slowly and leaves some nice sticky lacings on the glass. The aroma is rich with strong notes of bread,caramel, plums,raisins,coffee and brown sugar. The flavour is sweet and sugary with notes of dried and dark fruits at the start with a good amount of roasted malts in the back that also gives strong notes of caramel and some smaller notes of coffee. The finish also brings some bitterness in the flavour mixed with roasted malt flavour. Rich and well balanced taste with a strong and long aftertaste. The mouthfeel gets a hint to weak considering the strong flavour, but it is soft and creamy with a medium carbonation and a full body. Goes down amazingly well.
Is with no doubt in my own opinion one of the best doppelbocks out there.

I like how this has a sweetness - almost maple-like aftertaste. Good example of a German doppelbock, this one leaning toward the chocolate and coffee notes that have become popular in American craft brewing, but not going quite so far out. High but not crazy ABV, not really noticeable. Good beer I think.
