Presentation: 1 pint plus .9 fl. oz. bottle "Germany's Original Wheat-Doppelbock, Ale. Poured into .5L cylinder marked Spaten.

Appearance: Compared to Troegs or even Full Sail, their double bocks, are just better looking. Pours a giant head (be careful!), heavily clouded and carbonated. The color of flood waters, an unappealing mud brown. Not an appetizing look at all. Little lacing.

Smell: Barley wine & rum like. Spicy clove dominates, with hints of caramelized fruit, and alcoholic esters are big. Not a summer beer, an end of the winter's night beer - with cheese and dark, chewy bread. I had to go for some cheddar & provolone after dinner to really enjoy this deep, dark, yeasty mutha of a beer. Slightly turned cider smell and taste.

Taste & Feel: Big carbonation from a normal pour into the glass, syrupy thick mouth feel with full body. As in the aroma, rum-like, cloves, rye bread, malts, and alcohol. Very little hops. Suggestions of chocolate and coffee add to the complexity, and the finish is warming, alcoholic, final, END OF THE EVENING. Dark. Moody. I find it's authentic, original, complex, but too sweet.

I like doppelbocks to be more refreshing and offer more hops, bitterness, and less alcohol, clove, and sweetness. Will try again at Christmas?

I feel about this as I do about xmas fruit cake. re-gift?

An excellent Weizenbock. Not a style I choose often and picked up solely because Tap 6 appeared on a recent "beer bucket list"... a good motivation!

Bottle pours a dark and clear chocolate brown colour with an impressive off-white head that has great retention, although resulting in minimal lacing. Aroma of "German yeast" and caramelized wheat, with a toffee roastiness. These notes follow into the flavour, which starts with mellow wheat, surprising smoke in the body, and a bracing German finish.

Lots of flavour.
