From a 500 ml bottle into a hefe glass.

A-The brew is swampy looking and tea-brown in color. It is very murky. The three-finger head of tan foam is dense and lasts quite a while. Not much lacing left behind. The looks aren't spectacular, but are appropriate for the style.

S-The smell is lightly chocolatey with a decent bit of banana-like sweetness and barely-noticeable alcohol. The clove-forward wheat spice is well integrated with the other scents and there is a bit of lemony fruit, too.

T-The taste is full of milk chocolate, caramel, baking spices, and a sweet, banana/ester. There is some lighter, more citrus-like fruit flavor from the alcohol, too. Really delicious.

M-The feel is soft and medium in body with a pleasant touch on the palate. Very drinkable for the ABV.

O-This is a great beer that I wish I could find more often. There is something odd about the mix of chocolate and wheat flavors that really works well here and makes for a good summer beer, even at 8.2 % ABV. This is my favorite of beer of this style by far.

Glassware: Bell's Belgian Style Snifter.

Appearance: Brown in color, this beer is slightly hazy, with no discernible floating particles or sediment. With an average pour, a large 2 finger head with soapy texture was produced that lasted for quite a while. Lacing was sparse.

Smell: Strong smell of toffee, fresh bread, caramel, brown sugar, and general malt sweetness. A roasted quality is also present. Perhaps a bit of gingerbread, as well.

Taste: Taste consists of the same plus banana and bubblegum. Sweet fresh frig taste is also present. Burnt brown sugar abounds. Overall sweetness is moderate to heavy, and overall bitterness is very light.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body, the texture of this beer is thin and slick. Carbonation is average to slightly higher than average.

Overall: This is an amazing beer! Tons of toffee flavor and caramel sweetness, an excellent mouthfeel, and standard appearance make for my favorite doppelbock yet.

Poured from 16.9 oz bottle in to a weizen glass.

A- Medium brown and super cloudy, like a mud puddle. Really frothy light tan head.

S- The smell is heavenly spice, clove, and banana. Just about perfect.

T- The tastes compliments the smell perfectly. Some dark fruits and sweetness mingle with all the flavors from the nose and make this just wonderful.

M- Medium body and alive with carbonation. Silky smooth too.

O- This beer fulfilled my expectations and then some. I will definitely enjoy this again.

Pours a very cloudy amber color with 2 finger width foamy head. Head retention is decent. Lacing is good. There is quite a bit of precipitate in the beer. Has a slight caramel toffee aroma with some raisin, phenols and slight nuttiness. Can detect a higher alcohol content. Taste is similar. Caramel toffee and raisins; smooth to a more spicy ending. Alcohol content evident. The taste is better than the aroma but still not anything to blow me away.

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?
