look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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?
