What the brewer says

“Orig­i­nally brewed as liq­uid bread by fast­ing monks, this dop­pel­bock is rich and fill­ing. Crisp and de­li­cious for the win­ter months.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Mod­er­ate toasty malt with light bread crust at first that turns into prune and pear, but also veg­e­tal, wet bready malt, and bread pud­ding. Flo­ral and spicy hops. Over­ally, nose is a bit muted, and a bit more malt on the nose would help set the stage for what’s to come.” Fla­vor: “Roasted malt, caramel, cof­fee, slight cho­co­late. Slight flo­ral/spicy hops. Clean lager fer­men­ta­tion. No­tice­able, but not harsh, al­co­holic warmth. Slightly sweet (but not cloy­ing) fin­ish that is dried out a bit by the al­co­hol. Some strong earthy mushroom notes add an umami rich­ness to it.” Over­all: “Sweet and yummy. Malt com­plex­ity is some­what lack­ing, but nice Mu­nich-malt char­ac­ter. Low roast, some toasted bread notes, and just enough sweet­ness to sug­gest bread pud­ding.”
