Dopple ist gut, no?

The Aventinus is a German Wheat Dopple Bock – which is basically a dark wheat with bigger, bolder flavors – and of course, more alcohol (this beer weighs in at 8.2%, to be exact).    If you like beer in a glass (which basically means a thick beer made with lots of wheat) with a malty and raisin type taste, try this beer.

 

Don’t let the word “wheat” fool you though – this isn’t one of those summer wheat beers that bartenders try to ruin by serving with a lemon – oh no, it’s much bolder than that – and much, much darker.  I, personally love Dopple Bocks; they are close to my heart, much like Brown Ales and Tripels.

 

Don’t fear the Dopple – give it a try!
