I like the Ayinger whites and wheats so I figured I would try the dobbelbock. This beer pours a great head and probably comes in one of the coolest bottles, maybe that's why it's so damn expensive. Basically would figure out to be around $20 a 6 pack, and for that reason I don't think it's worth it. The beer has a robust malty taste with a dark red color. The alcohol is there at 6.7%, but is barely noticeable. I have to say I enjoyed this beer, but couldn't get over the price for what you get. I don't know what Ayingers thinking with this beer because their other beers come in 22 oz and are the same price if not cheaper. At least the bottle came with a nick nack, maybe it's a collectible and it's worth $2. I just feel bad for the guy who had to tie one of these to every bottle they sold.
