Wibby Double Dunkel

What the brewers say

“One of our most popular seasonals, Double Dunkel is an imperial dunkel brewed with lots of chocolate malt and cacao nibs. We lager it on Madagascar vanilla beans. This is a highly drinkable, slightly dangerous lager that is smooth and has a nice crisp lager finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderately strong toasted malt up front with dark chocolate, rich Munich-type malt, and roast behind that. There’s a touch of vanilla in the background. Slight earthy noble-hops aromas.”

Flavor: “The vanilla really comes through in the flavor with a lot of rich malt and chocolate. There’s a nuttiness as well and a slight moderate sweetness up front that builds into a moderately strong sweetness before fading. The whole combination reminds one of Little Debbie Nutty Bars. The finish has a moderate bitterness and a low alcohol warmth.”

Overall: “The vanilla works well overall and isn’t overpowering. Nice malt complexity. The sweetness with the big vanilla and chocolate makes it come off a bit like a chocolate bar—and that’s a good thing.”
