2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa. Some ash, coffee, and a hint of graham cracker sweetness. Palate is bitter roasted malt and coffee forward. Ash, light sweetness of graham cracker, and some dark chocolate. A weird peppery note on the finish. Not bad, but not a very good Dunkelweizen.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Very dark, black color. No wheat aroma at all. Taste is murky, thick, high viscosity. Over carbonated as well. Way, way too much of a good thing. This tastes like homebrew gone terribly wrong.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very unique. Quite drinkable with a light body for a dark beer, but heavier flavors packed in.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Nose was roast-y and chocolate. Taste was unique, porter-like with licorice. Extremely unique and worth having more than one of.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at The Beer Market in Bolingbrook, IL. Pours a rich, dark brown with a creamy looking tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, some wheat malt presence. Flavor is roasted malts, some bitter chocolate and coffee notes. Medium bodied with a nice smooth, creamy texture. I’d like a little more wheat presence, but this is drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Burger Joint, Ogilve Transportation Center. Deep brown like dried blood, with just a little bit of highlighting at the bottom. A thin tan head. Has the creamy smell of a porter or milk stout. A very big taste that’s too complex to pigeonhole. Start with some Schwartzbier malt, Just a slight astringency. A bit of baker’s chocolate and again, a creamy texture. Quite filling after the Tallgrass 8-Bit I just had. Lacks the "spice" of a wheat beer, but surely offers a fine smooth texture, emphasized at the end by the return of a milk stout-ish mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Deep brown with mahogany highlights. Dusty roasty aroma,light mouthfeel, with the dark malts totally overwhelming any wheat traits. This drinks more like a light stout.
