COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is, in fact, a wheat beer. Beneath its rich, dark exterior and cascading head, you will find a classic unfiltered wheat presentation fused with the smooth, roasty, chocolate-like characteristics of the dark wheat malt. With a finish this unnervingly smooth, even a black sheep starts to feel normal again.

Bottle from Jake’s in Sheboygan. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma has bakers chocolate and a grainy smell. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate and wheat. A bit thin and watery. Finishes quickly as well. Easy to tell that this was the base for the Joe brew -- which was at least twice as good.

Tap at Old Fashioned. Opaque brown-black body. Thin, oily head. Sugary sweet chocolate aroma. Pretty insipid, amateur offering. Chocolate malt overload on top of a watery, bland body. Almost and extract feel, overly sweet and underattenuated. One-dimensional, dirinkable, but sub par. Schwarz-Dunkel..not much wheat.

Draft. Malt and hay aroma. Dark black color. Taste is very heavy on roasted malt. Not a lot else. A little too much carbonation for me but a nice light beer for summer.

Dark and frothy head. Weak nose, but mainly roasted malt. Some typical wheat beer smell. Taste is banana and clove followed by a roasted nut and chocolate, though not as strong as in a stout. I haven’t had too many examples of this style of beer. This was like a more refreshing stout, a stout for warmer times. Decent, hit the spot when I had it. Versatility remains to be seen.

Poured a nearly black color with a light beige head and lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts and a slight fruity twinge. Taste was mainly of roasted malts - somewhat coffee and chocolate flavors predominated. I could not easily detect any wheat clove flavoring - it was fairly hidden. Palate was decent. Overall, not a baaaad brew although I didn’t really experience much of the wheat supposedly there.

On tap at the Roman Coin in Milwaukee. Pours thick coffee black. Flavor is slightly bitter and quite roasted with a medium heavy mouthfeel. Bitter water finish. Not bad but a bit too roasted for me.

Dark pour small tan head some lacing. Flavor is a bit off to me a touch funky roasty some bread... I’ll avoid it in the future.

A solid beer for the style. Color was a dark brown with red hughs on the edge with a light tan 1 finger head which did stick around thanks to the wheat. Aroma hits you with mild wheat up front followed by some chocolate and finishing with some light roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts with some mild sweetness in the middle of the palate. Finishes a little grainy on the tongue and had a light to medium mouthfeel with heavy carbonation.
