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.

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.

Dark brown with thick, creamy tan head. Great lacing. Roast, chocolate, mild caramel, and earth aroma. Full bodied, flavor like aroma, creamy texture. Mild bitterness- malt dominant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at c.1880. Poured very deep brown with a creamy, well-retained khaki head. The aroma picked up a nice blend of roasted black and chocolatey malts paired with some toasted wheat and grains.. well-presented. The flavor found well-roasted black malt and coffee notes at the core, with lightly tangy wheat, ripe banana, and cloves laced throughout.. prickly carbonation joined in on the finish. Medium-ish bodied and dry on the palate.. smooth feel across the middle.. overall a very good drinker.

On tap at the Nitty Gritty - Pours black, though not like oil with a thin head. Nose is roasty, with some chocolate and sweet wheat notes. Not getting dunkelweizen from this at all, but it’s pleasant. Taste is the same...smooth and roasty with a sweetness, finishing with a bit of bitter roast. Hints of coffee grounds. Fairly thin.

Surprising for a wheat beer, and in particular, where I found it - on tap at a new BBQ place in Grafton (called BBQ’s - old Paramount location.) Served in 12oz. It looks more like a porter or stout, but has a smoothness like a a wheat bear. Roasted grain and coffee notes. Medium body. Not bad.

Pretty good stuff that’d be a lot better if not so cold. Served with a smallish, tan, foamy, thick, creamy head that slowly settled and lots of sheeting lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is malt and roast. Flavor’s like nose, with good balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, slightly long, and very drinkable. Again there’d be a lot more interesting things here if it weren’t so cold. Still, good stuff.
