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.

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.

Nice beer, if not what I’m used to with a black wheat. Pours a dark brown-black with a small manila head. Flavor is primarily dark chocolate, with a creamy body. Not much spice flavor. Pretty solid.
