A really good tasting beer that leaves a lively fizz on the tongue. A slightly irony taste that comes from the water adds to some of the taste depth.

Brownish black pour from draft at statestreet brats in Madison. White head. Chocolate watery aroma. Good full taste for low ABV. Chocolate and malt flavor. Not bad.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
