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.

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.

Roasty, toasty, crunchy (a little grainy), malty and good. Bits of chocolate in the aroma. Goes down easy. Enjoyed on tap at Hops Haven -- adjacent to 3 Sheeps Brewery.

Pours a dark brown. Thin light-brown head. A bit of hint of bananas. Thin mouth feel. A tart and cardboard finish.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Pitch Black, Big Foamy Head, Decent Lacing. Light Toasted Aroma. Toasted Malt, Earthy Hops, Bitter Finish. I’d say more like Killian’s Irish Stout than Black Wheat. Nonetheless, easily Drinkable and Enjoyable. This Baaad Boy coming from Sheboygan, WI... Pretty Decent. Worth A Try.

12 ounce bottle. I liked this beer, but I would not classify it as a Dunkelweiss. It is more of a Schwartzbier. Sweet aroma, black in color, white head. Sweet flavor, caramel finish.

scarletfire65 (1307) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour with a big mocha head. The aroma is creamy iced coffee. Tastes sweet up front, with some roasty coffee and bitter cocoa powder flavors developing mid swallow. Finishes light bodied, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Smooth palate, but no real yeasty wheat or dunkel characteristics. More like a schwarzbier.

BeerInHeaven (359) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2015
pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is malt, sweet dark fruit, like raisins. Creamy mouth feel. Taste is sweet with a hint of coffee. Fairly quick finish but with both sweet and bitter linger. Seems more like a sweet stout. At any rate, pretty good. I like it.

Bottle. Black with a light brown medium sized head. Roasted malt, cocoa powder, soy sauce and old graham crackers. Has a medium light sweetness with a soy sauce after taste. Body is medium with fizzy, oily feel.

Sask89 (507) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
On tap at Hopleaf. Pours a very dark brown colour with a small off white head. Aroma has a little coffee in it, roasted wheat malts and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet and malty throughout, though it’s a little lighter due to the wheat malt. Light to medium body, thinner on the palate, and softer carbonation. Overall a unique and enjoyable and brew.
