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 BBQs - 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.

Bottle. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with just a whisp of head. Aroma is relatively mild with some sweet chocolate notes. Chocolatey roast flavor with a dry mild bitter finish. Very highly carbonated and effervescent. Presents more like a porter as there is very little wheat character in this one. Not bad, would be more interesting with some more prevalent yeast character or a second note to go with the dark roasted malt.

weihenweizen (1768) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Translucent medium brown with one finger head. Aroma is cocoa/some coffee, medium body, medium carbonation, and thin small-bubble lacing. Taste is rich cocoa, roasty, and some herbal hops,

pringel (3) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014 does not count
Very little head, great nose of chocolate and coffee. Nice dark brown almost black color. Taste leaves more to be desired very sweet and malty with very little hop presence to equal it out. Mouth feel has a lingering sugary almost syrup feeling. Might be much better as a nitro or on tap for more carbonation.

milwaukeebeer (44) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Interesting d-weiss. Picked up notes of chocolate, alcohol and a slight hint of licorice. The appearance is as expected, opaque and unfiltered. The taste is unexpectedly complex, quite a symphony. Banana, chocolate, again a slight hint of licorice and the warming of the alcohol on the back end. The mouthfeel is reminiscent of Edelweiss Dunkel Weissbier to my palate, not identical but very similar. Overall a very good brew.

sawbuck (341) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Notes of chocolate, bread, and roasted malt.Deep brown color with a frothy tan head. Roasted sweet malt up front, Notes of coffee and chocolate, but mild in flavor. Sliky mouthfeel, finishes with same sweetness, and then a faint dry bitternss sets in. Interesting beer.

Dark brown/black color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of malt/wheat, some clove, & cocoa/chocolate; Flavor of malt/wheat, some yeast, caramel, bananas, and dark chocolate; Has porter/stout qualities - pretty decent.

Dragonfly1 (494) - Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Engine oil black. Aroma is a nice rich roasted malt and chocolate combo. Taste starts heavy, roasted, chocolate cake, espresso, then abruptly turns thin and has a wheat-like tart finish. I think the dark malts ultimately overwhelm any flavor nuance of the light wheat.

shrubber85 (7732) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Banana and chocolate malt aroma - hint of charcoal. Very dark brown with moderate head. Charcoal, dark chocolate, and roasted wheat malt flavor. Mildly bitter herbal finish. A nice beer but tastes more like a schwarzbier/stout than a dunkelweizen - intensity of the malt covers up any phenols that might be present.

Barnoloid (218) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Draft pour at The Publican. Interesting hybrid style wheat beer with a dull chocolate malt taste. Slightly roasted note with a porter-esque mouthfeel. Interesting, falls off a little near the end but solid. Has a slight anise feel on the back end as this warms.

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle: Rubied-black with a tall, oatmeal head. Chocolate powder, roast aroma. Taste is sweet, chocolate malt, cream. Tasty....though more along the lines of a sweet porter.
