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.

Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa. Some ash, coffee, and a hint of graham cracker sweetness. Palate is bitter roasted malt and coffee forward. Ash, light sweetness of graham cracker, and some dark chocolate. A weird peppery note on the finish. Not bad, but not a very good Dunkelweizen.

Ughsmash (7006) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
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.

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown - cola pour with a small rocky head. Cold press coffee and dark chocolate on the nose. Taste is semi-sweet, not overly bitter but a touch of roasty bitter. Pretty darn good.

badgerben (4363) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Courtesy of Skyview. Hazy gold color with a medium head. No aroma. Slightly smoky flavor with a harsh wheat character.

nuplastikk (4132) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2013
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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at The Stone. Dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, peat, wheat and a bit of sugar. Taste of chocolate and wheat with roasted malt, a hint of frit and faint bitterness on the finish. Not really a dunkleweizen.

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Very dark brown. Opaque in the weak light of the bar. Roasted aroma is clean but muted flavors and slightly sour finish. (tap at Old Fashioned, Madison)

Aroma is dark fruit, wheat and slight roasted notes. The flavor is mildly roasted/dry malts, dark fruit, fruit and a tart/tangy finish.
