3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good stuff that’d be a lot better if not so cold. Served with a smallish, tan, foamy, thick, creamy head that slowly settled and lots of sheeting lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is malt and roast. Flavor’s like nose, with good balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, slightly long, and very drinkable. Again there’d be a lot more interesting things here if it weren’t so cold. Still, good stuff.

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

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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