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.

A solid beer for the style. Color was a dark brown with red hughs on the edge with a light tan 1 finger head which did stick around thanks to the wheat. Aroma hits you with mild wheat up front followed by some chocolate and finishing with some light roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts with some mild sweetness in the middle of the palate. Finishes a little grainy on the tongue and had a light to medium mouthfeel with heavy carbonation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle. Poured dark brown to black with tan head. Very rich in flavor. More hazelnut than chocolate and very smooth. Pretty active in terms of carbonation and mouthfeel. Not sure if I want it to be darker or not ... it works as is.

Taster. Nice looking hazy-brown/orange look with small white head. Aroma of banana, wheat, and other grains. Taste is sweet, wheaty with some fruit (especially banana).

3/1 - Bottle. Very smooth beer with an easy pourand very light texture. Very dark coloured beer with a malty head. Smell is coffee and chocolate, not very strong. Went down like an iced coffee. Very smooth and light, with a coffee aftertaste. Good beer.
