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.

Very unique. Quite drinkable with a light body for a dark beer, but heavier flavors packed in.

Tap. Nose was roast-y and chocolate. Taste was unique, porter-like with licorice. Extremely unique and worth having more than one of.

Weak aroma of coffee with maybe a hint of chocolate. It's odd to pour a wheat that looks like a stout, but I guess that's what you get with a black wheat. Taste and drinkability are great. Good balance of hops and malt. It really is delicious.

A really good tasting beer that leaves a lively fizz on the tongue. A slightly irony taste that comes from the water adds to some of the taste depth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Very unique and really good. As smooth as any beer I’ve had. Can’t wait to see this on tap around me.

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.

Draft at the Burger Joint, Ogilve Transportation Center. Deep brown like dried blood, with just a little bit of highlighting at the bottom. A thin tan head. Has the creamy smell of a porter or milk stout. A very big taste that’s too complex to pigeonhole. Start with some Schwartzbier malt, Just a slight astringency. A bit of baker’s chocolate and again, a creamy texture. Quite filling after the Tallgrass 8-Bit I just had. Lacks the "spice" of a wheat beer, but surely offers a fine smooth texture, emphasized at the end by the return of a milk stout-ish mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours deep dark mahogany, small tan head, dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent residual and good lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashtray, a bit smokey, wheat. Flavor is medium sweet, just a bit of bitterness, fairly low acidity, rich roasty flavor, toasted dark bread, a bit of tobacco. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Very good.

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.

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.
