3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very dark body, even for a dunkel weizen, with a thin white head. Smells of dense caramel. Taste is banana and dark malts. Mellow and drinkable, but nothing great in any characteristic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep, dark brown pour with an unyielding tan head. Looks amazing. Aroma isn’t as great. Cloves, dark bread, vegetables. Hmm. Flavor is equally underwhelming. More bitter than your average dunkleweizen. Not getting any tasty fruit notes. This tastes really old, but the date on the bottle tells me it should be alright. Maybe it wasn’t stored properly, not sure. Mouthfeel is good for the style. Not sure whats going on here, but this is not as great as I was hoping it would be. Still decent though.

bottle - pours dark brown with a medium light brown frothy head. The aroma was caramel, banana, cookie and raisin with a faint bit of spice. The flavor was reminiscent of a stout, fruity with a slight hint of soy sauce, interesting brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Banana and caramel malt aroma. Cloudy brown-orange color with moderate head. Slightly sweet banana, clove, and caramel malt flavor with just a hint of smoke in the finish. Nice body. Excellent - a top of the line dunkelweizen (but what else would you expect from Andechs).
