2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Apex, Portland
Dark brown color. Dusty aroma, caramel. Overly sweet caramel flavor, with low bitterness, and that stale character of American Dunkelweisse; quite fruity though. There is some alcohol perception.
Difficult to drink, cloying.

On tap @ Bear Republic. Pours thin very dark brown with thin light mocha head. Aroma is dry chocolate malt with slight oaky notes on the back. Taste is clean, light chocolate malt up front, then dry and more chocolate on the finish. Surprisingly hop-free for a winter warmer. Good chocolate flavor though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tap 25. I was surprised this was listed as a Dunkelweizen. It pours a dark reddish brown with an off white head. The aroma is veyr toasted with some chocolate and cherry cola. The flavor is rich with heavy dark fruits, raisins and plum with a dense bready malt background and cocoa. It has a nice herbal, raisin finish. Warming and tasty. Seems more like a Dunkler Bock to me. Not a lot of yeast character.
