3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: Some kind of cranked up sweetened Dunkel Weizen. Meh.
How: Bottle 750ml corked & caged. Consumed 3 months after purchase from a busy Albany store, no date on bottle, not sure how fresh this is.
The look: Dark brown body topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose is overripe brown bananas, cloves-ish spiciness. Taste is browned bananas, raisin bread, molasses, cloves, some caramel, distant chocolate, some plums. Basically this beer tastes like a big fat dunkel weizen to which molasses was added. Nothing offensive about this beer but Iím just not a fan of those spicy sweet overripe flavors that beers like this one bring. Or maybe it was just the wrong beer to accompany my Sushi meal, I never know what beer to choose when I eat Sushi or Filet Mignon, nobody told me life would be this hard.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not great, tbh; first impression is of a slightly flatter, slightly wheatier, slightly more astringent Baltic Porter. chocolate notes present, clove barely detectable, roast flavor is more than slight. Interesting but not a beer to turn to

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is all dark fruit and molasses. Flavor is simlar. Some dark fruit, brown sugar and dark bread. I think I got a bad bottle b/c there was no loud pop when I got the cork off so this seems really flat. Iím sure fresh this is even better.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful ruby hue. Definitely taste belgian and german elements going on. Cocoa, amaretto, nuts, raisins. Slightly chewy mouthfeel. Very interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber brown with a ruby hue and a large creamy light tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast, dough, floral hop, chocolate, molasses, lots of dried fruit sweetness. Taste has more roast than I was expecting with tons of yeast character- clove, dough, earthy funk. The finish has a light funky bitterness and some tea leaf qualities. Nice sharp carbonation with a silky texture. The aroma is a little dull and leaves me wanting something more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at RnH, 8/8/11
Aroma: The nose has some caramel, molasses, toffee, wheat, and a bit of roast
Appearance: The pour is fairly dark, brownish, with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet and malty, with caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruits present
Palate: This one has a medium body, it is fairly smooth and drinkable, with a slight stickiness
This one turned out to be a solid dark wheat beer. It is a little bit of the characteristics of a dubbel, and some of the characteristics of a dunkelweisen as well. Solid stuff, rather high on the sweet side, but solid none-the-less.

Draft. Pours amber brown with an off white head. Toasty and wheaty aroma, with light spices and a light roast. The flavor is lightly roasted, with spices and some earthy notes on a wheaty base. Pretty good.
