4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tarnished bruised brown with amber edging. Sits almost black in most light. Emensely tall, billowing sandy colored foam grows up quickly from the pour. Gets a little too big too quick, yet it’s impressive. Takes a long time to dwindle, if it all, to one solid capping of whipped froth with a light bumpyness to its surface. Strangely laced in long skinny patches.
Aroma of dry wheat and cocoa. Slightly woodish and/or dried leaves or husks and a touch of vanilla bean skins.
Taste is mild, crisp, and dryish with a dark bread crust backing, a brief standing wheaty sweetness slips across its nature. Dried wheat husk, straw, and cocoa keeps some nice additions to the flavors. Not bad, was looking for a bit more out if it but what there is quite relaxing and pleasant once a few sips have set in.
Feel is medium bodied and fairly set with a stern, bold give and take in its carbobation. A touch frothy and tenderly sweet with a nice drying effect throughout its character.
A pretty soild Dunkel. A bit on the tame side; non banana-like but worthy with its bold body and dryness of husks and cocoa. Easily sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured very clear dark brown with ruby hues coming through with direct light. A large-ish beige head that settled down to a respectable few mms. Yeasty, hoppy and malty aromas at different times, with very weak banana notes. Got extra points for aroma because there was something there that I recognised from somewhere in the past, but just couldn’t quite put my finger on. The flavour is slightly sweet and bitter, but neither is really strong or dominant. Not quite the full-bodied beer that the commercial description expounds, but it has some good qualities. It is also quite gassy, giving me some big beer burps which isn’t really a good thing. Not bad, but half a litre is more than enough at a time for me.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very thick light brown head that dissipates fairly quick. Bitter chocolatey taste. with a lingering aftertaste. Slightly yeasty flavor. Very thin body with not too much carbonation. Decent, though I prefer traditional hefe’s better.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark body, minimal head. Nice sweet roasted aroma that carries over in the flavor, but not very well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The smell of this beer reminds me of cookie dough, bad ass. Big ass light tan head on a dark ruby black body. Tastes quite lame I think. In fact, all I really get is a toasty grain taste with a little bit of spice and yeast. It’s definitely not offensive or anything, just well, lame. Overall its not bad, but I have had better wheat beers.

2.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks and smells great, but that’s about it. There is just absolutely nothing in the flavoring at all, not sweet, not anyghing. It doesn’t even really seem like I’m drinking a beer, just dark something. This score is skewed because of the two more useless aspects of the rating system.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Very dark red-brown to black with a latte head. Slightly roasty wheat and phenolic clove aromas with some sweet, juicy malts and tart lemon notes. Spicy and roasty flavours with some citric acidity, finishing with a dry floral roastyness and some lingering caramel. Slightly watery but still quite nice.
