Bottle poured a cloudy dark brown with a large lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar, bananas and a hint of clove. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sweet malt, brown sugar and a hint of spice with a crisp clean finish.

Bottle.50cl. Good dunkel weissbier, but not the best, a bit too dry and the body is not that full, it needs a bit of sweetness to be just that.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Boa cerveja de trigo escura. Coloração vinho bem escuro. Espuma presente, densa e caramelada. Cheiro de cravo, suave. Sabor levemente amargo, grãos torrados com um leve tom de caramelo. Não é tão boa quanto a de trigo clara nem tão gostosa quanto a concorrente Paulaner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy dark brown with a big mostly lasting light brownish head. Aroma of malt and some wheat, slightly smoky. Flavour of roasted malt, caramel, wheaty and yeasty, bitter hops. Malty bit sweet finish with a slight coffee touch. A good but bit too sweet Dunkelweizen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with large, foamy tan head. Nose is toasted malt, wheat, molasses. The flavor is rather musty, spicy with almost a peppery note, overlying banana, and chocolate. Rather sweet. Finish is somehow tongue coating. Not bad stuff.

Bottle, 500ml. A dark brown colour with a large foaming head. Aromas of wheat and malt. Taste is quite malty, with some wheat, chocolate and plum noticeable. High carbonation. A sweet, slightly bitter finish with citrus. Fairly tasty.

Looks great with its sehr dunkel colour, but is a big let down. Very bland in taste. I much prefer the Hefeweizen version. This one really is nicht besonder gut, I’m afraid!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle: Been looking forward to this one, courtesy of an LCBO gift pack, and served in an Erdinger glass. Tremendous aroma rich with anise, coriander, pomegranate, roasted malts, and burnt sugar. Poured deep black with red edges, decent sized head. The flavour, unfortunately, disappoints by being heavily muted with a light mouthfeel. You can dig and find some black cherry, roasted malt, and black licorice but it’s way too far in the background.

My bottle said "Hefeweizen Dark" on it. Pours a nice brown with ruby highlights and a solid off-white head. The aroma was wheat, banana and some citrus fruits. The flavor had a nice wheaty start that transitioned into citrus with a mild hoppy finish. I didn’t pull that much in the way of the porter stylings from this beer, just tasted like a hefe-weizen to me.

Pours nice and has a decent head that stays. Has the appearance of a dark beer but comes across much lighter. Numerous subtle taste with chocalate and carmel standing out, overall a very good beer. Finshes smooth and leaves you wanting another....a definite re-try!
