Bottle. Clear, dark wood in color. Faint aroma of spices, yeast, and orange. Flavors blend bread, lemon, and a bit of Belgian-style spices. Maybe a bit of grape. Not overwhelming, not bad. Very drinkable.

Bomber. Really dark ruby/brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a bit metallic, slightly gummy, but has nice peat, faint fruity esters, earth, caramel. Flavor is pretty decent. Itís predictable up front, but has many weird nuances that make an interesting mesh. Hints of cinnamon, clove, licorice, ripe fruits. The way the more metallic aspects meld with the fruity esters is a little strange. However, it ends up being drinkable.

Bottle. Rather metallic aroma. Behind the metal, some licorice and grape peel/seed. Surprisingly darker roasted flavor. Weird. I donít love it.

Thanks to Emacgee for sending this one, shared at Paulís Hoboken gathering. Brown in color with a small off white head. Aroma: caramel, light chocolate, wheat and spices. Taste is pretty interesting with the caramel and chocolate wheat character I associate with dunkels, with the spices and light tartness in wits. Itís a bit light bodied though, watery. Still interesting and enjoyable to try, thanks Ethan.

Andrew shared this one while playing cards a while back. This one is more dunkel than white with is grainy aroma and wheat flavors. Pours brown with red hues. Red fruit flavors like cherry. Sort of flat and thin unfortunately.

On tap at Flying Saucer in Raleigh, with Chris. Very good brew, bold yet smooth flavor. Yerm.

Poured a dark brown that allows some light. 2 finger creamy tan head. The nose is a bit grainy, lightly sweet, some alcohol evident, chocolate, a bit fruity. The flavor is grainy, a bit sweet, some chocolate, very light alcohol, a bit watery. Decent mouthfeel, satisfying carbonation, crisp, finish is initially sweet, some crispiness, and then grainy. Pretty good local NC brew.
