3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Dickinsonbeer’s Hoboken gathering - fizzy clear brown beer - sticky lace - aroma of spices and strong nuttiness - there is a similar nutty character in the flavor, along with some very light spices - none of the earthy complexities of most good dunkelweizens - nothing stand out here, but tasty enough.

Bottled at Paul’s gathering. Mild, roast and spice aroma. Light cocoa. Flavor has a spicy yeast, strong wheat, and pumpkin notes. Carbonation is a bit high, and the beer is a bit lactic.

Drank this about a week ago with some peeps. Was not too impressed at all. Aroma has light cocoa, butter, and a bit of yeast. Flavor was watery, mild cocoa, nuts, and a bit of yeasty water. Meh. Went down very easy but not a very enjoyable beer.

Bottle at Paul’s Hoboken Gathering: Brown with good clarity and a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate/vanilla, diacetyl and a hint of licorice. Interesting nose. Light mouthfeel with a nice malt flavor. Toasted cocoa character- chocolaty without being sweet. Very light roast in the finish. Surprisingly clean.

Draft at Federal in Durham. Dark brown but I can see a bit of light through. Very chocolatey in the aroma department. Flavor is also dominated by chocolate but there’s a pleasant citrusy finish as well. Succeeds in being rich and chocolatey while still holding onto some witbier characteristics.

Dunkel-WHAT!! Had this beer not long ago @ the tasting room. The aroma is very friuty w\ spicy alcohol notes. It pours dark caramely w\ a creamy off-white head. it tastes nutty with subtle hints of a belgian white. Very light on the palate making it a thirst quencher. A nicely crafted, innovative beer. Thanks guys!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown body encircled by a ring of beige-colored bubbles.
Smell: It’s a hybrid! Alien scents of malted coriander, earthy brown sugar, sauteed fruits, yeast and dried citrus peel.
Taste: Brown malts with nutty brown sugar and a mild sweetness. Molasses-coated coriander. Hint of fruit. Some spicy, citrusy hints. Not much bitterness. A malty, mangled finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A nice idea, but, in all honesty, I’d rather just have either the white or the dunkel.
