Perhaps the longest named beer Iíve ever had the opportunity to sample, this Great Dane draft has been eluding me for years. A typical Great Dane release sparkles with flavor but often feels at times like a little something is missing. Even so as far as local beers go this long time staple of the Madison scene merits a look.

Aroma / Appearance - A creamy sandy red foundation bobs in the glass. Typical of the makeup of most Great Dane beers it shows signs of life and passion. Soft caramel, cola, and chocolate gently remind the taster of its roots.

Flavor / Palate - Diet Doctor Pepper grows into a full mouthfeel. A dunkel in name only, the promising start slips into a mediocre finish. A run of the mill release shows competence but not brilliance. I would drink this again over lunch. However now that Iíve tried it once I can cross it off the list and move on.

Draft. Might have been the iced version. Very tangy brew, also very strong, lemon flavors and clove, sweet caramel. Not Aventinus.

Taster on tap at GTMW. Labeled as simply "Dunkel Wiess" [sic]. Iím assuming this is it? Totally hazy mashed banana - brown color. Good thin khaki head. Leaves great, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Slick texture, but more drying in the finish. Nice banana, dark fruit aroma in the nose. Some spice, yeasty flavors. Moderate sweet taste, lightly tangy, kind of spicy, mild bitter. Solid dunkel weizen to try.

On tap at the Hilldale Dane - Yes! The longest-named beer Iíve ever drank...I think. Hazy brown pour with a creamy thin tan head. Nose is big bready malt, some melon, pear, banana, and some yeasty spiciness. A lot going on, though itís a bit muted. Taste is a bit syrupy sweet, with banana, melon, pear, and a long, bready, yeasty clove. Slick and fairly thick with medium carbonation. Not fantastic, but pretty tasty. Worth the pour and such an awesome name.

Great pour. Tap. Pour is a rootbeer brown but opaque - pretty cool looking. Aroma is caramel and grain. Taste is slightly sweet.

Imperial pint at the downtown brewery. There was an overthetop sweetness and a strong fruit-fermentation-booziness. No carbonation whatsoever, and a bit difficult to take the whole pint glass due to the huge, sweet flavor. This one is probably best in small doses.

I never thought I was ever going to track this one down until I attended the GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy and dirty brown colored brew with an average sized tan head that slowly dissipates to a creamy top and excellent lacing. Aroma of dark banana bread, milk chocolate and a hint of clove. Taste is full bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of roasted chocolate malt, banana esters, a hint of clove and toffee. Finish is quite smooth and semi-sweet with a yeast/banana and chocolate aftertaste. Yum!

HonusWagner (1390) - Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Not the most unbelievably interesting beer Iíve ever had, I just wanted "more" in all regards. The flavors were pretty good, particularly the nice banana note that crept through in the middle and the slight powdery chocolate at the onset, but there wasnít a whole lot else to grab hold of and the beer wasnít as good as it could have been. My rating is thus a hedge between what was a very nice beer to drink and at the same time a beer I wish offered more everything.

Muddy brown pour - bubblegum and clove flavors abound in this one, with a very high sweetness - lacks the wheaty tang I like in my wiezenbocks - a bit yeasty through the middle, with notes of raisin, brown sugar, spices - decent, but I want more earthy wheat flavors.

Draft at the downtown Great Dane. Poured a murky brown color with a tan head. The aroma was attractive enough with black cherry, clove, and subdued banana notes. Medium to full bodied and dryish up front. There was plenty of clove and banana flavor accented by touches of toffee and sassafras. A somewhat detracting tart fruitiness emerged at the end.
