From a bottle. Pleasant roasted aroma, pours dark, bitter chocolate flavours, smooth with a lingering coffee aftertaste. I like it!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml brown bottle as "Brick Kiln Wheat". Label states 5.3% ABV. Pours an opaque very dark brown into the glass with a medium beige head. I get a strong peanut aroma with roasted caramel malts and a soft smoky presence. Palate is medium bodied with a fullish mouthfeel but it is not nearly sweet enough in favour to be truly representative of the style. There is a rather unpleasant smoky bacon aftertaste which really shouldn’t be there in my opinion. Lacks the estery yeast presence (banana, clove etc) of the best German Dunkels (which are cheaper to buy over here than this). I am aware that this runs counter to most other reviews so I am prepared to accept that this was an off bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma smells of bricks ironically, slightly earthy and clay-like, but with malts too. Appearance is a transparent brown with medium head. Taste is sweet carrot, malt, and toffee flavours, slightly estery. Palate is pleasant with a mild bitter tang.

500ml bottle. Black in colour with tan foam on top. Caramel, toffee, vanilla and malt in the aroma while the beer is light on the palate and in the mouth. Good interpretation of the style. Well rounded beer with a nice long finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a small head.
Banana and doughy wheat are prominent in the aroma along with some caramel and brown sugar. Textbook dunkelweizen aroma really.
Flavours instead focus on nutty malt with some banana showing later, along with some wheat.
Carbonation is a little too high.

Draught sample. Clear dark appearance with a decent thick head. Plenty of aroma with hints of sweet banana and clove. Smooth round palate with malts coming thought mid palate, too sweet for my liking but can see why others might like it.
