Probably the first dark weizen I’ve ever had. It had a stout like taste and mouthfeel with a bit of the spiciness of a weizen. The smell also has some of that spiciness with a dose of caramel. Nice!

I was disppapointed, for me this beer was way to sour. I didnt expect this after reading the label, I will not drink this any more

Aroma of ripe bananas, tomatoes and coffee. Dark brown body with brown head. Rich dark chocolate, coffee taste, a touch of bread sweetness, but tastes more like a schwarzbier than a dunkelweizen to me, though the bottle may not have been super fresh.Still, quite enjoyable.

A nice offering. Pours black with brown sediment and off white head. Aromas of bubblegum and banana. Very nice. Flavors are sweet grains and some banana. Also earthiness and coffee. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into Weizen-glass. Very dark brown color, looks cloudy. Impressive beige creamy head, good lacing.
Very pleasant maltiness in the nose. It reminds of freshly broken bar of a fine dark chocolate bar, some roasted cocoa beans here. All of this absolutely beats a typical phenolic Weizen’s profile - so its almost unperceptible.
As for taste its a bit more strict than I expected, but really balanced. Strong flavor of dark chocolate again. Pleasantly dry, that makes it very drinkableю Distinctive bitterness in aftertaste. Medium body (wish it was a bit more dense). Crisp and smooth a the same time. Moderate carbonation. For me - excellent beer for any occasion.

Flaske delt med Børge på Cardinal okt-13: storboblet beige skum som legger seg pent. Servert for kald men når temperaturen i glasset stiger kommer alle nyansene frem. Lite aroma men hint av sjokolade og lett ristet frøbrød. Mye maltsmak, sjokolade. Vandig avslutning. Middels munnfylde.

The light wheaty taste with a touch of banana sweetness belies the dark appearance. Creamy, roasted malt bitterness in the finish is welcome.

Bottle at Cardinal Pub, Stavanger. Great looking dunkelweiz with a nice head. Quite more bitter than most dunkelweizen, with some chocolate, coffee and perhaps even a hint of smoke. Interesting beer, but not as drinkable as most dunkelweizens...

0.5l bottle. Dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and some smoke.It really has the banana-like flavor of a typical weizen with caramel, smoke and a hint of roastyness. Interesting beer.
