Patrickctenchi (3606) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours dark brown with a huge, oatmeal coloured head. Aroma of old banana, bread, chocolate. Flavour is melted chocolate, roast, coffee and light smoke.....malty...creamy... I wasn’t expecting this....this beer is fabulous... One of the best tasting beers I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking.

Sigmund (5089) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2013
500 ml swingtop bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Dark brown colour, huge beige head. Lovely strong aroma of banana, cloves, mildly roasted malts and rye bread, a hint of chocolate. Bready flavour with mildly roasted malts and chocolate again, some cloves and banana in the background. Not too sweet. Low on hops, as normal for the style, but the roasted malts make the finish acceptable. Beautifully balanced, a very fine Dunkelweizen.

50 cl bottle.

Pours dark copper-red color with a medium sized head. Aroma of caramel, sugar, some ripe fruit notes and malts. Flavor of sugar, mild wheat notes, yeast, toffee and mild caramel notes. Decent.

Picked this bottle up on a whim, and I’m glad I did! Very pleasant and drinkable wheat variety. Malt compliments the wheat very nicely. - smooth -top notes toasty - highly carbonated -

rondphoto (1948) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Opaque black-brown with an over-active head at the beginning, swirls of lace. I can’t tell if my bottle is old, or if it is the expected flavor, but after a typical toasted caramel onset, the flavor takes on a yeasty sourness that doesn’t complement it at all. Drinkable, but not for me.

Marstonlad (412) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Looks nice, the color is very dark, nearly black, and the head large and frothy. The head also lasts long. Aroma has maltiness, mostly dark malts, and even a little roasty notes. Some typical fruity and yeasty notes appear but not very much. The taste is malty and a little roasty with fruity notes. Palate is light; the carbonation somewhat lively. Overall, a much darker beer than a typical dunkelweizen, both in color and in taste. Still very drinkable but lacks character.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
#514 Das dunkelste HW, das ich kenne. Hefig und röstmalzig im Aroma. Im Antrunk dann hefig-malzig mit Röstmalznoten von Kaffee und Toffee; keine Fruchtaromen. Der Abgang ist würzig, ohne beißend zu sein. Ungewöhnliches HW, das aber zu gefallen weiß! Test vom 4.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,10,10,9,10 - 9,95

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2012
The colour here is dark brown, almost black, head is medium height and frothy. Nose has banana and some caramel. Flavours are somewhat complex, it’s mostly sweet and a nice mild bitterness surfaces in the finish. A tasty beer.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 27, 2012
0,5l bottle from Sörspecialista, Budapest. Beautiful, cloudy, dark brown color ith medium, light brown head. Classic hefeweizen odor with some cocoa flavour. The simple banana weizen aroma is supplement with a special chokolate, cocoa and coffee flavour. Yeasty and grainy. Dry, a bit sour taste. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation. Perky coffee and cocoa finish. It’s an interesting beer. It’s like a mixture of a stout and a hefeweizen. I think, it’s a good idea to combine the yeasty, banana flavour with the chocolate malt.

A classic dunkel, dark and roasty while still light on the palate. Should have broken out a weizen glass for this rather than the handy pint.
