The dark, top fermented speciality. Typical wheat beer character with a perfect malt-aromatic bouquet.

From a larger flip top bottle, larger by american 12 oz standards. Smell is mild malt. first taste is laid back mild dark beer thing. Look is very nice appealing dark beer thing happening. $4 at vintage for about a half liter. In the glass this stuff bubbles all over, almost over the top of my double 12 oz clear heavy mug. Mild carbonation, could use more. Chocolate aroma punches thru. Yes, a big rocky choco foamy head. Aroma is metallic at times. Yes, a continuous mild flavorful event without much ill attribute. Nicely reserved. Finish is all of the above, good overall mild dark beer experience. Now I can see why this is the original. I like this stuff, even if it is dull at times, it leaves no surpizes and I don’t care for big rude surprises, heheh. So there you have it, a decent friendly dark beer with no ill manners.

Bottle on the what the hell was I thinking tour of Bavaria. Dark brown beer lasting beige head. Esters on the aroma. Bit of ashtray in the flavour. It’s ok but the ashtray is too much for me.

Bottle. The look is clear, brownish in color, and has a tan head. The smell is malty, chocolate, fruity, banana, and dessert. The taste is wheat, malt, spices, and not bad.

Erzengel (7124) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2014
Sehr milder Antrunk, schön samtig-weich. Der Hauptteil wird etwas malziger, aber auch irgendwie scharf. Dabei trotzdem weich-samtig. Die Hefe vermischt sich angenehm mit den leichten Röstmalzaromen, die auch im Nachgeschmack noch deutlich zu spüren sind. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine röstmalzig-hefige Note.
--> Eigentlich ein sehr leckeres Bier, wenn nicht diese komische Schärfe im Hauptteil wäre…

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.

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.
