Shaney (2429) - 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 (319) - 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.

dfinney23 (1436) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2012
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.

Sdaniel90 (226) - Estado de México, MEXICO - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a beautiful, murky copper/ruby colour. Very drinkable yet not too watery. Nice roasted character with a nice, bitter finish. Good beer.

BeerViking (2096) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2012 50cl flip-top from Hol’Ab in Lüneburg. Dark brown with a thick cream head, typical banana weiß nose but with an intriguing hint of cocoa. More cocoa in the mouth, plus roast malt and a hint of liquorice. Banana, malt and some dry peppery hops in the finish. A nice dunkelweiß.

Beerenberger (1278) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Aroma is malty with a hint of bananas. A dark brown pour with a none lasting beige head and no lacing. Taste is sweet malts and grain. Medium-light bodied and minimal carbonation. Overall, this is an enjoyable beer that I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MichaelAwesome (3023) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2012
0,5 l swing top bottle shared with McTapps. Pours deep brown nearly black. Has some aroma of coffee and malt but in the end it´s just a nothing saying beer which can´t take the decision if it is a stout or a black weizen. Below average.

McTapps (3022) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Aroma of malted coffee, flavour of ripe hazelnuts. Good taste on the long hand but quite thin and watery on the other way.
