1 pt, 9 oz bottle. Pours a very dark and opaque black with a tan, foamy head that dissipates slowly. Very strong caramel, chocolate, and banana aromas. It is medium sweet with mild flavors of caramel. It is medium in body with a slightly slick texture. Which is surprising given its dark color and sweet flavor, as I would have expected it to be a bit thicker and creamier. Carbonation is average and the finish is long. Overall, a very nice beer that I’m sure I will be drinking again in the near future.

DandyWolfFloyd (983) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Aroma - honey-malted, caramel-like, and way deep is just a bit of banana yeast notes. Appearance - very dark brown body, with a clean liquid, head sets up at about 3" and light beige in color. It fades into about a 1/2" slice. Taste - has a little marshmallow-like sweet malt, some caramelized sugars, and almost honey-like quality, and a bit of alcohol-phenol banana action. Palate - medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, long finish

A rarely good Dunkelweizen which pours a nice brown glass of ale. It has some beautiful malts in it and is an overall treat.

Malzig in der Nase, sehr herb im Trunk, im Abgang bitter, dann süß, fast etwas schokoladig - ganz nett.

I would love to be able to spend a day or a week (safely) living in Germany circa the year 1500 or so. I wonder if the beer would taste the same?
