3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells biscuity and warm. Reminds me of breakfast. Pours a dark woodsy color. Deep brown with some red when you hold it in the light. I feel like there are a lot of flavors involved, but they’re subtle. A little chocolate, a little caramel, a little toast. Coats the palate pretty well and sticks around longer than expected. This is my first dunkelweizen so I’m not sure I’m worried about the lack of yeast everyone is talking about, though I see how that could bring this beer to another level.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Now branded as Boulder Bend. Very dark, hard to see through, hazy and gritty. Burnt grain and some smoke, little flat with the yeast character but it doesn’t take away either. Chocolate notes, grainy body, like a nice toasted cereal. Light bodied, nice dark roast, very good all around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Color was amber-auburn. Aroma was bready and very wheaty; hint of earth/citrus. Flavor was surprisingly dominated by a toasted malt like presence. Wheaty and pretty dry overall. A bit too dry for the style for me.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy brown color with lacy head. Silky mouthfeel and astringent bready flavor. Taste would be helped tremendously if a good yeast was more prominent.
