COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Blind Pig Dunkel Weizen

This is a medium-bodied, unfiltered dark wheat beer with a smooth, gently sweet character. The flavor has notes of chocolate and caramel combined with the cereal malt flavor contributed by malted wheat. Blind Pig is a very unique beer with few other examples of the German Dunkel Weizen style brewed in the Northwest, and certainly none as tasty.

Bottled 11/2010 Poured to NB globe. A: Pours a chocolate beer with little head development. Thin film of tiny bubbles, which are light graham in color. S: Chocolate malts, dark grains. Hollow grainy. Little/no hop nose. Slightly creamy scent. T: Yum! I was surprised by the nice toastiness of this beer. I admittedly had low expectations, which likely fosters my admiration, but this beer is nice. Light cocoa, malts, milky flavor. Touch of a metallic finish on this. As I take more his off this, I like it less. Has a bit of a burnt flavor as it warms. Almost a sour flavor in here. M: Decent medium body with medium/low carbonation provides a effervescence I didn’t anticipate. Nice. D: Very drinkable. Again, I was surprised by this beer, and would be happy to recommend to others. Serving type: bottle 02-15-2011

Muddy dark brown. Chocolate is big. Med bodied and slight bitter hop. Slightly mild carbonation. Nice body throughout. Not as good as bayern dragon breath.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of some chill trader bro. Pours a fairly clear reddish black appearance with a brown head. Fairly roasted malty, nutty, light apple fruity, caramel, toffee aroma. Caramel, roasted pecan, toffee, a touch smoky, light fruity flavor that finishes a touch sweet. Ok.

Overall OK, but a bit of a vinegar after taste. Probably wouldn't buy in volume.

SamP01 (566) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a dark cloudy brown head, a medium beige head some light lacing. Aroma and taste is of dark lightly toasted caramel malt, yeast and some grain flavors. A medium body with light carbonation. Finish is lightly toasted caramel malt, yeast and grain. Aroma and taste seem a bit mild for the style, but still an ok drinking brew.

More bitter than I generally like my browns, kind of like a brown that wants to become a porter someday. Flavorful nonetheless. Light tan head. Rich dark color. Sweet and slightly bitter.

It was terrible. Just not my kind of beer. I hated every aspect of this beer. Very thick and foamy.

Dark brown caramel, nearly black, with off white head and lacing. Light aroma of...cinnamon donuts? Palate is light-bodied with mild nut and caramel flavors. Palate is a little watery.

Bottle. Pours a clear and very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is quite malty with some caramel and toasty elements to it. Taste is light and smooth and slightly sweet and toasty, but not all that special. OK.
