3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was hopeful on this one, I really like a good dunkel....unfortunately it was lacking intensity, and really lacking the wheat and hefe component, no vanilla or banana. It will get you by, but I just wasn’t that impressed and see it as an average dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark and opaque, with a head that gives up pretty quickly. This drinks with a chocolate sweetness, and a smoky edge on top. There’s nary a hint of any yeast or wheaty grist in this. In a blind test, I’d peg this a smoked porter perhaps. Enjoyable, but a little off of the dunkelweizen label. (#4595, 5/13/2012)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a dark opaque brown with light amber notes and a thick two finger yellow head and a few lacing rings. The nose is a very cereal and grainy with nice chocolate notes and a mild hop. This is an odd nose for a Dunkel. The taste has a delicious, chewy malt with good chocolate notes and nutty,woody notes. This is a tasty brew overall.

Tampa. Fl - Total Wines - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown chocolate-like pour, slight off- white head, brief lacing. Aroma has a hint of chocolate and brown sugar. Flavor is slightly sweet with hints of day old unsweetened cheap coffee, a smidgen of bananas, some cloves. Not overflowing with flavor. Medium thick mouthfeel. Does in a pinch.

12oz bottle: Pours a mostly transparent dark mahogany with copper hues and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a dry toasted nutty nose with some doughy yeasty notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and dark wheat sweetness balanced with a touch of clove spice before a drier bittersweet finish. True to style and drinkable.
