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.

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.

Pours a soft ruby copper with one finger of crackling off white head. Nose is not so hot, acidic grain and soy sauce. Estery with some notes of cacao and grain. Slightly saline flavor and grainy notes followed by some caramel and chocolate Light body.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2012
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)

patricks110 (2425) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2012
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.

PorterPounder (7332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2012
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.

Cybercat (5120) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Malty aroma has a subtle fruity underpinning and a hint of cloves. It pours a dark, rather hazy mahogany with a decent, fine-bubbled, light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor has a malty core and fruity, caramel and nutty notes. Smooth Texture has average body but a good amount of fizz.
