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)

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Bottle. Poured a very cloudy deep brown color with a thin tan head, minimal lacing. Taste of caramel, dough and cereal. Great carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Nice dunkel!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel malt aroma. Fairly dark brown, more than I would expect. Flavors are very roasted, more so than I would want for this style. Not like a traditional dunkelweizen, and the estery clove, banana flavors are not noticeable at all. I would call this more an american dark wheat ale. Not bad nonetheless and has good malt presence.

Poured a cloudy brownish amber with an offwhite head and some floaties in it. Aroma is caramel, nuts, cereal, toast, and very faint coffee. Taste is caramel, sour, coffee, with a sweet and sour finish.

Not do bad. Quite weizen alike but not much flavour, just sweet aroma and some clove hints.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep brown coloring with a frothy head. Aroma is mild; includes malt, wheat, caramel, a little yeast. Thin, light bodied palate. Flavor is slightly grassy, mildly malty, and a little sour. Finishes with a slight but lingering bitterness. Overall not a great representative of the style.

12 ounce bottle. Pours brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel, and a bit of hops. Taste is wheat, citrus, yeast, caramel, and chocolate. Pretty tasty.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The nose is a nice marbled rye, a real bready malt. The flavor is somewhat similar yet is somewhat inhibited. It is a clear dark brown color, light carbonation with a weak head. A sweet character with light hops. Definite chocolatey wheat after taste. 8.75 BD
