COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Expect this beer to pour the deapest black body topped by an opulent head of lip smacking foam. Roasted chocolate and toasted caramel notes brim over the top. Lavish spice aromas of clove and cinnamon are promoted naturally by the yeast we import especially for this most individual of brews.

Bottle courtesy of Wavers1. <3 Poured liked a liquid chocolate diamond with a beautiful, creamy head. The aroma is warm, like a kitchen full of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. The taste is lighter than I expected, a side effect of using wheat, maybe? It’s a harmonious union of wheat and stouty goodness <3

12 oz. brown bottle thanks to St. Fun. Let me start off by saying this beer really surprised me. It poured a somewhat black with a very big and very beautiful head. This beer looks good as the bubbles start to whisper away. The aroma has a nice banana to it and it seems to meld with some chocolate and bread, very nice. It’s like chocolate banana wheat oatmeal bread. The first taste has chocolate with a little banana, even though the banana comes in the middle. The oats mix nicely. All the flavors in this beer gel together in a very good way. The mouthfeel is nice also.

Black pour with creamy tan head and lace. Peaty, light coffee, and wheat. Peat, coffee, and wheat malt. Medium full bodied but fizzy.

arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Pours deep brown with off white head, aroma is chocolate, touch of coffee, and roasted notes with a touch of spice. Taste up front is a bit of banana leading into chocolate, roasted malt, and some clove with a roasted bitter finish. Very nice brew.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Pours brown, more like deep mocha, and topped with fairly dense head from the 12oz. bottle: Nose is of roast chocolate, lactose, clove, hits of cinnamon, hazelnut, almond, swirls of rich caramel, and warm banana. Light to medium bodied. Finishes with a touch of light, dry smoke. Drinkability: A great late September brew. Rebuy: Yeah. Pairing: An earthy cheese, perhaps Stilton. #472 on 13092010, DG.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2010
This poured a darker brown color with an off white head. Aroma was lots of chocolate and roasted notes with some light yeasty character in there too. Flavor was silky smooth toasted malts and chocolate with some spicey yeast flavors too. Excellent Dunkelweizen.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Pours a deep cloudy, nearly black brown with a small tan head. Smells of chocolate, smoke, and slightly charred toasted wheat bread with a hint of spice. Tastes pretty similar: smoke, char, dark wheat, subtle spice. Interesting stuff.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Browned amber body with a ring of head. Unexpected smokiness first impresses itself upon the olfactory nodules followed by a clean roastiness. Dark rauch wheat flavor, subdued phenols, so subtle as to be nearly imperceptible. A pleasantly smoky tasting wheat brew with roasty notes and spicy nuances.

12 oz. Thanks michael. Pours cloudy black with tawny edges. Big roasty chocolatey black bread nose. Almost a carraway effect. Fizzy cottony medium body. Roast bread and chocolate. Long roasty finish.
