Perhaps they need a new style of schwarzweizen? This was quite delicious, but difficult to compare to other dunkelweizens as it really is almost itís own roasty thing. Serving: Bottle

A nice brew, poured black with a large beige head, a dunkelweizen? ok but its for sure different for the style, way more roasted malt than usual, chocolate, nuts, with sourness thrown in, good brew!

12 oz. bottle; thanks Tom!! Hard to follow up against the Crackd Wheat, but this one was pretty damn good too; thin, cola brown with light tan head; sweet chocolate roast mixed with lemony wheat; a touch of smoke too to me; mildly fizzy moutfeel with rich chocolate and creamed wheat; smooth with a little dry ash in the finish; a really cool and unique beer

Appearance: Beautiful deep brown bordering on black. When held up to the light the brew is clearly brown with ruby corners. 2 finger light brown crown with some retention and nice lacing. Smell: Loads of wheat and peppercorn. A gentle bacony smoke note as well. Roast malt lays the foundation. Taste: Same as the nose with some extra roast malt presence. Mouthfeel: Very nicely done medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Perhaps a touch too much carbonation IMHO. Drinkability: This isnít a bad dunkel but I prefer some of the German legends more. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-21-2009

douglas88 (5800) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to brewolf. Pours a dark mocha color with a initially large foamy head, it subdues to a small white head. The aroma is spicy, nutty, caramel and roasted dark chocolate. A well-balanced beer; cloves and bananas, sweet figs, chocolates, a true Christmas beer. Very easygoing. Dark roasted malts. A lively palate.

HonusWagner (1328) - Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 A very nice Dunkel that of course goes retired right when I snag a bottle in trade! Dark brown hedging onto black, with a nose hinting at coffee, caramel, and cocoa. The taste is a nice blend of these flavors and more (with the wheat coming out slightly) and is quite robust for the style. This beer is really tasty, kind of like drinking a very good miniaturized stout.

Deep rich mahogany color with a crackling tan head. Very lively beer on the tongue with tons of carbonation. Light puffed wheat and faint burnt grain in the nose. Some chocolate flavors with puffed wheat, grain tea, and a burnt grain astringency. It may be suggestion, but I do get some cinnamon and spice in the finish. Very flavorful beer, but the carbonation is a little distracting. Thanks to AgedOak for the bottle.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle from a friend in Madison; not sure where she got it from. Pours a very dark hazy brown color with a finger-thick tan head that laces the glass sloppily. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, banana, chocolate, clove, and cola. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, apples, banana, clove, brown sugar, smoked wood, and wheat. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation, and a cola-like mouthfeel. Some spice and pepper present as well. Nice take on the style; a very interesting approach.
