COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was a dark and stormy night when the humble brewers connected with the master German maltsters in Bamberg in order to create the smooth synthesis you now have in your discerning possession; an easy-drinking hybrid of a German dunkel and a traditional English ale which emerges as an unassuming, yet enjoyable verbose, beverage.

Tessic (934) - Brantford, Ontario, - SEP 5, 2012
This Dunkel poured a dark amber colour with a tan coloured, foamy head. Tot eh nose there are scents of caramel, ripe fruit, a little cocoa and rich malt. First sip had a slightly watery mouthfeel but rich in flavours of ripe fruit, light caramel and vermouth. Finish was slightly bitter with very distant hops.

Dark brown pour, no head. Aroma of sugary musty wheat, and cheap home brew malts. I think we got an infection here. No bitterness, barely any carb. Musty, sweet, muddy wheat finish. Yuck.

smcolw (600) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Lumpy, light beige head which plentiful webby lace. The broth is deep brown, but light passes easily. Hard to be positive, but I think it is clear. Smells of caramelized brown sugar and a bit of molasses. Some yeast in the back of the nose, too. No wheat nor hop aroma. The taste is drier than the smell indicates, although the swallow brings out some of the sweetness. Again, there is little wheat flavor. The body is somewhat chewy but the carbonation is appropriately high. There is a good dose of toasted malt (crystal?) that provides a biscuity flavor. This is smooth and easily drinkable, but donít expect a typical dunkelweizen.

GregClow (2977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Dark ruby-brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma starts quite sweet with dark caramel and brown sugar, but thereís an interesting herbal character in the background - betel leaf and tobacco - along with cocoa and slight smoke. Flavour is a bit simpler than the aroma suggests, but still nice, with roast malt, caramel, dry cocoa, and a lingering woodiness. Odd, but good.

AgentAle (1087) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
Aroma is caramel, vanilla, rye whiskey and lightly smoked casks. Taste is rich sweet malts with some mineralized water. Light hopiness which is pretty well balanced. Overall the taste dissipates fairly quickly. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

pintbypint (2953) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
500ml brown bottle. A coppery brown pour, clear and sediment free. Very creamy beige cap, good sticky lacing. Nose has chocolate and caramel and raisin.Taste has dark chocolate, caramel, trace of sour dark fruit, dry wheat malts. Mild aftertaste, some dark malt. Doesnít really remind me of a dunkleweizen. Slightly interesting brew.

reebtogi (4819) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits (perhaps raisin or date) with some chocolate notes. Taste is a chocolate and fruity sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. Light in body for the style and typical carbonation. A little on the thin side for my liking.

fiveacestx (788) - Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle - has a weak cola brown look to it and a malty caramel aroma and taste. Weak finish. Itís the only beer I have access to at 2 AM and itís better than nothing!

johnnnniee (2933) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from the liquor store on PEI Pours a crystal clear dark brown with ruby at the edges and a wispy off white head that dissipates quickly. Butter caramel and toffee dominate the aroma, with traces of dish soap. I find no weizen or hops in the aroma of this brew. The flavor isnít much better than the aroma. Buttery burnt caramel with a soapy edge. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Iím not sure what they were shooting for here, but its safe to say they missed.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a very cloudy dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. I get almost no smell off this beer, even though it had a nice head on it. Taste was pretty sweet, and had some graininess to it

BrewGoblin (550) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Everybody is hating on this pretty harshly but I thought it was alright. Cloudy, 70% cocoa brown with a thin foamy skull. Aroma is lights citrus, chocolate malts and some dank fruits. Sort of molasses, banana and berries with resin hops and sweet nutty malts. I wish the feel was thicker, it would have made it for me.
