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 (1036) - 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.

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Clear brown color with a copper hue and average activity. Lightly creamy beige 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes with average legs. Aromas and flavors of toffee, nuts, fruits, coffee, grains, herbal spices. Tasty mix of sweet caramel and molasses, a strong roasted nuts feel, with undertones of bitter coffee and dark fruits, finishing with a slightly grassy and earthy feel. Creamy medium body with average carbonation. Well intensified finish ending with a slightly bitter spicy herbal feel and sweet dark fruits on the tongue. Overall Dark and Stormy Night is a pretty good craft with nice flavors, good freshness and balance, but missing the true nature of a weizen lacking a strong grainy taste.

Je me dois d’être sincère: cette bière tire ses principaux avantages de son look assez invitant. Le liquide est rubis et affiche une mince tête à la mousse bien délicate et peu persistante. Au nez, c’est à croire que cette brasserie ne sait faire qu’un seul truc et toutes les bières sentent la même chose: du miel artificiel, du gros grain bien lourd et sucré, une levure plutôt gomme balloune... Goût de levures plutôt artificielles de gomme balloune et texture mince. Quelques fruits foncés en bouche qui me rappellent étrangement la datte et le raisin mais sans aucun corps pour soutenir les effluves que je ressens. Goût de sucre artificiel ajouté qui dure malheureusement longtemps sans aucune amertume pour venir équilibrer cet arrière-goût sucré et fatiguant.

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 (617) - 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 don’t expect a typical dunkelweizen.

Bottle. Dark ruby-brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma starts quite sweet with dark caramel and brown sugar, but there’s 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 (1528) - 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.

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. Doesn’t really remind me of a dunkleweizen. Slightly interesting brew.

reebtogi (5676) - 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 (927) - Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle - has a weak cola brown look to it and a malty caramel aroma and taste. Weak finish. It’s the only beer I have access to at 2 AM and it’s better than nothing!

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 isn’t much better than the aroma. Buttery burnt caramel with a soapy edge. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. I’m not sure what they were shooting for here, but its safe to say they missed.
