COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Creamy head smooth carbonation complements its deep mahogany color. Bouquet teems with chocolate, apple and clove. Roasted malts intertwine with the Tettnanger hops to create a depth of complex flavors. Smooth roasted malts and dark caramel leads to clean finish - unlike any other dark beer.

This poured a somewhat murky medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was os slightly tart dark fruit, some metal, and some toasted malt. Flavor was a bit strange fomr what I was expecting from a dunkel, a bit of a tangy tartness, but not sour, a bit roasted and fruity too. Interesting.

Bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Great yeasty spicy aroma with some fruity sweetness, caramel, and cloves. The flavor has a great wheaty and yeasty base with clove like spices, some fruity notes, caramel, and a light roast. Really good.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, light chocolate, slight spice, light whet, and a hint of clove. Poured deep orange/brown in color with a small, tan head that disappeared except for around the edges. Hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of wheat, light chocolate, slight spice, and a hint of roasting. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Wheat, chocolate, and roast finish is dry.

Pours brown with nose of earthy malt, caramel, roasty, hops. Tastes rich, complex, with earthy, some nutty, and cacao notes. Very nice, as with all the Ramstein offerings.

Poured dark like cola. Light head and lacing. Aroma of malt and wheat. Taste of malt, wheat and sweetness of molasses. A hint of clove in the finish. Yum! Got the 12 oz bottle from AirForceHops-my supplier. :) I would buy it myself now.

Let this one warm a bit. Deep brown with lacing head. Aroma is massive sweet malt caramel and light clove. Flavor is also sweet caramel with a good wheat character and hints of molasses well as a banana aftertaste in the finish, balances the initial sweet impression. A touch of apple as well. Mildly spicy and clovey, just a hint of clove with a dry and refreshing finish that is medium in duration. A nice Dunkleweizen

Pours a dark dark brown with creamy head. Aroma is of chocolate and clove. First thing you notice when you taste is how light and fizzy the mouthfeel it. Taste initially is sour apple mixed with carmel and clove. Lots of interesting flavor that ends pretty dry. The brewery is 5 minutes from me!!

Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark amber with a slight tan head. Aroma has chocolate, fruit and spice. Med body, mild carb. Flavor is almost smokey chocolate with hints of banana. "Unlike any other dark beer" - likely correct.
