3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Jay! Dark brownish bred pour with white head, aroma brought notes of banana, clove, biscuit, caramel, toffee, hints of earth and grassy notes. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, some nice banana, clove, touch of grass and earth, slightly watery finish with a hint of sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is roasty chocolate. Brown in color. Flavor is sweet, roast,y and wheaty with a little bit of clove and yeast perhaps. It has a lingering sweetness as well. It is definitley better than the Irish Red which it is competing against.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a dark cloudy brown with an off-white head. The nose is fresh and lively with a bit ester and dark fruit forward nose; hidden caramel and molasses with a nice spicy wheat background. The flavor is chewy with a nice wheat and caramel touch and a raisin and molasses spicy finish. Clean and balanced with a big body and mouthfeel. Nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
( 12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) Pours clear yellow/orange and just average lacing. Nose of German wheat, clove. Taste is lightly sour and some chocolate on the finish. Doesn’t remind me of most dunkels at all. Watery body, needs more sweetness and finishes quite dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is basic dunkelweizen with some caramel, toffee, banana and clove notes. The flavor is more of the same with bananas and cloves, as well as some caramel malt, vanilla and brown sugar. Thin to medium mouthfeel, slightly water. Medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 12/31/2010. This dunkelweizen pours a medium to light brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and lacing. The aroma is bready, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium to light bodied dunkel. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice breadiness, but a little lacking in sweetness. Decent and drinkable, yet seems to be missing something. Could use a little more sweetness and a touch more breadiness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. Pours a somewhat burnt orange color. Like when an orange is starting to go bad color. Cloves dominate aroma with fruity yeastiness. Decent dunkle flavor but maybe needs a tad more in both aroma & flavor

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2007 "Sample B" bottle shared by Daknole. Pours cloudy brown with scant tan head. Rich malty aroma with lots of raisins, dates, other dark dried fruit, molasses, and the crust of rum cake. Medium carbonation, good palate. Fruit cakey malts balanced by a nice dryness. Like an old actress can still perceive its heyday shine, which impresses. Clean finish is a little thin but the beer has stood the test of time exceptionally well.
