3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Dark amber, small but stable off-white head; vinous nose (Port), aromas of dried fruit (raisins) and bananas; slightly sweetish and moderate fruity flavour, medium to full bodied; sweet malty, distinctive fruity and a bit yeasty finish, some faint illusions of cloves. Yeah, a devilishly deceptive and moreish Weizen Bock !

I can’t believe I have not rated this yet. Nose ansd taste are both laden with something I might expext from a Westy 8. Loads of dark fruit and exotic spices.There is an undertone of terra firma.

Bottle. This came highly recommended from a waitress who as well is a beer hound. This is her fave, and I must say, it is one of my new favourites as well now! Very nice dark brown pour (from the bottle), good head. Very, very satisfying, filling flavour.

My new favorite. IMO tastes best if it warms up a little. Strong initial taste(high alcohol content?), but really good. If you are in the DFW area, $3.39 at World Market!

On Tap at Flying Pie on Fairview: This wonderfully expensive ($5 for 12 oz) and tasty beer is cloudy brown as seen in the picture. It has rich aromas of dates, figs and olives. It has other complexities in the tastes such as a small dose of saddle soap and grass clipping. It has a sweet finish and hides the 8% alcohol well. It has a slight silage aftertaste that flirts with a hefeweizen. Pretty good.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2006 This beer is very similar to and is as complex tasting as some of the best Belgian Strong Dark Ales that I’ve had. It has a little more Caramel malt flavors tho and a stronger banana /yeasty ester flavor base. A damn Good brew no doubt. A little on the sweet side, but in this beer that isn’t a bad thing at all, in fact it defines the brew.

Bottle-Yum, drank it before I ever looked up the ratings, so I was happily surprised. The aroma was mostly fruity bananas with a touch of clove. The plate was perfect leaving behind a touch of sour on the back of the tongue and the roof of the mouth. Great stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2006 Really good beer. Aroma was sweet fruity even, chocolate. Appearance was very impressive. Extremely dark with nice thick head. Palate was smooth and full bodied. Flavor was a rich sweetness of fruit and chocolate. Very well balanced. Excellent!
