Murphy's rating

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bomber. Pours a murky dark brown, almost opaque. No head, mild carbonation. Aroma is molassis, floral tones, sweetness. Taste is big molassis, some brown sugar, alcohol. A very light bitter hopping. Caramel sweetness. Finish is alcoholic with just a touch of burnt malt, nice. Body is just a touch too thin for the style. Certainly not a traditional American porter, as the roasted and chocolate malts are subdued. More of a hearty winter ale.

cblado (243) - Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a thick brown color. Very little head, no lacing. Aroma is heavy roasty malt, with some caramel. Flavor roasty malt up front with a hint of caramel and coffee. Palate is rather chewy. Overall a decent winter ale.

slowrunner77 (5944) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
smells like your typical english strong/winter warmer type beer. dark fruits, and roasted malt. flavor goes south...alarmingly astringent, bordering on sour, and not the good kind of sour. I can’t get over the palate and flavor on this one. RB raters have commented on it regularly but don’t seem to mind as much as i do, but i didn’t dig it."

Lagerboy (1256) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Bomber. Clear deep dark copper brown, persistent creamier tan foam settles. Aroma of dark roast wit malt and caramel. Taste is darker roasted wit malt, sweet caramel and milky chocolate, some dark fruitiness and light earthy hop. Softer carbonation, smooth medium body. Nice. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Murky darker amber color, small head, some lace/retention. Aroma is big caramel, some wheat, banana. Medium bodied, quite drinkable.

snoworsummer (2186) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2014
From a bottle. Pours caramel brown with a creamy tan head. Tastes like roasted grains, malty, burnt coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells malty, nutty, and like dried fruit.

sonnycheeba (3592) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours cola brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is cookie and bready malts, toffee, light roast, fig, dates, and some nuttiness. Flavor is dry malts, light roast, light earthy bitterness, and some dark fruit esters; dry finish with some roast. Medium body and carbonation.

Beergeek23322 (2340) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2014
11/2/2011. 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas with spices, yeast and hints of chocolate. The malt and spice combination is what gets me every time drinking a weissbier - and I’m just not motivated for that style.

Eberndt (185) - - JAN 18, 2014
Deep dark brown color when poured. Malt flavors and a little bitter coffee aftertaste.

Fatehunter (1271) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Pours a thin head on a dark, dark brown colored body. The aroma is a rich malt, caramel and a little lemon zest. The taste is malty sweet forward, molasses in the middle and finishes with a mild bitter note. The texture is a little sticky with low to moderate carbonation. An enjoyable sipper.

BVukelich (37) - Algona, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Poured from bomber to glass. Great, dark color with a slight ruby hue. Thick, tan head and left lots of lace to decorate the glass. I didn’t pick up crisp citrus aroma as listed by the brewer. It was a tad sweet with coffee/bitter aftertaste. Medium viscosity, above average essence of alcohol. I pulled it out of a fridge at 37deg but as it warmed to room temp the flavor and mouthfeel was enhanced. It was a real enjoyable beer. I’ll be drinking again, for sure. A bit of discrepancy on style (per BA), listed as Weisenbock. Brewer’s site states Dunkelweiss.
