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.

Easy drinking and good enough for the style from what I know from my weak experience drinking dunkelweizens. Dark amber pour with OK head and lacing. Bottle from total wine.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Off balanced with a lot of hops and a watery taste. I'm starting to wonder if a beer doesn't have a certain amount of hops on the West Coast, it's not beer. Getting grapefruit, honey, this is a train wreck.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first beer rating in a while. On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. Served in a large snifter, which is a nice touch. A very dark, not quite black beer with moderate carbonation. A chocolate note on the nose. Chocolate predominates on the tastebuds, with a faint fruity note. Sweet and rich. Body is medium, finish is sweet and lingering. I find many dunkels a bit weak, and this is the perfect remedy. 3.9.
