3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark, barely translucent sepia with a fairly thick light tan head. Robust aroma has a malty, slightly smoky core and firm notes of cloves and caramel. Malty flavor delights with caramel, cloves and subtle woody hop notes plus more than a hint of fruit - apple, plus a little cherry. Smooth texture has only a little fizz and is fair in firmness. Scuttlebutt has it that this will keep you warm - but seriously.
