COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Humble comfort in every sip
Chocolate Wheat is a Porter brewed with chocolate malt, wheat malt, and well-chosen specialty grains. The combination creates a deep black, full-bodied beer that provides subtle hop flavors and rich malt tones. Chocolate Wheat balances the flavors of roasted caramel, coffee, and chocolate, which ends in a smooth finish.

nimbleprop (5084) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2011
12oz bottle pours a lightly viscous, opaque black with a spitty, clumpy, off white head. Nose of toasted malts, chocolate, multi grain bread, dried hay, nuts, a little coffee. Flavor is much lighter than the color or nose would let on; watered down malt, light brown sugar, watered down coffee, crackers, a little wheat. Medium bodied, dry finish. Smells pretty good, flavor is a bit too watery.

hopscotch (9379) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle… Pours black with a small, creamy taupe head. The bouquet offers chocolate, mild mocha and light vanilla with a trace of cinnamon. Light to medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The perfectly balanced flavor presents nuances of espresso and dark chocolate, but seems watered down. Finishes crisp, clean and a touch dry. Bottle courtesy of StFun!

Bottle. Dark pour, tannish head. Aroma has some sourish notes(oh no not another infection??)...flavor is a bit tart, some cocoa, wheat, light grainy notes. Meh.

12 ounce thanks to mikem409. Chocolate for sure. But with that wheat profile that keeps it from being a big time chocolate stout. Reminds me a bit of the Bells wheat beers from six or seven years ago.

beerbill (3508) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2011
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mikem409. Pours black with a thin-moderate brown head that lasted through the first two sips and leaves a complex network of lace. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and some char. The flavor is roasted malt with some ash and a bit of tobacco. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

reggiedunlop (3181) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Pours black with a medium mocha head. Aroma is lightly roasted...milky...just a bit of chocolate...earthy and wheaty. Flavor has some roastiness...a bit of black licorice...can’t find a hint of chocolate....and some sort of nasty flavor I can only describe as fishy!? Creamy medium mouthfeel and a fishy aftertaste. Horrible...pouring out...disappointing.

(12oz bottle from daknole).pours dark brown with a garnet hue. Aroma is chocolate, bread, and wheat. Taste is roasty with some sweetness. Ok.
