3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber thanks to Arbitrator. Pours a clear dark cola brown color with a small fading tan head. Nice aroma of caramel and roast, wheat, and some dark fruit notes. Very good flavor, huge caramel and toffee with plum, raisin, roastiness, and slight booze. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation and a rather smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff overall. Great for a dunkelweizen.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Same bottle as in photo. Pored into a Weizen glass. Nearly pitch black color. A brown hue around the edges; very minimal head. It did leave spotty lacing. Nose is sweet roasted malt The taste is not like a dunkleweizen, its more of a porter. No banana clove, bubblegum or wheat/ yeast at all. Dark fruit, roasted malt and a light touch of alcohol in the finish. A good brew, just not your traditional Dunkleweizen.

On tap at Sebago Portland , ME location. Pours out dark brown with some red highlights topped with a small sand head. Aroma was of sweet pit fruit, rich malts, nuts, and wheat. Taste was more of the sweetness. A nice light molasses note along with a nice full body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Almost black colour, seems cloudy. Small stable light brown head. Very roasted flavour, vinous. Seems to have a little burning aftertaste, almost like chili or hopburn. Still balanced, though.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A friend at work hooked me up with some sebago beers and this one is delicious! It’s like a wheaty porter with dark malts up front and almost a chocolate porter-like finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Coffee tones abound in this well balanced beer which has a nice sweet molasses layer underneath. The only down side for me is the palate seems a bit too wet which kind of waters down the goodness in this beer. There is also a bit of an ashy flavor in the finish.
