COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark wheat has a bold, dark color that surprises the drinker with a mild clean flavor. This beer is a black version of an American Wheat, with some locally malted corn added for a drier, more drinkable, local flavor. Germans would consider this a beer an American version of a Dunkel Weizen.

Can. Chocolate and wheat malt aroma. Dark chestnut brown with large tan head. Sweet milk chocolate and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. Excellent - basically a top of the line dunkel/porter.

Can - small foamy head, almost black color, roasty aroma (mild) and flavor (fair to strong), mild hops - a little roastier than expected but not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate and dark fruits. Similar flavor, with light bready malts and a somewhat ashy finish. Average body. Solid beer, one of their better offerings.

This was a pretty decent beer, dark appearance and more roasty than you’d expect from a wheat beer. Tried at a Thunderhead tasting in December 2013.

Can. A- Cocoa, wheat, spices, roasty, leather. A- Black color, solid liquid, tan head. T- Wheat, cocoa, toast, medium bitterness. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, dry finish. O- I had high hopes for this and was more than let down. The flavors just did not work together and it was unbalanced. Simply off-tasting. Looks nice though.

Looks can be deceiving. Pours a nice deep brown with a thin white head. Aroma is like rusty stale water & flavor is non-existent. Finishes clean. Outside of the aroma, it's non offensive & basically a whole lotta nothing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a dark ruby brown with a small tan head. There is a slight toasted malt flavor followed by some creaminess and a light sweetness. It ends with a mild bitterness.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is toast, wheat, chex, and roast. The look is brown in color, clear, with a beige colored head. The taste is malts, wheat, toast, and chex.

Thanks Marshall, for your beer-by-mail contribution to our "balcony time." Opaque dark brown, quick drop-to-rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is dark malt with a small shot of black coffee entering midway through. Carbonation shows late to help balance. Easy to drink, but not memorable.

Can. Roasty malt, light chocolate aroma - rather porterish. Mahogany with a large tan head. Chocolate and light coffee malt - reminds me a little bit of creamy CoCo Wheats. Medium creamy body, soft carbonation. Very nice.
