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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted wheat malt. Flavor of chocolate, light sweet malt, some roast, and a hint of wheat. Actually this was a very tasty dark wheat ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aromas are roasted malt, coffee and a little bit of wheat. The wheat is really muted and this remind more of a porter than a what ale. The bready flavors are there, but never overwhelming. I like this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12oz can...
Appearance: Pitch black darkness with noticeable carbonation. Minimal head and medium lacing.
Aroma: Smells of stout characteristics with wheat grain elements pairing.
Taste: Surprising based on the pour. Pours dauntingly stout-like but comes across tasting of malted, almost roasted, wheat characteristic. Shocking based on expectation.
Palate: Minor cola carbonation at first with a quickly flattening body that takes the taste right with it.
Overall: Not the greatest of Dark Wheat beers but by no means anywhere near the worst. Easily unique within itís own right I would drink think again and recommend it to somebody as a deviation from most in the style.
Serving type: can

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at The Chicken Coop in Urbandale. Nearly black body with a light brown colored head. Sweet nose of caramel and tobacco. The taste is like woody tobacco and bitter coffee. There is also some hint of baking chcolate in the fairly dry and clean brew. This is nice for a beer that is somewhere between an American Wheat and a dunkelweizen.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My hombre below me tells me that this is on draught at the Chicken Coop? Hot damn! Time to get some wings and Cornstalker... I had no idea they had branched out further than Fat Tire and the Sam Adamís seasonal!
My serving was from a can, which I suppose is fine... but it leaves me sort of wishing I were at the Chicken Coop right now.
The beer pours a very dark brown with a mahogany tone when held up to the light. The head is big and khaki colored, fluffy, but sort of fading faster than I would like it to.
The aroma is spicy with some light banana and chocolate. Mild roasty coffee tones are present in the aroma, but as it sits in the glass it gets fruitier and more Hefe-Weizen-y.
The flavor is really fairly dry, I expected this to be sweeter/fruitier from the aroma. Chocolate, nutty tones, and some church basment coffee are sort of running the show... itís a pretty enjoyable trio really. Some banana and spice linger in the background and I like what they do the the beer as a whole.
This is some pretty enjoyable stuff.
