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.

Aroma - Initial smell reminds me almost of Guinness Draught, with a hefty roasted malt character accentuated by Irish yeast. The roastiness gives way to more of a stale toast note as it warms up a bit. Plunging my nose further into the glass I get some deep fruity notes, almost raisin or plum like. Appearance - Stout-like, with a deep black color. Khaki head is composed of pinhead sized bubbles that stick around for a little while, though I wish they would last a bit longer. The beer looks as though itís unfiltered, as there are no highlights when itís held up to the light. Thatís somewhat difficult to discern due to the dark color. Taste - Bready, chocolately, and slighlty fruity. Think a dark, toasted bread (rye or pumpernickel) dusted with bittersweet dark chocolate, chased with a Coke, and youíre in the ballpark. Very smooth and drinkable. No discernable off flavors. Wheat comes through somewhat, this drinks almost like a wheat stout. Roast character is less pronounced in the taste as compared to the aroma, but itís still easy to pick up. Mouthfeel - Low to moderate bitterness, with a smooth character that benefits from not being overcarbonated. Mouthfeel is moderate to full, most likely due to the wheat used in the brewing process. Finishes neight dry nor sweet, instead aiming (and hitting) somewhere exactly in the middle. Overall - Due to a camping trip that went awry, Iíve been somewhat partial to this beer. Now, as the nights get longer and the temperature drops further, I find myself enjoying this more, as itís a style-straddling beer that doesnít hold itself to one style or definition. If youíre in the mood for a roasty wheat beer that goes down relatively easy, then this is the beer for you. This beer would go awesome with a classic Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.

Can at home. Pours dark brown to black with one finger of head. Aroma is roast malt and not much else. Little wheat in the flavor. Mostly just very roasty and somewhat thin bodied. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fairly run of the mill beer but certainly drinkable & decent for the style. Not quite as watery as most wheats & the deep dark pour is kind of cool. Ok - I wouldnít go seek this out again though!

Can poured into a pint glass -- Pours a deep dark brown with active fizzies and very little white head. Smells like dark malt, hint of roast. First flavors are roasty and bland, as it sits and warms it opens up very nicely. Light malt sweetness that melds with the darker malts nicely. Recommend serving above fridge temps.

weihenweizen (1943) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Refrigerated can, from queenholly, poured into a weizen glass. Dark brown with big light brown head. Aroma is banana, medium body, medium/light carbonation, creamy texture, and little lacing. Taste is dark malt, chocolate, coffee, hints of banana. If I drank this blindly I would guess coffee stout, but has subtle dunkelweizen characteristics. Thanks for another state tick queenholly.

Pours a thin black. Nice aromas of wheat, banana, and coffee. Flavors are a let down. Some sweet grains and coffee flavors.. But a thin watery finish.

Cornstalker is a very unusual dark wheat ale. Though the brewery feels comfortable with calling it a dunkel weizen, Iím not sure that title really fits. With its dark brown body and cocoa aroma, Cornstalker has a lot more in common with a porter than a wheat ale. That is, of course, until you get to the taste. Yes, there are some cocoa/coffee notes in the flavor, but youíll be more likely to pick up on the sweet malts and light body. While Cornstalker isnít a pure stylistic example of, well, anything, it does offer a lot of malty goodness in a surprisingly dark body. This dark wheat beer isnít what you expect. Luckily, thatís mostly a good thing.

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 youíd expect from a wheat beer. Tried at a Thunderhead tasting in December 2013.
