Slam Dunkel was a small batch release in 2007. We had such an overwhelming response that we had to put it in the seasonal rotation. We also decided, as brewers, we couldnít live without drinking this beer every year! This 7% Double Dunkelweizen is unfiltered and made with over 50% wheat malt along with pale, munich, and a touch of chocolate to give it the traditional color and flavor. Bitterness is subdued to allow the Weihenstephen yeast to shine through with those traditional notes of banana and clove. Available in June in bottles and draft. Recipe by Chris Wilson, Head Brewer.

unexpectedly lucent dark copper with a thick beige head, highly effervescent.

aroma: slight wheat, slight metallic, slight cooked banana (banana bread), slight alcohol.

T1= bright fruit, touch of hops.
T2= chocolate malt, sweet banana nut bread.
T3= banana alcohol, just a bit of alcohol warmth.

i said "wow" and made a thoughtful facial expression after every draught.
the flavors are absolutely great; but subtle and delicately balanced, so decant carefully, leaving the yeast in the bottle.

Wow! This is very good stuff! - Hazy, slightly red brown color with big thick head. The aroma is a feast for the senses! Smell of nuts roasting with slight banana. The flavor is excellently balanced between the roasty malts and slight spice. Alcohol is very well masked. Finish is clean and not too sweet. I will be sure to find this one again!

12 oz bottle from Baruniís in Baden, PA. Nearly perfect in every regard. Still wish my sister lived in Easton where I could get these good ales even fresher.

This pours a rich, opaque, cloudy wood-brown with a fine-bubbled beige head. Aroma is rich and wheaty, with a strong hint of lemon even without the obligatory lemon wedge. Flavor is rich, wheaty and yeasty, with a little malt and a "rubbery" undertone. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth. This is unlike any beer I have ever had before.

22oz bomber from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a murky opaque brown body with a good inch of light tan head. Smells like cloves, banana, nuts, smoke, hints of lemon grass... Tastes like nut, banana, cloves with some hints of caramel and chocolate malts and smoke. Rich full body with ample carbonation. In a word, phenomenal. Damn tasty, one sip invites another... Iím very impressed with this one, one if Weyerbacherís finest offerings and for sure one of the best beers around for the price.

I’m very impressed and pleased with this! A nice reddish brown cloudy color, huge foaming head. Aroma is rich and refreshing, alot of spicy zesty wheatiness, and a touch of clove and banana. Flavor is light and refreshing, with zesty minty wheat and again just touch of clove and banana. Finish is light and easy. On the whole the beer is semi-dry, except for a nice melanoidin presence in the middle of this beer, which is quickly carried off with lots of carbonation. Just a 100% spot on dunkelweizen.

wonderful ochre color, fruity, bready sweet aroma with clove and banana. Very much like the counterpart from Victory, a little thinner though

Brown in color. This one is very strong and fits in well with the other Weyerbacher offerings. Fruit and spice in the taste.

Wonderfully bready nose, lots of malt character. Maybe some phenols? Very yeasty and pleasant. Nice head retention, khaki brown in color. Beer is definitely unfiltered, lots of sediment floating around. Color is a light brown thatís hazy. Taste is very clean, plenty of banana up front. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly slick like most of the Weyerbachers. Finishes slightly tart and boozy. Lasting light chocolate and toffee notes. Enjoyability 4.5/5. Itís tough to point out the flaws, and if anything, itís a bit hot on the alcohol.
