COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For this holiday season, we have brewed a special Dunkelweizen beer with a twist. Our Brewmaster has adapted this classic, filtered dark wheat beer into a unique festive beer. Brewed using 100% organic chocolate from the Whistler Chocolate Company, a blend of spices and a twist of orange zest. Delicious, complex malts and light citrus balancing notes present a soft hint of festive, seasonal flavours.

Admin Note: The Chocolate Dunkel and seasonal Winter Dunkel are the same beers.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA (and the kitchen sink). Medium brown pour, light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very candy-sweet, and evocative of Terry’s Chocolate Orange confection. The palate delivers the same fake candy sweetness that certainly captures a chocolate covered orange perfectly, but is syrupy and soda-ish. This will have its fans, but I’m not one of them. Drainpour.

Strong chocolate and orange aroma. Thin bubbly head. Thin body with tastes of spice, orange and chocolate.

Exactly what you think it will be like. Heavy chocolate and orange. Great for the winter holiday season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crazy artificial caramel squares. Flavour is Terry's Chocolate Orange... So sweet and minor bitterness. Slight watery palate but overall cloying.

pictoman (551) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear copper colour with minimal white head. Very strong aroma of chocolate and orange (like Terry’s chocolate orange). Same flavour, but light and almost watery. Little body.

Sadly I didn’t really get to taste or smell the beer here, it was covered with a chocolate syrup in the same way coffees are given hazelnut syrups or what-have-you for teens still not used to the coffee flavours. Scares me to think that this style of "crafting" beer might become more popular. I agree with others that there was a strong orange characteristic.

Reimer96 (1288) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a clear brown color with a nice lasting light brown head. Aroma of sweet, chocolate, cocoa, citrus, basically like a chocolate orange. Taste is sweet chocolate that turns into a tart orange in a rather unpleasant way likely from the wheat. If this was kept as just a dunkel and left out the wheat I think it would work a lot better all around.

andrewturba (1003) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours clear brown colour with big initial tan head that tones down to a fair cap on top that seems to last. Aroma is chocolate,orange, vanilla, and some nuttiness, sorta like a terries chocolate orange. Flavour is sweet milk chocolate, zesty orange, spices and toffee. Not as bad as some are saying but this is definitely not a session beer, more of a novelty beer.

sulawang (627) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2013
pours dark beer bottle brown, small head, a few slow streams. Aromatic dessert chocolate orange on the nose. Drinks with authentic cacao up front, and orange zest, akin to chocolate orange confections, malts, caramel, finishing on the watery side, malty light bitter. Medium complexity, med depth, good transitions, decent carry, decent drinkability.
