This is, in fact, a wheat beer. Beneath its rich, dark exterior and cascading head, you will find a classic unfiltered wheat presentation fused with the smooth, roasty, chocolate-like characteristics of the dark wheat malt. With a finish this unnervingly smooth, even a black sheep starts to feel normal again.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle @ Richards Tasting. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa. Some ash, coffee, and a hint of graham cracker sweetness. Palate is bitter roasted malt and coffee forward. Ash, light sweetness of graham cracker, and some dark chocolate. A weird peppery note on the finish. Not bad, but not a very good Dunkelweizen.

shrubber85 (11088) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Banana and chocolate malt aroma - hint of charcoal. Very dark brown with moderate head. Charcoal, dark chocolate, and roasted wheat malt flavor. Mildly bitter herbal finish. A nice beer but tastes more like a schwarzbier/stout than a dunkelweizen - intensity of the malt covers up any phenols that might be present.

BVery (10050) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown - cola pour with a small rocky head. Cold press coffee and dark chocolate on the nose. Taste is semi-sweet, not overly bitter but a touch of roasty bitter. Pretty darn good.

DuffMan (9999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap @ the ber Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Deep brown with mahogany highlights. Dusty roasty aroma,light mouthfeel, with the dark malts totally overwhelming any wheat traits. This drinks more like a light stout.

bytemesis (7754) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep dark mahogany, small tan head, dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent residual and good lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashtray, a bit smokey, wheat. Flavor is medium sweet, just a bit of bitterness, fairly low acidity, rich roasty flavor, toasted dark bread, a bit of tobacco. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Very good.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
On tap at c.1880. Poured very deep brown with a creamy, well-retained khaki head. The aroma picked up a nice blend of roasted black and chocolatey malts paired with some toasted wheat and grains.. well-presented. The flavor found well-roasted black malt and coffee notes at the core, with lightly tangy wheat, ripe banana, and cloves laced throughout.. prickly carbonation joined in on the finish. Medium-ish bodied and dry on the palate.. smooth feel across the middle.. overall a very good drinker.

AirForceHops (6873) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 8, 2015
12 oz bottle courtesy of shrubber85. Thin white head on black liquid. Aroma has light smoke, chocolate and underlying malted wheat.

Flavor of dark roasted grain, chocolate notes, sweet body with a mild tone of smoke. Body is medium with a abrupt finish. Drinkable, no problems but I feel like it doesnt know want style it wants to be. Still worth a try.
