COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at the Burger Joint, Ogilve Transportation Center. Deep brown like dried blood, with just a little bit of highlighting at the bottom. A thin tan head. Has the creamy smell of a porter or milk stout. A very big taste thats too complex to pigeonhole. Start with some Schwartzbier malt, Just a slight astringency. A bit of bakers chocolate and again, a creamy texture. Quite filling after the Tallgrass 8-Bit I just had. Lacks the "spice" of a wheat beer, but surely offers a fine smooth texture, emphasized at the end by the return of a milk stout-ish mouthfeel.

Bottle. It poured black with a smallish beige head and minimal lacing. The aroma was a bit funky at first but as it warmed it produced a slight wheat nose. The taste was coffee and chocolate roasted malts with a slight sense of banana. It was medium bodied with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Roasty, toasty, crunchy (a little grainy), malty and good. Bits of chocolate in the aroma. Goes down easy. Enjoyed on tap at Hops Haven -- adjacent to 3 Sheeps Brewery.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Pitch Black, Big Foamy Head, Decent Lacing. Light Toasted Aroma. Toasted Malt, Earthy Hops, Bitter Finish. Id say more like Killians Irish Stout than Black Wheat. Nonetheless, easily Drinkable and Enjoyable. This Baaad Boy coming from Sheboygan, WI... Pretty Decent. Worth A Try.

AnokaBrewer (187) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2015
12 ounce bottle. I liked this beer, but I would not classify it as a Dunkelweiss. It is more of a Schwartzbier. Sweet aroma, black in color, white head. Sweet flavor, caramel finish.

scarletfire65 (1420) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour with a big mocha head. The aroma is creamy iced coffee. Tastes sweet up front, with some roasty coffee and bitter cocoa powder flavors developing mid swallow. Finishes light bodied, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Smooth palate, but no real yeasty wheat or dunkel characteristics. More like a schwarzbier.

BeerInHeaven (427) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2015
pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is malt, sweet dark fruit, like raisins. Creamy mouth feel. Taste is sweet with a hint of coffee. Fairly quick finish but with both sweet and bitter linger. Seems more like a sweet stout. At any rate, pretty good. I like it.

Draft. Opaque maroon color. Aroma of coffee. Taste is roasty coffee grounds. Decent.
