Bottle. An extremely strong coffee malt aroma - smells more like a straight dunkel than a dunkelweizen. Dark coffee brown - completely opaque. Strong smoky coffee malt flavor as well - very little bitterness yet very little flavor that suggests a Weizen. I have to give this top ratings - this isn’t just a dark Hefeweizen as is so often the case - this is exactly what I think a dunkelweizen should taste like - strong smoky malt flavors with the smoothness of a Weizen. Consider this the best dunkelweizen I have ever had.

One of the best tasting beers I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2008
Igazán fekete ital hatalmas ,kemény tejeskávé színű habbal és pompás illattal.Íze keserédes,fekete csokis,gyümölcsös és a búzákra jellemzően kissé savanykás.Mindez nagyon jó összhangban van egymással és még kell belőle és még és még... Életem egyik legjobb sötét búzája! wlajwl (6738) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Deeply malty aroma with a hint at wheat grain. The flavor is malty and bready with a hint at banana. The finish is dry. Overall a very good weizen. BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2007
500ml bottle from A-1 To-Go. Dark brown body with ruby-red highlights and a half an inch of light tan head. Smells like chocolate and caramel malts. Very sweet and roasty, with chocolate and caramel malts playing a prominent role in the flavor. A bit of a smokiness is present as well. Creamy mouthfeel with a fair bit of carbonation to support it, making for a clean finish. A pretty damn good dunkel all-in-all.

A modest and unreadable bottle (for my non-German eyes) but what an incredible drinking experience. Deep, shaggy brown, like the silty bottom of a well soaked mud puddle. The beer’s particulate matter even gives the illusion of silt. The head is smooth and consistent like a well laid layer of light brown whipped cream. But the fun really begins in the aroma. Here’s the grocery list I compiled as I laboriously labored over the smell: roast chicken, savory teriyaki sauce, butter, blackened fish, grilled steak char, rotisserie pork and brown sugar. All the finest meaty flavors congregating in the same tight and confined space of a beer bottle. I’m amazed such a saintly thing can even be purchased at a lowly "store." The taste is a genuine dopelleganger of the aroma. My mouth is immediately struck by the beer’s uncanny mimicry of Korean ribs. Juicy, tender and well spiced, this beer is an incredible panoramic view of flavors. Other flavors included apple glazed pork, charcoal, cocoa powder, shwarma and sweet starchy root vegetables. I couldn’t make up "Apple glazed pork" if I tried, but there it is. Add this buffet of tastes to a creamy and soothing palate and you’ve got an amazing and memorable beer. Such a surprise, this humble bottle. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2010

Pours a dark, thick mahogany with a healthy head of ripe banana meat yellow. Aroma is a banana caramel swirl that sits atop a ripe banana. Flavor is nice blend of banana and Cool-Whip, with just a spritzle of caramel topping. Nice on the tongue; flavors linger. Great beer.

Deep deep brown, almost black, beige head with great lacing and density. Smells of hazelnuts, chocolate, bananas and a hint of banana/clove. Great taste of nuts, banana and chocolate. It is like a chocolate banana with a great mouthfeel. LIght on the palate, great carbonation. This is a badass beverage. Jokk (46) - Odessa, UKRAINE - OCT 24, 2013
Poured into Weizen-glass. Very dark brown color, looks cloudy. Impressive beige creamy head, good lacing.
Very pleasant maltiness in the nose. It reminds of freshly broken bar of a fine dark chocolate bar, some roasted cocoa beans here. All of this absolutely beats a typical phenolic Weizen’s profile - so its almost unperceptible.
As for taste its a bit more strict than I expected, but really balanced. Strong flavor of dark chocolate again. Pleasantly dry, that makes it very drinkableю Distinctive bitterness in aftertaste. Medium body (wish it was a bit more dense). Crisp and smooth a the same time. Moderate carbonation. For me - excellent beer for any occasion.
