Awesome beautiful stongle belgian ale. No head at all what so ever, much better that 4th edition when ot comes to palate. Note of coffee and toffee on the aroma, with sweet Coffee and chocolate hints. No clwar taste of alcohol qt all. One of the top five beer I’ve had ever.

Bottle 1 pint 9 oz. Color is deep brown very thin head in a tulip. Aroma is thick Munich malts, orange peel, and wheat. ALLOVATE (3014) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
The flavor is herbal and fruity with large amounts of toffee and earthy malts. The flavor is sweet and sugary with the spice and herbal helping mildly with the balance. But still very sweet overall but the alcohol is covered nicely, so it does have some drinkable aspects.
At just on cool and into a snifter. Just shy of bright before the yeast goes in; a tawny mahogany in colour with weird, soda-pop carbonation and no head. Nose has a strong waft of banoffee pie and cheap moonshine amongst nuances of sherry, red wine vinegar, kecap manis, toffee and dark Belgian candi. Unusually minty on the palate. Big, brash, liqueurish body with the alcohol to boot. Sticky, sweet mint chocolate flavour dominates over touches of coriander, hay bales and twiggy bark, nail polish remover (?), booze, booze and more booze. Near freezing here in Oz now and this one warmed me right through. There is a rough woody, oaken note that melds all the flavours together. It is oddly addictive drinking, or is that just me getting drunk!? Not long; it seems to disappear after each sip but a touch of what seems like steviol resides on the tongue. Really, to sum up, this is one weird brew. Pulled it off? yes! Enjoyable? Enough! Do it again? Probably not!

Dark brown body under a light tan head.
Sweet malt aroma, some spice.
The flavor is sweet without being cloying. Some spice. Estery. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Not sure what glass you would serve a Imperial Dunkelwit in so I chose my thistle. Mahogany with ruby highlight topped by an attractive head and lace. Lovely flowery and lightly spiced character on top of a bed of dark sweet bread sprinkled with brown sugar. Faint orange peel and malt chocolate too. Oh I would be remissed not to say something about the fleet birch syrup, and seemingly woody notes that gives a quick undertone of a quality birch beer. She is a keeper (and has been aged for close to two years).

Draft at Rattle n Hum. Pours deep amber with a thin off white head. Sweet fruity base, with spicy yeast, coriander, caramel malts, a spicy yeasty finish, and a hint of booze. Not bad. solidfunk (8941) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Lots of coriander with great citrus flavor. Pours dark with good head and lacing. Comes together very nicely, a great mix of a weizenbock with extra coriander the German beer laws wouldn’t normally let fly. Finishes with light sweetness, full palate. Tap at Churchkey. radagast83 (8059) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Draft at Churchkey for a meet the brewer event. Poured a hazy brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was a wit all the way - lots of wheat, grain, coriander notes. Flavor was, at least for me, pretty distinct dunkel notes - lots of wheat. This was very bold and very enjoyable. nimbleprop (8376) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a deep, raisiny brown with some spitty, white head. Nose has soap, raisins, mint, wheat, mild clove, a little laundry detergent. Flavor is a little better, sweet, lemon lime soda, raisin, orange, soap, straw, caramel, some breakfast cereal. Basically a full bodied finish. Sounds strange, but I was digging it.

500ml bottle. Cola mahogany with a thinning yellow beige head becoming a halo. Intensely aromatic Belgian aroma of fruit jellies, candied peel, perfumed coriander and Keith’s coriandered homebrew: literally a 5% kit bitter bottled with date expired ground spice out of the back of the cupboard. Dangerous Belgian flavour (bonus point); all yeast, spice, perfumed Cointreau and madness. Huge orange. Entirely likeable if completely one-dimensional and a bit demented.
