From notes, 12/18/11:
Served on-tap at the brewery into the complimentary Ugly Pug Pint Glass.
A: Medium-to-dark brown with lighter hues around the edges. Poured with no head, and therefore, no lacing.
S: Fruity yeast upfront - banana & also some bubble-gum. Sweet, but not cloying, wheat malts and a bit of caramel.
T: Banana, caramel, and mild hop bitterness.
M: I only have Vitus to compare as far as the style; this was a bit thinner, but not by much.
O: Really enjoyed this one fresh at the brewery. They only tapped one keg and it went fairly quick: wanted a second pint, but it had already kicked. Will look for this in bottle. mcox90 (2138) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2012
22 oz bottle courtesy of Summer Secret Santa. Pours a cola like brown with a 1 finger off white head. Head quickly recedes leaving you with a thin ring. Some banana and clove on the nose with some chocolate malts. Richer and sweeter than a typical weizen. Lots of dark wheat flavor. More banana and spice. Medium, silky body with a good amount of carbonation. Excellent brew that I really enjoyed. Kudos to my Santa. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2012
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours dark brown with a moderate somewhat creamy tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, banana, and perhaps a bit of prunes. Interesting. The flavor is pretty much the same with the addition of some cloves, which I didn’t pick up in the aroma. Nice smooth body. Very solid. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
22 oz bottle Banana, clove, yeast, wheat, all in a big aroma. The look is muddy, brownish colored with a beige colored head. The taste is the same as the smell but not quite as vibrant. rougeau13 (3188) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Dark muddy brown with a medium beige head and some lacing. Aroma of sour yeast, caramel, banana, clove, and paint. Taste is sweet and yeasty with a bready flavor and a slight medicinal quality. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Aroma of mainly caramel malt. Poured a dark dark brown color with a khaki head. Tasted like it has the making to be a truly ground breaking beer. The palate poured through my body like the Colorado Rapids. Overall, malty goodness. That is all. Cheers fuckers jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Hazy brown with a small beige head. Aroma is of malt, cocoa, light banana, clove and toffee. Taste is of malt, booze, chocolate, banana, and a hint of roasted malts in the finish. One of their better beers IMO. This one is solid. Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Deep brown pour with ring of tan head. Aromas of chocolate, banana, and clove. Flavors of nuts, more clove, and chocolate covered banana. Reminds me of the original banana stand on Balboa Island. Surprisingly good brew from Rahr. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bomber from Secret Santa 2011 (KAggie97; thanks man!). Pours dark and murky, brownish red, with a small short-lived tan head. Aromas of cocoa, chocolate-covered banana, and banana bread; I love the banana esters present here. The flavor is banana bread, some yeast, and mildly funky notes, as well as sweet malty undertones. Solid stuff. Thanks Santa!  KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a thick mud brown with a nice off-white head. Nose is chocolate pudding, cocoa powder, molasses-infused dark chocolate, and sweetened roasted nuts. Flavor is vinuous coffee and caramel, with a light cherry chocolate finish that brings a light, pleasant mesquite smoke essence. Lingering mouthfeel. Nice beer. Not as much molasses as a typical dopple bock but to me, that’s a good thing.
