Strong banana with moderate cloves. Cloudy dark and unfiltered. Not a huge dunkel fan. This is a middle of the road dunkle. psuCE03 (135) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Brown orange opaque color with limited head but plenty of carbonation. Malty flavor with hints of carmel (and maybe clove?). Medium bodied but a little thin, overall very enjoyable. steve1966 (131) - Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Thin reminds me of the crystal clear lighter German types nothing offensive here slight clove and banana taste Miss that old Michelob Dunkel Weiss they had a few years ago that was a nice dark beer. Decent attempt at this style it works and sure beats a Bud. craven5000 (120) - Westville, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2012
A dirty gold colored body. A light medium body. Banana is very light but present. Over all the flavors are light and a bit watery. Easy to drink and crisp. I would like stronger flavors but of the flavors were disliked. This one is going on my try again list. RGDave (113) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On tap at Circa, High Bridge, NJ. Clean lines. Beer pours dark brown, close to black, with a lively just off-white head. Aroma is toasty banana, obvious but not agressive. Taste is at once sweet and toasted malt, with continuing banana overtone; finish is sweet and toasty - a nice offering from Sam Adams.

Pours an attractive caramel/toffee hue and cloudy, thank goodnes. Pleasant aroma of roasty, toasty grains and a touh of sweetness. Body feels a little light, but the flavor profile is there if only a bit weakly. To style, but too conservative and bland to be memorable. UriahHeep (105) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Attractive dark amber cloudy appearance. Aroma is earthen and fruity. Unfiltered, with some tiny sediment visible. Solid wheat malt backbone with some nice fruitiness and prominent clove and other spices. Not as full of a body as I would hope for, which is the one knock against Sam Adams, compared to some of the other breweries out there that are willing to double the strength of their recipes and create a truly strong beer. (To their credit, Sam Adams did something akin to this with their Imperial Series). Anyway, the yeast gives this brew a pleasant aroma and refreshing flavor. Short but clean finish. nhamilton (104) - Cibolo, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Pours to a large tan head and has an amber appearence. The flavor is strong, but not over powering. It goes down smooth enough and doesn’t leave an aftertaste. iNBe (100) - USA - OCT 21, 2010
I had this in a variety pack. Sweeter than expected. Fruity flavor. But still enjoyable. spjensen (97) - Davis, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark with a healthy head. Aromas just like a wheat beer but it seems a bit ’burnt’. Finishes surprisingly easy.
