2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to my sister. Pours a murchy bronze with a very thin light tan coloured head. Disappears super quickly leaving all but the feintest film. Aromas are dominated by fruity esters, predominantly bananas, and bucket loads of yeast. Feint hint of butter which I assume comes from the molasses and a little chlorine. Flavours are somehwat sweet though I still get some chlorine at the back of the pa;ate. Some alcohol burn on the finish. Bugger all carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Somewhat average unfortunately.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy copper orange brown with big fluffy and resilient light tan head and decent lace. Aromas of sweet malts, banana and pitted fruits - rum altogether not evident until trying hard and splashing about. Cloves are less than expected on the aroma. Medium-light body, refreshing dry - lightly sweet finish - very easy going for the ABV. Spice/cloves subtle, balanced with a bit more malt sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Reddish-brown pour with a medium-sized collapsing white head. Nose is dark fruits, raisins, bananas, burnt sugar and a subtle musky spiciness like a dry dark rum. Flavour is medium sweet with those dark rum elements coming through at the end of the palate. Dry lingering finish but low bitterness. Medium-full body. An interesting brew for the adventurous but I gotta say that a prefer a straightforward Dunkelweizen.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) The only thing that falls short of excellent is the appearance - it’s a cloudy coppery brown with a short-lived tan head - not very appealing. Lovely rich fruity aroma - mainly raisins with some banana and a nice spicey touch. Full bodied with a smooth creamy carbonation. Flavour starts with fruitiness, mainly raisins and develops complexity with esters and spice and sweetness with caramel. The finish has a mix of bananas and spice, but little bitterness. Overall a very impressive beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a course head that dissapears pretty quickly. Ok nose, pretty typical of a Dunkleweizen with banana and esters dominant, no hint of rum. Pretty heavy on the carbonation. Not bad on the pallet, tastes ok, banana and butterscotch. Not getting much from the molasses, and can’t pick up any rum, they must have out one shot in the whole batch. Overall this beer talks itself up but doesn’t come through with the goods. End result is an ok high alc Dunkleweizen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red body with no head. Banana noticeable on the aroma, a touch of cinnamon alongside the banana in the taste, smooth and medium body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small off white head. Light spice and chocolate in the aroma, rather sweet, has a hint of dark fruits and banana. The rum scent is noticable but rather faintly. Molasses and subtle spice dominates the flavour profile with some heavy banana and sticky sweetness. Very easy drinking. The rum could have come out a little more and this would have been a little more interesting. A good effort though

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the Local Taphouse shop. Nice malty flavours. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and raisins, with tropical notes. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Red, with no head.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy dark brown with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows molasses, banana, clove and doughy wheat. No sign of the rum.
Flavours include more doughy wheat, banana, and sweet molasses. Pretty much exactly as the aroma promises. Quite drinkable.
Carbonation could be a little higher.
The molasses makes for an interesting spin on the dunkelweizen style, personally I’d like to notice more of the rum.
