This was a pretty decent beer, dark appearance and more roasty than you’d expect from a wheat beer. Tried at a Thunderhead tasting in December 2013. HuskerTan (2337) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - DEC 30, 2013
A- Cocoa, wheat, spices, roasty, leather.
A- Black color, solid liquid, tan head.
T- Wheat, cocoa, toast, medium bitterness.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, dry finish.
O- I had high hopes for this and was more than let down. The flavors just did not work together and it was unbalanced. Simply off-tasting. Looks nice though.

Looks can be deceiving. Pours a nice deep brown with a thin white head. Aroma is like rusty stale water & flavor is non-existent. Finishes clean. Outside of the aroma, it's non offensive & basically a whole lotta nothing.

pours a dark ruby brown with a small tan head. There is a slight toasted malt flavor followed by some creaminess and a light sweetness. It ends with a mild bitterness. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is toast, wheat, chex, and roast. The look is brown in color, clear, with a beige colored head. The taste is malts, wheat, toast, and chex.

Thanks Marshall, for your beer-by-mail contribution to our "balcony time." Opaque dark brown, quick drop-to-rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is dark malt with a small shot of black coffee entering midway through. Carbonation shows late to help balance. Easy to drink, but not memorable. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Can. Roasty malt, light chocolate aroma - rather porterish. Mahogany with a large tan head. Chocolate and light coffee malt - reminds me a little bit of creamy CoCo Wheats. Medium creamy body, soft carbonation. Very nice. thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours a dark cola brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is dry with a hint of coffee. Flavor is very rich. Good coffee notes. Full flavor, nice mouthfeel. Better than I expected. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Can. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aromas are roasted malt, coffee and a little bit of wheat. The wheat is really muted and this remind more of a porter than a what ale. The bready flavors are there, but never overwhelming. I like this one. floydslip (417) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Dark root beer colored brew that settles in sheets before forming an enormous light brown head. Nose of sweet roasted malt with hints of cocoa, but overall pretty non-descript. Taste is a little sweet up front with a bit of toasted malt, which then develops into a slight bitterness. The overall flavor is quite mild, but not boring. Even better, it improves on repeated sips. Quite enjoyable.
