COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark wheat has a bold, dark color that surprises the drinker with a mild clean flavor. This beer is a black version of an American Wheat, with some locally malted corn added for a drier, more drinkable, local flavor. Germans would consider this a beer an American version of a Dunkel Weizen.

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.

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.

Can poured into a pint glass -- Pours a deep dark brown with active fizzies and very little white head. Smells like dark malt, hint of roast. First flavors are roasty and bland, as it sits and warms it opens up very nicely. Light malt sweetness that melds with the darker malts nicely. Recommend serving above fridge temps.
