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.

VengefulOdin (193) - , Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Aroma - Initial smell reminds me almost of Guinness Draught, with a hefty roasted malt character accentuated by Irish yeast. The roastiness gives way to more of a stale toast note as it warms up a bit. Plunging my nose further into the glass I get some deep fruity notes, almost raisin or plum like. Appearance - Stout-like, with a deep black color. Khaki head is composed of pinhead sized bubbles that stick around for a little while, though I wish they would last a bit longer. The beer looks as though its unfiltered, as there are no highlights when its held up to the light. Thats somewhat difficult to discern due to the dark color. Taste - Bready, chocolately, and slighlty fruity. Think a dark, toasted bread (rye or pumpernickel) dusted with bittersweet dark chocolate, chased with a Coke, and youre in the ballpark. Very smooth and drinkable. No discernable off flavors. Wheat comes through somewhat, this drinks almost like a wheat stout. Roast character is less pronounced in the taste as compared to the aroma, but its still easy to pick up. Mouthfeel - Low to moderate bitterness, with a smooth character that benefits from not being overcarbonated. Mouthfeel is moderate to full, most likely due to the wheat used in the brewing process. Finishes neight dry nor sweet, instead aiming (and hitting) somewhere exactly in the middle. Overall - Due to a camping trip that went awry, Ive been somewhat partial to this beer. Now, as the nights get longer and the temperature drops further, I find myself enjoying this more, as its a style-straddling beer that doesnt hold itself to one style or definition. If youre in the mood for a roasty wheat beer that goes down relatively easy, then this is the beer for you. This beer would go awesome with a classic Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.

This smells like corn--and I guess there is corn in it so that makes sense. Otherwise it is fairly bland with a touch of roast character. Its got a nice creamy texture which is its best feature. No real off flavors either. Not bad.
