Cask pour at Churchkey, finished w/ ginger & chocolate. Dunkelweizen doesn’t care as well as a cask pour, resulting in a dull pour. Ginger dominates the aroma, softened by a bit of chocolate sweetness. Additives add some flavor, but hard to tell what the underlying brew would taste like. Slick body, ginger lasts through to finish. Don’t mess with the Reinheitsgebot. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2015
