COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slam Dunkel was a small batch release in 2007. We had such an overwhelming response that we had to put it in the seasonal rotation. We also decided, as brewers, we couldn’t live without drinking this beer every year! This 7% Double Dunkelweizen is unfiltered and made with over 50% wheat malt along with pale, munich, and a touch of chocolate to give it the traditional color and flavor. Bitterness is subdued to allow the Weihenstephen yeast to shine through with those traditional notes of banana and clove. Available in June in bottles and draft. Recipe by Chris Wilson, Head Brewer.

THOUGHTS: The alc. isn’t very noticable. A nice summer beer that would be nice even in the winter. It is a shame this is a one time only brew. I would definitely try it again. I recommend it to Dunklewiezen fans. A little hight alc than some dunklewiezens. TECHNICAL: Sampel at Weyerbache, growler from Weyerbacher, and on tap at Witch Brew and Grey Lodge. Poured a medium brown to dark orange with beautiful carbonation and a large, off-whtie head that left good lacing. The aroma was moderate milk chocolate malt, light yeast, banana and bubble gum, very light alcohol and wheat. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and acidic and sour, while the finish was moderately to heavily sweet and moderately acidic with a short duration. The dominant flavors were wheat, banana and some milk chocolate. There was a little something unpleasant too, but it was very underlying and I couldn’t put a finger on what it was. The light to medium body was slightly watery with fizzy carbonation and a slighlty chalky, lightly astringent and lightly alcoholic finish.

Draft from the brewery. Hazy brown color with a medium head. Aroma is nice and malty with some light banana, sugar, and wheat. Flavor has a nice wheat profile with some wheat, sweet banana, and caramel/sugar. Nice example of the style. I’m looking forward to seeing more of these draft-only brews from Weyerbacher.

Poured a murky brown golden color, with a light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, clove, nuts, caramel malts, and a bit of chocolate. Taste of toffee malts, more banana, clove, tart citrus, wheat, bubblegum, and a bit of roast as well. Average mouthfeel, solid beer here.

on tap. a slightly burnt toffee flavor and some type of lemony sourness. a little flat. it’s possible this was a little old. another mediocre beer by weyerbacher.

Draught at Which Brew. Hazy brown amber body with nice head. Aroma is of slight bubblegum, sweet malt, light caramel. Flavor is of the same with a heavy rich malt taste. Very smooth and very drinkable, even at 7.5%. Shame this is an draught only brew, I could see it doing well in bottles.
