Aromas of rye, toasted bread crust, and ever so faintest touch of sweet caramel. Hops and weizen yeast rather nonexistent. Appears dark brown with garnet highlights. Decent enough head with foam lacing that sticks around. Tastes wonderful with full rye malt character. Touch of smoke and crystal give it great complexity. Sweet upfront but finishes dry. About medium to medium-full mouthfeel. Overall, a wonderful treat. Great change of pace from your usual IPA or stout.

Poured from a 22-oz bottle into large tulip glass. Leftover from NHC 2013 grand banquet. Drinking with charcoal smoked ribs tonite. Should pair exquisitely.

Pours a dark brown hazy root beer hue with about four fingers of tan head. Aroma does evoke weizen yeast spice and dark sweet malts with a whiff of smoke and fruit. The beer starts with some caramel and biscuit malts and a vanilla bourbon-like rounded sweetness that is really quite nice. The smoke is subdued in my view; do not be deterred by this. The weizen yeast flavors are also subtle, at least to my palate. I don't get much banana but there is some plum on the finish. Peppery spice makes an appearance but once more is mellow. The malts add coffee flavors and the rye adds a grainy spicy bite but overall the beer is smooth and balanced. Think brown porter with weizen yeast rather than a dunkelweizen.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma is caramel malt with slightly sour, spicy rye and light grassy hops. Flavor is a very well melded caramel and biscuit malt, rye and slight nuttiness that is somewhat subdued, but so nicely integrated that it is quite satisfying. An unexpectedly nice medium creamy body with excellent mouth feel. A nice, understated roggenbier that seems a bit bland at first, but won me over with a very satisfying balance and flavor. A nice roggenbier that I will buy again.

Dark brown color. 2-finger tan head with very fine texture in the carbonation with a medium+ retention.

Rye bread, banana, vanilla icing, milk chocolate and a hint of bubblegum.

Strong rye flavor on the palate, banana oli, cold coffee and a little bit of charcoal.

Medium bodied with a little bit of an acidic mouthfeel. Medium length.
