Brief write-up. This is an unusual brew - a very dark weizenbock with a healthy hop profile. However, it lacks ester notes, coming off as a regular dark wheat ale. It's best feature is it's drinkability. Really, though, it's not anything special, and I won't look for it again.

2.94/5: I'm certainly left frigid over this one

A - Pours a dirty dark brown with 1/2" head that dissipates, some initial lacing that disappears in minutes as well.
S - Hints of malt and alcohol; neither very stong; not a lot going on here
T - Very light malt and subtle hop and bitter; slight bitter aftertaste
F - Light body and low carbonation (could use a touch more); slight dryness on the finish
O - I was anticipating something different based on the smell and appearance, but the hop and bitter aroma was unnoticable to me, but was not mistaken on the taste; While the dark fruits and spices may have been there, I didn't pick them up. Overall, decent, but nothing magical.

I was a little surprised on pouring this beer because I was expecting a pale ale based on the label. What came out of the bottle was a medium brown with a smell more like a porter. The taste also was much like a porter. The beer was good, just not what I was expecting.

Doesn't get anywhere near 10 below here, but hey lets give a whirl anyway! Popping the top I get a cocoa smell with some malt in the background. Pours to a translucent deep brown with a tan multi-bubble head that recedes quickly.. On the taste this brew hits with some chalky cocoa upfront with some earthy hops and transitions to a sweeter chocolate and toasted malt background with a spicy but clean flat bitter finish. Mouthfeel is a little thin but with all the flavors its not an issue. This is unbelievably a 7.4 ABV, would never guess that. My type of brew: standout basic flavors (particularly cocoa), not complex, but very drinkable.

Waxy, burnt taste upon sipping. Syrupy and very little carbonation. Aftertaste is a mix of chocolate and black licorice. Was hoping for a stronger fruit taste, but instead it's just spice and staleness.
