Pours a thin head on a dark, dark brown colored body.
The aroma is a rich malt, caramel and a little lemon zest.
The taste is malty sweet forward, molasses in the middle and finishes with a mild bitter note.
The texture is a little sticky with low to moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable sipper.

Poured from bomber to glass. Great, dark color with a slight ruby hue. Thick, tan head and left lots of lace to decorate the glass. I didn't pick up crisp citrus aroma as listed by the brewer. It was a tad sweet with coffee/bitter aftertaste. Medium viscosity, above average essence of alcohol. I pulled it out of a fridge at 37deg but as it warmed to room temp the flavor and mouthfeel was enhanced. It was a real enjoyable beer. I'll be drinking again, for sure. A bit of discrepancy on style per the brewer's site, this one and RB. Others list as Dunkelweiss/Dunkelweizen.

It wasn't 10 Degrees Below when I drank this, perhaps 10 Degrees Celsius above. A full 22 ounces to drink. On to the beer:

Very dark brown and almost black in color, topped with half an inch of head and decent lacing.
The aroma starts off like a winter warmer; solid toastiness upfront, fennel, a note of licorice, allspice, molasses. Surprisingly complex is the aroma.

The taste is acceptable, even if it doesn't equal the quality of the aroma. Flavors include figs, plum, a vague toastiness, and molasses. The alcohol hides itself well, but despite its size, I was hoping for a fuller mouthfeel.

One of many ways to be happy during the colder season is to drink this winter warmer. It's....hold on....it's a weizenbock? I wouldn't have suspected.

Great winter beer that tastes more like Jubelale than a Weizenbock. I got lots of hops and lots of malt and a very smooth luscious mouthfeel. Everything I wanted in a Winter Warmer. Will need to buy a few of these while they last . Great stuff and a little under the radar

A- It pours a cloudy coffee color with tan flecks of yeast throughout. It sports a huge khaki head. Head retention is excellent, and there are loosely formed rings of lace as I drink. The head has a marshmallow-like consistency.

S- Coffee, caramel, toasty malt, vanilla, with a hint of cocoa.

T- It starts with dark coffee, which comes across a bit smokey, and a hint of caramel. Hints of vanilla cut in at times, eventually leading to a finish with mild citrus notes. The roasty, toasty flavours never fully subside, making for a long finish. I think that I detect a mild astringent hop bitterness in the finish as well.

M- Medium bodied, with gentle carbonation. It has a velvety mouthfeel.

O- pretty damn good. I would buy this again.

22oz bottle into pint glass, gotta get myself something skinnier for these wheaty occasions

It pours a rich molasses brown from the bottle and has a rather short caramel latte head. Smells of black cherry chocolate malt with some interesting esters.There's a little bit of alcohol in the nose. The taste hits with bittersweet toasted malt. Some medium-roast coffee beans; dark dried stone fruits; and a hint of roasted nuts add a warm feeling. An inkling of hops, perhaps notes of cedar, play in the background almost like a spice rather than a main ingredient. It's not thick or syrupy like many full-bodied, similarly flavored winter beers. The carbonation is light and the aftertaste is subtle, just a bit of ethanol warmth and bittersweetness. Generally a good winter beer but it brings nothing super original to the table.

I wonder if it's a actually lagered–-I think Weizenbocks are supposed to be bottom-fermented(?) It tastes very similar to many Winter Warmers of the west, particularly Pyramid Snow Cap and New Belgium Snow Day. I would mistake for an ale in an instant, and also would not guess that it is a wheat beer did I not know the style. I'm an ale lover, so if it is a lager then good on ya scuttlebutt.
