Black, med. Pale tan head slowly shrinks to foamy ring and wisps, foamy lace.

Aroma is licorice, tar, toast, hint of clove.

Taste is black pepper, tar, prunes, dark whole wheat (esp in aftertaste), faint hint of licorice, strong clove, and spiciness. It has a hint of a weizenbock crossed with a Belgian ale esp. in yeastiness. It’s very good but not outstanding.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a large, off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat and roasted malt, with a little bit of pepper and cloves. The flavor is more of the same. I get some dark fruit, caramel malt, molasses, wheat and pepper. Very drinkable, with only a little bit of the 9 percent ABV showing. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice dunkelweizen and another good Lips of Faith beer.

On-tap at the Distillery in Savannah, GA on 2/5/11. Poured into a NB Globe.

A - Dark cola brown with a fluffy 3-finger bone-colored head. Retention is great, some streaky lacing is left on the glass.
S - Dark malt, roasted plantains, cloves, and caramel. Huge banana flavors on this, smells great!
T - Very close to the nose, dark roasted banana or plantains dominate with cloves, bubblegum, and a heaping caramel malt backbone. Probably the "roastiest", most banana-forward Dunkelweizen I've had.
M - Smooth and creamy with a medium body and prickly carbonation.
D - Nicely drinkable, but the high ABV would keep this from being sessionable.

Good to see a German effort from New Belgium. It pours redwood color with a tan head. The nose is very fruity with a bit on a bubble gum aroma. Taste is also on the sweet and fruity side with peppery yeasts and a spicy alcohol presence. Medium body seemed a bit over carbonated. A little sweet to drink more than a glass.
