look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance-Dark orange/brown with a medium off white head.

Smell-Spicy with a hint of banana/fruitiness.

Tastes-Banana is the most prominent flavor. There is also some clove and maybe a hint of chocolate or coffee. Very pleasant flavor. The sweetness is much more subtle than their Original Hefeweissbier and Vitus but I like it almost as much.

Palate-Crisp and refreshing. Medium carbonation.

Overall-Not surprisingly it is great beer from what is probably my favorite brewery. It should please any beer drinker.

Got to love the Dunkel!

Appearance - Dark, murky brown that seems to vary in the glass.. Nice effect and cream head

Smell - Bitter and mild noble hops. Hints of wheat but I wish it was more pronounced when opening

Taste - WOW! Malty, wheat and noble hop beginning. Fades to sweet malt. Great Taste

Mouthfeel - Sticks around with that orginal good flavor for several minutes. Cant beat continuing the right flavors

Overall - Now this is a Dunkel

A-Pours an unusual yellowy, light amber color. Body is lightly milky. Big, cake batter head. Head never dies away. Keeps its girth but doesn't lace too much; its being quite stingy.

S-Estery and spicy with a hint of mustiness and some clear banana fruitiness. Cloves and light cocoa powder.

T-Banana bread with light chocolate undertones. Maybe chocolate chip banana bread muffins? Cloves and well cooked toast. Slightly tart. Tons of different flavors. There is an earthy, nuttiness to it and also a milk chocolate note (Nutella?).

M-Drinks easy but it has that pillowy mouthfeel that a great Dunkel should possess. Creamy yet light.

O/D-This brought a lot to the table. Its cheap, its complex, its easy drinking and its mysterious. I can see why anything with the Weihenstephaner label is regarded as beer royalty.
