Poured from a 500 mL swing-top bottle into a weizen glass. Stamped 2320174.

A: Deep brown body that take on an opaque black appearance in the glass. 2 fingers of slightly rocky, off-white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Nutty, chocolate notes with underlying banana, raisin, plum. Light coffee. A bit of port, a touch of smoke.

T: Lightly tangy, roasted malt notes open, intermingled with sweeter, fruitier wheat notes. A tempered, noble-type hopping arises late for a semi-dry finish. Minimal alcohol presence. Lingering wheat-fueled fruit and spice in the aftertaste. This one starts a schwarzbier and ends a hefe.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Feels like a hefeweizen.

O: Struck me as an above average hefeweizen with some flourishes of schwarzbier-like malt that are more present in the nose than on the palate. A bit different from other dunkelweizen that I've had. More of a nutty, tangy roasted malt than the typical dried fruit, raisin. Easy drinker. Good stuff.

Prost!

I found this to be very delicious. Doesn't taste like a weizen at all. Rich, roasty, smooth and delicious. Amazing inch plus head that doesn't shrink as you drink. This is a luxurious dark beer. Highest recommendation.

Sampling right now on 9/29/14. Comes in a single 500ml (NOT listed on the bottle) or 16.9 ounce bottle with a ceramic stopper for $2.99 at Hy-Vee in Council Bluffs, Iowa that I bought today. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a .5l 'Paulaner' weissber vase glass.

Pours a very dark brown if not a bitch black as you can't see through it. Has a good 3-finger foamy creamy thick beige head that settles down to a good 3+mm near the end of the drink. A good amount as well as sediment is seen in the bottom of the glass as well as in the bottom of the bottle. On the label it says "Hefe-weizen must be drunk from the glass-never from the bottle". No problem there. The aroma is of wheat with some hop aromas. The taste is even better than the aroma and has some sweet toffee and brown sugar in the mix as well. Very pleasant and goes down very easy. A tasty brew with medium body and perfect carbonation. A great brew!

Great beer. It was like a great Schwarzbier but with the added flavors and tickle of a great Weizen. Almost like Monchof Schwarzbier made love to some Vitus and had a healthy offspring. I had it in a glass as always, but it was funmny to read the text on the back which read something to the tune of: "Hefe-weissbier should always be enjoyed from a glass, never the bottle". Looked nice and dark with substantial aromatic head. Carbonation was nice and the drinking was refreshing. Good stuff.
