Pours an ebony black with a two finger khaki head that settles to a thin layer that mostly sticks to the rim of the glass. Aroma is nothing but dark malt: roast, chocolate, coffee, toasted wheat bread, and a good dose of yeasty tartness with slight spice (allspice?). I get some sweetness in the flavor that isn't apparent in aroma, otherwise all the other malt characteristics come through in taste. Bitterness is mostly lacking in this beer with more of a light tartness coming on the back end. The feel is creamy and full bodied, with a sweet finish.

If I didn't know better I'd swear there was some oats in this brew. It's creamy and varied in flavor/aroma. And it's not too heavy. One of the best Weizens I've had in a long time.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Big foamy off white head, reminds me of a root beer float. Pitch black with hints of dark brown around the edges of the tall hefe glass. A thick yeast cake at the bottom of the bottle.

S: Light fruity aroma, (very traditional german lager like). a hint of roast. woody, earthy hop precensce.

T: Earthy and woody with very low wheat flavor. I don't detect any of the clove/banana esters that come with traditional weizens. Spicy hop vibe that lingers at the end.

M: Moderatly dry with high carbonation. a bit of a mouth drying astringency

O: If I didn't look at the label I would have guessed this as a straight Schwarzbier. Not bad, but I do like the esters the come through with hefe yeasts which i didn't get in this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16 oz. swing top bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours out almost black, shows a slight ruby color in the edges. A nice 2-3 fingers of light tan colored head off the pour that eventually fades to a thick retentive layer. A bit of lacing. Maybe cloudy, somewhat hard to tell cause of the dark color.

Predominately fruits, plums mostly, they come out nicely as it warms. Fruity esters

Sweet toasty, slightly dark bready malts. Plums with some fruity esters, maybe a bit of blueberry and chocolate. Finishes light with just a hint of tartness.

Light body, somewhat smooth and creamy.

A fairly decent beer, tastes authentic but not really a favorite style of mine.

This is an excellent dark wheat beer.

Not quite fully black, it has a huge, creamy tan head slowly shrinking.

Aroma is rich coffee candy, chocolate.

Taste is balanced, zesty-winy, roasty grain (gentle but long-lasting), not strong but well-rounded and very engaging, a little like a schwarzbier.
