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.

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.

Pours an opaque, murky dark brown-black with a 1 inch foamy dark khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt and some slight cocoa bean aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, burnt coffee, and slight cocoa bean flavors. There is a very mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the smell is somewhat lacking compared to the taste.

Kapuziner Bavarian Schwarz-Weizen has a very thick, roiling, beige head and a cloudy, dark-brown appearance, with a little bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of dark, brown wheat bread, banana, and white pepper. Taste is also of brown wheat bread, charcoal, some subtle banana, white pepper, yeast, and bitterness. Mouthfeel is mostly watery, and Kapuziner Black Wheat finishes wet and raw. Overall, this beer is just too watery in taste, although it does get a little better as it warms up. I suppose it’s worth trying.
