Thanks to my wife's step-dad for getting me this beer (he works for Lufthansa).

It pours a nice dark brown, with a light beige, foamy head.

Wheaty type smells, some caramel, overall it's very good.

The taste is of wheat and caramel, with roasted malt at the finish.

Good mouthffel, based on taste.

Who can drink these?... I can drink these!
If you have an opportunity to get your hands on this beer, don't pass it up.
This is one of the finest Dark Wheat beers I have tasted, although I am far from an expert on the style.

(500 ml bottle, bought in Norway.) Pours with the typical large & lingering weissbier head, colour of the beer is brown, not black as the name suggests. Slightly hazy. Pleasant aroma of fresh baked bread and weissbier yeast, hints of dark syrup and caramel. Flavour has a slight roastiness and some farmhouse bread character, smooth and pleasant to drink, but not very complex. Just enough hops to leave a pleasant aftertaste, but like most weissbiers the aftertaste does not last "forever". This is a decent but unpretentious beer, a nice accompaniment with a meal or as a refreshment on its own.

500 mL bottle picked up at the Perekrestok; best before 26 June 2014. Hofbrau Munchen is good at all and this particular sort is well. Served chilled not well.

Final Grade: 4.00, overall it is good Dunkel Weizen
Serving type: bottle (which is not good because usual)

I had this on tap at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, presented in a 0.5L weisse glass. It was a dark copper color, very hazy, with a light tan (almost white) foam on top that lasted half-way through the session. The aroma was correct in my opinion, bananas and cloves all the way. This translated to the taste as well, nice estery flavors from the yeast and good solid mouthfeel, not thick per se but it coated the mouth very well. Solid and drinkable, I liked this best from the Hofbrauhaus. But I'm partial to weizenbocks and dunkel weisse beers.

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

A: Coloration reddish-brownish, semi translucent, abundant foam head wide ivory hue, its dissipation is slow and residual. Constant heavy carbonation.

S: Aroma with acid dyes, minimal perception of banana and Hops.

T: Very easy to drink, their flavors are subtle, making it lighter, the acidity is what most stands out, did little to end widespread.
