The colour os very dark brown, almost black (80 EBC), the liquid is cloudy. The firm four finger head is compact and beige; it sinks slowly leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is a bit roasted and semi-sweet. Low levels of alcohol and bitterness. Christmas spices and tart, dried fruits.

The taste is roasted and a bit similar to a porter in the malt profile. Light bitterness. Some dried fruits and exotic spices, hints of soap. Light to medium body. The aftertaste adds a crispy clean bitterness ans some green fruits. The sweet finish is quite light and short with some spicy flavours.

The carbonation is strong with lots of small long-lived bubbles. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A surprisingly light dunkelwiezen. Much more gulpable than the pale one.

500ml bottle. Wide lager glass. Dark brown color, chill hazeappearance. White froth creates a close, thick & lasting crown. Some spots are left. Roasted, lager yeast & flowery aromas rounded by bread & subtle banana notes. Malty, sweet & roasted upfront. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Creamy & dense texture. Low bitterness & slight spicy touch. Long sweet finish. Estery & kind nutty aftertaste. A flavorful beer & nice spot of the Style.

Drink by 9-17-14. 500ml bottle. Dad picked this up in Italy.

Appearance: Diarrhea water never looked so good. Extremely hazy orange/brown color depending on where the light comes through. Small very light tan colored head goes away pretty quickly leaving about 1/16th of an inch of a thin head on top. No lacing that I can see.

Smell: The malts bog down that normally bright dunkelweizen aroma. Caramel malt with a little bit of that banana character typical in the style. Not a strong aroma, but quite nice regardless.

Taste/feel: That's the ticket! This is really nice. The banana character is there plenty, but the caramel malts keep it under control. The after taste is a biscuity flavor with the banana and it's really nice. There's also a very slight tanginess on the end that calls for you to take another sip. The mouthfeel is outstanding with about a medium body with a mid-level amount of carbonation.

I was thinking about going with 3.75s for the taste, feel, and overall rating, but this is an excellent beer for *me* if I want something of the style. Silky feel on it, pleasant lingering slightly spicy and tangy banana biscuit aftertaste... this is some good stuff. My first from Hofbrau, and it won't be my last.

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)
