Brown, dark caramel. Light brown foam, abundant.
Weisse smell, with banana and cloves. Then caramel.
At a second try, the caramel is stronger, and there is also a light roasted (hazelnut), and the fruity notes are lighter.
In the taste the classic notes of wheat and caramel, over all.
There is also some roasted hint.
In the aftertaste, after a start of caramel, there is a roasted and lightly burned finish.
Good and thirst quenching beer, after all, even if I'd like it a little less sweet. (493 characters)

(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. (597 characters)

This is an interesting seasonal from Hofbrauhaus (they called it a "DarkWeiz"). Cloudy orange color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a little fruity and a little wheaty. I am not that familiar with the DunkelWeizen style but the flavor was a mixture of malt, cider, banana and caramel. Smooth and mostly drinkable but lopsided. I would go back to the Dunkel next time. (372 characters)
