The aroma of this beer just climbs out of the glass, slides across the table, and grabs you by the nostrils. There is so much there - take your time picking them all out. It's spicy; but what spices? Sort of pumpkin-pie spice, but not exactly. Clove is dominant, but not by much. There is also some bubblegum (in a good sweet smelling way, not in an infected, phenolic way) and some spicy rye-bread smell. Just wonderful. Was many minutes before taking the first sip just enjoying the cornucopia of smells.
The flavor has a smoky character, and the mouthfeel is full and smooth and round like a good dunkelweizen should be.
Nothing at all offensive in this beer, and it packs a plethora of flavor and aroma. Buy a case of this whenever you get the chance!

brown, very clear, and with ample carbonation producing a nice two inch white foamy head. This quickly faded leaving behind nothing more then a thin film on top and a decent side glass lace presence. Very nice overall look though and there was definitely an unfiltered presence as the sediment was just well, settling down to the bottom. Aroma was full of wheat as one would expect from it. Lots of earthy and grain like tones that were mixed in with and accented very nicely by a bit of a yeasty presence. The aroma was slightly musty with a touch of a bready like quality, much thicker then I thought it would be.
Very nice here. A very rich full bodies flavor would be the best way to describe it. Normally I find wheat beers to always have the same overall flavor profile, however this one was a step up, and maybe due to the dark wheat. The flavor just seemed to come off as a bit more complex with a lot of earthy and grain like flavors. There was defiantly a lot of yeast and wheat mixed in and I even picked up the presence of some dark fruit like flavors. Overall very pleasing and a very nice palate about it. A nice smokey kind of flavor started to settle in towards the end of the session and almost gave it kind of a smoked presence in the finish
