3.75/5 rDev +6.2%
12 oz. bottle. Quite dark and opaque, aggressively carbonated. 3+ fingers of foam with nice head retention and lacing. Nice interplay of roasted malt character and traditional hefeweizen character on the nose. Cocoa-like roast malt is dominant, while the yeasty phenols take a back seat.
Roasted malt again comes to the forefront on the palate. Overly fizzy and aggressive carbonation holds this back from being great. Otherwise, this is a very good dunkelweizen.

A - Dark borwn pour with no lacing, but visible carbonation. Foam pours high and settles fast.
S - Scents of bubblegum, licorice, and a smoky smell comes from this beer. Pleastly surprised with the complexity of this beer.
T - Some dry hops and a cloying spicy bite are noted. Sweetness is on the back end along with some banana and clove notes typical of a hefeweisen.
M - Really wish the carbonation was toned down a bit. Its simply too much. Beyond that this beer leaves a spicy bite in the finish and feels fairly light.
O - This is a nice beer. If it wasn't so "bubbly" I'd dare say its one of the best domestic dunkels out there. I've had the maibock from Ramstein as well and I would try this and other offerings if I get the chance.

3.4/5 rDev -3.7%
12oz bottle poured into a weizen glass
A: Dark brown with a one-finger head that settles to a lingering lacing
S: Roasted malts with hints of coffee, burnt popcorn and earth
T: Overall this tastes like toast along with a solid dose of caramalized bananas & a hint of well-browned marshmallows. Intriguing but not particularly balanced/connected
M: Medium-bodied, a bit of roast, cream & carbonation
O: Overall it's tasty and doesn't have any distinct flaws, yet it lacks typicity and a sense of direction

12 ounce bottle with best before dating notched onto the side of the label.
Pours quite dark, darn near black. Dark tan head, that stays and leaves nice looking scattered lacing.
Nose of some rum and bananas.
On the palate I get more bananas, dark malts, some light smokyness, and drying hops. Long and tasty finish. Flavorful, quality creation from Ramstein. They put out high quality brews and this one is no different. Worth seeking out and enjoying.
