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.

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.

Poured into a weizen glass. Black in color with a white head that settles into a thin lacing. I have never seen a black dunkelweizen before. Is this a stout?

Roasted malt nose with a bit of spiciness. Interesting

More roasted malts. Notes of chocolate. Little to no wheat flavor and plenty of banana and clove like yeast flavor. The body is a bit watery. Nothing like a german style dunkel.

This isnt a bad beer necessarily but its a bad dunkelweizen. Label this a schwartzbier or something and i mightve graded this higher. Needs less roasted malt and more wheat. Good yeast strain though.

This is my third Dunkel of the evening and it is the best. I have had a good experience in the past with Highpoint on tap. The look and smell is point on for the style and and it is comparable to many of the best in class. A good brewer of Germanic styles, Highpoint is a respectable entrant.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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
