Got this bottle at Sam's in Chicago. Bottle had a great little pop when I opened it. Poured with a big light tan foamy, frothy head and some lace. Light typical Bavarian Weisse nose. Flavor was the same but maltier and wheaty. Also a little metallic flavor. Body is good, full with good carbonation. Color is a brownish dark amber. Ok beer, I guess. Had many better dark weisses. Finish is ok. Could be a session if you can get around the metallic thing.

I poured the swing-top bottle into my tall hefeweizen glass and it filled with a velvet brown-orange, hazy liquid with two fingers of head, which quickly reduced to a messy layer of foam.

The smell was enticing. It smells very fresh, spicy, and yeasty. In the nose are fruit, a little clove, and maybe some cinnamon.

On the tongue there was an initial worrisome metallic flavor, flinty almost. There's the sourness of the wheat in there, but not much in the way of the dunkel weizen toastiness or the zingy banana-clove taste of Bavarian wheat ales. There's a side shot of bitterness on the swallow.

While a dunkel should have that natural carbonation that gives these refreshing brews their zest, there's plenty of that here, but without the flavor profile to help balance the carbonation, the beer falls a bit flat (no pun intended!). So the mouthfeel is slightly thin because of the missing weight of flavor.

I almost wonder if I got a bad batch, although the drink before date is June 2008 (and this is January).

I will always judge dunkelweizens to the perfect one I had in the pub just outside Charlemagne's Dom in Aachen on a rainy day in June 2004. Ayinger comes closest on a consistent basis, and the Weihestaphaner (sp?) is always quite good, too. Keep the search going.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours hazy medium brown in color with a modest off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin soapy sheen.

Aroma is dry and musty, with apple and generous spices - notably cinnamon.

Taste is what the nose led me to expect. Caramel and pale malt, woody and mildly nutty. Hops bring balancing earthy bitterness. Finish musty and a little sour.

Mouthfeel is light-medium in body.

Overall, bland and uninspired.

Poured a nice creamy dark brown with a big fluffy brown head.

The smell is very light with the classic banana nut bread German hefe smell, just on the thin side with a bit of smoke.

The taste is very light with just a touch of dark malts some light yeasty flavor with banana, smoke, and some sweetness.

The mouthfeel is light and watery, not much substance.

A very watered down Dunkel, I would skip this in the future.

After a very slow pour this one still had a gigantic tan head perched atop a murky brown body. I'd had it's sister beer recently so was prepared for the enormous pillow, which eventually receded to leave minimal lacing. I'd give it a 5 for the head but a 1 for the horrible looking liquid, making it an average of 3.

A very faint aroma of perhaps wheat and maybe banana and a bit of butter.

The taste was also very mellow. Nothing really different about it than what the aroma suggested. It's not bad tasting, yet it's very weak. Needs something extra to spice it up.

Mouthfeel was slightly on the thin side, and quite flat.

As mentioned, I'd had it's sister beer (the Weissbier) and have to say I much preferred that one. This schwarze weisse just didn't cut it.

Pours a dark red amber. So much rocky head it's almost unbelievable. Huge amounts of lacing and decent carbonation. Only faint aromas, though. Some mint, a hint of lavendar, tiny bit of vanilla. Not much else...maybe a tiny bit of bubblegum in there. Unique so far. Weird flavor. Very thin, unfortunately. There's some of the aforementioned bubblegum notes in there. Very easy drinking. Too easy-drinking if you ask me. No big hop or malt characteristics at all. Kind of like a lite dark beer. I don't like this, but you could probably session it all day as it's mostly water. Don't bother with this folks, even though it's relatively cheap. You get what you pay for.

3/24/2007 $2.39 500 mL 5.00% Notched Use before 5/06.

Appearance:

Thank god for the flip top locking the cork down, because this thing exploded! Pours an odd cream soda/iced tea color that isn't very appealing. Topped by a thin persistent tan head.

Aroma:

Sugary caramel and wet cardboard. Not a good sign.

Taste/Mouthfeel:

Unpleasant astringent mouthfeel leads off this sickly sweet mess of a beer. This is a year past it's prime, and I hope that explains the flavors that require me to rinse my mouth after sipping this atrocity.

From the ceramic-lidded swing top bottle, consumed right after the Weiss. this poured with a less-pronounced head, looking more like a regular dunkel bier than dunkelweiss. The aroma, too, is much more malty than yeasty ... with a big sweet cookieness to it. Likewise the flavor was like a sweet Girl Scout treat ... very sugary. Light and slippery, this was closer to a homebrewed soda than a dunkelweiss. (#2727, 2/25/2007)
