look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: The swing top let out a loud pop when the bottle was opened. The beer is very hazy—yellowish brown hues are visible near the edges of the glass and it appears dark reddish brown when viewed from afar. It poured with a two finger high off white head that has very good retention properties and hardly died down. The beer got murkier as I got near the bottom of the bottle and started to resemble apple cider.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bananas and doughy yeast are present in the nose along bits of sweetness.
T: The taste has flavors of bananas along with notes of apples and sweetness plus hints of clove-like spices.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer was quite fruity and yeasty and felt like it could have had more complexity in the taste and a bit more fullness in the body.

0.5l swing-top bottle. Pours murky brown beer with bubbly tan head, transforming into 2-finger foam in a few minutes. Relatively poor aroma: biscuits, raisin, banana. Actually watery taste as if sterling weizen was diluted, apple tartness, metallic tones, dull undertones. Inconsistent low carbonation, mild body. Disappointing experience.

This was an avearage dunkel that I truly wanted to rate higher yet I just couldn't do it. Someone out there might just love it but alasnot me. There are so many better choices. I bet it tastes great in Germany. That's what I also want to think...and I'm sticking with it.

Brown bottle with a swing top - 1pt. 9 fl oz. (500 ml)

Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse Dark filled my weizen glass with a brown color producing a 1-finger tan head that left behind hit and miss lacing. The nose is malty, sweet and cola like. The flavor is also dominated by malt that is nutty, of cocoa and raisins. Mouth feel is light-medium [for the style] and is not as smooth, rich or creamy as the better dunkelweizens I have had.

Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse Dark is not a bad beer by any means, however, falls short of the better and richer German and American dunkelweizens.

3.54/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a huge head that is matched by its retention and lacing

Smell: Bananas and raisins, along with cocoa, nuts and a hint of clove, but there is a definite tart tone that doesn't appear appropriate

Taste: Banana and dark bread, with a developing cocoa, raisin and nut flavor; a little tartness arrives, after the swallow and dominates the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; lacks the creamy mouthfeel of the better Germans

Overall: The label wasn't notched, so I don't know anything about the age of the beer; I have had this beer twice now and in both cases there were flaws, though not the same flaws; this review is a composite of both tastes but doesn't really capture either as the tart example didn't have the right fruity tones and the one that tasted like a hefe was very flabby

Notched 2/11. Poured into a weizen glass. Opened with a loud pop, and initially poured solid foam. After resting poured better. Poured a medium brown color with a thick foamy head. Head lasted a few moments, but as quickly replenished by massive carbonation rising from the bottom. Once the bubbles stopped, the head disappeared quickly. Smelled slightly sour, with a bit of fruity spice. Taste was a gentle banana bread, with a bit of pepper finish. Felt overly thin in the mouth, coated towards the back of the mouth slightly. Carbonation just felt funny on the tongue. Overall not bad, but seemed a bit bland.
