3.61/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours cola brown with a half finger head that's light tan in color. Sub-par retention, breaking down to a thin, broken layer of suds.

Smell - Caramel, light roast, wheat.

Taste - Follows the nose. Caramel, light chocolate notes, hints of roast and a light grassy hop note.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with lively carbonation. Smooth, slick texture.

Overall - Good, but calling it a dunkelweizen is quite misleading. This is as Americanized as Widmer's 'Hefeweizen'. Flavor is akin to an American brown ale. Had they just left out 'dunkelweizen', I would seriously consider giving it a higher overall score, but until then...

Pours a dark cloudy brown head, a medium beige head some light lacing. Aroma and taste is of dark lightly toasted caramel malt, yeast and some grain flavors. A medium body with light carbonation. Finish is lightly toasted caramel malt, yeast and grain. Aroma and taste seem a bit mild for the style, but still an ok drinking brew.

Pours a half finger of head on a dark brown, almost black body.
The aroma has some chocolate malt, and some burnt malt.
The taste starts with burnt malt, and dies out with some chocolate and mild sweet note. Short but good profile.
The texture is crisper with soft edges.
It tastes more like a black lager than a dunkelweizen. Either way it's not bad

nice pour, good head, great color. Tastes closer to a light porter than a wheat. Not much wheat taste or character here. Overall, very nice flavor with a crisp, clean finish. Some malty and possibly some choclately flavors. Overall, a well done beer sitting above average on the scale !!!!

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

a: Dark, muddy brown; poured with frothy, khaki colored head.

s: Stout like roasty cocoa and coffee, not much else.

t: Same as the smell, nothing resembling a dunkelweizen. Heavy roasty malts that belong in a stout and a hint of tart grains.

m: Full bodied but fizzy rather than creamy carbonation.

o: As a dunkel, this misses by a mile. I don't think it even uses a hefe yeast. As a wheat stout, this is good beer.

Im not going to go through a full tasting review of this beer, Im just too disappointed, this does not taste in anyway like a dunkelweiss

It has far too much roasted malt for a dunkelweiss (coffee, chocolate) and not enough of the characteristic yeasty flavors (clove,banana), quite a disappointment

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with little light transparency and half finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, mildly nutty, slight sour note. Flavor of toasted and caramel malt, hints of chocolate and charred coffee, finishes with light toastiness and light grassy hops. Medium bodied. The malt profile seems closer to a mild porter than a weizen; I'm not getting much wheat character at all. Flavor has nice toasty malt and light chocolate elements, but seems to finish thin with a light sourness. An OK dark malty beer, but not really meeting the dunkelweizen style, and a bit odd for that. This is the second Leavenworth wheat style ale that seemed to be more of a traditionally malted style than a weizen. Odd. OK, but better choices if you're looking for a dunkelweizen.

Pours an appealing dark brown to black with a quickly dissipated head. Mouthfeel is bubbly like most wheat beers. Flavor is lacking for a dunkel the malty taste overpowers the effervescent nature of a wheat. Not bad but not great and I'm only reviewing this based on 1 beer picked up at Total Wine from the warm shelf.
