2.5/5  rDev -33.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A- Excellent retention on a off white head that covers a murky brown body. Fine carbonation bubbles climbing up the bottom half of my weizen glass, disappearing in to a darker upper half. Lacing is close to none.

S- Cracked grains a hint of chocolate malt, not much going on here at all!

T- Barely better than the nose. Starts of with some grainy wheat, a little dark malt and fruit. I got absolutely no banana or clove.

M- It starts of light in the mouth and builds, the finish is slightly chewy. The carbonation feels ok for the style.

O- MILD! This is the boringest Dunkel I've ever had, nothing stands out. This is just as bad as the hefe, scratch that it's definitely worse. I guess I should of expected this.

Picked this up at Oak Barrell in Hagerstown. Excellent looking beer, darker than many which I liked, had that delicious look. Smell was odd, more of a caramel than wheat. Taste was outstanding, very smooth and easy to drink. This was quite the surprise, I liked it very much but may not buy often as others I like more that cost less.

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

500 mL bottle poured into a straight-sided glass.

Appearance - Murky dark brown. Huge khaki head. Settles in a while to a thick collar.

Smell - Caramel and lightly chocolatey malt. Some wheat. Yeasty aromas overtake the malt, especially as it warms. Some banana and some brighter esters come through.

Taste - Wheat is stronger here. So are the darker malts. Caramel and some chocolate. Yeastiness takes over. Sharper, brighter flavor into the finish. Grainy finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - I've never thought that the wheat and dark malts have worked all that well together, except in rare circumstances. This is lacking that special quality, but still tastes pretty good.
