4.24/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Dated 2014.

A: Dark brown body that appears opaque in the glass. 1.5 finger of dense, creamy tan head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Lightly roasted malt with notes of almonds, nuts, raisin. Accompanied by lesser wheat notes, banana, tropical fruit. Light cacao, coffee. Molasses. Faint noble-type hops.

T: Semi-sweet wheat and toasty malts kick off. Turns a tad tart before a gentle hop presence closes things out fairly dry. Lingering tang and nutty malt notes in the aftertaste. Alcohol presence is light.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Lightly creamy in texture. Smooth.

O: Very nice brew. Well integrated roasted/porter-type malt and wheat-fueled fruit. Complex and satisfying.

Prost!

More weisen than porter. Good taste of banana ans roasted malt. Aromas of lemon and chocolate. Smooth and medium roundness. Weird mix but well-done!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque very dark deep mahogany in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation rising very slowly along the edges of the glass and some very faint cola brown highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: The smell of this beer reminds me of fresh baked gingerbread - a combination of bready malts, chocolate malts, and dark wheat malts with a lighter aroma of banana/clove from the yeast and just a hint of molasses/brown sugar.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready, chocolate, and dark wheat malts with just a hint of molasses/brown sugar sweetness. There is a light to moderate flavor of banana and clove from the yeast towards the finish and a hint of dark chocolate bitterness which lingers slightly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This is a very interesting mixture of styles and one that I found a decent article on the internet explaining the historical origins - reminds me of a porter blended with a dunkelweizen. Nice complexities of flavor and aroma and very enjoyable. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy dark reddish brown in color. It poured with a finger high dark beige head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: The smell has moderate aromas of gingerbread cookies.
T: Like the smell, the taste is reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, without any ginger. Hints of chocolate and red berries are also noticeable.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a really nice blend of a porter and a hefeweizen. The wheat makes it easy to drink and adds fruity flavors and the Porter lends some complexity adding cookie-like flavors.

3.89/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Deep brown, massive three fingers of tan head, some lace. Smell is a mix of banana, chocolate and brown sugar, light roast with some spice and dark bread, smell is mostly weisse with just a bit of porter coming through. Taste is of banana and dark bread, mid palate roast, nutty and malty with a spicy aftertaste with a closer of bready malt. Medium carbonation, full creamy body. This was pretty good but a bit of a let down based on my own personal expectations, at times this came off as more of a winter warmer/christmas beer but the end result is still a very drinkable beer.
