3.6/5 rDev -6.7%
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown color with a pretty nice tan head and a tad bit of lacing. The nose is pretty strong with some dark fruits, caramel, and quite a bit of German yeast. Taste is yeasty with a bit of darker malts. Caramel and toffee. A bit boozy in the feel with a nice body. Drinks pretty well but needs to amp up the flavor a bit or bring down the alcohol.

Beautifully well-rounded weizenbock. A great draft seasonal.
Presentation: Draft serving at its own brewpub. Served as a seasonal on the menu, the chalkboard notes Alc. by Vol (7.10%). Served in a shaker pint glass.
A - Hazy brown color with a thin off'-white head (this is another close to the rim pour) and some nice lacing.
S - Sweet, heavy wheat-malt notes with a hint of alcohol.
T - Delicious heavy wheat embracing the alcohol and some dry-dark fruit like notes.
M - Nicely carbonated, with a characteristic wheat texture and fairly smooth.
D - Surprisingly drinkable. Totally worth the second pint unless you feel compelled to switch brews and try something else at this brewpub.
Notes: High-end seasonal, I´m very pleased by this offering and look forward to finding it again. It might well the best beer I´ve ever had at this place.

Being a fan of this style, I was quite happy to see this once-off on tap when I made one of my all-too infrequent visits to the Chophouse. I never tried the one off Dunkel Weizenbock they apparently brewed a few years ago, and so cannot compare it with the previous, similarly styled brew.
Displayed a cloudy and opaque but somewhat light nutty brown color, with an orange hue. An off-white, muted tan head that did not display as much retention as I expected but left some nice lacing.
Lots of banana to the nose. Sweet - maybe with some molasses - and doughy, like an undercooked part of banana bread. Some pepperiness portends a very slight but sharp whiff of alcohol.
As with the nose, so with the taste - a huge amount of banana. More of alcohol presence than I caught whiff of, but it contributes nicely to the flavor profile, with a sharpness and warming sensation. Some pepper. A wheat graininess.
Medium carbonation and body, with a bready mouthfeel.
I liked this a lot, and there was some well-appreciated (by me) complexity, but the banana phenols may have provided too heavy and one-sided a note to this weizenbock's profile.
