This Dunklveizen, like Michael Jordan, DUNKED over the competition. It was spicy, dark, and bold. My girlfriend, who doesn't like beer, LIKED this one. I mean actually LIKED IT! Men, get your witches to piece pizza if you want to convince them you don't have a problem

Bottoms up!

Appearance: Pours from the growler a medium amber/brown body, moderately hazed, with an off-white head.

Smell: Malty notes of chocolate, caramel, and toast followed fast by a salvo of cloves, with soft fruity tones closing it out.

Taste: Darkened grains glazed with sweetish caramel and a thin coating of chocolate. Growing phenolic clove accent. Fruity touches of raisins, apple, and 'nanas. Light herbal hops, medium-low bitterness. For a moment it seems like a late-breaking kick of malts my be pending, but, it remains earthy, drying into the finish with cloves and pepper-dusted banana slices at the tail end.

Mouthfeel: Just a hair over medium-bodied and just a bit above medium carbonation.

Overall: A very solid dunkelweizen.

Served in a weizen glass at the brewpub.

Just like I like my women... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sienna topped by over a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, sweet toffee, clove, and light banana peel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more clove, and hints of light black pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla bean coming in for some added complexity. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a sorta/kinda grainy feel, and a dry finish. Overall, a nice d-weizen, one that doesn't overdo it on the yeast character, but also maintains a nice level of spice and whatnot. Good times.

In the world of Dunkelweiss, yeast is king. I wasn't able to detect too much of the German hefe yeast that I so desired. A bit muted but a tasty beer nonetheless. The dark malts were not too pronounced, almost true to a German Warsteiner in that both are black without tasting very black at all. I was looking for a little more yeasty, dark malt, wheatiness from this beer. An appoachable beer for the style.
