A Bavarian specialty of dark colored, top fermented yeast beer with typical yeast cloudiness. Its unmistakable and well balanced taste is due to an excellent choice of dark aromatic malt and goes very well with traditional Bavarian dishes.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear (80% clarity) deep and dusky brown/bronzed color with a massive off-white head. SRM of 18. (4.00)

Aroma: Strong aromas of wheat and yeast upfront. Some sweeter orange, cloves, and bread spices underneath.

Flavor: Moderate flavors of wheat and yeast upfront. Bready and yeasty. Some hints of caramel, and earthy notes. A dry finish.

Feel: Medium to lighter bodied, strong carbonation. Yeasty, leans clean and dry.

Overall: Pretty decent Dunkelweizen. Not quite as dark or sweet as I'd expect. A bit lighter, cleaner and yeasty. Drinkable. (Rating: 3.99)

On tap at Beef and Brew in Geneva, NY.

This one pours a golden caramel brown color, with a small white head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like banana bread, baking spice, clove, a touch of dark fruit, and some nice breadiness.

This has a wonderfully wheaty and malty profile that really invokes a toasty dark banana bread, with light spicing. There’s a creamy almost vanilla-like note, too.

This is creamy, but light on the palate, with a nice drinkability.

I really wish I saw this style more often. This is a great example of it.

Dark brown hazy color, with a huge creamy off white head like ice cream. Great retention.
Not getting much aroma. Some raisin and prune and brown bread.
Banana bread, some vanilla, clove, prune, raisin, hay. Super creamy and fluffy mouthfeel, though. Sheesh.

A good Dunkelweizen. Not blowing me away, but not bothering me, either. Maybe that's all fine. Dat mouthfeel, though.

A: Pours a dark amber brown. A dense tan head forms with good retention and lace left left behind.
S: A simple, but enjoyable aroma. Banana esters, light spicy clove, and baked brown bread.
T: Like the nose, the banana esters and light spice are up front. It becomes like chocolate covered bananas after a while. Baked brown bread mingles in there as well. Love the balance, its pretty classic for the style.
M/O: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Just enough crisp bite, but becomes ultra smooth as this breaths. I can come back to this with ease.

I always love a good Dunkelweizen but they are hard to come by anymore. Glad I came across this. Well done, and spot on for the style as far as I'm concerned.

Pour is a slightly murky deep amber with a huge, pillowy, creamy cap of every so slightly khaki foam. Great retention.
Nose is clove, banana, hint of toasted malt / chocolately
Taste follows. Banana and clove of a hefeweizen, but a little more played down as some light roasted malt comes through.
Smooth and easy to drink.

Pretty classic Dunkel here, which is what you'd expect from a Bavarian import. Slight banana notes, decent head on the pour. The color is a bit lighter / light-brown than I'd normally expect. Feels a bit more carbonated than other variants in the style. But, really, this is nit-picking -- it's right in that "hey, you know what I want right now? A classic Dunkel" wheelhouse.

Brown color with light passing through the center. Moderate off-white head. Predictable to lighter lacing in the form of random spots.

Brown bread smell with light banana in the background. No notable bitterness.

Relatively dry flavor with an expectedly lighter body. Some chocolate to the tongue. The banana is present but not lasting. The finish is more of the same, leaving a shorter aftertaste.

L: Poured into a Willi from at .5L can, pillowy head but not terribly long lasting, SRM looks like ~15, properly hazy for the style

S: Classic banana, moderate/light clove, light malty caramel, perhaps more banana esters than expected for the style

T: Pleasant banana bread dominates, balanced in the middle, light finish

F: Light, pillowy mouthfeel is pleasant at first, medium body takes over, finish is balanced, on the lower end of effervescence for the style

O: I enjoyed this beer very much, better that my objective analysis
