Pretty bad beer, I think I might got a bad batch because it has good ratings. Very acid in the taste and a bit astringent in the after taste. Smells and looks right for the style.

Pours out a dark brown with a frothy tan head.

Smell. Dry and roasted malts are what's dominant, with some smokiness. Under that is a touch of clove.

Taste. Flavor stays dry with roasted and burnt malts, but initially stays light. But after a couple of seconds, the taste of cigarettes jumps out and completely dominates the flavor. Aftertaste continues as if i have been smoking.

Mouthfeel. body is medium and lively with carbonation.

Overall, the flavor of cigarette smoke is the dominant flavor and not appetizing. I would say it is a defected bottle, but i just dont see how it is. Perhaps one day i may try it again, but as of now i wont, nor will i recommend it.

This was $2.99 for .5l @ Bev-Mo, and I decided to throw one in the cart with the usual suspects.
Poured into a Paulaner weiss glass. Big, frothy 2 inch head and lots of foam in bottle using conventional weissbier pouring tech. It pours really dark- like a porter, darker than a dunkelweiss. Aroma is smoky-malty. Head retention lasted through entire glass despite me dropping a lemon round in at the 1/2way point.
Good mouth feel, but very smoky taste. Reminds of a Rauchbier, which I don't like. I would call it Rauchweizen to characterize adequately. The smokiness overwhelms the spice/fruit/clove elements that may or may not be in there.

After 2 pulls, I was really looking forward to a Paulaner. The Schwarzbier is unique, but not what I like. If you wanna dark weizen, Franziskaner's Dunkelweiss absolutely blows this one away!!

I found this refridgerated bottled at the Bamberg train station.
Best before 20.04.06.

A: Murky, dark brown/black; a little creamy, off-white head, a little retention & lace.

S: Cider & fusil alcohol. Like a fermentation gone wrong!

T: Dry, cidery, with only a hint of banana bread.

M: Light to moderate body is chalky and acidic. Carbonation is moderate.

D: Definitely not impressed.

Rocky off-white head.
Old cola-coffee colored head.
Stale instant coffee aroma, hershe bar chocolate and stale coffee flavor. Odd citrus and weird yeast flavor.
Overly excited cola mouthfeel.
This is bad. The bottle must be split between 5 victims, as none of us alone are strong enough to finish it.
