A great looking beer on the pour. Near black, but very dark brown in color with an excellent head of off-white. Great stickage. Head stays and stays.

Aroma is of clove and bread. Very nice nose. Somewhat minty and bannana-like. Smells great.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth.

Taste is balanced and good. Some bannana-like flavors.
Malty and sweet. A slight cola flavor.

A great beer.

Pours a ruddy brown with glints of burnt orange/burgundy edges when held against the light. Blossoming cream colored head that stays at 1 1/2"

Scents are chocolate covered lemon cookies with hints of vanilla, banana & clove. Heavy on the chocolate component - nice.

The deep roasted flavors follow from the scent. A faint chocolate flavor is held up against the fruity & somewhat sweet wheat malt backdrop. A strong leathery flavor creeps up as the dark roasted malt flavors diminish. No spiciness detected which was apparent in the nose.

Mouthfeel is very good. The medium body has strikingly fine carbonation, but not so much carbonation though.

Drinkability is a dream if you like dark roasted wheat malt and not a lot of carbonation.

Overall a great beer that I'm very delighted I found at the Cloverleaf in Metro Detroit. The leathery flavor is quite unique and a bit puzzling, but I think I like it more now that I'm close to finishing the .5 liter bottle. Definitely will buy more in the future.

Pedro Ximenes solera brown -- dark -- with a hissing tower of foam. Lemon and herbal tea aromas pick up parched black coffee, toast and charred black bananas elements. Limber, bitter roast flavors have a juicy core and are battered with stormy waves of prickly gas. Crunchy green and red apple juice flavors (I believe these are considered "esters"). Dry, light bodied and lemony with roasty bitterness that persists. This is like Hefeweizen with a shot of espresso, only it seems to work ... in a Cuban summer patio sort of way ... with roast pig on a spit.

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.

Comes in a tapered brown half liter bottle with a navy blue and gold label featuring a monk holding a Weissbier glass. The actual name of the beer is "Schwarz mit feiner Hefe" (Black with fine yeast). Purity law, of course. Best before 9/30/04, I opened it on 4/16/04.

Beautiful to behold. Cloudy dark caramel under a 2.5 finger tan contoured head that settles to about half a pencil, then lasts and lasts. Great lacing most of the way down. The nose is crisp with spice, orange and yeast. The mouth is prickly and not too light. The taste is as it should be - nice spice, banana and clove, with just a hint of sweet caramel. All of this is followed by a mellow hop bitterness that lingers very nicely, blending with the spiciness to form a smooth mosaic of pleasure throughout the mouth. Nice.
