This looks a bit like prune juice except it maintains a nice white head on top.

Aroma gives of a raisin-figginess. Hints of pare and bananas as well.

Smooth and somewhat chewy mouthfeel. This is definitely creamy but not really heavy. Very mild chocolate aftertaste but not at all bitter. The mild milkiness is pleasant. Carbonation is a little too soft in my opinion and the drink is watery.

The dark color contrasts the mild flavor profile nicely. This is very drinkable but I tend to prefer bolder beers.

Great beer. It was like a great Schwarzbier but with the added flavors and tickle of a great Weizen. Almost like Monchof Schwarzbier made love to some Vitus and had a healthy offspring. I had it in a glass as always, but it was funmny to read the text on the back which read something to the tune of: "Hefe-weissbier should always be enjoyed from a glass, never the bottle". Looked nice and dark with substantial aromatic head. Carbonation was nice and the drinking was refreshing. Good stuff.

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!!

Dark, rich looking like a stout. Surprised how thin it tastes, almost watery. It certainly looks like the type of dark beer for a cold winter's night, but the taste is closer to a thin pilsner or even a Hefe. It just felt like it was missing that richness a dark beer usually delivers. Even so, I thought it was pretty enjoyable, and is great if you want a dark beer without that dark beer weight in taste. But it can be deceptive if you want a dark beer and all the elements a dark, heavy beer delivers.

Poured into a glass with a generous head. The head was maintained for a while and it did have some unexpected lace. At first glance the color seemed dark, however when held up to the light it appears to be a deep ruby color.

Smell was of faint raisins, plums, and a bit roasted. Taste was mellow and not at all overpowering. A little bland for my taste, but good. I got a little diacetyl, but did not feel that it was unacceptable. Aftertaste was sweet and a little plummy. A nice change all in all.

Aggressive pour from a pop-top bottle into a weizen glass results in a nice 3 finger, tan colored head.
A- Cloudy, dark brown. As I hold the glass in the air, little or no light passes through. Looks tasty though. As the head begins to fade, the glass is left with a light lacing, almost like a cobweb.
S- Roasted malt. To my suprise, I can't pick out much wheat. I was expecting to.
T- Much like the smell. Roasted malt.
M- Light, and a little silky. I can feel the carbonation tingle in my mouth just a little bit.
D- Very drinkable. Goes down smooth.

All in all I would consider this average. I don't think I would necessarily recommend this, but I certainly wouldn't knock it either.
