This is an excellent dark wheat beer.

Not quite fully black, it has a huge, creamy tan head slowly shrinking.

Aroma is rich coffee candy, chocolate.

Taste is balanced, zesty-winy, roasty grain (gentle but long-lasting), not strong but well-rounded and very engaging, a little like a schwarzbier.

Pours an opaque, murky dark brown-black with a 1 inch foamy dark khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt and some slight cocoa bean aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, burnt coffee, and slight cocoa bean flavors. There is a very mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the smell is somewhat lacking compared to the taste.

Kapuziner Bavarian Schwarz-Weizen has a very thick, roiling, beige head and a cloudy, dark-brown appearance, with a little bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of dark, brown wheat bread, banana, and white pepper. Taste is also of brown wheat bread, charcoal, some subtle banana, white pepper, yeast, and bitterness. Mouthfeel is mostly watery, and Kapuziner Black Wheat finishes wet and raw. Overall, this beer is just too watery in taste, although it does get a little better as it warms up. I suppose it’s worth trying.

Pours a molasses/cola deep brown, with a half finger khaki head. It fades, but laces the sides as I drink.

The nose is incredibly sweet. Not QUITE plum/fruit-ish, but kind of a molasses/gingerbread dough sweet. Undertones of wheat and chocolate.

The taste is underlined by wheat mustiness. There's some faint chocolate in there as well. Maybe some roast, and that kind of sickly sweetness present in the nose.

Thinner than I expected. Good carbonation, quite drinkable. Overall it's a decent beer, but nothing to write home about. Probably won't get one again, but would drink it if someone offered me one.

Appearance: Dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. It's a nice head but could hang around a little longer and lace better.

Smell: Licorice, brown sugar, toasted malt, sweet coffee.

Taste: Mollasses, sweet toasted bark.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice carbonation and stinginess.

Overall: This is a great, tasty beer. It's sweet, but not too sweet. Nice blend of tastes. I'm impressed.

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 a half inch beige head which faded fast. Dark raw umber brown body, almost coffee. Smells of malt and bready yeast. The tast is an interesting combo with roasted malt, cola, sour rye, even a little tart fruit. There's an interesting acidic sour zing which reminds me of the start of a mild sour beer. The body seems creamy like a stout yet is very light. Finish is fairly long. I was really pretty impressed.
