Perambulator Dunkelweissbock was served from a 22 oz bottle that was filled off the tap at the brewpub a few hours earlier. In a pint glass, the beer was an intriguing deep and rich ruby-orange hue, and was topped by an ample dark tan head. The appetizing nose presented a well-developed wheaty, buttery, lightly smokey/roasty maltiness with occasional whisps of fruity/berry and hop notes. On the palate, a lightly nutty and roasty caramel malt body let loose with pronounced sweetness, then gained smokey tangy berry accents in the transition to the nicely bittered, spicy hopped finish...a very nice assortment of tasty flavors. The body was a little thin for the flavors and character of the beer, but was otherwise smooth and satisfying. The higher sweetness level of this beer decreased the drinkability (for my tastes). Overall, a well-developed and complex beer in both flavor and nose. I am a little unsure of its placement in the weissbock category (though I am not throughly experienced with these), as this beer resembled a scottish ale in regards to its malt profile. It is possible that I was poured the wrong beer: a scottish ale was also available at the brewpub. Another sampling will be needed to resolve this.

Poured into a schooner at Brouwer's Cafe in Seattle. Funny, for all the amazing IPAs out here, a dunkelweiss impressed me the most. Mahogany, thin but persistent head. Aroma of ripe bananas, with a hint of earthiness. The first sip seems so sweet, just a huge ripe banana flavor, but not quite as much clove spiciness as a typical weissbock. A warming bourbon flavor is also present. Where this beer differentiates itself from most weissbocks I've had is that the finish is far drier than one would expect -- not cloying whatsoever. As the beer warms, a pure German roasted barley malt flavor shines through, as if I were chewing on the grain itself, layered with a cinnamon toast flavor. The mouthfeel is perfect for this style of beer, and the drinkability is off the charts. As clean and pure a beer as I've ever had. Remarkable. Seek and enjoy.

These guys are good. There is no way to tell that this beer is as strong as it is.

Rich head with tight small bubbles. Deep garnet colored. Aroma is amazing!!! Rich clove, ripe banana, caramel, slight dark fruit (plum). The armoa stays for the entire show. Flavor delivers all of the above in order. Then the alcohol comes. Just enough to clear my palate and make me take another drink. Only thing that got me was that it felt a little heavy.

Aventinus says what?
