nice pour, good head, great color. Tastes closer to a light porter than a wheat. Not much wheat taste or character here. Overall, very nice flavor with a crisp, clean finish. Some malty and possibly some choclately flavors. Overall, a well done beer sitting above average on the scale !!!!

a: Dark, muddy brown; poured with frothy, khaki colored head.

s: Stout like roasty cocoa and coffee, not much else.

t: Same as the smell, nothing resembling a dunkelweizen. Heavy roasty malts that belong in a stout and a hint of tart grains.

m: Full bodied but fizzy rather than creamy carbonation.

o: As a dunkel, this misses by a mile. I don't think it even uses a hefe yeast. As a wheat stout, this is good beer.

Im not going to go through a full tasting review of this beer, Im just too disappointed, this does not taste in anyway like a dunkelweiss

It has far too much roasted malt for a dunkelweiss (coffee, chocolate) and not enough of the characteristic yeasty flavors (clove,banana), quite a disappointment

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with little light transparency and half finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, mildly nutty, slight sour note. Flavor of toasted and caramel malt, hints of chocolate and charred coffee, finishes with light toastiness and light grassy hops. Medium bodied. The malt profile seems closer to a mild porter than a weizen; I'm not getting much wheat character at all. Flavor has nice toasty malt and light chocolate elements, but seems to finish thin with a light sourness. An OK dark malty beer, but not really meeting the dunkelweizen style, and a bit odd for that. This is the second Leavenworth wheat style ale that seemed to be more of a traditionally malted style than a weizen. Odd. OK, but better choices if you're looking for a dunkelweizen.

Pours an appealing dark brown to black with a quickly dissipated head. Mouthfeel is bubbly like most wheat beers. Flavor is lacking for a dunkel the malty taste overpowers the effervescent nature of a wheat. Not bad but not great and I'm only reviewing this based on 1 beer picked up at Total Wine from the warm shelf.

I picked this up from Total Wine along with several other wheat beers. I'm a big fan of Hefes as well as Dunkelweizens (though to a lesser extent).

I will preface this by noting this may have been a bad bottle. You never know.

This was quite disappointing to say the least. I poured, slowly, carefully, only to watch everything turn to foam. So, after waiting a bit for it to settle I finished the pour. I took a sniff, I was assailed by something I can only describe as "vomit-like." I took a few sips and was displeased. A weizen, even Dunkelweizen, shouldn't be as hop-forward as this. Aftertaste was strange and unpleasant as well.

I did not finish this one. It's not out of the question that I had a bad bottle though. You never know how long something is sitting around. There was no bottling or best-by date on the bottle that I could find.
