Served in a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a little over a one-finger milky-white head. The head sticks around for a good while before dissipating into a patchy layer on top. Lacing is decent.

Smells very smoky up front, with some dark fruit aromas sneaking in there from time to time.

Tastes good. Smoky flavors are at the forefront at first, then as the beer warms the dark fruit flavors come out a bit more. Slight bitter aftertaste, and both the fruit and smoke flavors stick around for a bit.

Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is at a good level, but I would like a bit more thickness. It still goes down pretty smoothly.

Drinkability is good. Both flavors work well together, and it really is an easy-drinking beer.

Overall I'm glad I tried this one before Twain's runs out. Worth a shot.

Very solid new offering from Twain's.
Served in a 13oz chalice. Cloudy medium brown, topped by a thin tan/white soapy head. Nose is like liquid smoke and malts. Taste is quite smoky, like the malts were left in a smoker for a while. Slight fruity sweetness, and little hints of sharp hops.
Mouthfeel is a tad thin, but not bad. Really drinkable.

This one comes out of the tap a rich, opaque sable brown with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled beige head. Aroma is malty with a strong smoky overtone. Flavor is lip-smacking, malty and wheaty with hints of smoke, barbecue and even Coca-Cola. This smooth dunkelweizen leaves a lively aftertaste.

Served in a tulip on 08/15/08. 6.8 percent abv. Very dark brown...had to hold up to the light. 2 lucious fingers of beige white head. Aroma of campfire smoke. Taste of lovely roasted malt, with a side of smoke and a side of soft banana. Finishes dry...very unique for the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy, chestnut brown body with a small, though sustaining, ivory-colored head.

Smell: Lightly chocolate wheat malt scent with notes of bananas, cloves, and the aroma of handcrafted leather in a smoke-filled room.

Taste: Lightly sweet, smokey, leathery maltiness that's even a touch meaty. Bananas and a pinch of cloves. Vague tastes of dry caramel and chocolate. Spicy hops, slight bitterness. I was too distracted by the heavy rain and the upcoming long trek back to my car to record my thoughts on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

Drinkability: Fairly tasty and an overall solid beer.
