Bottled in September of 2008.

Pours a black with a bit of brown to it. Tiny bubbles make up a thick finger or two of head atop the brew in a medium brown color. The foam settles after a couple minutes and leaves a bit of lacing on the walls of the glass, a ring clinging to the edge of the glass, and a small layer coating the top of the brew.

Smells of a mix of chocolate and wheat malt. Bit of light cocoa and a touch of banana. Small hint of dark caramel just a touch of toasted malt. Little bit of coffee in the nose too.

Smooth chocolatey malt up front with wheat malt coming through nicely. Bit of spice and banana from the yeast. Touch of bubble gum and a hint of coffee. Some mild cocoa and roasted malt and a light sweetness.

Carbonation is still nice and on the fizzy side. Not sure age did much to this brew. No sign of the 8.4% in the aroma or flavor. Nice weizenbock.

Thanks to midaszero for the opportunity to try this beer, it was great to meet you!

Pours dark with a decent inch of foam. Good retention.

Huge chocolate on the nose with some yeast, banana, roasted malts, grain, and hints of smoke in the background. Caramel also quite dominant with a buttery touch. I’m also detecting some nutty aromas, macadamias, almonds, and pecans. Really good aroma overall.

It starts off with more smoke on the taste than the aroma followed by roasted malts, chocolate, banana, and some sweet dark fruits. A little alcohol heat in the back of the throat. A little zesty and tangy wheat in the aftertaste.

Soft carbonation on the palate yet there’s a stinging sensation on the tongue which numbs it for a few seconds.
